Apparently, we should get used to these headlines, as we’ll be seeing more and more of them, coming from all directions. Only then we will understand that there are no direct methods that can stop or even delay this downfall.
The only thing we need to do is balance ourselves with nature. Some say that we need to restore this balance; however the problem is that it had never existed in the first place. While our egoism was still small, this lack of balance wasn’t that dangerous. And even if we wanted to, we could never compensate for it, as we didn’t have any means to do so.
But today, at the final phase of human development, our egoism causes us the “Plagues of Egypt,” forcing us to exit “Egypt” (our egoism), as was once done by Pharaoh (the ancient Egyptian ruler) himself. It says that it was precisely Pharaoh who brought the people of Israel closer to the Creator by his plagues; otherwise, they would have remained in Egypt forever.
The only problem is that Moses isn’t anywhere to be seen. We would follow Moses, who would show us the way, even though we wouldn’t love him for leading us out of a flourishing nation into the desert… However, I think that we cannot wait for him – we need to go forward on our own.
In other words, life will force us to do this anyway, but it’s best to prevent the “Plagues of Egypt,” by realizing the inevitability of transition to another state – a society of bestowal and love. Just by starting to think in this direction – no matter how repulsive that is to our nature – we attract the Upper Light upon ourselves, which will correct us and show us just how possible and beautiful it really is!
