Attaining the Worlds Beyond

By: Rav Michael Laitman

In the words of Michael Laitman, "It is beyond human comprehension to understand the essence of such spiritual qualities as total altruism and love. This is for the simple reason that human beings cannot comprehend how such feelings can exist at all, as everyone seemingly requires an incentive to perform any act; without some personal gain, people are not prepared to extend themselves. That is why a quality such as altruism can only be imparted to a person from Above, an...

It is beyond human comprehension to understand the essence of such spiritual qualities as total altruism and love. Even the existence of such feelings is beyond our comprehension; we seem to require an incentive to perform any act that does not promise us some form of personal gain. That is why a quality such as altruism can only be imparted to us from Above, and only those of us who have experienced it can understand it. Rabbi Michael Laitman ...

Leopardi and Schopenhauer : an English translation of "Leonardi e ...

By: Francesco De Sanctis; Thomas Haskell Simpson

possibly the first English translation of this interesting work by great literary critic Francesco De Sanctis, one of the fathers of the Italian national independence movement, later the young nation's Minister of Public Instruction, and author of a crucial history of Italian literature.

"...Hegel is the greatest sinner, because the public’s head can't make room for intellectual intuition. With his dialectical process, Hegel gave an appearance of harmony to this philosophical monstrosity. He was its designer and architect, making the original sin durable. So Schopenhauer tore him to pieces. Charlatan, insipid, stupid, nauseating, an ignoramus whose shamelessness was touted as wisdom by cowardly followers; the true author of our century’s intellectua...

From an intimate perspective, the pond leads us to discover h...

"Let that which is unknown become known. " John Papa Ii (1959) Let us not allow the broken walls of the loko ia (fishponds) to separate us from that which was known and practiced in the past. The foundations of the walls are still evident, as are the wisdom and knowledge of our kupuna. The reflections of the sun, moon, and stars upon our waters are as old as time. Let these be beacons of light to guide our haumana (students) to these ponds of knowledge. Let us help ...

ఆకాశానికి నిచ్చెన వేయ ప్రయత్నించటం ఎంతటి అవివేకమో అందరికీ సుగ్రాహ్యమే. అయినా అప్పుడప్పుడు మనమంతా ఆలా ప్రయత్నిస్తూనే వుంటాము. అది ఎంతో హాస్యాస్పదమయినా ఆ ఆలోచనలో వుండే మకరందాన్ని మనమంతా కాంక్షిస్తాము. ఎందుకంటేఆ ఆలోచన ఆహ్లాదకరమయినప్పుడు దానిని బలవంతంగా, ప్రయత్నపూర్వకంగా ఎందుకు బహిష్కరించాలి? అసంభవమయిన ఆలోచనలతో తెచ్చుకొన్న చిరునవ్వు, నిజమైన నిష్కల్మషమైన కన్నీరు కన్నా వున్నతమైనవంటే నేను అంగీకరించను. ఎందుకంటే ఆత్మవంచనకన్నా ఆత్మహత్య ఉన్నతమైనది. జీవితంలోని అనివార్యమైన దుఃఖాన్ని,...

Una tragedia, sin duda. Muchos, incluso yo, habíamos tenido al menos una perdida irreparable. Al señor Cohen aquell...
