Don’t Let Yourself Fall
see how many people who felt great excitement at the Convention are
experiencing fatigue and depression now that it's over. Why did everyone
feel such an elevated mood? It was because we were under a powerful influence
from the environment. So what is it that now prevents us from feeling the same
we have to work on our own to create a powerful environment for ourselves. At
the Convention this happened by itself thanks to the enormous force of
influence from the great mass of people who spent so much time preparing for
these special moments, the three days of the Convention. Our preparation
worked, together with the great help that we received from Above (Itaruta de

Then we will feel that we are advancing just as powerfully as we did at the
Convention! We will be able to make great leaps along the path; otherwise we
will stretch out over a year or even years what we can achieve within a week.

Kabbalah Lesson 11/23/10, "Body and Soul"
The Creator’s Call Sign
often ask me what is Kabbalah and I try to explain its essence and purpose. In response many people admit,
"Yeah, I also feel that way. Yeah, I know what you're talking about." So does
this mean they have a point
in the heart? How do the people who have this point differ from other
people who are also looking for something?
Dr. Laitman's Answer: The
point in the heart is a part of the Creator. When it becomes
revealed in you, you hear a "call sign" calling you to Him.
We recognize the point in the heart
when it brings a person to the science of Kabbalah, to the place or the net
where all our points come from. Kabbalah is not the books, but the wisdom and the program of the common system.
Kabbalah books bring you the force of this program and you use it to enact the
first spiritual impulse.
In reality you have never left this
"system of governance." You are always inside it, connected to others, and your
common body is alive. It is Malchut of the World of Infinity, which
really exists, although you do not feel how you belong to it.
Instead of feeling its main window,
you feel yourself as being in a completely different "window." You are in the
same place, but you perceive a different world, devoid of the common
interconnection. There are two windows: one is the natural, correct, true, and
deep one, and the other is virtual. Right now my screen is occupied by our
illusory world, but alongside it there is also an inner screen where we are all
in the state
of Infinity. This is what the Kabbalists talk about.
I aspire to it with my point in the
heart, wanting to go from the virtual screen to the real one, to the place
where I am connected to everyone. If my point really has awakened, I find
myself in the group.
I open up books that talk about this inner screen, and while reading them I
evoke Light from there that begins to advance me.
However, if a person does not care
about Kabbalistic books and unity in the group, if he does not feel the inner
need for this, then he does not have a point in the heart. He imagines all
sorts of things and looks for spirituality in India, or in different religions
and faiths, in meditation, in New Age, and so on. In contrast to this, a person
with a point in the heart is unable to leave the path any longer. He can "take
a break" due to various problems, but he will never exchange his point for
