Transcript

Talks with Rav Michael Laitman, PhD


Nir Friedman: My name is Nir Friedman. I’m a simple man. I wanna have a good time. I wanna go to the sea-side or to a good party. And now to start thinking about the world to come and this world, it feels a bit too much sometimes.

Rav Michael Laitman, PhD: You know what? If you still have a chance, run away.

Avihu Medina: There’s no need to ask a lot of questions. Why do we have to look into and examine things that we do not need that much in our daily lives?

Rav Laitman: We can’t help it. From generation to generation, our ego, our desire to ask questions—to understand why we are living, what we’re living for, why we struggle so much, why life is so hard, and who pulls the strings—grows. All these questions make us restless.

Moti Rosenblum: Who am I? Where am I going?

Rav Laitman: What makes you ask these questions?

Moti Rosenblum: Who will give me an answer?

Rav Laitman: You, and only you.

Shemuel Vilosney: What are people trying to achieve? Money, respect, family, and children. But what will I do with that sensation of emptiness? What will I fill it with? You know life flies by; what will you be left with when it ends?

Kabbalah on Karma Channel

Oren Smadja: This is a true story. I wrestled the championship and it lasted maybe four hours. Four hours passed, and in that time the Upper Force descended upon me. I’m saying this quite, um…

Rav Laitman: You actually felt it?

Moshe Ivgy: If He’s the Perfect One and He created us as the sea, then why did He take us and hit us on the head?

Rav Laitman: Not just once but a number of times.

Moshe Ivgy: It’s like you take a little child and you hit him in the head with a ten pound hammer. He goes to the hospital, they treat him, and he’s left retarded. You say, “What can you do? He’s retarded.” But it’s no surprise that he’s retarded.

You understand? He takes people and He shakes them up and He turns them into very mean creatures, into rapists and murderers and criminals that devastate the world in every possible way. And then He lets people like Saddam Hussein or Hitler come to power and they murder millions upon millions of people. All this only in order to give you a lesson?

Rav Laitman: You made something out of yourself in this world—you that didn’t exist before. You created something in your lifetime as a sphere that floats in the air. It is you with all of your energy and information. So does it all just disappear?

Gidon Reiher: So according to the wisdom of Kabbalah, could I continue to live forever?

Rav Laitman: No problem—forever. Today I give you an opportunity to come into resonance with the eternal part that is in you.

Nir Friedman: If I cut a man open, I won’t find a soul inside, physically.

Rav Laitman: No, the soul is a place where we receive pleasure.

Nir Friedman: Is it possible that I received someone else’s soul?

Rav Laitman: No, the soul always stays with you. Maybe you don’t look the same…

Nir Friedman: Maybe I was more attractive…

Kabbalah on Karma Channel

Roey Levi: Isn’t there a place for freedom in our lives where we make decisions?

Rav Laitman: In other words, where is our choice?

Roey Levi: Where is my choice and the choice of others?

Rav Laitman: Does free choice exist at all? No.

Yochi Brandes:
No Rav Laitman, you will not take my free will away from me. I grew up in a religious, orthodox home…

Hemi Rudner: What’s the role of music in the world?

Rav Laitman: All of the sounds that we want to make, on all of the instruments, all of them, are but the cry of the soul.

Nensi Brandes: On one hand, it’s good to achieve such elevated, spiritual degrees. But the fact that you cease to reincarnate means that you close your shop.

Rav Laitman: Yes, but you open a supermarket…

Yochi Brandes: I left my orthodox environment not because they told me to. They told me, “No, no, no, don’t leave.” But I left. That was my free choice.

Rav Laitman: No, no it wasn’t. No.

Yochi Brandes: What are you saying? Why then?

Rav Laitman: You came out of the power of one environment, and into the power of another.

Yochi Brandes: What is the other power?

Rav Laitman: The other power is the secular environment.

Rav Laitman: Where is the truth here and where is the lie?

Roey Levi: The lie doesn’t interest me. Where’s the truth?

Guy Gudes: Are there answers in The Book of Zohar or other Kabbalistic books about when the world is going to end?

Eyal Shehter: Is there a date? How much time will it take for humanity to say, “We want to change right now, we want it!”

Rav Laitman: Seven or eight years.

Eyal Shehter: It’ll happen in just seven or eight years?

Rav Laitman: All of the suffering makes you ask the question: What am I living for?

Moshe Ivgy: What am I living for?

Eden Harel: Is it possible to see spiritual places, spiritual worlds also with our physical eyes?

Rav Laitman: And if a person doesn’t have eyes it means they can’t see the spiritual? And if we don’t have a body, it means that we die?

Eden Harel: Yes, what happens then? The soul reincarnates?

Rav Laitman: Such things exist, but does that mean that we also lose the sixth sense?

Baldi Otier: Do you think that I will succeed with my current plans, with the new shows that I’m doing?

Rav Laitman: First of all, the fact that you bring joy into the world is a great privilege indeed.

Avi Toeldan: Well, it seems that it’s impossible, in such a short time, to raise and answer all of these difficult questions. But it was a great pleasure for me to have visited the group of Rav Laitman. However, I wish that I had talks like this everyday. This is exactly the thing that we’re lacking—the laws and the logic that we still fail to grasp, but we absolutely must try to understand.
