When human beings discover the true essence of
Creator and behaves according to the nature of the grantor or giver, that approach is so intense that he realizes that does not need the religion, it remains only as part of their cultural and social environment in this world.
Torah, Deuteronomy 12:5: But only to the place which the Lord your God shall choose from all your tribes, to set His Name there; you shall inquire after His dwelling and come there.
The common soul is divided into twelve tribes because it consists of the four-letter name of the Creator “Yod-Hey-Vav-Hey” (called HaVaYaH), and each of these letters includes three lines: right, left, and middle.
Four times three equals twelve parts, i.e., twelve tribes, twelve different types of work to correct the desires that must connect together into one single whole.
The place where the twelve tribes work shall be called the Third Temple – the abode of the Creator. After all, the Creator is where the above-egoistic desires, expectations, and aspirations of the entire humanity connect, as it is written, “My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples” (Isaiah 56:7).
This was not said about the first two Temples, because they were preliminary ones and had to be destroyed and rebuilt in the form of the Third Temple that will be built in our hearts.
So far we are just beginning to spread this idea throughout the world. But the impulse has been given. We have already started to move in this direction.
When I was young and next to my teacher, it seemed to me that this was about to happen, and now I understand that it is necessary to go and work. After all, the Kabbalists worked on this all these thousands of years and did not panic, did not become depressed, and did not despair.
They knew that they had to put their little stone into the general picture: to attract more and more people, to talk to, show, and at least somehow shape them, to direct them to the vision of the future common state where we can reveal the single Creator in our common heart.
We live in a wonderful time when we make a transition from the absolute concealment of the upper world into its attainment! We begin to talk about this world, develop the method of discovering it, and disseminate it everywhere to both ourselves and the nations of the world.
Of course, this requires time. I hope that my students will have their students, who will continue this work—I am absolutely certain of it. However, when it manifests, it depends on our persistence.  From KabTV’s “Secrets of the Eternal Book” 6/30/16
New Life #404 – Our Approach To Life: On The Way To A New Morality Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel
What is morality and how does it change from one generation to another? How do we determine what is good on the human level and what the new morality is of the new era?
Every generation, every culture, every individual define what is moral and what is not differently.
Animals examine what is good or bad only physically; human beings also examine things on the human level.
A human being also has a self, the ego. The two dimensions, the physical and the human, confuse us.
Morality has been part of our lives since ancient times sometimes through the power of religion.
The crisis is meant to lead us to the examination of what is really good and what is bad, to the end of our egoistic evolution.
A new morality: no one cares only about his own well being, everyone cares about the wellbeing of others; it is a new life. From KabTV’s “New Life #404 – Our Approach to Life: On The Way To A New Morality,” 6/15/14
But only if they choose to reexamine their attitudes towards their own Jewish identity.
The election of Donald Trump for president has exacerbated the split in American society, but even more so, the inner contradictions of its Jewish citizens. Of the over 70% who voted for Clinton, most feel angry and downright frightened of their upcoming president and the wave of anti-Semitism they are experiencing. Other Jews who voted for Trump for his pro-Israel agenda, argue that the supposed rise in anti-Semitism since the elections is merely putting the focus on something that was evidently widespread before, albeit in different form, as in the case of American campuses which are awash with neo-liberal, politically correct thinking. They understand that anti-Semitism exists both in the hard right and the hard left, and so do not believe either choice would have secured their safety. And then there are the Jews who are themselves split in half between their American liberal upbringing and values, and their inclination to do what is best for the state of Israel. These differences can be easily solved, if we step back and see what is truly at stake.
An American Jewry in Decline
Jews who are protesting Trump may claim that their resistance to this change is actually an upholding of their Jewish values; however, what we must see is that American Jewry was about to disappear thanks to the period of affluence, acceptance, and equality that had brought about assimilation, intermarriage, and low birthrates. Surveys show a very grim portrait of the health of the American Jewish population, as Jack Wertheim, Professor of American Jewish History, puts it, with rapid assimilation sweeping through every branch of Judaism except the Orthodox. Its ties to Israel were also fraying. It is the recent elections that brought the entire liberal system to a halt, in the aim of turning back its destructive route in terms of the economy and utter instability the world had come to, but also shocked the basis of the Jewish community which was happily losing its identity in return for its success. For Jews, the election brought out the ancient conflict between being successful individuals and a people that remain faithful to their roots.
Throughout history Jews have been going through the same pattern, assimilating in part into a foreign culture, be it Greek culture in the days of the Maccabees, that of Spain before the Spanish expulsion, or 1900s Germany before the rise of Hitler. In these and many other cases, our people realized in terrible ways that becoming part of the herd was always rewarded with a great surge of anti-Semitism that would force them back into their Jewish identities and their own culture.
For centuries Kabbalists have known the reason for this terrible backlash. They understood that Jews, divided as they may seem, actually hold within them an ancient promise to pave the way for unity and peace for all of humanity.
American Jews who are struggling with the election results are now facing this same historical conflict between fighting for their place in a foreign culture and seeking new answers within their own heritage that could truly transform reality. I urge them not to wait for anti-Semites to label them as Jews, but rather know that they are the ones who hold their future in their own hands, as well as the future of America and the world at large. It’s not about Trump or Bannon, or any of the repercussions we are seeing as a result of this election. The key to calm, peace, and to the values they wish to uphold is within our Jewish identities and connection to the state of Israel. For within our people is an ancient wisdom and capacity to become the example of the relationships we all want to see in modern societies.
The Outcry of Our Sages
In the early 1900s, Rabbi Kook and Rabbi Yehuda Ashlag (Baal HaSulam) tried in vain to warn the leaders of the great Jewish communities of Eastern Europe of the terrible outcomes of their exile, both physical and spiritual. My teacher, son of Rabbi Yehuda Ashlag, Rabbi Baruch Ashlag, told me of the times he had visited Israeli Prime Minister David Ben Gurion together with his father. He witnessed his father’s attempts to convince the prime minister of the necessity to unite the different factions of the Israeli society, which was divided even then and of the importance of achieving the correct relations with our Arab neighbors. He explained that the method that would allow this to happen exists deep within the Jewish Nation, in the authentic Wisdom of Kabbalah; that it is our only hope of achieving peace amongst ourselves and with the rest of the world, and by that, become a light unto the nations.
Unfortunately, Ben Gurion never accepted these recommendations as guidelines to his path, and we suffer the results to this day. As we now step out of the neo-liberal crisis, we find ourselves in a world that is searching for a cure for its deep divisions and strife. This dire need humanity has come to is of no coincidence; neither is it a coincidence that Israel and Jews have always been put at the center of all misfortunes in the world. The reason is that Jews have the power to heal and prevent these crises by modeling and transmitting the inclination to be “as one man with one heart” and to “love your neighbor as thyself” to the rest of humanity by their own example. But they must first discover this truth about themselves. Kabbalists have tried to explain again and again that it is the lack of this understanding that keeps the nations of the world demanding of Jews to change their ways, as it is written, “No calamity comes to the world but for Israel (Yevamot 63). This is the reason for the seemingly unfounded hatred, which ironically, is forever keeping Jews from running away from their unrecognized role.
Standing at the Crossroads
The Jewish people have never been able to escape their historical mission. Paradoxically, it was the enemies of Jews that kept Judaism alive. But it doesn’t have to be that way forever. This election brings the possibility for change from a path that may have seemed comfortable for the time being, but was effectively bringing American Jews to extinction and the world to utter chaos. At this critical crossroads, we must choose to break the ancient pattern that makes sense to a western liberal rationale, but is actually illusionary and detrimental to the Jewish soul. By opposing Trump, Jews are not opposing racism or hatred, they are merely trying to go back to a system which allowed them the liberties to escape their destiny. They must choose to reconnect to Israel and to the true destiny that it holds as a light unto the nations. This is the only way they will ensure that Trump’s presidency steers away from the far right and unto the middle path, becoming an historical opportunity for reshaping the failing relationships and attitudes of the past, bringing about security, well-being and prosperity for all.

Question: The same primitive savage always exists within us that overpowers us when our emotions operate. Will this part always remain in a person?
Answer:No, not always. If you continue to engage in the wisdom of Kabbalah, you will feel that there are two opposing forces in you and that you are between them with freedom of choice in what is called the middle line.
Question:Is the conflict between cultures and civilizations determined from above by the Creator, or is this the result of egoistic human desires?
Answer: It is the same thing. The conflict is created through egoism which the Creator manages. Nothing happens on its own in nature. We are within a system called nature that manages everything.
Question: Is it possible to say that a flock of birds feel the Creator when they act collectively?
Answer: No, the birds don’t feel the Creator. They feel the general managing force instinctively and obey it. That is how a large flock of birds turns simultaneously to this side or the other, none of them hindering another. A similar thing is also possible to see with fish. We cannot imagine that people will instinctively begin to cooperate mutually like this.
Question: Can we reduce the 230 years that we have left until the completion of correction (Gmar Tikkun) and by how much?
Answer:Yes, we can. There are no limits to this. If all of us were now to gather into one single whole with a single intention, then, with this, we would finish our present earthly existence and would feel that we are together in the state of the collective soul in an eternal and perfect world.
Question: The present generation has forgotten what Fascism and Nazism are. Two generations ago, people gave up their lives because of them. So, why do you say that suffering passes from generation to generation? What do people remember?
Answer:The generation in which terrible events occurred, such as the Second World War, had no freedom of choice. You have freedom of choice, so you can understand, recognize, and reach a feeling of good and evil. In contrast to this, for that generation, there was no choice. They just felt the immense evil of the tremendous and terrible blows they experienced. But specifically following this terrible suffering, we were brought to freedom of choice. So, today, we can make our free choice more consciously and accurately.  From the Kabbalah Lesson in Russian 7/10/16
Question:Is there a question you would like to answer before we ask?
Answer: No. I want to answer only those questions that you ask.
Question:How is the ego divided among seven billion people?
Answer: The ego is divided into five levels of egoistic desire: zero, 1, 2, 3, and 4. All of humanity exists within this and advances toward the goal of creation by gradually reaching the recognition that the ego is evil.
Question:If multitudes of people would begin to long for development and self-awareness, would the crisis end?
Answer:Certainly, in fact, there is no crisis; it is just an illustration of our situation.
Question:How is the work of the Kabbalists projected onto the external world?
Answer:If a Kabbalist succeeds in attracting people to think and ponder their fate, freedom of choice, and ascension to the next level, this is reflected well in all of humanity. They would all experience less pressure and get more possibilities for thinking and making the right decisions.
Question:How many people must reach unity between them to prevent a third world war? What quality must be in these souls?
Answer:There must be 600,000 souls like this and their quality must be such that they long for full mutual connection between each other, as is described in the wisdom of Kabbalah, like a flock of birds or a school of fish.
Question:In the future, will an altruistic global government be established instead of organizations like the United Nations, which has become only a window display?
Question:Can it be said that all the millions of people in the world who have achieved familiarity with the wisdom of Kabbalah are the first signs of the Last Generation?
Answer:Without a doubt. These people are also called the “new generation”; the “Last” generation on this level and the “New” generation on the next level.
Question:In any case, the physical world in which we are living will end. Can we expect that there will be something good next?
Answer:In due course we can expect the next level of development. We were once on the level of the still, after that on the level of the vegetative, then on the level of the animate, and now we are on the human level; the next level will be a spiritual level. That is how we move forward. On the spiritual level, many levels and sub-levels also exist, all the way up to the world of infinity.  From the Kabbalah Lesson in Russian 7/10/16
Question: Must there be a mediator between a person and the Creator?
Answer: Of course, this is a group facilitator in which a person discovers the force that corrects him, the Creator.
The teacher is more of guide than a mediator; the student cannot be closed only on the teacher because he would lose his incentive to develop. He should passively cling to the teacher. This is first.
Secondly, the student always receives the Upper Light through the teacher; it is an absolutely precise hierarchal process from the upper to the lower. The upper turns upward with the request of the lower, receives the portion of Light, and passes the lower his portion. This is a fixed structure from Adam to the present day. This hierarchy is essential and so my students will also advance through me because I preceded you.
Those who come after you and will be your students will receive the Light through you. All this is explained in part fifteen of Talmud Eser Sefirot. The upper always rises to the top, receives a double portion due to the lower, and then transmits it to him. So the hierarchy is required.
But the most importantly, you should understand is that the implementation is not in your connection to the teacher. You should fully trust the teacher and follow his advice, but the fulfillment is in the group.  From the Kabbalah Lesson in Russian 6/9/16
In the sea of words that have been written about Brexit, questions pop up like: What will the other countries in the Union do, and how will Britain abandoning the Union influence the world? One must read the global map of the system of nature correctly to get out of the tangle of European relationships towards a new life.
In 1992, a few months before the establishment of the European Union, I took a comprehensive tour of France. The entire length and width of the French republic was deployed then with diverse propaganda accompanied by explanatory material that called for the citizens to support the innovative project of the joint economic and market security. Even then I had a clear sense that the business was hopeless and that eventually the process might lead to the collapse of the continent.
Over the years, I have invested considerable effort in meetings with representatives of the European market, I wrote about it and tried to explain how vital the union was for the integrity of Europe and what the method is to achieve it.
I am not an economist or researcher of international relations, but from the study and constant occupation with bio-cybernetics and the science of connection, which teach the inner connection of natural systems and human society, one thing was clear to me: any attempt to connect that does not take into account the fact that the natural system operates according to global and integral laws is doomed to failure. Like the UK, as well as other nations that connected in the artificial European “Union,” it is advisable for their own good to abandon the sinking ship as quickly as possible. Association based on economic interests alone, led by banks, financial institutions, and industries, and whose whole idea is economic profit through the removal of borders and the imposition of immigration policy—has no chance of succeeding.
Moreover, the resounding failure may trigger a domino effect that will lead to the rise of the leaders of the extreme right to power in various nations in Europe. The isolationist policy could become radical and deteriorate to the point of bloodshed.
How do we neutralize the European ticking bomb?
With the results of the dramatic national referendum in the UK, “Google” unveiled interesting data about Web search results—the two most frequently asked questions were: What is the European Union and what is the significance of its departure?
Real and true union will exist only when the European continent will be connected as one network—one society, one country, one people, not twenty-eight separate nations that are indirectly subject to Germany, which rules with an iron fist at the EU Council in Brussels, but an equal balance of powers between all the nations, strong and weak. “Do not be surprised if I mix together the well-being of a particular collective with the well-being of the whole world, because indeed, we have already come to such a degree that the whole world is considered one collective and one society.” (The Writings of Baal HaSulam).
Mutual concessions, a human approach, and doing for the sake of others are the foundations for every standard system of relationships—like in a family—and they are also the ingredient that nourishes and maintains the connection over time. Mutual responsibility “as one person with one heart” is the goal to which the Europeans must aspire. Only on top of this first stratum is it possible to build the economic, security, political, cultural, and further strata. The European nations are like a couple on the threshold of divorce and living in conflict under one roof and without a choice, without connection and love.
Evolution of Union
Kabbalah is the wisdom of connection. According to it, the system of nature is a complete system, and is linked instinctively as a single organism all levels of existence: still, vegetative, and animate., “And the wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid.” When humans interfere with this wholeness, they violate this balance, harm it and inevitably destroy nature.
The laws of balance in the system of nature determine that the egoism implanted in us from birth, “for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth,” will continue to divide and separate between us. As long all of us act each for himself, behaving with indifference and cruelty toward each other, we will get a negative chain reaction from nature. We must cling to the force of unity in nature, the force that stabilizes reality. When we adjust the relationships between us to its laws and act with consideration of others, we merit to goodness and abundance.
The very effort to maintain the right connection between people above all the disputes and differences awakens the force of connection between us—the same positive force that is in the depths of the system of nature, and through it, we can balance our relationships and establish peace, as is written, “love covereth all transgressions.” When the organs of the EU– from southern Spain to northern Norway and from eastern Russia to western Ireland—will knit together into a single, living, sustaining, and pulsating body, it will be possible to build a proper society in Europe upon whose basis it will be possible to develop additional systems of connection.
A School for Unity
To avoid additional shocks in the near future, such as severe economic losses, huge waves of immigration, the growth of radical Islam, the rise of Fascism and racism or, God forbid, civil war, the EU need to do a kind of soul-searching and critical clarification: What is union? Why do we need it? How do we reach the right union between us? What is liable to happen if we don’t walk in the right direction?
It is in the hands of the institutions of the European Economic Community. Were the members of the administration in Brussels to promote an educational process for changing consciousness and softening hearts, an emotional revolution could happen within months to a number of years. All of the means for building this connection already exist and the developmental pace is in their hands. Just as brilliant propaganda led to the growth of the EU, clever, consistent, and continuous marketing of the wisdom of connection would make its continued existence possible.
Governmental programs applied in bringing people together, academic courses, and options for the study of human nature, as well as extensive exposure in the mass media that the same force of connection is inherent in us—can reveal to the Europeans an additional and hidden layer of relationships between them that will make it possible to use the infrastructure for countless healthy engagements in all areas of life, let alone to save the European ship that is sinking into the depths.

Question: Islam is the youngest religion, ranked second or perhaps now even first, after Christianity for its number of followers. What makes this religion popular?
Answer: Kabbalah explicitly points out that at the end of days of the world, before it starts to approach its correct completion, global integration, there will be a period when Islam becomes the strongest religion or the strongest world movement.
It was written about this in Kabbalah thousands of years ago! Ideological wars will be fought continuously, with military actions accompanying them. After all, a sword is depicted on the Islamic flag for a reason.
Question: Where does the popularity of the religion of Islam come from?
Answer: Its popularity is due to the fact that Islam unites all its supporters and conforms to the masses. This religion has a set of all possible variations in order to join any environment or movement. Therefore, Islam is very broad.
One can say that Christianity is also very fragmented. Indeed, but it is an older religion. Gone are the days of the Crusades, the religious wars that raged once in France, Germany, and England, between Austria and Spain, and so on. Everything was over very quickly because science was developing in those places affected by the Inquisition, in parallel to it and while fighting with it.
It is different with Arabic mentality. Islam primarily is a religion of the poor, unpretentious inhabitants of the deserts and regions such as Oceania, Indonesia, and Africa. It addresses the simple, unassuming, very narrow-minded people. It can tell them a lot with this respect. After all, what do they need to observe? Namaz and practically nothing else.
On the other hand, they receive worldwide support. Today no religion and no movement has the power to resist this because they are decrepit. Precisely on this background the modern Islam appears.
We must understand that this is not the Islam that for centuries was in a state of slumber in the Arabian, North African, and Asian deserts, right up to Afghanistan and beyond. This is a different type of Islam.
The real Islam is Sufism that speaks about unity and equality and is a reflection of Judaism.
However, today Sufism is completely crushed and is not popular. Sufis were forced to leave Arab countries and move to other places. I met with some in America, the Netherlands, and England. Unfortunately, the Arabic Kabbalah called “Sufism” disappears. On the surface rises the aggressive spirit of conquest, supported by a special ideology that wants the world to accept Islam by any means.
Question: Does it have to be this way from Kabbalah’s point of view?
Answer: No. The wisdom of Kabbalah describes the historical path of all nations and religions. In the wisdom of Kabbalah, it is written that even Judaism denied and rejected the wisdom of Kabbalah and became a religion that froze its adherents, Christianity will gradually fade, while Islam, which was dormant for many years from the 6th century AD until today, must specifically “flare up” today, and after a certain amount of time will fade like the rest of the religions.
After all, none of them is involved with discovering the upper world, so developing humanity cannot get any satisfaction through them. We are already coming to this.
In the future we will see that all of the religions will disappear and instead of them humanity must discover the true state of the universe, meaning its relationship and connection with the upper force in the form of absolute attainment.  From KabTV’s “News with Michael Laitman” 9/26/16
