What Kind Of Life Are We Preparing For Our Grandchildren?

Laitman_001_01Question: People today enjoy an affluent life, and the economy is based on this. A person sets his corporeal development as a goal. He dreams of buying a new car and a new house.

Will a person receive pleasure not from material acquisitions, but from social ties when he reaches the new level of human development?

Answer: A person receives pleasure from attaining the upper force.

A consumerist society will come to a complete dead end, and when despair is felt from this, we will have to explain that there is a solution, but it is a new education and teaching for everyone.

Baal HaSulam said that the major mistake of the Russian revolutionists at the beginning of the last century was that they didn’t act for the Creator’s sake.

This is actually what stood in their way of building the right state.

They didn’t take into account the general system that requires our unity in order to attain an upper spiritual level. They did not set a sublime goal for themselves that would provide a solution for corporeal life and for attainting eternal existence.

There is no solution in our corporeal life. We can only close our eyes and ignore the fact that we are doomed to die as if we didn’t worry about what the future brings. However, it is clear to everyone that man is not eternal.

All of society’s current problems stem from the fact that people have no answer for the meaning of life and what we are living for. This is the reason that terrorist organizations and religious wars are growing stronger, thus bringing the world to the brink of a new world war.

Where does all that stem from, while there is such material affluence in the modern world? The reason is that people don’t understand what they are living for, and so there is such confusion in the world.

However, there is a solution, and the wisdom of Kabbalah offers it to us. It isn’t about the simple correction of the economy in order to provide everyone the products they desire, but actually it gives a person much more.

The economy is only meant for providing what we need in order to exist, but the main goal is to ascend to a higher level.

I don’t want my children to live the same life I live, to grow old and die like me, and for my grandchildren and the future generations to have the same fate too. I want to give them more than this mortal existence!
