What Is the Connection Between the Wisdom of Connection and the Wisdom of Kabbalah?

What Is the Connection Between the Wisdom of Connection and the Wisdom of Kabbalah?

Question: Dr. Laitman, in a talk about the ONE Convention that you had with convention organizers—which is already on the convention preparation page—that we have to learn how to scrutinize the results of our dissemination. What does that mean? How do we do that?

In other words, many friends, the more veteran friends, are working in education and dissemination with the broad public. They’re asking: What’s the best way to bring all these impressions as a result of the integration with the broad public to the ONE Convention? Should we write them down? You had said that it’s very important to bring these impressions.

Dr. Michael Laitman: We need to understand that we are on borrowed time. We are working on Nature’s command, or call it “God’s command” or a “command of the Upper Force.” Judging by the situation in the world, we have to make the world know what is the right kind of life. What is the correction method? What is the remedy that will cure all of our troubles, which are increasing?

Therefore, if we have the wisdom of connection as a means of dissemination to the rest of the world, and we will also talk about during the ONE Convention, and we will want to exchange experiences and impressions of what we do; every big group that is doing it should go up on stage and tell us briefly what they are doing. Then we’ll get impressions. We’ll know what they are doing. It will inspire us. It will give us direction. We’ll hear about what they’re doing, how they’re doing it, etc. for everyone. It will give us a kind of awakening, what to do in our group, for example, how to work, what kind of materials we can take from them. Maybe they did something that we need, so why build something that already is built?

The convention is also proper study of the wisdom of Kabbalah and the wisdom of connection, and also general participation of how we learn it and how we teach it, but most of all we have this integral wisdom—the wisdom of Kabbalah and of connection—which is actually one and the same, i.e. how to turn a broken vessel into a complete vessel. That’s all. That’s what we’re talking about. The more the Kli [vessel] is completed, we will feel in it Nefesh, Ruach, Neshama, Haya, Yechida—the feeling of this general, collective Kli.

That is what we’re talking about—either on behalf of the wisdom of Kabbalah, the wisdom of connection, whatever is more convenient for a person depending on where the person is at. What is important for us is not to have a contradiction between those two parts, because they are the same. When you teach a child calculus in first or second grade, does it contradict mathematics that you study at university? One is the initial part of the same science, and one is the advanced part. It’s the same here.

Where do we discover the wisdom of Kabbalah? Within the wisdom of connection, to the extent that we connect. How did Kabbalists attain the wisdom of Kabbalah? They started coming out of themselves through the light that reforms, connecting to others, and all of a sudden they discovered that in their connection with others they found a new space, a new place, a new desire. In that desire, called the desire to bestow, which exists between them and others, they began to discover the new, spiritual world. That is what they wrote about, and that is the wisdom of Kabbalah.

This Q&A is based on the Special Q&A Session with Dr. Michael Laitman in Preparation for the ONE Convention, which took place on Sunday, June 16. Watch the whole video & stay up-to-date with ONE Convention preparation materials here »
