Good Deeds Day Is Missing One Component

The Day of Good Deeds Is Missing One ComponentA notice in Ynet, a popular Israeli online magazine: Good Deeds Day

“On Tuesday, June 17 2008, we invite you to stop for a moment in the flow of life and take part in an Israeli community effort. You can volunteer in your area together with you friends and colleagues in a way that suits you. Each one of you can take part in the day when tens of thousands of Israelis will open their hearts to one another, and we will all feel what mutual responsibility toward each other is. What do you think?”

My Response: This is a wonderful initiative, but in order to produce results, it needs to be connected to the Governing Force, the Creator. Even without mentioning Him, we must explain to people that everyone is interconnected and dependent on everyone else. The whole world exists according to the rule of “love thy neighbor,” and only humans break this rule with our egoism, which is why we suffer.

We can ascend to an existence of mutual responsibility and love for all eternity, and not just for one day. With this aim, we should continue explaining how to achieve harmony with nature, which operates by the principle of interconnection, and we are willing to work together with you in this endeavor. However, without such an explanation together with your efforts, they will be empty. There have been many initiatives like yours, and they all turned into nothing more than a national party.

  1. That is a wonderful Response! I agree 100% ! Not only Israel but the whole World  needs to connect seriously! And permanently! Rav Michael Laitman speaks always  words of Wisdom. There has to be a real deep change in the hearts of people! Only the Wisdom of Kabbalah and connecting with the Creator,”the Governing Force” can real change take place in the hearts of peoples. The Truth has been revealed in our times and it is offered freely! If people mean really to open their hearts to each other and interconnect let them become students of Kabbalah. Thank you Rav Michael for your wise Response. I am very impressed once more for your genuine concern for real and permanent change in the hearts not only of the people of Israel but the peoples of the whole World.
