Aimed at the Goal
you want to protect yourself against all foreign thoughts, you must be attached
to an environment that holds your aim to the goal.
Kabbalists told us to choose an environment that will give us the feeling of
importance of internal attainment, to love them, to connect to them, since they
are parts of your soul, and through the mutual reading to invite the light that
will produce the inner picture. That's it!
our efforts to describe each and every word in the next level, from those words,
from an even higher level, from a power higher than that, from the root to the
branch; we invite and draw the Force that is called, "Light that Reforms." This
is so in each level and in each state, with the same principle existing in all
the 125 levels that our Kli must rise through. Thus we must transfer
everything to lights and vessels in an absolute way. There is no such thing as
"our world." It is not called "an imaginary world" for no reason.
you want to protect yourself against all the foreign thoughts, you need to
attach to an environment that holds you aimed to the goal. Then the problem
isn't in you, but in your connection with the friends.

The Quality of Judgment (Midat ha Din)
What is the quality of
judgment in spirituality?
Everything opposite to
the quality of bestowal is called "judgment." This oppositeness in
the qualities, the nature that's opposite to the Creator is called "the
quality of judgment."
-from 1st part of the daily Kabbalah lesson
is hidden behind the Kabbalistic term "To Pass Machsom"?
the wisdom of Kabbalah we learn that everything in reality is incorporated only
from the vessel (from the desire) and the Light which reforms this desire into
good, into bestowal. From our state, which is the first step, the initial one
in which the vessel is completely opposite to the Light; we have to make a
spiritual ascent and eventually reach the complete state, to the final degree
according to the plan of creation, where the vessel equalizes completely with
the Light. In this ascent there are 125 degrees, but the principle of ascent
from one degree to the other is the same principle: Making the effort to
describe each and every word which is written in the books of Kabbalah in the language of
roots, in its spiritual essence, we invite from the upper level, the next one,
to our level, the Upper Force, called the Light which reforms, and this is what
it happens to a person for the first time and he starts with each and every
word to see only the Lights and the vessels, to reveal the ratio between his
lower level to the upper level, he starts to understand the language of
branches, to understand how the upper level draws for the lower level its
world, this is called passing "Machsom" (the barrier)-a barrier in
understanding, perceiving the reality.

"Out of Zion the Torah will go forth"
What's the similarity between the plasma TV
in your living room and the spiritual "image"?
Question from a Student: During the study I
feel it is a great effort to try and keep with the correct thought; many times I have a feeling of disconnected thought,
which requires me to retry and make an effort to get back to the right thought;
and so on, again and again. What should I do?
Dr. Laitman's Answer: The wisdom of
Kabbalah tells us that spiritual advancement happens within those "ups" and
"downs," or "entries" and "exits," which a person feels in relation towards
spirituality. The faster the pace of state changes, the sharper and richer the
sensation becomes. It can get to a point where there can be in one second 1000
exits and re-entries to the right thought.
The same principle exists in a very clear
way in today's technology. For instance, if you have purchased a TV lately, you
might have noticed the depiction of "display frequency" (Hz), which is
basically the rate at which the TV can change pictures. This aspect has
influence on the quality of the picture on the TV, so that the higher the
frequency, you can see more details in a second, and thus the image is clearer
From this, we shouldn't be sorry for the
multitude of entries and exits, for it is specifically on them that the
spiritual picture is built, and the connection with the Creator is established,
the One who creates it in us. This is what Kabbalists were writing about when
they wrote: "Out of Zion the Torah will go forth" (Zion = exits).
