The Solution Is Between Us
from Japan: What should our inner work be in emergency
situations? While I watch the lessons, the quakes are going on non-stop.
Laitman's Answer: During
these days we have to focus on unity even more and be confident that precisely
by virtue of our inner efforts will we be able to prevent similar catastrophes
in the world, both in Japan and in all the regions where people are now
Why do they
suffer? Why don't they advance toward correction by the right path? Why don't
they awaken and come out into the streets shouting, "The Messiah now!"? Stated
differently, why don't they demand correction, change, a new state?
Why do they
instead shout for a change in government? How will this help them? No one will
be any better off if this happens, not even if the Libyan dictator steps down.
The resulting gap will be filled by Islamic radicalism or some other party, but
this will be just blind psychological compensation. In practice people won't
feel better. This is still the path of suffering.
times the world is swiftly acquiring more weapons. We are renewing the arms
race that was halted before, as if we want to compete at how strong we are. But
how silly it is to quarrel like little children! Yet, look at how much energy
and resources this is taking away.
As a result,
everything depends on us, on all of our friends across the whole world who have
received a drive to be corrected. We have to unite from within and feel that we
are one whole. Then, by wishing to unite the whole world into one, we will help
others come closer as well. After all, they are a passive part of ourselves.
They are unable to come closer on their own, until we present them with the
opportunity to connect to us.
person receives an awakening, a point in the heart, he will come to us and will
join all those who activate and accelerate development, adapting the speed of
their work to the speed at which new Reshimot emerge. Then no forces,
tsunamis, revolutions, wars, and others such things will force us to advance in
a negative manner.
depends on our efforts, on the degree to which we work on unification. There is
no other solution for the world.

The World Is Round
Question from Japan: What are the
reasons for the disaster that is happening to us? According to the forecasts
there are more quakes ahead for us. Can all of us prevent these events here and
in the whole world?
Dr. Laitman's Answer: In order to
answer this question we must first understand where we are. We are in a "round"
world. This is what the science
of Kabbalah explains to us in its section on "perception of reality."
Let's not wait for painful proofs of this
fact to become expressed in our world. By way of painful experience we are
discovering that we are all interconnected, that the world is global and
integral in which there is a butterfly effect, and so on. Let's not have to
learn the lessons from disasters that will constantly occur in order to
convince us of this. Let's instead learn from the science of Kabbalah.
By the time our life experience starts
working, it may be too late. How many more tsunamis, earthquakes, and other
disasters have to happen for us to get smarter? Let's instead turn to science
and wisdom. It is written, "The one who learns is wise." So what does the wise
We know from the science of Kabbalah that all
of reality is felt inside of us because it is inside of us. My perception
divides into five levels. Three of the levels are my inner sensations: root, soul, and body.
They "clothe" into me from inside. Besides this, there are external details of
perception which I perceive on the outside, outside of me: clothing and castle.
This is the entire world outside of me. Clothing is everything inside the area
that my body or senses can reach, while castle are the far away, unattainable
things, or in other words, the things not subject to my control.
That is how reality is divided. Its inner
part is called Galgalta ve Eynaim while the external part is called AHP.
This division was caused by the spiritual destruction, which is the reason why
we only slightly feel the Galgalta ve Eynaim inside of us and have no
sensation at all that AHP is also part of us. That is how we will
divide our reality until the very end of correction when Galgalta ve Eynaim will unite with AHP into the whole ten Sefirot.
From here we must draw the following
conclusion: We feel everything inside of our Kelim. These may be a
tsunami, the earth, or the universe with all its stars and galaxies. Everything
is inside of me, in my egoistic desire. That is how my desire is built so in it
I perceive reality divided in two: "me" and "outside of me." "Me" is Galgalta
ve Eynaim, the root, soul, and body, while "outside of me" is AHP,
clothing and castle, the two external categories of perception.
Various changes take place in my inner and
outer Kelim. Looking at natural disasters, it is very difficult to
understand why these painful events are taking place in the external Kelim rather
than the inner Kelim. Why do these changes influence a specific part
of my soul today, called "the Japanese people"? Why did the catastrophe befall
them of all people?
My soul also includes others parts which I
perceive as my friends. In reality, they do not exist by themselves, but as
parts of me in my eyes. It will be so until I complete my perception and then
everything will unite into one whole, into a single desire, welded and entirely
aimed at bestowal. This is the corrected form.
Without viewing reality from these positions,
we will never be able to correctly perceive what is happening, including wars,
catastrophes, corruption, or anything else. We will never be able to justify
the Creator or understand how
everything is moving in the direction of correction.
However, we won't be able to manage without
having the right perspective of things, without having a picture of the "round"
world that is inside a person and depends on his correction. There is nothing outside
of me. Everything is me. This is my earth, my earthquake, my Japan, my Libya,
my Israel, my planet, and my universe. And all of it reflects my qualities,
which are not corrected yet.
