I received many letters describing people’s impressions of the Congress, and I feel that they have to be shared with everyone:
…To be honest, based on my past experiences I expected to feel down after the Congress, but this time, something different happened. As I was driving to work the next morning, I suddenly understood that the world has changed after the Congress! This wasn’t just a feeling, but an epiphany. Suddenly, I clearly saw what the world will be like and how it will work – inversely, for bestowal rather than reception.
For a long time now I’ve been plagued by the question of how it will all work, because all the industries and society in general are based on reception. But all of a sudden I saw it clearly: I saw the smiles on people’s faces, I saw their drive to make each other feel good. All the people around me behaved just as we did at our Congress: their faces were glowing, the television and radio were broadcasting only good news, and the quality of bestowal was advertised in full swing. Everything around me was effusing Light and was enveloped in a cloud of joy. It feels as though the Congress has changed this world. Everything around us has changed, and all of us have changed as well.
…It wasn’t just a bunch of adults coming together to watch lessons and shake a leg, but there were families, wholesome social units, and every family member supported the others, infinitely multiplying all the goodness. There were three, even four-generation families in attendance. There were even babies, just a few weeks old.
So many different activities were organized for the children: a circus, games, songs, dancing, rooms for rest and nap-time, and separate playrooms for every age. The kids were constantly cared for and protected. For example, during the general songs and dancing, the kids were kept in a safe area where the kids also had space to dance together with their teachers. The older kids sat the younger kids on their shoulders. Everywhere you looked there were men and women on duty, making sure the kids didn’t get lost, burned or hurt in other ways.
…The food was delicious, and there was plenty of it. Between the meals there were many stands everywhere with hot beverages, lemon, and sweets, and all this was available around the clock. Every activity was concluded with songs and dancing that were so energetic, you couldn’t sit still even if you wanted to. There was so much energy and love from early morning till late night that it was impossible to feel tired.
Before and after the Congress people went on excursions to Kabbalistic sites, where people saw sights that take your breath away, enjoyed the beautiful weather and fresh air, and the company of thousands of people dear to them (there were dozens of buses).
My Comment: My wish to everyone is for the world to now start developing by means of the Light and joy instead of suffering!
