Kabbalah Is The Science Of The World’s Correction

the-third-temple-and-the-coming-of-the-messiahA question I received: Two months ago, my Rabbi approached me regarding my speaking to the congregation about Kabbalah at our weekly services. We generally have 10 to 15 people at the services. We are a very small Reform Temple in Northeast Pennsylvania. Could you please give me some guidance on this issue?

My Answer: You should speak to them and tell them that Kabbalah is the science about the correction of the world. Today the world is discovering how incorrect it is, and this is why Kabbalah is being revealed to the world for the first time in history. Everything that was said about Kabbalah in the past was a lie, but nobody knew about this since the Kabbalists kept silent about it.

The first man who revealed this fact was Baal HaSulam. Before him, Chassidut talked about personal correction, but they said little and did it in a concealed form. Therefore, instead of performing the inner correction, people started to focus on the external actions and rituals.

Kabbalah was revealed in Ancient Babylon by Abraham in order to correct humanity. At that time, humanity recognized that it was united together in one place, but then the people separated and broke the connection. Today this connection is again being revealed on the global scale, and therefore, people will inevitably understand it – either through recognition or suffering. They will then use Kabbalah to correct mankind’s egoism.

Humanity And Nature Want The Same Thing – Unity

contactA question I received: What exactly will the new system of upbringing teach? Will people learn a simplified version of Kabbalah?

My Answer: Don’t call it Kabbalah, call it “bestowal.” The world’s problem is that people lack the right relationships. That’s why they can’t organize a system that will work in the new, modern conditions. And therefore, it is necessary to explain the meaning of the global system to people.

“To serve the creatures according to the Creator’s precepts” means to treat people according to the true laws of Nature. “The Creator’s precepts” are the true laws of Nature, and “serving the creatures” means creating a connection among the creatures that will follow the universal law of Nature. This should clear up any confusion.

That’s why the first thing Baal HaSulam says is that all of humanity must agree to perform this work. And why wouldn’t anyone agree to it – what can be bad about treating each other well? We will all prosper and develop, and in addition, this is not only best for us, but it is also the Creator’s (Nature’s) desire. Therefore, if we only move in this direction, He will meet us halfway. Thus, there is a likelihood of success from both sides: the people want this as they have no other choice, and Nature – the Creator – has established it as a firm law.

The Media Must Start Promoting Values And Relationships Of Kindness

new-movieIn the News (translated from RBC Daily.ru): The Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs is considering closing a reality TV show called “House-2.” The authorities finally recognized that Russia has a problem of low moral values, perpetuated by the TV channels and the entertainment businesses. Instead of showing immoral reality shows on the TV, the experts advise showing positive heroes and ethical behavior.

The Ministry of Internal Affairs has proposed a bill that will protect children from information that may be harmful to their health and development. The country’s shame and misfortune is that a police officer has better morals than the actors and producers.

The objective of human culture is to fight the instincts, so we will be human beings rather than animals. It is much more difficult to make interesting movies, to write books, and to create programs than to appeal to the animal in us and to make money by appealing to our base, instinctual desires.

Unfortunately, the television promotes primitive values and behavior. It does not simply clog up our brains and hinder our development, but it is outright dangerous.

My Comment: Kabbalah says that the solution to all of humanity’s problems lies in correctly educating a human being with the help of the right environment. People are the only thing in the world that has to be corrected. All the world’s problems come from incorrect human behavior. The “Introduction to the Book of Zohar” says that it is egoism that causes all the diseases and suffering in the world.

In the News (translated from Utro.ru): Countries are unable to enforce laws on the Internet. The laws that are currently in effect are not working. The need for laws on the Internet has become imminent. In fact, there are no Internet laws in Russia at all.

My Comment: It’s the same in other countries as well. The need to survive in the new interconnected world requires us to introduce new laws that will eliminate animosity, as well as the promotion and display of violence and evil. It requires the media, the school programs, and public organizations to start promoting relationships of kindness among people.

These laws must also become the basis for a new, worldwide court of law. The revelation of the global world is forcing us to establish a completely good bond between us and with the entire system of Nature, including Its still, vegetative and animate levels.
