A Worldwide Action of Love Dissemination!

 

Kabbalists left us clear instructions on what to do with the hatred that becomes revealed to us, telling us that it should be viewed as a means of work by continuously correcting it. Above this hatred, we should constantly build a bridge between us.

That is why a general, global crisis is being revealed in the world today-a global lack of connection between us. And it is being revealed precisely in order for us to create this connection!

This is so simple, and the picture that emerges is so clear. I don't see any difficulties here. We just have to explain it again and again in order to open a person's eyes. What is happening in front of us right now is a clear revelation of the broken vessel, whose parts are unable to connect with one another and therefore, they suffer.

We want to lovingly inform all of these broken parts that we won't feel better unless we glue our broken vessel together. A few years ago I already said that there is a crisis ahead of us, and now it has happened. Soon we will reveal newer and newer problems, and it will only keep gaining speed.

We have to understand that what's happening is the revelation of our breaking, and we have to arm ourselves with the remedy that prevents the illness. Then we will accept every blow with understanding and will immediately correct it.

This way, we can transform the evil that becomes revealed to goodness, increasing it by 620 times! After all, the Light of NaRaNHY is "620 times" greater than the Light of Neshama of the still level. And if I now turn hatred to love, I earn 620 times more Light!

Imagine how wonderful it would be if goodness 620 times greater than the force of evil was now revealed in the world !? What else would the world lack? Everything would be present in abundance, including sources of energy, good ecology, tranquility, and harmony.

Besides, inside of this we would reveal immortality and eternity because upon this bridge between us, we reveal a connection with the Root and rise to Its level! All forms of connection are present inside of us, and we have to start working on them: on the virtual, global, integral connection. We have to correct all of these destroyed connections and turn them into good ones.

Let us hope that we will attain love on this "day of love," which is celebrated today. This is a good sign, and the perfect time to enter all of the virtual networks and explain what is love. Let this be our act of "love dissemination." With this appeal, I turn to all of my readers and students all over the world!

The Day of Love after the Day of Destruction

 

Question: Why are we taking about hatred if most people don't feel hatred for each other, but just indifference?

Dr. Laitman's Answer: When I think that the grass is greener on the neighbor's lawn or I envy his new car, this is called hatred. That's because I assess my well-being in relation to my environment, and if the comparison is not in my favor, this causes me to feel hatred for others.

With their successes, they force me to feel bad and to suffer. And naturally, I hate them for that. You may not be aware of it, but it's so.

It's impossible for me to be indifferent to others because we are connected within one system and I undoubtedly assess my state by what others have. That is how we are by nature, wishing to see everyone else as lower than us and to have everyone serve us. If you don't understand this, then you simply lack awareness.

When do I reveal that I want everyone to be my servants? When I try to serve them! This lets me see just how much I want the opposite!

It's not simple revealing your hatred. One reaches Mount Sinai (the mountain of hatred) and the reception of the Torah only after a very lengthy preparation, the Egyptian slavery and the journey around the desert. As long as you don't reveal your hatred, you do not need the Torah.

There are many people in the world who deem themselves righteous and think that they don't wish bad for others, that they love others. But they simply don't feel their hatred. If they really tried loving others, they would reveal just how much they hate them. One has to go through the Egyptian exile in order to reveal hatred.

This is why the "day of love" (Tu B'Av, the 15th of Av) happens after the day of destruction, the 9th of Av. After we reveal the evil, the enormous, horrible crisis, the hatred between us, this is followed by 5 days (5 levels) when we correct ourselves and reach love. It happens only in this form!

Therefore, in our regular lives, if a husband and wife don't quarrel, then they don't reveal their love. Sometimes people pick a fight on purpose, doing it instinctively in order to feel sweetness and the taste of their relationship by making up. Indifference is the worst possible thing.
