Unity Beyond Differences: How Is It Possible? – Talk With Shaul Magid

Shaul Magid, the Distinguished Fellow in Jewish Studies at Dartmouth College, meets Kabbalist Dr. Michael Laitman to discuss anti-Semitism and how Jews can serve as an example of unity to the world.

The Jews are blamed for separating and making themselves different from other nations. However, when they try to dissolve and even accept the cultural traditions of the nations of the world, they still remain different.

According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, this is caused by a special role that the Jewish people have to perform. Jews originated 3,800 ago as a collection of 70 nations of ancient Babylon, gathered by Abraham around the principles “love your neighbor as yourself” and “love covers all transgressions.” Therefore, we cannot count Jewish people as any other nation in a biological sense. Being Jewish means consciously uniting with others in order to create one united entity and let the upper force of love and bestowal enter it.

From this point, the direct task of Jews is to show a practical implementation of Abraham’s method today and induce connection, so in the end, we all reach, as it is written, “My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations” (Isaiah, 56:7).

According to natural development, we are pushed to go to the final goal. Today, we can see it in a global crisis, penetrating all areas of our lives: wars, natural disasters, etc.—we cannot control it, and we don’t know how much more to come.

Kabbalah gives an opportunity to reach the final goal in a positive way. In order to do so, Jews need to reestablish and reveal to humanity the method of building positive human connections above their constantly growing egoistic nature. If they show an example of unity, then beyond all differences, races and religions, it will spread all over the globe, so the upper force of love and bestowal could enter the world and fill it with happiness.

Why Is Jewish Unity Fateful For Humanity? – Talk With Shaul Magid

Shaul Magid, the Distinguished Fellow in Jewish Studies at Dartmouth College, meets Kabbalist Dr. Michael Laitman to discuss anti-Semitism, and how establishing unity between Jews can prevent it.

We live in a shattered reality. Each smallest smart part of society, called human, lives only for a personal benefit, and has no opportunity to really understand or change anything.

The subconscious claim from the nations of the world on the Jews is that their misfortunes and suffering in life is caused by Jews. Kabbalah explains this sensation as a natural phenomenon.

From the time of the Jewish people’s birth under Abraham’s guidance 3,800 years ago, the Jews bear the method of building positive connections above the human ego. This method made them one entity and gave them a name – “Jews” (from “Yihud” – “united”).

Today, we face a global crisis, and since the world becomes more and more interconnected, this crisis will touch each area of human existence. The only way to avoid it is to correct human relations. From this point on, there is a need in Abraham’s method of connection, and the nations of the world already subconsciously demanding from Jews to implement it and share with everyone.

Therefore, the Jewish people must reunite. This is a need. If they do, the entire world will follow their example, if not – the new wave of anti-Semitism will overtake them.

Blitz Of Kabbalah Tips – 10/22/18

laitman_282.02Question: What does it mean to seek a solution on the next level if it is hidden? How can we identify the next level of agreement between us?

Answer: You only need to invest effort in your yearning for the next level, and the upper Light will correct everything.

Question: Is “the common intelligence” that is born in a circle limited somehow?

Answer: It is limited only by our ability to approach each other, not in any other way. When we approach each other seriously, we reach the intelligence of the Creator, which is the maximal characteristic of bestowal and love that becomes clothed in us.

Question: How should one react to a participant in a circle who is inclined to doubt the method of the workshop itself, who talks about the uselessness of the people sitting around him, and considers what they say to be foolishness he doesn’t want to hear?

Answer: The wisdom of Kabbalah says that you must “blunt its (egoism’s) teeth.” If a person objects to the general rules that the Kabbalists ordered us to keep, he should leave us. These general rules have already existed for thousands of years; if he doesn’t want to carry them out, he should leave. On this topic, there is nothing to discuss.

Question: What is the principle you use to choose questions for a workshop?

Answer: I know approximately what the shared general level of development of the world group is, and I give the members of the group a task that is one level higher. It is no more than one level because otherwise the question would not be understood and would put them into a state of depression that would not lead to the desired result. The group members need to make an effort to understand the question through their connection, which could even be the answer.

Question: Is the reason I don’t understand the Kabbalistic texts because I have not been investing sufficient work in the group of ten?

Answer: If you don’t understand Kabbalistic texts, you need to read them again and again, many times, and sometimes even copy them, adapting them within you somehow.

Disagreement With The Opinion Of The Circle

laitman_571.08Question: Is it possible to express your disagreement with the opinion of the circle or should you only say something that does not go against it?

Answer: It depends on how you imagine your connection. It is possible that you could awaken some disagreement and then an interesting polemic and clarification would flare up. The main thing is that what you are doing should serve the purpose of rapprochement.

This can happen in very serious, hard, mutual clarifications. But if in the end we come to a greater rapprochement than at the beginning of the workshop, then this is already useful.
