Convention = Acceleration
Question: How can we unite at the upcoming
convention in New Jersey so we will accelerate time?
Laitman's Answer: The convention is the maximum
acceleration possible in our world. There is no action that's more powerful.
That is how I experience it myself.
I saw the
same thing with Rabash during the simplest actions made by the group to unite.
Even if we didn't travel somewhere together and did not connect other people
from the whole world to us, it was still very important to him.
convention I feel how we ascend a level higher and I gain the ability to
explain the material in new ways. I think everyone feels this.

The Path Through the Broken Heart
With all our
might we are trying to make at least some kind of practical action of bestowal,
to see our environment as bestowing and perfect. We desire to lower ourselves
before the environment and to see the friends as the greatest people of the
generation so that through them we would receive the opportunity to come to the
Creator. But the more we try to do this, the more we reveal that we only want
this egoistically, in order to profit at everyone's expense and to use everyone
for our own sake.
opportunities are constantly revealed to a person and he sees that he
immediately recognizes them and wants to use society for his own interests.
These are the best moments-revelations of truth. And if a person is willing to
endure them and to advance without milling around in them, but continuing to
move in the direction of bestowal to the environment, then he will reveal his
desire more and more.
He will see
that no matter how much he tries to act for the sake of bestowal, to bestow to
the environment and to reveal the Creator through others in order to bestow to
Him-in response to all the attempts he continuously reveals thoughts of the
"broken egoism" and opposite intentions, meaning symptoms of the broken heart.
Only to the
degree that a person aspires to bestowal and holiness does he reveal the expressions
of the impure force that rules over him. And there is nothing you can do about
it because we need this revelation. If egoism is revealed to a person so
strongly that he comes to hate it and doesn't want to remain in it, this is a
it is not necessary to ask for anything any longer. If one does, they will be
artificial requests. A prayer is the sensation that is in the heart. If a
person feels how much he suffers from his egoistic inclinations, which prevent
him from using the means that should have brought him to bestowal to the
Creator, then this is already enough. Through that he already becomes closer to
the Creator. Everything turns out to be the other way around! He is closest to
the Creator precisely when he reveals how broken and opposite to the Creator
his heart is.
that we should understand that our work is opposite to the work of a religious
person who feels perfect, inspired, and exalted. In Kabbalah everything is
opposite: the path to the Creator lies through the broken heart, which is
precisely the time we discover how opposite we are to Him. And precisely from
this profound descent, calling out to the Creator, we reveal that we have a
point of contact with Him.
joy and despair come simultaneously, supporting each other and uniting
together. That is when the Creator becomes revealed as a result of the
unification of these two opposites into one.
