New Life 1305—The Influence Of The Environment On Interpersonal Relations

New Life 1305 – The Influence Of The Environment On Interpersonal Relations
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel

When we enter a new environment we are not aware of the degree to which it influences, changes, and shapes us. The influence of the environment on us is like the influence of the womb on a baby. The family environment should be protected by softening one’s heart before entering the home and by playing creative games together in order to feel the family connection.

A protective family bubble should be built around it so that a foreign spirit cannot break it apart. A family should speak about what is external to it, what is internal to it, and how to guard it from any harmful or hostile external influences.

New Life 1304 – Group Discussion

New Life 1304 – Group Discussion
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and NitzahMazoz

First and foremost, we all need to agree on our ultimate goal and that it should be important for us, even if we don’t like discussions. We need to ask ourselves what we are willing to concede and sacrifice in order to achieve the most important, common goal. Each one should integrate in the expectations and heart of the others, the warmth, security, and hope.

We come with an attitude of “each man shall help his friend” and mutual inspiration. The more we develop, the more the ego grows, and the more unbearable our discussions will become. We need to determine that connection with others opens up a perfect future for everyone and it is therefore our sublime, ultimate goal.

New Life 1303 – A Dialogue That Brings People Together

New Life 1303 – A Dialogue That Brings People Together
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and NitzahMazoz

In order to conduct a dialogue that brings people together, the two sides should know what each one wants. The first phase of a dialogue that brings people together is to get closer to each other and not to think that the other intends to gain from one’s destruction. The dialogue should be open and warm and there should be a feeling that we can fulfill each other and build a mutual connection.

According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, we can learn to build a bridge between our desires, thoughts, habits, and attributes, a bridge above all the forms of the ego that differentiate us. After the stage of getting closer, then comes the main part of the dialogue which is to understand the conditions of attaining the goal. The third phase is to understand that we have gotten closer as a result of our dialogue and that both sides are satisfied. A dialogue that brings people together calms us and also gives us a positive impression of the whole process.

New Life 1089 – Indifference Within Society

New Life 1089 – Indifference Within Society
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel

The indifference we find in today’s society will advance us toward a new, spiritual world. In ancient times, we required others for survival but today, children are immersed in technology of all sorts and don’t feel a need for people. Eventually, this social dryness and egoism will push us toward change and spirituality. The spiritual world is full of mutual support and connection based on the principle “You shall love your friend as yourself.” In the future, people will get fulfillment from communication with one another and everyone will be filled with a higher power.

New Life 1097 – What Causes Disease?

New Life 1097 – What Causes Disease?
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

The root of all disease is bad thoughts either about the person himself or about the person’s environment. Imbalance at the level of thought disrupts balance at the corporeal level through the nervous system. New disease appears as the human ego becomes stronger. Cancer, for example, is an endless, excessive desire to receive that causes a cancerous cell to devour surrounding cells. If a person would only want to give to others, think good thoughts about others, and bring about a positive connection between everyone, nothing bad would penetrate that person and the situation throughout the entire network would improve. Healing is also achieved through thoughts. When the principle “and you shall love your friend as yourself” permeates the world, all of us will be healthy, whole, and happy, even in the face of death.

New Life 1086 – Recognizing Good And Evil

New Life 1086 – Recognizing Good And Evil
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

Life is like an ongoing war for each person since we all want to benefit at the expense of others. A truly good person is someone who knows how to benefit others without personal benefit. We need a new educational process that depicts the benefit of caring for others so that people feel motivated to do good to one another. It must help us recognize that absolute darkness awaits us if we don’t’ change our human nature. More developed people will enjoy benefiting others because they will feel that we are all a single body.

New Life 1302 – The Art Of Connection Between People

New Life 1302 – The Art Of Connection Between People
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Communication should be based on the desire to complement, accept, and connect to each other rather than gain from others with the attitude of thieves. We should make room for one another within our own ego. This requires that the other person is more important to me than myself in the same way that our children are. If we try to make room inside for another person, we will discover that it is impossible and that we hit a wall. The wall only falls when we want to annul the distance between us and exist for the sake of the other’s soul. Connective communication is the art of filling others with what they need.

New Life 1301 – Communication Barriers

New Life 1301 – Communication Barriers
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

The root of communication barriers between us is the desire to enjoy, which makes each one think about how to make things better for himself. If I am not sure that I can get something by connecting to others, I feel blocked. The more we develop, the more the communication barriers grow. We are unable to understand each other since each one of us has a different goal. In order to overcome communication barriers, each party needs to increase the importance of the other person and become integrated with the other.

New Life 1300 – Listening Connects

New Life 1300 – Listening Connects
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and NitzahMazoz

A Kabbalist doesn’t listen to himself or the person before him but to the force of love and bestowal that we live in. If I want to connect to someone, I have to show him that he is dear to me and that what he says is important to me. The speaker also needs to pay attention to the response of the listener. As human beings, we look for attention, respect, and appreciation rather than solutions. We want to feel a sense of security and support through an internal connection. What is important is not how much I understand but how much I show my respect for the speaker.

New Life 1299 – Coping With Failure In A Connected World

New Life 1299 – Coping With Failure In A Connected World
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

In a connected world, failure is not an individual matter but stems out of the connection between an individual and society. A successful society is one in which each of its members contributes to the protection and success of every citizen. There will always be malfunctions and they will actually lead us to success if we use them to learn how to work more closely together. Anyone can be like the king of the world if he has the right support from his environment.
