The #UN’s International Labour Organization warned that roughly half of the world’s workers, and that’s over 1.5 billion people, may end up destitute due to the #coronavirus pandemic. Nature will force us to restructure society to become one, integral.
Whether with suffering or self-awareness.

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

#Coronavirus is a consequence of us not being corrected which is already manifested on the biological level. Many problems are befalling mankind in order to convince it to leave the #ego—“Egypt.” We will either leave forcibly or in joy, as we left 49 impure (egoistic) levels.

We need a global plan for recovering human society from #egoism. We cannot close down businesses without support. For the first time in history humanity realizes that it is global, and that it needs to care about the general wellbeing. Common quarantine—common home! #COVID19

#Coronavirus changes the world, most importantly, human #consciousness. We will refer to events as “before and after Coronavirus.” Followed by relating to it as “before and after” as in “before connection with the Creator, and after our change to become similar to Him.” But, perhaps, this is for the next virus.

When one annuls himself before the Creator with the intention of giving everything to Him, annulling his self, only the Creator remains in the world. One receives only for the sake of bestowing to the Creator. i.e., he receives the whole world only to bestow to the Creator. This is the meaning of: “The whole world is created for me, and I—to bestow to the Creator.”

After Tzimtzum Aleph, the upper light shines only in the presence of a Kli—the reflecting screen. The screen is a Kli, the force of faith above knowledge. The light (knowledge) weakens the Kli (faith) and the light disappears. In order for the light not to disappear we must increase faith, the screen for knowledge.

In line with the program of creation to bring humanity to the quality of bestowal, connection, and love, we awaken the following: after #coronavirus comes heat, fires, flood, crop failure, an invasion of locusts, resulting in: illness, hunger, death…
Should we not take the need for our correction seriously?

We exist in a system of integral nature. Thus, all problems, including viruses, stem from the imbalance of this system. It makes no sense to fix the system with “props.” We must correct the source of the emergence of problems—our egoism. Humanity will soon be convinced of this!

Accepting the opinion of the upper by agreeing with it, I rise to His level. And I see how my “envelope” gets filled up with the full amount, not with money, but with the greatness of the Creator.

Faith above knowledge is the method of ascension from the material degree to the spiritual one, from the lower spiritual degree to the higher one. Faith above knowledge is the only way to exercise the freedom of choice one is given in this world.

The mind of the upper is the opinion of a group or a teacher. If I try to rise to faith above knowledge each time, it means that I ascend the spiritual degrees. If I do not make efforts to accept the reasoning of the Creator, then I won’t enter the spiritual world or even get close to it.

Knowledge is my mind in this world and the sense of what is happening here, like a judge relying on what his eyes see. Faith is above knowledge as Bina is above Malchut; in order to rise from the level of Malchut to the level of Bina, I go by faith above knowledge.

Faith above knowledge—when I accept the opinion of the upper even if it diverges from my knowledge. “They have eyes but they do not see, they have ears but they do not hear.” I can raise myself to the Creator, each time as if pulling myself up to the next degree, accepting His opinion.

#Coronavirus closes the history of the egoistic development of mankind and shows that any system, clothed in our #egoism, will produce a negative result. For these systems are intended to show us the only way of correcting—not the system—but our egoistic nature.

If we infuse the group (the ten) with the upper light, it expands to encompass the whole of humanity. Each friend contains a billion people in him. It follows that inside a ten there is an entire reality, the whole of humanity, all the worlds.

Does the work in the group affect the whole of humanity? Since there is no difference between a small group (a ten) and the whole humanity, when we awaken the upper force with our actions in the group, we affect the whole world through it. The uniqueness of the integral system is that a ten contains all parts of the world in it.

The difference between one who aspires to spirituality and one who aspires to corporeality is that the former annuls the EGO, reward from this life, whereas the latter wishes to taste both worlds, as The Zohar says: GAV of this world and GAV of the world to come. This is obvious by the way they treat others.

Having received $1,000 from a friend, one believes him, which is “faith below knowledge.” Since knowledge doesn’t contradict his faith, knowledge is more important than faith, faith doesn’t contradict knowledge. It follows that faith is below knowledge, and knowledge is more important than faith since one realizes that if faith contradicted knowledge, he would not believe it.

Individually each one is helpless in the face of one’s egoism—unable to do anything against it. But if we look at others, we get the forces to act—physically and morally. We just need the realization of the necessity, a common solution and example, like in a ten.

In the face of the #coronavirus we are all equally vulnerable. We all had to stay home, undergo the new state the same way. But once we got used to this same feeling, now, upon coming out of the quarantine, we’ll discover how different we are: rich and poor.

When leaving the quarantine, think: what would you like to take along with you into the wide-open world? How would you like to feel the world that you enter when leaving the quarantine? Maybe other people feel the same way, and you are able to change the external world?
If we don’t change the world now, will the virus revisit us? … What do we change?

The force of unity operates above all countries and boundaries. We will feel the world as transparent, having no boundaries between homes and parts of the universe. Everything will be felt as one whole, each one is connected to everyone and everyone are inside of him. We will feel the entire reality, and the Creator inside of it.

The Creator is the force of bestowal and love, and not any corporeal image. This force of love must dwell inside of us, between us. This is precisely what is called revelation, redemption, exodus from Egypt, the authentic end of correction.

The #virus is showing us how unfree we are, immersed in the ego. It is showing us our slave-like dependence on the will to enjoy, Pharaoh. We are resigned to carry out all the demands of our ego and are not aware of this. Egoism rules over our desires and thoughts, this is exactly what slavery refers to.

Exodus from Egypt is exit from ego into love between us. We want to come out of unfounded hatred and turn to face each other, with an open heart. This is revealed as general love, the exit from Egypt into the land of Israel, into a desire aimed “straight at the Creator,”to the higher force of love.

Tackling the issue of #antisemitism means scrutinizing yourself, correcting yourself. Correcting in the way of infusing the world with goodness and unity for all nations.

When the people of #Israel rise above discourse and strive toward unity, it has a positive effect on the world and reduces its animosity. An example of good connection changes the process of advancement from negative to positive. This is the solution to the problem.

The Creator is the force of bestowal and love, and not a corporeal image. It must dwell among us. This is called redemption (from the ego), exodus from Egypt. The force of unity operates above all boundaries. We will feel the world as transparent, as one whole where each one is united with everyone and the Creator is inside!

As soon as we stop being aggressive toward nature and step back, nature quickly makes up for the drastic human intervention.

Amalek, true egoism, arises upon exiting Egypt, in the domain of the Creator. In Egypt, Pharaoh rules. In the Creator’s domain an opposite force, Amalek, is revealed. The only way to oppose Amalek is to work in the ten and raise a prayer to the Creator.

Amalek reminds us of himself (AMALEK – Al Minat LEKabel, neglect of the Creator, bestowal) or not—we must work on it constantly—look for where and how to add the importance of the Creator within us. He is the only reason we grow. It turns out that Amalek is help from the opposite. A disturbance is a sign that one needs to scrutinize and elevate oneself, a means from the Creator to rise toward Him.

Amalek is fighting against the importance of the Creator in us. Therefore, with his work on us he induces the need for the importance of the Creator. Amalek, our EGO, is showing me where to add the importance of the Creator in me.

The goal of the coronavirus is to change human nature. Man is the only element in nature that causes it harm. He has freewill, which is why he must take his correct self-governance into his hands. Until he does this, the virus will not disappear.

1. I am unable to understand the upper one who thinks on a different level, thus I don’t agree with Him. No matter how much I go over my conclusions and the conclusions of the upper one, I get only more convinced that His opinion is unacceptable to me, seems unreasonable to me, far from reality.

2. But after the scrutiny that I cannot agree with or justify the Creator, I stop myself saying: “Now I’m going to accept the opinion of the Creator above reason despite it being opposite to mine.” Precisely because it’s opposite to my reasoning I accept it as faith above reason.

3. I rejoice at the opportunity to do so. And if I cannot accept this, then I ask the Creator to give me strength to do so, for I go by faith above knowledge, accepting the opinion of the Creator. I understand that my knowledge remains below and above it is the knowledge of the Creator, one above the other.

4. I don’t replace my prior knowledge, understanding, and perception with the knowledge, understanding, or perception of the Creator, as the kids in our world do accepting an adult’s opinion. In spirituality I remain with my opinion besides which I also receive the opinion of the Creator and work according to it.

5. This is the form I remain in in spirituality. My verified opinion that I retain is called my knowledge. The opinion of the Creator that I have accepted becomes my faith. It is above my reason since I accept it as the truth even though my mind finds it to be unrealistic.

What must we do for the #virus to disappear? Nature is an integral system where all the parts are connected, one supporting the other. In this system, humanity must become a part that supports, connects, balances, and facilitates greater integration of all of nature’s elements.

Because we have tremendous power, we must treat nature very carefully, as the perfect integral system that it is. If we begin to do this consciously, our lives will be happy. And if we don’t, new viruses will come until they erase us off the face of the Earth…
This is the time and place to make the right choice.

The #coronavirus pandemic is a radical shift of the entire earthly civilization, the onset of replacing humanity’s egoistic structure with a world of integral interaction between all inhabitants of the planet.
We will now bear witness to the gradual collapse of international trade and business systems.

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

Today we’re entering the concluding phase of humanity’s program of development, called the “Last Generation.” The world is becoming similar to the Creator. For the first time, humans aren’t warring against other humans, but nature itself is attacking humans. It’s no longer a struggle of the egos, but of the Creator against man.

We’re not going to go back to the old world. We’re going to arrive at a new world and become new people. This will happen in stages, but the process has already begun. Nature has its own program that is presently being implemented, and we sense the extent to which we conform to it.

Matzah is called the bread of affliction, because we bake it while in poverty, lack of strength, sensations in the heart and understanding in the mind. Yet, with the help of this new form, we can cross the border between the Pharaoh’s and the Creator’s domains, escaping our egoistic desire to receive to freedom.

When we attain unity in the group, I feel that I am willing to neglect everything for the sake of connection with the friends, since with it I can connect to the Creator. I thus come out of Pharaoh’s authority and go under the Creator’s authority, seeing the ten as a means that pulls me out of egoistic slavery.

Humanity’s problem now lies in realizing that the only right exit out of the crisis lies in correcting human relationships, from egoistic to altruistic. Returning to business relations without correcting human relations will lead to a huge crisis!

The world’s healing depends only on people’s relationships. Nature will strike the whole of humanity since it has become a global organism. It will strike until humanity realizes that it has to become interconnected by good forces—to fill the spaces between people with them…

We must reveal how different we are; this is what the #coronavirus is showing us. It is related to our desire or inner quality. I cannot come near another person since I do not want to be close to him. Hence I physically cannot come close to him! Our world is taking on the form of the spiritual world.

When the spaces between us start to “disappear,” the world will connect precisely through the empty spaces between us. All parts of reality will connect and form a new, corrected system of Adam, and the Creator will appear inside of it, organizing our connections and filling them with the upper force, with Himself.

What is the coronavirus? The virus is showing that, instead of connection between us, there are empty spaces that must be filled by the proper relationships. By revealing these gaps between us, we discover that we cannot communicate across them since through this corrupted connection, we pass the virus to each other.

Society, in its current form of being, has exhausted itself. The coronavirus is intended to help us change: the purpose of existence, development, and governance. It has helped us to become similar, to feel the need, from a misfortune shared by all, to look for a common solution.
