How Can I Explain “Connection Between Souls” and “Taking Others Into Consideration” To Others? They’d Think I’ve Gone Crazy!

Dr. Michael Laitman

Question by a Student: I’m at a dead end, because [as one who studies Kabbalah] I can’t talk to others about the “connection between souls,” because they’d think I’m crazy. Even in the situation we’re in today, if I’d talk to another person about “taking others into consideration,” they’d continue calling me abnormal…

Answer by Dr. Michael Laitman: No, explain it to them consistently: Our problem, in every unsuccessful area of our lives, is in the connection between us. Whether it’s in finance, banking, security, in everything there is in the world…

The world lacks nothing. You know what, there are studies showing that, in terms of what each nation contains, humanity doesn’t have to suffer, and we can live a good life, but the problem is in the connection between us. We’re incapable of correcting it, but what can we do? Whether we like it or not, Nature necessitates us.

You have to bring them all kinds of scientific proofs of how Nature necessitates us to be in connection with one another – from evolution, genetics, biology, it doesn’t matter… there are plenty of articles like that, a lot of research has been done about it.

By doing so, you stand the person before the fact: “Look! That’s humanity’s path, and that’s what we need to reach – balance with Nature, everyone connected together. Nature is pressuring us, we have no choice. If you want to go through it with beatings, wars and plagues, then go for it – but there’s another possibility.”

The problem is that we escape from it because we can’t make it by ourselves. There is a way… and you explain a little about the wisdom of Kabbalah. It doesn’t matter whether or not he agrees with that, rejects it, or whether it goes in one ear and out the other. It’s already a connection. Disagreement is also connection. He is incorporated into it, and it starts working. That spark already operates within him. It’s not up to you what happens after that, you can only do what you know, try for the best, and that’s all.

Question by a Student: I want to ask you something about that, because if we don’t explain to a person “What are souls?” and that whole explanation… so what am I actually doing then? Do I explain nature to him, and about the reality that’s brought him to the state he’s in today, and then say “You know what, get yourself a plumber to fix your problem”? By doing that you’re not going to a deeper level, you’re telling him, “Go fix your problem among yourselves.” He understands…

Dr. Laitman: Not at their level, you…

Student: That’s not…

Dr. Laitman: I’m sorry that you didn’t listen – you’re listening to yourself. I explain to him that there’s a solution in the wisdom of Kabbalah, and that solution comes to us from a higher world, that all the forces descend from there and act in our world. I don’t get too deep, but I explain that whole system to him, I explain it to everyone – that it’s clear how our world is incidental, how we don’t know what’s going to happen in the next moment. Why don’t we know? It’s because half of our reality is closed off, and our activities come from there into our world. And if we enter into and connect with that, so then we’ll operate our world better. How can we do that? We can do it through the wisdom of Kabbalah. That’s what I explain to him. At the end of it, I give him the wisdom of Kabbalah, not socialism.

We now have technologies that can see furthur than we have ever seen before specifically the hubble telescope. We still havent reached the end of the universe but already we have discovered 1000000000 of Galaxies containing 1000000000000000 of stars containing 100000000000000000000000000 of planet systems and yet you say God created all this for US humans? if the purpose is spiritual then why would we need so many of these galaxy’s why not just create earth?
