“Dr. Kurt Fleischer, the leader of the Liberals in the Berlin Jewish Community Assembly, argued in 1929 that “Anti-Semitism is the scourge that God has sent us in order to lead us together and weld us together”

Spiritual progress happens through our mutual #inclusion in one another: the smaller the distance between us, the closer we are to the Creator. We will start to feel that this is the same distance. And then we will see that by separating us, the Pharaoh works for our own good.

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

Between #truth and falsehood, we can enter into the form called the Creator. “Bo-re” – “come and see.” I come from a lie, His opposite state, to Him, to the truth. All attainment is the revelation of the truth. Truth is the source of life in which we discover and feel everything.

The Creator is the Upper force, and the truth is His program. The program can work if it includes the opposite form, falsehood. Falsehood in the Creator is His opposite. To understand the Creator, creatures must be created from two forms: truth and falsehood.

Everything around us is a lie. If we treat a lie as coming from the Creator, directing us to the right state, then for us this lie is part of the truth. I’m ready to be in a lie if it leads to the truth. Then I can understand it, feel it, and it will change me, lead me to the truth

In our world, truth is a lie. We can’t live without it. April Fool’s is not just a day of the year. We’ve been constantly lying to each other all year. The evil inclination, egoism, forces us to lie because we do not want to tell each other the truth but what is beneficial to us.

The Upper force is the general force of #nature. All nature is a program, all its parts are interconnected and united. Congruence with the Upper force gives us the feeling of living inside a good force—everyone can succeed in all that they do, for it is all aimed at unification.

Unification happens inside man’s desire. All desires unite, and in the single desire start resembling the Upper force. Everything comes to similarity: people “below” and the Upper force of nature “above.” They develop contact and support between them, and start to feel each other.

We are unable to unite with each other, nor can we exist without #unity. We cannot conquer each other, nor can we free ourselves from the power of #evil, #egoism. We are at an impasse and don’t know what to do. But we have the opportunity to tip the scales one way or the other.

There are two forces at work in society: the force of unification, love, rapprochement, dialogue, cooperation, and the force that separates people, sets them against each other and creates rivalry. There are periods of each of these developments. We cannot control such processes.

What is the difference between Kabbalistic dates and holidays and secular or religious ones? By the fact that they originate from their true source—the Torah, descending from the Creator of the Upper light, and its manifestation in the desire—created matter.

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

We will not be able to organize a good society by debating “who is right and who is wrong.” The one who’s right is the one who wishes to unite with those who are against him. We thereby give the Creator a place for revelation and management.
We have just one head of government—”above.”

In the network of forces between us, in opposition to one another and, at the same time, by rising above the rejection, we reveal the upper force. Only when we are united above all the differences does the upper force become revealed and rules over us.

The Creator created us opposite—we all live in #hatred and rejection from each other. But we should not take the breakage into account. On the contrary, “Love will cover all sins.” No matter how many sins we reveal, we must reveal love above them.

In the news: In Japan in 2020 the number of #suicides was higher than the number of #coronavirus deaths.
This sounds like an invitation to increase the dissemination of Kabbalah in #Japan…!

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

Everything that happens to us is sent to us by the Creator. He commits a transgression, and we cover it with love. We cannot destroy his work, but thanks to Him creating transgressions and hatred, we can reach love and unity. One is impossible without the other.

Either we are coming closer to goodness and unity, or to a third world nuclear war. How much time will it take? The Creator has no concept of time. The program will not change. As Baal HaSulam writes, millions of years later, life and the process of development….will begin anew on planet Earth.

We are opposite to one another, but along with that we complement one another and thus reach perfection. No one can exist with another person unless he forcefully bends him. A developed person wants good, pure-hearted relationships, not out of fear.

There’s no bad or good. Each one considers the other bad, and himself good. Complementing is when despite fights and arguments, each one understands how to properly coexist with others, mutually complementing one another for the sake of society. For the sake of society and not only for one’s own sake.

We have an evil and good inclination. It is written, “Two cling to the talit“—each one says, “everything is mine.” they argue. Either they’ll tear a person apart or the person will be able to unite them. Neither quality can leave the stage: not the historical, nor the human, both are present everywhere.

The force of #Moses pulls out those who understand that living in the state of Egypt is low and miserable, that we are controlled by our #egoism, and it obligates us to lead this kind of life. Rising above egoism is our work, our mission, our goal. This is the meaning of the #Passover holiday.

#Passover is a transition from the control of the ego-desire, “everything for me,” even when it is harmful to the neighbor, to the desire “for the sake of others”—even at one’s own expense. This is a leap from #egoism to bestowal, from #hatred to love when we change our life and shift from the evil inclination—the will to receive, to a good one—the will to bestow.

We are between heaven and earth, under Pharaoh’s power. We want to run away from him, but don’t understand how. The young generation is looking for what it can do with its life, “What are we living for,” “Why?” We must help it find a way to come out of #Egypt, rise above all the egoistic values of Egypt, and find new ones. #Passover

#Pharaoh is a good force, our teacher. It pulls us to develop our former lives so we would check it and make sure that we cannot live without #purpose, and our desire will be renewed. We have to move forward. But how and to where?
Pharaoh becomes crueler from one blow to another, teaching us what to desire, what to strive for.
#passover

Humanity today is in a state of “Pharaoh,” the general #egoism that shapes our lives. It desires and loves power, and we cannot escape it. We are its slaves. For now we agree with #Pharaoh and his control, but at the same time, discontent and awareness of #evil awakens in us.

Man exists on the highest developmental degree. When he starts correcting his relationships with other people, the other degrees—still, animate, and still, will instantly enter a balance. The world will calm down and become wonderful and integral. #environment

We are confident that by realizing “green” projects, we are conserving nature. However, it is not the global nature that we have to correct—rather, we must correct the person. All of nature is integral and interconnected on all degrees.
#climate #sustainability

The primary way out of any #tragedy must be realization of evil of our relationships.

We need more energy as we want to produce a greater variety of unnecessary products. By making the right calculation, we would have saved on excesses. But the ego will not allow us to do so. Knowing that we will die in a year will not help us change our behavior.
I’m enjoying the right now—and that’s enough!
#consumerism #energy

It’s been 10 years since the tragedy at the Fukushima #nuclear plant. But humanity does not learn lessons from tragedies. It learns only from blows. All the blows that humanity has undergone in times of war, catastrophes, and tsunamis, have accelerated the negative development.
We continue to follow a flawed path.

I vote for a government that can ensure safety in #Israel. The main idea that drives me is unity of the nation, but unity can exist only with those who are alive, not with those who have died. #IsraElex4

Indifference to the #Elections2021. If we weren’t surrounded by enemies, awaiting our weakness to attack, there would be no point in having elections. If not for national security, we could just sleep. The elections should be taken seriously, without succumbing to despair. It’s time to wake up.

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

Humanity has gained new experience: what it’s like to live without the “toys” it is used to. Restricted conditions, detachment from work and entertainment, has woken us up to think more seriously about life and to have a different attitude to what is happening. More and more often, we will ask the question: how and what for do we live?

We have to become more serious in our decisions and actions. Like children after being punished, we have to understand that we have to improve and follow the laws of nature, become more united, not inflict harm on one another—since there is no choice: we live on one planet.

There is no #punishment from the Creator’s side. The #lockdown for a year is not a punishment, but correction. Nature wants to teach us to enjoy bestowal and love for the neighbor. For now we lack the understanding and taste for this. Soon we will see that there is no going back to the past. Great changes are coming.
#coronavirus #future

“The suffering of many is half of the consolation.” After a lengthy #lockdown, people’s #joy enhances the excitement of returning to the prior lifestyle. But the Creator will “ruin” this excitement. He will show the path of development to humanity in new forms. #Nature will defeat us— we will follow its laws.
