Question: As a result of the series of earthquakes in southwestern Japan, close to 40 people were killed and more than 2,000 were injured. The same thing also happened in Ecuador; there the number killed reached 233 people, and more than 1,500 injured.
Why in these peaceful and harmless nations do terrible tragedies like these occur?
Answer: It is very difficult to explain this because everything depends on the general distribution of humanity on the surface of the Earth. Why does a disaster like this suddenly happen specifically to these people and not others? What is the connection to Ecuador?
If we seek a reason for what is happening, soon everyone will say and write that the Jews are to blame for all the disasters. For every problem that appears in the world they will only blame the Jews. Through their incorrect behavior, the lack of union among them, such behavior is aroused both in nature and in the nations of the world.
Nature begins to become unbalanced, which is expressed in climate change, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and additional disasters. We arouse the lack of balance in nature and human society in all its forms. So we are to blame for everything!
Question: But the direct connection is not visible to the eye and a person doesn’t feel guilty. So why does the upper force behave with us like that?
Answer: To see a direct connection, you must reveal the upper system of management. Otherwise it is impossible because you would then behave because you were coerced, trying to avoid blows. But it is up to you to behave differently; it is up to you to carry things out independently, without the goading of the main law of nature, the Creator, the law of unity between all of its parts.
This is in your hands. It is up to you to move toward this by yourself, through wanting to elevate yourself to the level of Adam (Man) and not remain on the level of a “beast.”
Question: And for this purpose thousands of people are killed?
Answer: Billions of people innocent of crime! Imagine what kind of guilt rests on your shoulders.
There is nothing else. Read what is written in the books of Kabbalah. All the great representatives of our people have talked about this, beginning from Abraham and on.
We are responsible for all the problems of the world and also for all of its happiness, if we behave appropriately.
I believe that it is up to us to think seriously about what is happening and about what the wisdom of Kabbalah says. Otherwise, we will be taught through even more terrible bloody methods than we witnessed 70-80 years ago.
