Build Your Tomorrow with the Ultimate Creative Force

Build Your Tomorrow with the Ultimate Creative Force

The goal of Kabbalah is for every person to discover life’s creative force, obtain it, and reap all the benefits this discovery implies.

Development occurs by virtue of the “electric” force that circulates in the system. When I connect into it with the two forces I have, the egoistic and altruistic ones, its force starts circulating through me as well. Kabbalah talks about simple laws that we need to observe in the group. Kabbalists explain what laws are to be followed in order for us to become an active part of a greater whole. Then the group will become a “construction area” for me, where we work, build, create, and shape the future world, the upper world, and humanity of tomorrow. We must structure it as a mini-model of an integral, immense reality and strive to perform according to the ground laws of creation pertaining to our egoism and the positive creative force.

VaYetze (And Jacob Went Out) Parsha – Weekly Torah Portion

VaYetze

Genesis, 28:10-32:3
This Week’s Torah Portion | December 4 – December 10, 2016 – 4 Kislev -10 Kislev, 5777

In A Nutshell

The portion, VaYetze (And Jacob Went Out), begins with Jacob leaving Beer Sheba and heading for Haran. He stops for the night and in his dream he sees a ladder “set up on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven; and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it” (Genesis, 28:12). The Creator appears before him and promises him that the earth on which he is lying will be his, that he will have many sons, and that He will watch over him. The next morning, Jacob sets up a monument in that place and calls it, Beit El (House of God).

Jacob comes to a well near Haran, where he meets Rachel and her father, Laban the Aramean, who offers him to work for him for seven years in return for permission to marry Rachel. At the end of the seven years Laban deceives Jacob and gives him Leah instead. He compels Jacob to work for him seven more years, after which he gives him Rachel and Jacob marries her.

Leah has four sons from Jacob, while Rachel is barren. Rachel gives to Jacob her maidens, who give birth to four more of his sons. Leah delivers two more sons, until finally Rachel conceives and gives birth to Joseph.

Jacob asks Laban to pay for his work. Laban gives him some of the flock, although they had a different agreement. Jacob shows the flock the troughs, and they conceive and deliver. Some of the lambs are born striped, some are speckled, and some are spotted.

Jacob feels that Laban is not treating him as before. At the same time, an angel appears before Jacob and tells him to return to the land of Israel. He leaves without notifying Laban, and Rachel steals the idols. Laban chases them in search of the idols, catches up with Jacob on Mount Gilead, and rebukes him for fleeing and stealing the idols.

Finally, they make a covenant on the mountain. Jacob is preparing to enter the land of Israel, he sees angels accompanying him, and he calls the place, Mahanaim (two camps).

 Commentary by Dr. Michael Laitman

Kabbalah always interprets stories as stages in a person’s inner growth, according to man’s purpose in this world—to discover the Creator, to achieve His degree, meaning to achieve Dvekut (adhesion).

Thus far, all the portions related to man’s initial point, Abraham, which is scrutinized through study, the group, connection with the teacher, and the books of Kabbalah. Subsequently, a person discovers the next stage, Isaac, followed by Ishmael, and then by Esau.

The portion, VaYetze (And Jacob Went Out), speaks of Jacob, who is the middle line. Abraham is the right line, and Isaac is the left line. Jacob is special in that the middle line contains all the qualities, the good, as well as the bad. In the middle line, the evil inclination and the good inclination merge in order to achieve the degree of the Creator, our goal.

The work in the middle line is done entirely in faith above reason, in bestowal, above the ego. This is the quality of Jacob in a person, and this is how it develops. Jacob leaves Beer Sheba, meaning a certain place, an inner state, and heads for Haran, which is another stage along the way. On the way there he must shift from state to state through the day and the night. In other words, Jacob experiences internal, spiritual ascents and descents.

Your Future Language Will Need No Words

Your Future Language Will Need No Words

The higher force doesn’t listen to words, but only responds to what is in our heart.

Mutual bestowal doesn’t require a language or any form of communication. Why do we need words if we are one body? Does my hand talk to my leg? The information simply flows between them. This is also how we will convey information to each other. A language is created only because of the lack of a real inner connection between us. This is why we need words. The better the inner connection between us, the less we need words. There will be one language once again at the end of correction. It will be the language of bestowal. We will not speak, we will feel.

How to Feel Complete and Whole in a Shattered World

How to Feel Complete and Whole in a Shattered World

When we become the same single whole as Nature, we will discover that all of its parts were always connected.

If we unite rather than disconnect, we get closer to the single bestowing upper force that created the entire universe, and the closer we get to it, the more we can enjoy it. Happiness from unity is a revelation of the force that governs all of nature. After all, the whole of nature came from a single point of the Big Bang.

  

Living The High Life

living-the-high-life21

“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.”? C.S. Lewis

For the most part, human beings have never looked for meaning beyond the framework of material life. Frankly, there’s never been a need until now. Humanity has always fulfilled itself with its natural passions for food, sex, and family, and with more “civilized” things like wealth, honor, control, and knowledge.

Of course, there have always been rare individuals who’ve looked for meaning beyond the mundane but, for the most part, humanity has been satisfied with worldly pursuits.

Today, things are different. People aren’t content with what life has to offer; they want to know why they’re alive, and why it’s worth living. For thousands of years, people have found ways of answering life’s questions, but now they bluntly ask: why do we need this life?

The fact that humanity is asking this question is not the problem. The problem is that it can’t find an answer. Now the world is in a crisis. Families are falling apart. Science has reached a dead-end. Depression is on the rise, and people consume themselves with drugs and alcohol just to escape the void that’s appearing in their lives.

The challenge that this generation is facing is in finding a solution to the uncertainty that looms in front of it. The world has always had something to offer, but our egos have outgrown it. Now, nature is pushing humanity to develop.

However, the next rung in human evolution is unknown because, like a stone that doesn’t appreciate the sound of music, humanity doesn’t have the senses to recognize the higher laws that govern life.

Luckily nature has provided the world with a tool that can help it realize its potential—it’s called the wisdom of Kabbalah. This science is nearly 6000 years old, but it’s more relevant than ever. In fact, it was developed specifically for this generation.

Kabbalah is practical. It’s not philosophy or religion. A person doesn’t have to be smart to study it or believe in anything. All that’s needed is for people to start studying it because it describes the foundation of the world in which we live.

The study itself elevates a person. By learning about the world that Kabbalah describes, a person gradually comes closer to it, revealing immense pleasure and complete fulfillment because a person discovers the source of life itself. When humanity connects to its source it will know what to do, and where it’s going. It will understand its purpose in this world, and attain the feeling of true life.
