A Rhetorical Question: “Whose Fault Is It?”

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: What has to happen so that the all of humanity will start embracing the method of correction?

Answer: Most people don’t yet understand where all the problems are coming from. It’s not about the government, unemployment, political and economic manipulations, or “backroom” intrigues. America’s pressure and cheap labor in China are merely the external side of the game, but people think that somebody in this world still has power over them, as though political leaders like Ahmadinejad, Obama, or Merkel can indeed determine anything.

What is the point in going into the streets to loudly claim something if it’s not working anyway? How many governments need to change to show us some use? We have to understand once and for all that changes may come only from Above, by the power of nature, and not by some ruler’s will. He is just the same as his people. What does he know? What can he possibly do in the global world where the well-being of every country depends on all the rest?

There is simple logic in it. There are more than 250 countries in the world. What can one prime minister do with a given country under the conditions of total interdependence? What options do they have in the common market? The global economy is governed by cruel laws, and it’s impossible to take a step to the right or left since everyone is tied to their own zone of influence. Is each nation’s leader entitled to a magic wand along with his office?

People hope for a change of power when, in fact, it’s only going to get worse, not because of certain leaders, but because they are looking in the wrong direction. People are yet to understand who is really in charge of the situation. If we don’t spread the wisdom of Kabbalah in the world, they will never know, while they will feel that it’s our fault. They are not aware of Kabbalah which we hide in our hands, but they will be pointing fingers only at us.

Then, as the era of Gog and Magog is described, the entire world will be making claims of us. First, there will be wars between the nations followed by their turning against Israel. It’s only natural since they are in conflict and have no idea what to do about it.

They will blame others until they will start to understand that everyone is in danger, everybody is desperate, but there is no salvation in anything. Where does this misfortune come from? Whose fault is it? No, it isn’t Obama’s, Ahmadinejad’s, Merkel’s or Sarcozy’s. They are not to blame; it’s only the Jews. How so? That’s how they feel.

It is a natural reaction of an anti-Semite: “It’s all your fault!” Frankly, are they that wrong? No, they aren’t. That is how it’s going to be if we don’t spread the method of correction at the right time and show the willingness to share it with the world.

We must act ahead of all their claims and be ready to respond to the world’s desire. We must apply the medicine before the illness becomes acute. Mind you, it’s not because we fear them, but because such is the will of the Creator who doesn’t want to see any people suffer.
From the 4th part of the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 5/30/2011, “The Peace”

  1. I agree. And, I think it’s interesting how there is an overall wanting to blame things outside of ourselves for how things are going bad. If we aren’t blaming another country, then it is our leaders, if it isn’t our leaders then it is the guy down the street or our spouses. Anyone but ourselves. When we have to look at ourselves and see that we need to change. I see people who find it hard to change themselves. Or accept that some other idea or person is right, then they get angry and hateful at that person. It’s when they finally start to love that person rather than hate that they feel better. Otherwise, they don’t and it goes on and on and on.
