The Immutability Of Kabbalistic Sources

laitman_209Remark: In Kabbalah, a book, a source written by a Kabbalist even several thousand years ago, plays a very important role and is a means of spiritual attainment. For example, The Book of Zohar. In psychology, this is not so.

My Comment: Kabbalistic sources do not change, while texts of any books concerning psychology, politics, and everything humanity does, except for the natural sciences, are constantly changing because a person changes.

Therefore, what was written by psychologists 100 to 150 years ago or philosophers 500 or 1,000 years ago, today, of course, is no longer relevant. If the ancient Greek philosophers believed that the soul can be exhaled and inhaled, now no one has such primitive thinking about it.

Kabbalah, however, operates always with the same tools and objects as before.

Question: Does it mean that if we met a Kabbalist who lived 2,000 to 3,000 or 500 years ago, we would find a common language with him?

Answer: We would not only find a common language, but also would learn from him!

We would have a common language, that is, an absolute understanding of each other, and it would be interesting to talk to this person. Besides, we would have a common spoken language.

For example, if a modern French person met a French person who lived 500 years ago, they would not understand each other. Or take, for example, the Cyrillic alphabet created by Cyril and Methodius in which the letters and all kinds of circles have nothing to do with the modern alphabet.

Yet, Hebrew never changed. After all, there are laws according to which each letter must be precisely the way it is since its outline comes from the conformance of spiritual forces. In addition, the combination of Hebrew letters is nothing more than signs for expressing feelings of a person who has attainment of the Creator. That is why it never changes.

Blitz Of Kabbalah Tips – 4/21/19

laitman_963.6Question: How can we influence the friends to improve the connection between us?

Answer: We must show them an example of correct and good connection. That is how we influence them.

Question: If I have a desire that is not fulfilled by the teacher, how and with what can fulfill it? Is it necessary to understand the teacher?

Answer: You can set any goal that you want for yourself, achieve anything you want. However, this achievement must be in the ten, then there will be no limitations and you will not make a mistake. You will reach the teacher, reach the Creator, whatever you want, but it must necessarily be in the ten.

Question: How will I know if my current level of knowledge matches the level of the soul?

Answer: No. Your current level of knowledge still does not match the root of the soul. The root of all souls is in the world of Atzilut, and we are still not even in the worlds of Beria, Yetzira and Assiya. I hope that throughout the coming year we will begin to feel that we are approaching the world of Atzilut.

Question: Are we a bad copy of the Creator or His reverse form?

Answer: We are not a bad copy; rather, we are a completely opposite copy, His completely corrupted copy.

Question: Does a Kabbalist look at this world and at what is happening in it and see streams of energy and intelligence, the thought of the Creator?

Answer: Certainly. He feels the thought of the Creator gradually materializing in our consciousness. We are His thought.

Question: In our world, are we in the center of a gaping void?

Answer: It depends on who is feeling this. But in principle, yes, it is true.

Question: With the help of what tools and principles does the higher intellect manage the world?

Answer: The tool is very simple: light and desire. They are opposite to each other, but the desire has the ability to receive the intention from the light and thus become similar to the light. Then it can approach the light until it reaches a state of being fully merged with it.

Question: Will there be an end to our days? Will it be an event?

Answer: The end of days will be when you rise above our world. Then, in your spiritual Kli you will feel the world without time. This is what is called the end of days.

Question: Why is the goal of creation hidden from, unattainable by, and undesirable to me?

Answer: The goal of creation is not hidden from you; you are hiding it from yourself through your properties. The spiritual goal is above the physical goal. You do not have senses that are identical to it; therefore, it is said that it is hidden. But you are the one who is hiding it. Acquire identical, similar characteristics that are equivalent to those of the Creator, and you will begin to feel spirituality.

Question: If our world does not exist, what is eternity in the words of a Kabbalist?

Answer: Eternity is the world of Ein Sof, which we reach when we rise through the levels of all the worlds. Our world does not even exist. It is an imaginary central point of all the worlds.

Think About The Creator

laitman_962.2Question: There are many methods of spiritual advancement that seemingly speak about the same thing but disagree with the methods of attaining the Creator. Should each nation have its own method of attaining the upper force?

Answer: This is true, because attaining the Creator is possible only through annulment and elimination of the egoism that separates a person from the Creator. This work really depends on a person’s nature. The main thorough abolition of one’s egoism is called the method of Israel, which Abraham received. There are methods that he gave as gifts to the seventy nations of the world that at that time lived in ancient Babylon.

It is the same principle: one should annul one’s egoism. With this annulment, a person begins to feel the upper force. Every nation has its own type of egoism, and therefore, the methods of its annulment differ. However, any person can use the method of Kabbalah as the main method that helps everyone. The science of Kabbalah is a wide, reliable path, ready for each and every person. Other nations can use their methods, but there is a difference in the type of spiritual attainment they can reach this way.

It is unnecessary for everyone to study the wisdom of Kabbalah because we study not in order to know, but in order to attract the reforming light. The ego’s annulment is possible in different ways. For example, I know of a case where due to great suffering, a person annulled his ego so much that he received a certain sense of the Creator. The method of Kabbalah is like the main highway. But there are all kinds of paths around it designated for different kinds of souls.1

If I do not think about myself, then I am able to think about the Creator. There cannot be two masters in the world: it is either me or the Creator. I do not care about myself but only about how not to disconnect from the thought that the Creator shapes me at every moment, implementing the thought of creation.

I go to work, take care of the family, think about how to safely cross the road, but at the same time, I want to feel how every moment and every situation has been arranged for me by the Creator. This means not thinking about yourself because I think everything is done by the Creator, not that I arrange everything myself.2

Kabbalah And Beliefs, Part 2

laitman_214.01The Creator Is a Never-Changing Constant

Remark: Most spiritual practices state that the Creator changes His attitude toward a person depending on the person’s behavior. Based on this, a lot of various practices have been established that discuss how to interact with the Creator.

Kabbalah tells us that the Creator is a substance or law of nature that has no change of attitude toward a person.

My Comment: The Creator is an unchanging constant. We are the ones who change, and it seems to us that the world is changing in relation to us. In reality, the world is my reflection and I am the only one that changes.

Question: But we see that sometimes the upper force has a positive effect on us and sometimes it is negative. What does it depend on?

Answer: This is because I am changing and the force called the Creator is constant. The absolute cannot change because He is perfect. It is the property of utter goodness, ultimate connection, absolute love.

I am changing, and depending on my changes in relation to the Creator, it seems to me that He is the one who changes; thus, I see Him sometimes as good and sometimes as evil.

For example, a mother always loves her child equally. But if you ask the child, he would tell you: “Mom is bad today and yesterday she was good.” That is, he is interpreting his mother’s behavior according to his own conduct.

A Person’s Intentions Are What One Is

Laitman_095Remark: The subject of the study of the wisdom of Kabbalah is the most internal part of a person—the intention. No other science explores this.

For example, psychology explores only feelings, emotions, all kinds of reactions of a person, and desires.

My Comment: In addition, psychology also explores intention, but it is not a science because in our world there are no clear possibilities to measure and compare a person’s psychological parameters.

Kabbalah, however, as a science about intentions, gives us a tool for a completely different approach. Usually, we evaluate a person according to his or her actions and their results, whereas Kabbalah evaluates a person according to his or her intentions. That is the difference. After all, in our world I can perform bad actions with good intentions and vice versa. Bad intentions can sometimes cause good actions.

In general, revealing a person’s intentions is of primal importance. After all, our intentions are what we are, and our actions and desires depend not on us, but arise in us gradually in the course of our physical development.

laitman_560Two Worlds: Roots and Branches

Remark: Throughout history and to this day, there are several thousand belief systems in the world.

If we look at reality from the perspective of Kabbalah, on one hand, there is a constant development of human society and beliefs as a cultural phenomenon. On the other hand, there is internal change in humanity, i.e., our desires are changing, and as a result of this, our beliefs change from pagan to monotheism, etc.

What is the difference between Kabbalah and various beliefs from the perspective of internal development? For example, there is a very important rule in Kabbalah that all the processes occurring in the spiritual worlds must manifest in the material world at least once.

My Comment: The spiritual worlds are the root of everything that occurs, and our world is a consequence or a branch of that root. Therefore, everything that exists in the upper worlds must somehow manifest itself in our world, at least once, in some particular form.

For instance, a very powerful force or some particular action in the upper world might manifest in our world as a barely noticeable occurrence or force.

The fact is that the upper root must always come in contact with our world and create its branch in it. We, proceeding from that branch, can learn something about the root itself.

Does Spirituality Affect Corporeality?

Laitman_633.3Question: How does being in the spiritual dimension affect the corporeal future of an individual person and humanity?

Answer: It does but not in everything, because besides you, there are several billion people, everything else in this universe, and in all the worlds.

Although you do interfere with the fate of the people and the world, but you do so only in a very limited way. You have to assemble all the people together, and then you will change everything.

Call To The Heart Of Your Friend

laitman_942Question: It is written, “Do speak to the sagging friends to join us.” (Baal HaSulam, Letter No 12). Before each congress many friends feel that their urge to connect fades a little. How can I appeal to the heart of the friend? With what?

Answer: Just ask for them, nothing else is required. That is first.

Second, naturally, before the congress, there is a division into those who rush to the congress, and those who, as if back off.

It depends on how much effort a person has made, and how ready he is, which affects him by pushing him either forward or backward.

Seeing The Creator Behind Each Friend

laitman_544Question: How can I protect myself from weakening because of the negative words and emotions that I often get from others studying Kabbalah?

Answer: You should treat this very simply: There is no one else; there is only the Creator. He dresses in all the friends who seem to exist to you, and through them He conducts His exercises on you.

Suddenly it seems that the friends are saying something to you, or neglecting you, or humiliating you. In fact, it is not them, but the Creator who treats you this way. Therefore, always pay attention to them, but keep in mind that you receive it from the Creator.

Therefore, you should see the Creator behind each friend. Then you will have no complaints about them but only about yourself or the Creator.

Question: Does all this come from the Creator for the purpose of our advancement?

Answer: Certainly.

Question: Does humiliation advance a person?

Answer: Every moment of your life is meant only in order to advance you. The Creator constantly drags you to Him, even when you do not feel it. This is what He does.
