By acquiring the intention to bestow, we open up a path for the light to pass through us to others, and the light starts to circulate between us to the extent of the intention, in our unified organism, the Soul. In principle, we do not bestow or receive light. We only open up a path for it with our intentions by being similar to the Creator.
Every person’s aim is to become a transmitter of light. That’s how the world becomes united. Every person will be a pipeline transmitting light. The intention to bestow opens up the path to the light. To this degree, one who transmits is connected to the Creator. The right connection with the light’s filling is called a soul.
A Kabbalist is surrounded by billions of people. He feels light, the Creator, flowing through him. He is a conduit, connecting the Creator to every person, even though they do not feel it. A Kabbalist enjoys being the Creator’s conduit—this is his reward.
The only thing you can do is connect others to the Creator, ask for them, transmit the upper light to them, fulfill them. Therein lies the entire essence of Kabbalah—the wisdom of reception. Therefore the wisdom of Kabbalah is a wisdom about reception. “Kabbalah” is from the word “to receive.” But not for one’s own sake, and that means—to fulfill. From Twitter, 7/31/19
The world’s correction starts with mourning its destruction. The Creator momentarily brought us to the corrected state of the Temple after exit from egoism, Egypt, and then destroyed it, the Temple, returning us to even greater egoism, so we would be convinced of its harm and would ask the Creator for its correction. From Twitter, 7/29/19
The world can be corrected only through unification of the nation of Israel, from which the quality of unity will spread to the whole world. The world is needing this more and more—and therefore anti-Semitism is growing. Unity is the Torah of Israel. Redemption is exit from egoism, hatred into love.
The condition of being liberated from our nature, egoism, the only evil in the world, exit from exile inside it, is for us to reveal its evil precisely in it—revelation of evil.
Jews cannot escape their mission—just as they came out of egoism on their own in the past, they returned to it in oder to pull out all the nations!
The world today is going through realization of humanity’s egoism (Pharaoh’s rule) as harmful to all the nations. The aim of the existence of the state and people of Israel must be revealed in order to reveal Kabbalah as the only method of the world’s correction. This is why the BB [Bnei Baruch] organization exists!
The quality of nature, egoism, called Pharaoh, must itself recognize the need for its own change to the opposite quality—altruism, called the Creator. Gradual transformation of reception into bestowal is called performing a commandment.
This understanding must be revealed in the whole world!
Pharaoh—egoism himself opens up the exit from him—Egypt, from slavery of existence in egoism. Our egoistic nature must become convinced of its own evil, harm—and of the need to acquire the quality of the Creator that’s opposite to it.
That is the extent to which we need to disseminate the essence and goal of Kabbalah!
Baal HaSulam, “Messiah’s Horn”: the condition for the world’s redemption from the evil of egoism is the nations’ recognition of “Torah” as the method of unity—”And the earth will be filled by the knowledge.” Likewise, exodus from Egypt—egoism happened because “Pharaoh—egoism recognized the Creator and correction”—and allowed exit from itself. From Twitter, 7/28/19
Liberal mass media in Israel are filtering information about the world’s hatred of our country. World maps are being redrawn, showing Palestine instead of Israel. The world is becoming increasingly hostile to Israel.
It’s time to realize that this trend won’t be remedied by hiding it, but only by uniting inside the country.
Liberals of all countries are demonstrating that they do not tolerate other opinions, that they hate everyone besides themselves. As a result of humanity’s development toward correction, liberals will become a minority in the world’s leading countries.
The 1st and 2nd Temples were destroyed on the path from above-downwards. But the 3rd Temple has to be built by us from below-upwards. From the destruction of the 1st and 2nd Temples, we have retained broken (egoistic) desires, which have intermixed with each other. Now we just have to ask for their correction.
To elicit the general correction, we must insistently ask to acquire the force of connection between everyone. Along with attempts to unite amongst ourselves. And don’t stop while revealing greater and greater separation and impossibility of connection. Till complete despair! Then the real plea will emerge!
We must reveal the Temple’s destruction and resurrection within us as destruction of the connection between us and its resurrection. Correction lies only in unity. Unity comes from above, as written that the 3rd Temple will descend from above. But only by the force of our plea to unite!
It was a joy meeting my students from the Ethiopian community. I emphasize with their pain from the bottom of my heart. The wound still bleeds and divides Israeli society, but I hope that the street protests will be replaced by dialogue and mutual understanding. After all, we are all one family.
It is through our unity that we build the Third Temple—the unity of all nations. The main thing is to feel the need to unite, for unity comes from above. Collecting all the desires for unity is the making of humanity. It exists in spirituality and must materialize. From Twitter, 7/26/19
A nation is a group of people united by an instinctive sense of community and striving for connection, as those born from the same parents. #Jews have no such feeling! Instead, there is a feeling of “brothers in misfortune” from the hatred toward them. Striving toward connection vanquishes hatred…
There is a blood connection between people, familial—corporeal. And there is a spiritual link between the souls. It is born in the connection between people for the sake of revealing the Creator. When it’s broken, people become strangers. They can be united only by the common hatred—#Antisemitism
Abraham revealed the Creator at the age of 40, and called upon all Babylon with it. Hundreds of thousands joined him and were called the “House of Abraham.” This is the beginning of a nation that knew the Creator. (Rambam. Yad Hasaka. Ilkhot Avoda Zarah, p1, 7-16)
This is how the #Jewish nation was formed.
All our attempts to change the world for the better (replacing our food, energy, technologies, finances…) will fail. The world will continue plunging downwards, until after many failures and much suffering, we will realize that it’s not the world around us that we must change, but only our relationships—and we set out to re-educate ourselves. From Twitter, 7/25/19
The Israeli people’s insensitivity to the wave of #Antisemitism Antisemitism that has already covered nearly the whole world, as well as their insensitivity to the increasing animosity toward them by #Jews in the diaspora—is an enormous threat to their existence!
The word “MITZVA“—commandment is rooted in the word “TZAVTA”—connection between people and between people and the Creator. There is no instruction from the Creator other than fulfilling the Commandment, MITZVA, of uniting among us and with the Creator.
Unknown to themselves, Jews are the ones that hold the method of the world’s correction, Kabbalah. There is no other force acting in the world besides the Creator. Since He has endowed only Jews with the possibility to change the world, he has unwillingly made them responsible for the state of the world. Don’t blame the world, but correct it!
The Creator pits the nations against the #Jews and the Jews against themselves, until they realize that it’s the upper force governing them and obliging them to unite, and through them, uniting the nations of the world. Israel is foolish to waste money and energy on propaganda to persuade the nations to change toward the state of #Israel.
Kabbalah, the method of egoism’s correction, was concealed so the nation of #Israel would intermix with the nations through earthly desires. This is why it had to leave the connection with spirituality or go into exile. That was how the #Jews intermixed with the nations, and correction became possible since the times of the Ari, the 16th century.
A #Jew hates himself for the spiritual structure that exists in him, which is called “Jew”—Yehudi, from the word “Yihud,” unity. He would like to show the world, “I am removing this quality from myself, now I’m the same as you”—but this quality cannot be removed! And that’s what perpetually bothers him…
If #Jews do not consciously come closer to one another in order to transmit the Creator’s light, the force of unity of all nations, to rise above the egoistic animate nature, then that same force of nature, the Creator, compels them to do this by awakening hatred of them #Antisemitism, in the nations.
With His light, the Creator brings out the breaches of connections between us, setting us against each other, bringing out our polarities, consequences of the soul’s breaking, so the need for unity will become more evident, for our sake and for the sake of the world’s correction. #Antisemitism brings us closer, but it is not correction!
Jews have been hated throughout all times. The hatred began the moment Jews fell from brotherly love into unfounded hatred—that is when anti-Semitism was born in the world. We are hated for the bad relationships among us since the world’s correction depends and transpires only through our connection.
Based on the fact that two natures, spiritual and corporeal, manifest and exist in us (Jews and non-Jews, but aspiring to the soul), we must show everyone how to ascend to the spiritual nature by uniting among us in groups.
Mourning the destruction of the #Temple means experiencing pain in the heart that must be felt due to one’s partaking in the destruction. Correction is possible only after recognizing the cause. #Mourning is not about a date, but about a state that prepares us for correction. We are already in the period of correction.
Even the smallest correction inside Israel cannot happen if it does not incorporate the nations of the world. Because it is precisely for them, the nations of the world, that all correction is carried out, as written, “Israel went into exile only in order to attach the souls of other nations to them.” #Israel
Every Jew, like any person, involuntarily does not wish for suffering and hatred from the society in which he lives. He wants to dissolve in society and to be treated as normal—and will therefore always be for America or for Europe, and against #Israel. And he will hide in this!
With the destruction of the Second Temple, the nation fell from the spiritual degree to the corporeal one. It no longer feels the spiritual world and exists only in our world. And their attitude to the “point in the heart” (spiritual aspiration) in them became egoistic—that is, the #Jews hate themselves, their spiritual root! From Twitter, 7/24/19
As long as egoism rules the nations, the nation of Israel will also be unable to come out of egoism into actions of bestowal. Hence, after returning to our land, we won’t receive the force of bestowal and love from above.
We will receive it only if our correction will be for the sake of the world’s correction.
(Baal HaSulam, “The Peace”)
The nations of the world should know about the order of the world’s correction so that with their pressure, they will compel Israel to fulfill its mission. Otherwise the nation of Israel won’t be able to accomplish it first. It is hence necessary to disseminate Kabbalah, the method of correction, to all the nations.
(Baal HaSulam, “Messiah’s Horn”)
Only when the citizens of Israel are filled by the upper knowledge of the Creator and qualities of bestowal, these sources will pour out through them, filling all the nations of the world.
(Baal HaSulam, Preface to the Book “Shining Face”)
I said it to the state’s leaders, but no one heeded warnings about the world’s collapse. Today, however, many already agree that the end of the world is possible and Israel will be the first to suffer. We are hence obliged to awaken the world to correction as the only salvation.
(Baal HaSulam, “The Last Generation”)
Baal Shem Tov: I asked the Messiah, when will he come? And I received a reply: when my teaching spreads outward. Just as you studied and attained, so everyone can attain. Then egoism will disappear and full correction will set in.
Baal HaSulam: We have to disclose to the nations of the world that which they expect from us. Not any earthly knowledge, but precisely the spiritual wisdom, truth and peace. In this they are ready to be our students, since this wisdom is present only in us.
Hatred of Jews is rising like a tsunami of #Antisemitism and will compel us to return to ourselves.
2.000 years ago the Temple, the connection between us, collapsed. Since then, the nation has been exiled from the spiritual state, egoism is between us, and we are therefore among the nations. We have been successful in egoism since we once existed outside of it too.
We do not correct the breaking! #Antisemitism is a result of our neglect of the opportunity to attain correction. The exile ended only in potential, but not in reality. Sanctity lies in unity, which we can attain. Without uniting, we are in destruction…
In reality the destruction is the correction! It’s impossible to ruin something that was never corrected, that can be ruined. This was a breaking of the boundary between the receiving and bestowing desires, the qualities of the Creator and creation. Therefore the breaking was necessary for correction.
The 1st Temple is unification for the Creator’s sake on the degree of Hochma, in every person’s fight against himself to avoid falling into egoism. But a breach of the connection occurred—exile from connection.
After the exile, the nation builds a new connection among its members —the 2nd Temple, but already on the degree of Neshama. The connection breaks by 1 CE.
The destruction of the 2nd Temple was the final exit from spirituality—everyone exited into the intention “for my own sake.” Since then, the entire nation, besides special people—Kabbalists, entered the process of constant egoistic decline of generations. Ascent became possible after the Ari’s revelation (16th century).
The generations after the Temple’s destruction cannot be compared to us. They felt greater connection with each other, sanctity still radiated for them. They left us the Mishnah, Talmud, etc. The descent did not happen in an instant, the light vacated the common soul gradually. Darkness set in during the times of the Ari.
Correction from below began in the times of the Baal Shem Tov. BESHT performed great work, reviving spirituality, and was followed by his students, Baal HaSulam, and the last great Kabbalist, already living in our time, the Rabash, who left to us the entire method of correction, which we use today.
What Did the Moon Landing Do to Human Psychology?
The group should envision itself as the Temple in which the Creator dwells. And if the Creator isn’t felt, it means the Temple, the connection between friends, is destroyed, because evil thoughts came in-between them. This is exile from Israel, Isra-El, aspiration to the Creator.
Unity is resurrection.
We must rise from the “Destruction of the Temple” to awareness of the loss of the national bond and the need to restore it. Otherwise the holocaust will repeat until we recognize the need to correct the evil between us, so that instead of evil and darkness—we reveal the Creator
The Creatures can feel only in the contrast of light and darkness. Hence creating darkness was a necessary condition for the creatures’ existence. It concluded with descent from the level of connection (destruction of the Temple), and in the 16th century (the times of the Ari) the period of egoism’s correction began (BESHT), whether unwillingly or consciously.
By creating His opposite, egoism, the Creator created the condition and possibility for the creatures’ existence and His revelation. Precisely our weakness in attaining the Creator’s quality of bestowal is the reason and opportunity to attain Him. From Twitter, 7/22/19
Since the times of the Ari, the time of correction has come and the method of correction, Kabbalah, was revealed. Hence if we reject it even today, not recognizing the need to unite, this is the true destruction in us. The real holocaust is not the one that happened in the past, but the one that is happening!
The 9th of Av is revelation of egoism in each of us. Now the time has come to correct it. This is exactly why the breaking happened. By correcting the breaking between us, we attain revelation of the quality of bestowal and unite with the Creator. We must mourn our failures to unite.
We must mourn not over the destruction of the Temple 2,000 years ago, but over the Temple we have not built in our hearts. This is mourning and a holocaust every day! We carry out its destruction today too, as written, “Each day that the Temple is not resurrected is as if it is destroyed anew.”
The 17th of Tamuz is the breaking of the tablets, the 9th of Av is the destruction of the 1st and 2nd Temples, exile of the nation, and birth of the Messiah. All of this is preparation for the 3rd Temple—complete redemption from egoism, unification and revelation of the Creator’s upper light.
Mourning the destruction of the Temple means mourning the lack of yearning for unity, which is called sanctity. It is because requests for oneself elicit separation from the Creator. And only requests for everyone’s unity elevate the world, Israel, as well as the one who asks.
(Rabash, “Destruction of Sanctity”)
“The Temple served all the nations of the world. Otherwise it would not have stood even for one hour. And although the nations are against Israel, the Temple, the world’s perfection for all the nations, was destroyed not at the hands of the nations of the world, but precisely by reciprocal hatred among the nation of Israel.”
(Maaral Mi Prag. Hidushei Igrot. “Gitin” 55:2)
We mustn’t fear that the states we undergo are harmful—on the contrary, these are phases of the soul’s healing. We feel improvement, rehabilitation, sensations become more intense, our eyes “open,” and our strength is magnified—the descent, the soul’s illness passes.
Baal HaSulam: If something seems bad or harmful to us, this testifies to that element still going through a transition phase, in the process of its development and its awareness by us. Hence we have no right to decide that it is bad and to neglect it.
The Creator isn’t hiding in the system—on the contrary, He planted His reason inside it, the sensation of Him inside every part. By putting this puzzle together, we not only get the corrected picture and begin living in that wonderful world, we also attain the general law of the system, love and unity! From Twitter, 7/21/19
The authorities strive to preserve the system, since there is no other system of government.
The elite has gone by the wayside, leaving government, execution and responsibility for society to feeble ministers and officials.
The solution lies is dismantling the liberal monopoly over power, but the elites won’t allow it. It’s a dead end.
“Perhaps I am afraid of revealing how opposite I am to the will to bestow. I subconsciously protect myself, not allowing myself to come closer to the Creator. I must ask the friends for strength, to help me incorporate into the group by an effort above my nature so they will pull me out of prison…
If hatred isn’t revealed, it means we have not merited to advance. However, we strive to awaken not hatred, but increasingly greater aspiration to unity—and hence we feel that the Creator Himself elicits rejection between us and Him…so we will ask!
The Creator incites strife between the friends. And we must unite above the problem, which the Creator has revealed, and thank Him for this revelation of egoism and for the correction. Hatred comes first and it is revealed to the extent of our readiness to ask for correction.
It is a sign of progress.
We mustn’t debate over who is right and who is to blame: there is hatred (from the Creator) and it must be covered with love (a plea to the Creator). Then, instead of treading in one spot, we will advance spiritually. Especially if the whole ten asks for help from above, then all of the (Creator’s) sins are covered by (the Creator’s) love.
“Love will cover all sins.” Without sins there is no love. Love or spiritual connection starts with revealing sins. Every day one must hate the friend—and every day, cover that hatred with love, because “There is none else besides the Creator.” He is the reason for the sins! From Twitter, 7/18/19
