Dr. Michael Laitman To Change the World – Change Man

For the purpose of people’s unity, what are the proven methods throughout history?

The wisdom of Kabbalah is a time-tested method of unity, which was first implemented to unite people above their differences and disputes in the time of ancient Babylon, some 4,000 years ago.

It acts on the premise that we people are by nature in a broken and divided state, and when we start bringing ourselves together in order to connect, we discover the impossibility of connecting positively without the guidance of a method.

The reason we cannot connect positively is because we are egoistic by nature, instinctively prioritizing self-benefit over benefiting others, and the latter tendency needs to be higher in priority if we are to positively connect.

The wisdom of Kabbalah is a method that explains first and foremost not to move in a direction that opposes another person’s opinion, but how to make a sandwich, so to speak, of forces of separation (our egoistic nature) and forces of connection, which we draw through study. It is written about such a sandwich that “Love will cover all crimes.” That is, we understand that due to our egoistic nature, we are divided, that we endlessly criticize each other, and feel varying degrees of rejection to one another, from indifference to hatred. However, we pay no attention to this natural rejection we feel toward each other.

Instead, the wisdom of Kabbalah provides a method for how to concentrate ourselves on uniting above the ego. All of our differences remain, and we focus on connecting positively to each other above the differences. We maintain the differences and build a second level upon them.

Moreover, the wisdom of Kabbalah states that humanity is going to reach a level where everyone will unite above their divisions, however for the time being, only a small critical mass of people will be drawn to such a wisdom in order to implement unity above their differences. Through this critical mass realizing this method on themselves, their unity will start acting throughout humanity. In other words, the current period involves a group of people applying the method of unity on themselves similar to how a small group of scientists perform several experiments in a lab with the goal of discovering a new technology to improve human life in a certain way. Once they discover it, then it becomes patented and released on a mass scale, and humanity receives the ability to use it with a few simple instructions.
