There Is A Purpose To The Turbulence In Our Lives

is-the-bermuda-triangle-myth-or-reality1We are in a unique predicament today: Nature is showing us that we are separated and hate each other, and that our egoism is destructive. Yet It is also showing us that we depend on each other on the global level and are connected together against our will.

We have nowhere to run from each other. We are being compelled to obey Nature’s law, and it is Nature that is compelling us, rather than artificial conditions made by man. If we don’t follow this law, we will be in even greater conflict with Nature, putting ourselves at risk of greater blows and suffering, even extinction. And all of this will happen because of our egoism.

We are in a state of expulsion from Nature. Is there anything that could liberate us from this state? There is: our salvation lies in creating the correct connection among us and with the Nature around us. This will give us the opportunity to become an integral, harmonious part of It.

It is imperative that each of us will feel and understand that our survival – our food, water, climate, health, psychological and spiritual condition, and everything else – depends exclusively on our harmony with Nature. In fact, this is the purpose of the turbulence in our lives. All the situations, incidents and states that we go through are intended to help us reveal the inner, driving force – the Creator. The troubles and stress are what enable us to learn to sense Him and to start to see that He is the reason behind everything.

This is why the crises come in waves. Their goal is to reveal that the hatred between us is the reason for all the bad things in the world. We will then see that this hatred is tantamount to an expulsion from perfection, and that rising above the hatred will liberate us from the expulsion.

A Lesson For Everyone Who Has Bad Luck

analysis-of-the-crisis2Egoism has reached its maximum development on the individual level, and the individual egoisms have started to bond. This is why people have begun to reveal their interconnection and interdependence. Here is a lesson for everyone who has bad luck: if your desires and thoughts are aimed at the common good, then you will succeed at everything you do.

The recipe for success is to do everything you can to bestow upon others. This means that you only keep what’s necessary for you to have a normal life. For a business, “working to bestow” means that the only revenue it makes is the amount necessary to cover its expenses This is how people should set the retail price of goods and services. No one should make a profit that just “sits there” in their bank account.

This approach is completely opposite to what is happening today. However, by the end of the crisis, everyone will shift to this system. Not a single business will be able to operate differently.

This is because everything that one receives in excess of what is necessary for him, is a violation of his balance with nature. In order to be in balance, a person should consume as much as he needs in order to exist, the same as any other animal. The suffering people feel and Kabbalah’s explanation of the cause of the suffering will help people to understand that best way to exist is to serve others, in the same way as cells, organs, and body parts do.

One way or another, Nature (the Creator) will prevail. This can either happen forcefully – through suffering on our part, or voluntarily, with understanding, because people will realize that they have to obey Nature and its law of harmony.

As soon as we begin to cooperate with Nature, It will begin to treat us differently and our condition will change. We will suddenly have enough water, food and all the other things that everyone needs.
