Dr. Michael Laitman: People will have to reveal the science of Kabbalah – Nature’s program and the method of correction. It will either be forced on us by Nature through the path of immense and unfathomable suffering, or we can accept it from Kabbalists who are now revealing it to the world.
Dr. Michael Laitman: The cause of all conflicts is our nature: egoism, the desire to fulfill ourselves at the expense of others. Until we correct it, we will fight for any reason, up to the point of causeless mutual destruction because the natural psychological need to conflict motivates us to action.
It is only left to head towards mutual destruction or to correction of our nature to the opposite so that connection, unity, and mutual concern become our psychological need. This transformation can be done only by the Upper Light.
Step One – Grab the Power of Kabbalah Like a Rope Thrown to a Drowning Person
There are two parts to Kabbalah: revealed and hidden. Both constitute the Creator’s thoughts. Kabbalah is like a rope thrown from above to a drowning person in a sea of egoism. By observing spiritual laws, a person prepares for the second, main stage when the one who observes and the one who obliges spiritually merge.
Revealed! The Steps on the Spiritual Ladder and What You Will See on the Climb
Those who observe spiritual rules go through five levels: Nefesh, Ruach, Neshama, Haya, andYechida. Each level consists of five sub-levels, which are then divided into five additional sub-levels. In all, the ladder of spiritual ascent, or closeness to the Creator, consists of 125 steps. The five main steps of this ladder are called “worlds.” Their sub-levels are called Partzufim, which consist of Sefirot.
All that exists in a certain spiritual world perceives the objects in that world and below it. However, they cannot even imagine or feel anything from a higher world. Therefore, one who reaches one of the 125 levels attains all the souls that exist there from the past, present, and future generations and remains there with them.
How Through Kabbalah You Can Gain Sight of Incredible Levels of Attainment
We, who exist only in our world, are unable to imagine or feel anything existing at other levels or other worlds, including those that populate them.
Kabbalists that reach a certain level on their path to the Creator can describe that level with expressions that only people who attained it can understand. Those who have not attained the described level can be confused by such descriptions and be led away from the correct understanding.
The Bad News Is – Transformation Is Beyond Your Power; The Good News Is – There Is Another Way
By following the Creator’s will, feelings, and thoughts, we become like Him. In the same way that the Creator acts only for the sake of His created beings, we have to wish well for our fellow beings and to be good to them all.
However, is it possible for us to do good to others with absolute selflessness?
After all, the Creator created us as absolute egoists, possessing only the will to enjoy. It is impossible for us to transform our nature. Even if we could always be good to each other, we would consciously or subconsciously try to derive some benefit for ourselves. Unless we see some self-profit, we are unable to make even the slightest movement for the sake of another.
Why You Should Learn How to Draw the Light Upon Yourself through Kabbalah
People are powerless to change their nature of absolute egoism, let alone transform it into something completely opposite. We are unable to be good without receiving honor, rest, fame, health, or money in return.
This is why the method of observing the spiritual laws through Kabbalah was given to humanity. Using the method of Kabbalah, we can draw the light upon ourselves that transforms our nature. There is no other means by which our nature can be changed.
To Envision Your Transformation, Take Example from Nature
The body and its organs make a single whole and constantly exchange sensations and information. For example, if the body feels that one of its parts can improve the general condition of the whole body, that particular part immediately feels it and fulfills this will. In case some body part suffers, the whole body instantly knows about it and tries to improve the situation.
