Who Can Correctly Assess Kabbalah?

laitman_250Question: Only a person who has crossed the Machsom, the figurative border between the material and spiritual worlds, can understand the essence of Kabbalah. Since today only you managed to do this, then only you understand this essence. What can we do?
Answer: First, not only I have succeeded in crossing the Machsom.
Second, how is it possible to correctly assess Kabbalah, the Creator, the system of the universe, and the forces of governance if you are not in this system?
To cross the Machsom means to enter into the spiritual system and to become at least a minimal component of it so that even through the smallest connection with the system one would understand what it is. Otherwise, a person is in some kind of fantasy.
Therefore, naturally, one who did not cross what is called the Machsom—did not create within himself the system of the upper world according to the method of comparing himself with the rest of the friends—does not understand what Kabbalah is talking about.
We feel this even before crossing the Machsom. You cross, you cross; you do not cross, you don’t. And you are either inside or outside, either one or zero. There is nothing else.

One Must Love One’s Neighbor

627.2Question: The Creator is love. When you first came to your teacher Rabash did you somehow connect Kabbalah with love?
Answer: No. Before I came to Rabash, and even with him at first, Kabbalah, in my view, was identified with a purely dry, rigid science that I needed to master.
Question: What was your reaction when you first heard the fact that one must love one’s neighbor?
Answer: I reacted to it as some kind of addition: “This is probably how it is manifested.” I understood that these words were earthly, very limited, very shallow, and based on non-spiritual, material qualities. I explained spiritual love to myself as an aspiration to something exalted, the opportunity to belong to this ideal.
The principle of “love your neighbor as yourself” should be realized in the ten. We must take it in its real live form and realize it between us. Then we will be able to achieve this. We need to try and do this as quickly as possible, before all sorts of natural suffering make us move to this by a long and painful path.

New Life #919 – The Wisdom Of Truth

New Life #919 – The Wisdom Of Truth
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz
Summary
The wisdom of Kabbalah is called the wisdom of truth because it brings a person to discovery of the Creator, who is called the truth. It teaches groups of people how to transcend the imaginary reality and enter the true reality of the Creator, how to change from thinking of one’s own pleasure to thinking of love and giving. This truth can only be discovered through the falsehood just as the Light can only be discovered over the darkness. It is a method for the correction of each person who ends up wanting to help everyone to discover the same wonderful truth.

The Third Temple

laitman_940Question: How not to quarrel in the Third Temple?
Answer: The Third Temple operates on completely different grounds, according to different criteria. Quarrels are not possible there. When we ascend to the spiritual world, egoism no longer grows; we are only influenced by the correcting force that we add to our egoism. Therefore, there cannot be further shattering.
All this is stated in theory according to the laws of the correlation between the negative force of reception and the positive force of bestowal. By studying the methodology, we understand that we really are moving toward this state, and there will be no other.

When Opportunities Do Not Coincide With Desires

Laitman_079.01Baal HaSulam, The Writings Of The Last Generation: Ultimately, the diligent class will put to death all the elderly and handicapped who eat and do not work, or even if they eat more than they can work, as it is detrimental to society, as it is known that they have no sentiments.
That is absolutely true! When a person lives to a certain age or can no longer bring real benefit, he is treated as if nobody needs him, let alone the sick.
This would be the natural development of capitalism if it continued. But in principle, it is possible that we can come to this. Then we would have a Spartan society: only young, healthy, and robust people would remain, those who could bring benefit to the elite. And if they were not needed either, then they would be destroyed, leaving, say, one billion out of eight billion.
Remark: According to statistics, the number of elderly people per employed person will increase in Europe by 2030. If today there are 1.5 employed people for every retired person, then in 2030 it will be half. Thus, the standard of living will drop from 30% to 50%.
My Comment: Not necessarily. I think that robotics and automation will help us. But the fact is that there will be no one to feed retired people because the desire to feed them will disappear even though there would be the opportunity to do so.
Our opportunities will not coincide with our desires. Therefore, society will slowly prepare them for disposal through the healthcare system.
Remark: It is hard to believe that we could come to this. On the contrary, today the press cries that old people and disabled people do not receive sufficient benefits.
My Comment: The media does it only under orders—which means that some party does it to get votes and win an election.
Question: Doesn’t public opinion support retired people?
Answer: There is no public opinion. There is an opinion of elites who govern public opinion. All the rest is fake news.

New Life #312 – Attitudes And Changing Attitudes

New Life #312 – Attitudes And Changing Attitudes
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe
Summary
Human character is changing from focusing on “what’s in it for me to what’s in it for us.” As we begin to be curious about the purpose of human life, we gradually build new values based on the concept of “love your neighbor as yourself” above the old value of “love only myself.” More and more, we will try to see the good in others and create an environment based on love rather than mutual exploitation.

Malchut Is Waiting

laitman_282.01Torah, Numbers 12:01: Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses regarding the Cushite woman he had married, for he had married a Cushite woman.
Moses’s wife Zipporah is a Cushite, meaning she is dark-skinned. It means that Moses’s Malchut is much darker, harder, and heavier than the desires of Miriam and Aaron. Therefore, when he works with her, he reaches a higher level.
In the same way, we now have to attach ourselves to all of humanity. Can you imagine the Malchut that is waiting to be connected?! At the same time, when this happens all will receive such an elevation!

Integrated In Nature

Laitman_715Question: What can you do if you see that people in this world are completely not connected?
Answer: Unfortunately, this is so. But all of nature—inanimate, vegetative, and animate—is already beginning to close. It is revealed to us as more and more integral. Everything without exception enters into one system.
And nature has always been like this, but now it is approaching man, wanting to include him within nature and cannot. We oppose all of it degrees and are unable to be integrated in it because we are not integrated within ourselves and between us.
It is possible to disagree with this and say, “Is it true that the inanimate, vegetative, and animate nature is integrated? We see how the animals prey on each other.” But for them it is a means of existence. They have no intention of causing harm to each other, only to co-exist correctly.
But we do not see it because we look at them through our egoistic point of view. If we could look at nature correctly, we would understand that they do not destroy each other, but only act in symbiosis.
