How grateful do we have to be to our enemies for their desire to vilify us in all earthly sins. If we calculate how much money was invested in all the articles about us, we would never be able to make ourselves this famous. The future generations will figure it out!

My Thoughts On Twitter 8/19/19

Choice is the most important thing in our life. We are making choices non-stop, comparing, consciously or unconsciously, and changing our approach. Our entire life is a choice of the best option as per the new criteria, determined by what is most important right now.

When the importance of spirituality falls in my eyes, it’s as if the staff falls out of my hands and turns into a serpent. But these two states are connected: we cannot rise up without descending down. “The Creator made one against the other.” The staff holds me up high, and the serpent pulls me down. I choose…

If spirituality falls in my eyes, and I elevate it, it means I am walking with the staff. The nature of the staff is such that it constantly falls, and I have to lift it up every time. That’s how I lead the ten, and it holds me. (Aron Noseh Nosav).
The staff falls, I lift it and thus walk towards the goal.

Our work lies in annulling ourselves to zero, so there will be no one besides the Creator. From that zero, we must lower ourselves till negative infinity, so all the work will be done not by us, but by the Creator per our request. Thus from 100% egoism we descend to minus 100%, in which the Creator is revealed.

We have to work with our will to enjoy for the sake of bestowal, meaning, use our egoism to the fullest. By doing our work, we grow our egoism 620-fold and attain a corrected desire that’s 620 times greater than the original one.

The next egoistic degree comes from the light, which I drew for the sake of bestowal, and then fell and wished to have it for myself. This is the staff and the serpent: the importance of bestowal falls, I must raise it higher and higher.
I thus attain a desire that’s 620 times greater by virtue of egoism’s expansion by the light.

We lower our egoism, but it grows even more each time. The light that enters fans our ego on the following degree. As a result of our efforts, light enters us for the sake of bestowal, but we fall and wish to receive for our own sake. That’s how light raises egoism to the light’s degree.

Spiritual movement happens by revealing an empty space—desire and filling it with the quality of bestowal—the Creator. So it has two polar states: sin, egoism, and its filling by bestowal. Revelation of evil is necessary and mandatory at the beginning of every new spiritual state

I am very excited about the decision made by the Petach Tikva municipality, headed by Mayor Rami Greenberg, to name the street where our World Bnei Baruch center is located, in honor of my teacher, Kabbalist Baruch Shalom Ashlag (RABASH).

As of August 16th, we are located at the following address:
12 HaRabash Street, the city of Petach Tikva (translated from Hebrew is “The Gate of Hope”)

The neighbor is one who is opposite to me, similar to how we are opposite to the Creator. Nevertheless, the law of love operates in the system, obliging us to connect—otherwise we won’t be able to exist.
Love is the law of connection of all parts of nature, the created hatred, on all degrees.

We unite with the Creator not from the positive or negative, but from the middle between them—the Creator. Hence we must look for the center of the group, the common connection so that there—and only there, together we will demand the Light that Reforms. It will then do its job and it is also there that we will reveal the Creator.

Love is a special force of a higher order, connecting the positive and negative. It “covers all crimes”—gaps between opposites. It is the 3rd factor connecting them into one. It is the middle line given to us from above. It is the force of the Creator, not belonging to “+” nor “-“.

The day of love (Tu Be-Av)—love for all of creation, as coming from the Creator. This is a connection to the whole universe, humanity. I wish to love everything, to belong to a single system of good forces, so I will support everyone and everyone will support me. This universal love must fill everyone.

It was a pleasure having the @i24NEWS_EN crew here today at our headquarters in Petah Tikva. They interviewed me about the uniqueness of Bnei Baruch, how we teach Kabbalah, and why it’s becoming so popular in our time.

I explained the difference between authentic Kabbalah, and other teachings. We talked about how our organization welcomes individuals of all colors, genders, and nationalities, from all over the world.

Two states on the spiritual path:
Mateh (staff)—when a person manages his egoism, being in control of it and aiming it to move toward the goal. That’s why it is called Mateh—staff.
Nahash (serpent) is when one cannot manage egoism, has no control to lead it in the intention for the sake of the Creator. But the serpent teaches him the path…

#Hungary has the highest level of #Antisemitism in #Europe. 7.5% of carriers of the #Jewish genes live there—the largest share of Jewish genes in the world after Israel, twice the number in the US. It is as if having one Jewish grandparent.
That is why Hungarians are the biggest anti-Semites!

We advance step by step: I rose and fell—”And there was evening and there was morning—one day.” Each and every time, we build a new state by losing everything we received before. If we’d remember and preserve the previous state, we wouldn’t be able to acquire a new one. I have to fall—”Shimon from the market”

The lower one receives everything from the upper one: this world and the upper world, and the means to ascend.
What remains is to discern how to relate properly to the external and internal states, meaning to the group, the world and myself, and then incorporate myself into the group and annul myself.

Self-annulment can be passive or active, at various degrees, in changing conditions. But the experience we must accumulate from all the states we go through is the ability to annul ourselves of our own choice. I must know why I annul myself and before whom, and how, in return I acquire the group, the world.

For now we cannot do anything besides self-annulment, nullifying ourselves more and more. All correction comes down to this: until its very end, until the “coming of the Messiah,” the light “Rav Poalim Umekabtsiel.”
All our actions are to annul ourselves because we are working on egoism’s correction.

By nullifying myself, I adhere to the Creator’s self-annulment and attain Him through His self-annulment. By annulling myself for the sake of connecting to Him, I start to understand how He annuls Himself—and thus I study the upper one. It is also important to annul yourself to the right people, but never to the egoistic world.

Allowing the Creator to be delighted by revealing Himself in the creatures is work that, till the end of correction, proceeds entirely “on the ascent,” from “AHAP De Aliyah,” by adhering to the upper one, annulling to Him through annulling to the group, as written, “From love for the creatures to love for the Creator.”

Passive self-annulment is bestowal for the sake of bestowal, while an active one is already reception for the sake of bestowal. I am in the upper one, I feel Him and understand just how I can delight Him by receiving, by helping Him be revealed in me.

We are in the material (spiritually inanimate) world to have the opportunity to create conditions that are independent of spiritual (internal) states, to help by actions as long as we are unable to help by intentions. Every lesson is participation in building the Kli, even by a physical effort!

Every person that mourns the destruction of the Temple (soul) will merit to see it. We must pray for society’s correction, for creation of intentions to bestow, Rosh, Kabbalists, above desires to receive, Guf, the nation. Desires are in the nation, while intentions to bestow must be developed by Kabbalists.

The soul is the head, Isra-el, intentions to bestow, and the body—desires to receive. The soul’s correction lies in attaining intentions to bestow. Desires do not change. The soul’s breaking is that intentions became “for reception,” in order for us to be able to correct them to “for bestowal” and connect them with desires. That is how the soul is revived.

The soul’s breaking by the Creator till our state was necessary so it could be restored by people. That’s what the Creator revealed to Abraham in advance. It is just preparation to realize the need to perform the correction now. Only it counts as man’s work—the past is preparation from above.

Intention is called the head, and desire is the body. We work on intention so it will direct the desires and we’ll be able to use them correctly. If the congruence between the two disappears, it means destruction of the body, Temple. Creation of the Temple is when the congruence of intention and desire is restored.

We are in a material (spiritually inanimate) world to have the opportunity to organize the surrounding settings, which are independent of our spiritual (internal) states (ascents and descents) to remind each other of the intention, schedule and participation in the common work, unity

All of nature, our behavior and attitudes—everything works according to the egoistic desires of each and everyone. Until the Jews draw the Upper force to correct egoism, the world will not change. Once the nature of the world begins to change, the world will return to that (Light of Hassadim) as at the time of Adam. (Torah)

Humanity has gone through all the stages of its egoistic development. We are about to undergo a period of realizing the need to change our nature, and ascending above individual egoism into a consciousness, aims and efforts that are common to us all—by nature’s coercive pressure and suffering, or by accepting this development.

In the European civilization’s decline, we can see the end of the entire earthly materialistic civilization. The next stage of mankind’s development lies in its ascent into the world of spirit, attainment of integral existence in unity, rather than achievements in each individual’s narrow egoism. But for now, the birth of the new era lies ahead for us …
