Prove That You Are A Hero!
After the Mega Kabbalah Congress, many
complain about experiencing heaviness and "hardening of the heart." This is the Pharaoh, our ego,
awakening in us. If we now use the power that we have received during the
Congress in order to correct the heaviness that descended upon us, we will
We need to relate to the entire reality
as to a single whole. Both ascents and descents are the stages of the same
path. Advancement is impossible without these two forces acting one upon the
other. The state of excitement is not yet advancement. This not yet a step
forward but only the force received from Above. Afterward, we need to realize
If you receive this force and do not
wish to realize it, you resemble a clogged pipe that is being pressured from
within but is unwilling to pass this pressure further. Next time, you won't
receive anything! You will be forced to leave this path, and someone else will
be chosen for this mission from Above.
We should understand that we received a
force, and by itself, it doesn't self-realize. It is our duty to continue
working with it by ourselves. If you don't utilize whatever was given to you,
you won't receive any additional strength and will become increasingly passive.
And on the contrary, anybody who now
will quickly invest all the received forces into circulation of Kabbalah will
feel himself receiving more and more from Above. We need to open the pipe
and let the energy flow freely through it!

The Secret Code Of The Zohar
Question: Can we say that the flow of the words
in The Zohar changes the strength and the direction of the forces that
bind us together?
Dr. Laitman's Answer: We do not know how it works. Something
about it is still deeply hidden from us. The Book is written in a
language that seemingly allows us to discern quite logical things in it, relate
to them, and somehow picture ourselves in them or them in us. There is a
certain interaction between me and The Book, a connection and
understanding that The Book talks about me and I am inside of it.
But this is a completely false
sensation. It is simply the form in which the story is presented to us, the
story that is extremely distant, unfamiliar, and foreign to us. It is like
some beast that acquired a human form, talked to us, and we could only grasp
its outer form: its arms, legs, or head. But it is absolutely not the case.
Consequently, we need to relate to The
Zohar as containing a certain secret code, a sequence of spiritual
instructions. I do not know how they are written from the inside and cannot
come into contact with them. In order to establish at least some sort of
connection with these spiritual instructions, I read The Zohar. However,
the connection emerges not by my hearing or reading the text; rather,
it is built to the measure of my desire to unite with this inner code
so that it can transform me.
The Book can be written in a variety of forms, and I may not
understand a single word of it. What counts is my desire for the inner content
of The Book to correct me. Its inner content is the spiritual world with
its entire apparatus, actions, and forces, not the paper and print within the
