The Daily Page 5th Tishrei, 5771

The Daily Page is a collection of excerpts taken from the daily Kabbalah lesson with Dr. Michael Laitman and Bnei Baruch.

I Came, But No One Was There!

If people are not united with one another, then the Creator does not see them. It’s as if they don’t exist, even if it is all of humanity.

The Creator does not see each person individually, separate from others. He sees only the connections among people, and He considers only the quantity and strength of these connections. That is why the Creator said “I came, but no one was there!”

The same thing is true inside us. Our decisions do not arise inside the actual neurons of the brain, but rather, upon the connections between the neurons-in the synapses, the place where two neurons make contact.

It is precisely these contacts, connections, and chains of connections in our brain that constitute the basis of our thinking, the “human being” in us. That is, a person’s essence is not present in the actual elements of his system, but in the connections between the elements.

However, the outcome of these connections is found elsewhere. It is not present in the actual matter, but towers above it. It lies on a different, higher level of reality.

Connecting The Worlds

How can we bridge the spiritual and corporeal worlds and connect the two together?

Each person has to arrange himself in corporeality according to the demands that Kabbalists make: to be married, employed, and arranged in the general framework of this world. This is a necessity, a law that cannot be broken. “Without sustenance there’s no Torah.” When my corporeality is arranged and I come to the study, this corporeal, beastlike world does not exist for me. During the study I am connected with my friends in order to reveal the Creator.

If I try to reach equivalence of form in this world with the spiritual world then both of these worlds connect.

Keep Smiling ~ Self-Wealth, 5th Tishrei, 5771

Motivational Quotes


Whatever has happened until now doesn’t really matter. Whatever will yet happen in the future also doesn’t matter. Only one thing counts: what we say, do and think now.

Our yesterday is a background against which we conduct ourselves today. This background consists of successes and failures, excitements and disappointments. All this the Creator creates as our springboard — a springboard to launch us towards happiness and success. Specifically, the past we lived through and experienced, is what allows our accomplishment and achievement to be the greater. Thus, there’s no reason to worry over it.

The future is also something that shouldn’t trouble us. What we do now decides what we deserve to receive — and what we deserve to receive, we will receive. Good, powerful acts lead to good, powerful results. Poor, weak acts lead to poor, weak results. We simply need to DO the best we can right now, BE the best we can right now — and KNOW that this will lead to our ultimate satisfaction.

Baal Shem Tov, 5th Tishrei, 5771

Daily Teachings of the Baal Shem Tov

The Baal Shem Tov taught: Prophecy cannot exist outside of the Land of Israel–except in a place of water. Thus, Yechezkel HaNavi spoke words of prophecy while standing in the River Khebar, even though he was not in the Land of Israel.
(Degel Machaneh Ephraim, Bo)
