We’ll Pass The Machsom And The World Will Change!
the world change if we pass the Machsom at this Congress? Will it
happen immediately or gradually?
Laitman's Answer: Right now we are able to unite our desires
and awaken the Upper Light to such an extent that we will feel the Light. We
will then feel the spiritual reality, the connection between us through mutual
bestowal. I am not talking about love, total interconnection or "return due to
love" because this is the second phase of correction. For now we are connecting
on the first phase of correction just by ascending above our ego by the force
of the Light.
Light is like a magnet that raises us above our egoism, above the mountain of
hatred, Mount Sinai. We can ascend above egoism and enter the spiritual world
temporarily, for a certain amount of time, and then once again descend into the
ego and return into the material world. Alternatively, we can ascend and enter
it permanently, in which case from that state on we will begin the phases of
development in the "desert," where we ascend up the spiritual ladder. We will
then rise along 125 levels until the World of Infinity, the total correction of
egoism into bestowal and love.
us hope that we will attain at least a temporary revelation of the Creator.
However, if this doesn't happen, it means that we still lack the true desire
for it, that our desire is not great or precise enough yet in order to get rid
of egoism. In that case, it will happen next time when we accumulate sufficient
force and the exact desire to ascend above ourselves. The most important thing
is to be concerned about the connection between us and to reveal the Creator
inside this connection. This is the purpose of the existence of the worlds and
of man in this world.
quantitative and qualitative force is already sufficient for us to attain it at

Desire It And “Hear” It!
Question: How can I awaken fear of the
Creator inside me if I only see our material world?
Dr. Laitman's Answer: Once I've been in the group for
a long time, the time comes when I suddenly "hear" that I have to unite with my
friends in order to attain the spiritual world. Yet, I don't understand why and
for what because I still don't feel the connection between the following
- The Upper Goal, which I
don't feel or realize, but which I have to attain;
- The Upper Force, which I
have to attain and feel;
- My attitude to the friends;
- The state of unity with
friends which we have to attain.
There is a chain of inner
revelations of feeling that have to take place within me. After all, our entire
life is sensations. We are made of a matter called "the will to enjoy." This is
a desire that feels pleasure or suffering and nothing more than that.
Therefore, my entire attitude to
anything amounts to my sensation. It is either present or absent. If I don't
have this inner chain of feeling, the connection of how I will attain the goal
of creation from this moment on (through love for the Creator, worry about Him,
fear of Him, care for the group, and unity with friends as one man with one
heart), if I still lack the inner responses to this, the impressions and reactions,
then I still have more work to do on myself.
What should I do? The condition
for revealing the Creator is just like at Mount Sinai: having the desire to
unite as one man with one heart. Then He will become revealed to you in your
unified desire. Moreover, you only have to desire to unite, and the Creator
will carry out the unification. We have to try to acquire a desire for unity.
But how can I try to do this if I
don't want it? You can develop a desire through action. This is the meaning of
the verse, "We will do and we will hear!"
This is exactly why our false
world was created, where we exist in bodies. You can perform false physical
actions of bestowal to your friends and speak about unity with them without any
desire for it.
You don't have a desire for it?
That doesn't matter! You don't live just in the desire. You also exist in an
external shell called the physical body. So make physical actions of bestowal
to your friend, acting as if you love him instead of yourself.
That is why it is written, "Buy
yourself a friend." Bestow to him in all sorts of ways and you will feel how
your attitude to him changes. Why? Because you invested your energy and efforts
in him. You did not want it, but by acting this way you gained a special
attitude to him.
This is called "We will do."
Actions that you make without a desire bring you to "We will hear," to the
quality of bestowal. ("Hearing" is the quality of Bina.) Then you
already begin to hear the things the Torah speaks about. It is the instruction
manual on the path to the Light. (Torah comes from the words Ohr-Light,
Therefore, let's try to unite together
even if we don't have a desire for this. Let's ascend above our feelings and
then we will experience everything in a new way.
