Answer: We have to feel the spiritual worlds because otherwise we will not know how to behave in this world in a correct way, what to do with ourselves, how to relate to others, why we exist, which forces govern us, where our free choice is, and where we don’t have free choice.
We need to understand in what we are totally dependent on the forces of nature and where we can act independently and how to do it: or by chance, when suddenly we feel like it, or by knowing the correct goal of progress to do something good, good for ourselves and for others.
We need to recognize and attain the system that we live in; otherwise, we act like blind kittens. But kittens at least have a mother, and we are in the rough hands of the concealed force of nature. There is a network of forces that we are imprisoned in it and we don’t know what strings are pulling us.
Evolution, the continuous development of nature, is conducted according to a definite law. But from a certain point onward, this development requires the proper wise involvement of man. And if a person is not ready to properly integrate into this formula of development, then it acts against him compelling him more and more to explore the system of development.
We see, in spite of everything, that we have reached a point where everything is falling apart and the world we built is terrible. We are destroying nature, the future is unknown, tomorrow is unclear, and we begin to discover ourselves, our egoism, as the source of all the problems.
And here the question that arises is not about the need to believe in spiritual worlds, but how to be rescued, how to make sure that we will not be involved in any problems. Look at what is happening in the whole world: in Russia, in America, in Europe, in the Middle East, in the Far East, in Latin America, and in Africa—everyone is suffering. There is no one on earth that can say that he enjoys happiness and serenity.
We have gotten ourselves into a dead end. Therefore, this reveals the need to understand what the source of all our problems is, and along with that the wisdom of Kabbalah is revealed, which says: “ I will tell you about everything and will give you a possibility to steer in the correct way.”
We live in a special time: on one hand, it is very scary, bad, evil, and unpredictable, and on the other hand, we can reveal the whole system of leadership of our world and start to work in it.
Therefore, we should enjoy this combination of circumstances: On one hand, it compels us to reveal the system of control called the upper world, and on the other hand, we have the opportunity to be saved.
