What Is The Future Of Cities?

Question: What future awaits cities?

Answer: In the future, thanks to the development of communication technologies, humanity will not concentrate in big cities but will spread out.

Many people will be able to work from home and all their consumables will be delivered. The home will be a bedroom, a study room, and in general, a place where a person spends most of his life. The concepts of the “city center” and “downtown” will disappear from the world, and our cities will assume a broad and balanced form.

Besides, I very much hope that as soon as humanity realizes that its universal relations with each other should be altruistic, cities will also be reformed according to this new way: everything will be for the benefit of a person so that a person will care for society and society will care for everyone. This will lead to very big changes in city structures.

The Archenemy Of Spiritual Development

Question: What thoughts or actions are most detrimental to our growth in Kabbalah? Which desire is our archenemy?

Answer: Laziness. Nothing else stands in our way. Only laziness.

You must bring yourself into such an environment that will constantly stimulate you, pull you forward, push you, provoke you. This is of utmost importance. Also, leave your egoism alone. It will disturb you, and rightly so. Do not agonize over your character or your qualities. You are created precisely that way in order to enter the upper world. The most important thing is to have more energy for work.

Question: Can you give an example of laziness in spiritual development?

Answer: Certainly. It is a lack of a person’s active involvement in the right environment, which can properly direct him, give him the right goal, and the energy to achieve it.

Question: What then is the corporeal laziness that prevents me to advance toward spirituality? Sometimes you tell us that the corporeal laziness is a good thing.

Answer: Regarding the corporeal world, laziness is a useful quality. The less hectic, the better. But once you have discovered the right path, you must pursue it with all your might to advance.

Kabbalistic Associations

Rabash, Social Writings, “According to What Is Explained Concerning ’Love Thy Friend as Thyself’”: And we see that in reality, there is love of friends among the secular, too. They, too, gather in various circles in order to have love of friends. What, then, is the difference between religious and secular?
The verse says (Psalms 1), “…nor sat in the seat of the scornful.”

There are countless numbers of associations in the world of men, women, mixed groups, children, etc., which are formed according to various interests and topics. However, these are all in order to somehow fulfill themselves and decorate their lives.

The associations Kabbalists gather together have the goal of exiting oneself, rising above oneself. Kabbalists seek to unite such as to attract a special force of nature that would elevate them above their original egoistic essence. While doing so, completely new relations arise between them, called “Arvut (“mutual guarantee“).

Their goal is to endeavor beyond our world, beyond our nature. Such people are very unusual in their associations, which are different from all other communities in humanity.

A Special Kind Of Egoism

Question: You are saying that our time is different from others in that low souls have descended into the world and selfishness has increased. What do you mean by that?

Answer: I mean that we have come to the state when we need to break into the upper world.

With our little egoism, aimed only at earning more or succeeding in something, we cannot achieve anything. In life you have some goals, preferences, values, and spend all your life swirling among them.

Earthly goals, however, are not egoism. Real egoism manifests itself only in relation to spiritual unity between people—where there are serious obstacles.

Question: Is there egoism toward the Creator?

Answer: Of course. It is the kind where I want to be instead of Him! The Creator created egoism equal to Him, and so the ego feels such an impulse.

Question: Does this mean that Kabbalists have a connection with the Creator and they want to use Him for their own sake?

Answer: If you are already in this system and you have a connection with the Creator, then spiritual egoism is called a Klipa, and these are completely different, special obstacles that need to be corrected.

World Virtual Congress

Our first virtual world kabbalah congress has come to a close and has left such an impression on students all over the world, that as a result, this congress marks the beginning of a new era of virtual congresses. The physical congress in Israel at the end of February is still going to take place, but in the meantime, there will be more opportunities for virtual congresses, which provide a new level of spiritual engagement and create a sense of importance of the congress among local groups – so every location has the opportunity to feel like they are exactly where they are meant to be and each friend can concentrate on creating a deeper spiritual connection.

World Virtual Congress 2018


The first virtual Congress will take place this year between the 19th and 21st of October. Students from all over the world will gather in local mirror conventions to participate in a brand new form of Kabbalah conventions, which is all about connecting locally! More information coming soon!

Why Isn’t There Progress In Relations Between People?

Question: Why is there progress in everything except human relations, and wars continue to this day?

Answer: There is progress in everything except human relations because we are becoming ever more egoistic and clever. On the other hand, however, we also understand that we cannot live the way we did in the past.

The world is becoming more global. Our dependence on each other dictates new forms of communication to us. We became consumers of a singular culture. Look at what is happening in the world today: some buy, others sell. The entire world became like one big market. No one can be separated from anyone else.

That is why we inevitably need to build positive relations, we cannot escape it. On the contrary, it is better for us to come to a state of full interdependence and then, hopefully, it will obligate our world to do something.

The Action Is The Reward

Question: If the whole world is inside me, then time is also inside me. Can you explain how to manage time inside oneself?

Answer: Imagine that there is no time. There is no next moment, as it is said: “Freeze the moment, it is magnificent!”

That is how you should act: there is no time, only a moment of my utmost adhesion with the Creator. Time is a psychological phenomenon. In Kabbalah, time is the frequency of change of spiritual states, not the ticking of the clock. The faster the states change, the faster time passes.

Question: So, if I do something and expect that a month or a year later I will get paid, is the expectation itself called time? But if I receive the payment right away, at the time of the action, then time seems to disappear?

Answer: When the reward occurs at the time of the action, meaning that the action is the reward, then there is no time. That is the magnificent moment.

Question: It follows that this moment is the best one in the life of the Kabbalist? He never thinks of the future?

Answer: The Kabbalist lives in both states simultaneously: in his personal state as well as in the collective one. He has to be concerned about the general correction of the world. For him, an action directed at the correction of the world is the reward. If the Creator gives him this opportunity, by doing so He is rewarding him.

Which World Is Real?

Question: Is it possible that the spiritual world exists only in Kabbalists’ imagination? What is the guarantee that it is real?

Answer: Nobody can promise you and give guarantees that the spiritual world exists more realistically than our world.

However, the fact that our world is not real has already been revealed by Kabbalists. They feel this by being above our illusory world, and they understand that this world is created in such a way on purpose, so that we would push ourselves away from it and exit into the real world.

The upper spiritual world is real because we attain the Creator in it, the only driving force, “There is none else besides Him.” By revealing in the spiritual world the force that governs everything, we determine that it really exists.
