Kabbalah And Beliefs, Part 12

laitman_444How Do Kabbalists Relate to the World?

Question: There is an attitude to the world and to others. What is the difference between the way a Kabbalist relates to the world and the way ordinary people do?

Answer: The Kabbalist treats the world as the work of the Creator. The world is an example of how I relate to the Creator. A good attitude toward people, toward the world, means a good attitude toward the Creator. In principle, nothing exists for a Kabbalist except himself and the Creator.

Question: Baal HaSulam writes in his article The Solution“The religious form of all the nations should first obligate its members to bestowal upon each other to the extent that the life of one’s friend will come before one’s own life, of “Love thy friend as thyself.” One will not take pleasure in society more than a backward friend.

This will be the collective religion of all the nations that will come within the framework of communism. However, besides that, each nation may follow its own religion and tradition; one must not interfere in the other.”

So do all Kabbalists relate to this that way or only Baal HaSulam?

Answer: Kabbalists act according to the law “there is no coercion in spirituality.” Each from his point in the heart, from his character, from his egoism, will gradually reach equivalence of form with the Creator and will enter that place in the general system of private souls where he will complement them and will interact with them in complete harmony.

Question: That is, a person can engage in Kabbalah, explore his selfish nature, work with the upper force as a law of nature, and at the same time, be in some specific traditions, religious frameworks, and one will not interfere with the other?

Answer: Of course. A person can have any religious framework. Religion in this case is simply considered as culture.

Question: Does this refer to the root of the human soul?

Answer: Yes, to any manifestations of a person. One can worship anyone and do anything, it does not matter. The main thing is that a person accepts the basic tenets of Kabbalah. If one fulfills them, then one will gradually reveal the true world.

I met with Joshua Goldstein, Chairman of the US Division of Herut North America, to discuss the origins of anti-Semitism and the essence of being Jewish.

Over the centuries, this principle faded and was replaced by the physical performance of the traditions. From this point, Jews lost the true sense of their identity, and now, the only way for them to become “as one man with one heart” again …
…. is to make conscious efforts leading to that unity. If they do, they will build a perfect society, and the entire world will benefit from it.

The name “Jews” come from the word for “united” (“Yehudi”). It means that the main feature of a perfectly functioning Jewish society is unity. This is not communism, where everyone is supposed to be equal. Rather, it is a mosaic, which is more beautiful the more different pieces
… it includes. It sounds beautiful, but what we see now is that it is impossible for Jews to unite other than before some kind of serious threat.
Why?
The problem lies in the roots of the Jewish identity. Jews originated in ancient Babylon. They appeared as a group of representatives of the 70 nations of ancient Babylon who agreed to follow Abraham’s teaching.
Regardless of their differences, they united around the principle “love will cover all transgressions,” meaning that building good and loving relations between people covers the destructive and disintegrating power of the human ego.

A mother cares for a baby because she gets satisfaction from it by her nature. But this isn’t bestowal that the wisdom of Kabbalah talks about. With spiritual bestowal, I don’t receive any benefit or material satisfaction—everything is aimed at the one to whom I wish to bestow.

Real bestowal isn’t like bestowal in our world, which can happen even against my desire, out of fear or another calculation. This is not bestowal. Bestowal is when I have no personal benefit or satisfaction from it.

1,000 Square Meters of Love: The World’s Largest Sukkah!

The world’s largest Sukkah can be found on the roof of @Kabbalahinfo in Petah Tikva. The giant thatch spreads over 1,000 square meters, and is built according to the guidelines of Kabbalist Yehuda Ashlag (Baal HaSulam).

World’s Largest Sukkah

Hundreds of people from Israel and around the world gather every evening in our Sukkah to celebrate together under one roof, and over 10,000 people will celebrate in the “World’s Largest Sukkah” throughout this holiday.

Thousands of miles may stand between our hearts as everyone is stuck in their own worldview, but once a year we come together and a thatch of peace covers all our differences, revealing the beauty and splendor of the connections between us.
Happy #Sukkot2019

Dear Jewish People:
We are together before the greatest and most important day of the year. Why? Because on this day we can correct our relationships between us, toward reality and the entire world. #YomKippur

If we unite, covering all transgressions with love, this year will be good for us. Such a connection must be achieved daily, every day becoming warmer, genuinely closer to each other!
Good year to all, good entry in the Book of Life!

If one lives in the past, for he knows nothing about the future, then the period from the beginning of the year, Rosh Hashanah, to the Judgement Day, Yom Kippur, is fearsome. The science of Kabbalah is facing the future and talks about these days as the most beautiful and kind. Rosh Hashanah is the beginning of a good change.

My new article on @medium “How to Rise Above Time, Space, and Motion and Communicate With the Dead“:

#predictions #success #wisdomofkabbalah

We are entering a new year—new Malchut, the system that controls us and receives feedback. When we are connected, we can affect this system and the future becomes an exciting ascent to the level of infinite attainment, the feeling of immortality and the common system of nature!

Friends!
We’ve had uneasy years. We tried to understand how to change our fate. Let’s make the new year a year of new attainments when we control ourselves and our destiny, and we shall see a beautiful future before us and how we can advance toward it. Everything is in our hands!

🇮🇱 The government of unity should include opposing parties that, with wisdom and understanding, realize how to achieve connection and unity. Like a family where everyone has their own opinions, but for the sake of a common goal we need to discuss each issue and come to a mutually acceptable solution.
#Israel #israelelections2019

There is no other way to succeed except for creating a government of national unity made of parties that really want to unite and are capable of sacrificing their interests on every issue for it. Then it will result in concessions and in completion of each other.
#israelelections

#IsraElex19v2
“Just as their faces are different, so are their thoughts and desires.”
We are all completely different, initially unity cannot be achieved directly through our similarities. We need something that connects us with each other, so that we have a “cause” for which to cancel our differences.
#israel #elections

A few days ago I spoke to Prof. Ichak Adizes, a top world expert in the field of management. Adizes says that love is the solution to all of life’s problems, hatred divides us and elicits rejection, while love is the key to success in #business and organizations.

It is impossible to pull out one resistor or transistor from the computer and understand the construction of the entire system from it. If we feel the need to expand and start thinking about all the world groups —this is a sign that we are ready to achieve a connection in the ten on a higher level.

We are working to expand our global connection (Kli). In order to correctly unite with your ten with greater precision and inner strength, scrutinizing additional details and eventually revealing the Creator in it, we must care about a wider circle.

Corrections go beyond knowledge and wishes of egoism. Our work is to come back to “There is none else besides Him.” In a place where the Creator is lacking, I must add Him. When I don’t do this, I ask forgiveness and demand strength, understanding, and sensitivity in order to see the possibility to correct.

During Slichot (repentance), we ask forgiveness for the inability to annul our egoism for the sake of our unity.
All our actions are simple, but due to their large number, constant efforts to annul ourselves and connect with each other, we achieve spiritual attainment and advancement.

By establishing connections between us, helping each other, we enliven the system of Adam Rishon—the common soul starts to work and breathe. We will feel our dependence on each other and the obligation to care for everyone. This is a new stage of the work, when each individual Kli can grow correctly.

Through the common system, we will feel a stronger manifestation of the upper force: how it directs us and works on us. While remaining in our ten, we must start caring for all the groups, for the common spiritual Kli, the system of the common soul of Adam. The Creator will be revealed in it.

The era of personal development is over, when a separate soul was able to ascend. None of the groups is able to grow individually. All of a group’s development and strength of spirit, starting from this time on, will depend on the awakening of the common Kli. This is the call of the times.

Improving the world group, strengthening, expanding ties between all the groups, overcoming and rising above everything that separates us, covering with love—depends on the growth of a large common connection. This is the reason everyone will correctly advance on their own spiritual path.

Everyone must annul before others to achieve connection, but doing so he does not cancel his individuality, his character or strength. He has to display his given unique desire to unite and become an example, so that everyone becomes an example. This is how common unity is achieved

Everyone must advance for the sake of common unity. Each person should care to help others show their uniqueness to the fullest, for all the qualities to come through as distinct, vibrant, flaming, portraying all the differences and connections between them. Our differences grow in the measure of the development of our connection.

It is important to awaken all the groups and individuals in Europe so that everyone feels that they are an important, vibrant part of the European system. Otherwise, it is impossible to create a common spiritual vessel (Kli). The soul of Adam Rishon is a common body with many qualities, none of which can be neglected.

On September 20-22 in Bologna (#Italy) the #Kabbalah congress took place, small but powerful. It was called “The Joy of Unity”—the joy was palpable. It came from the warmth of the hearts united in one big heart. It was important to strengthen the Italian group before the big European congress
#unity

Today #Europe is in need of support, for it is undergoing a profound social and cultural crisis. Mass immigration led to the loss of identity, relation between the countries became very strained…. In order to unite, Europe must create warm heartfelt relations between the nations.

For the first time in history, an obsolete model of society, although dysfunctional since the 90’s, has not been replaced by a new one as has been happening in all times. #Kabbalah: This is because our progress has always been in the development of egoism. And now it must change its foundation—#development of the opposite to egoism.

We have no choice. We are all egoists. But the situation with the safety of #Israel requires a broad coalition—all right-wingers must unite and lead the country. Now every person must show that they are rising above their private interests for communal, for everyone’s sake.

There’s no need to cancel or hide our differences. We don’t need to flatter or agree with other’s opinions. We must bridge the gap between us, spread an umbrella of love over the disagreements, because “Love will cover all crimes.” Love makes us a nation. Love is the right choice.
#love #israel 🇮🇱

We have to recall a single source, a single law of nature—unity of people according to the great law of #Torah—“love your neighbor as yourself.”
#Bible

🇮🇱 A choice that is truly free should be renewed at any moment in time, and not be dependent on the earthly government. At any moment it’s worth pausing for a second to ask: What do we live for? Why do we exist? Who controls our life? Who is really at the head?
#IsraElex19v2

🇮🇱 We are one people. We must regain our sanity and destroy our main enemy—fighting with each other. We cannot depend on the mercy of any leaders. We need to depend on the strength of the society, the power of our connection—this is where our salvation lies.
#IsraElections2019
#israelelections2019 #israel

🇮🇱 We must put an end to the struggle for the “throne,” the games of vanity and pride, and choose the only unifying force that dominates all powers of our world—the Upper force. We must emphasize the main part of being Jewish, the reason we became a nation—the importance of unity.
#IsraElections2019 #Jewish #unity

Confusion is in the air after the end of #IsraElections2019. After 70 years of existence of the state of #Israel 🇮🇱, we have reached a dead end. The best solution now is to unite the forces of Likud, Kaḥol Lavan, and Israel Our Home. These three parties have clear national goals, and are conceptually similar to each other.
