A question I received: I have always been a good, responsible worker, but I was recently fired from my job. I have no money, but I have to feed my family. So who’s to blame for all of this: my own ego? And what should I do now?
My Answer: There is a reason for the situation in the world today. Everything is developing purposefully. Nature has a plan, and currently it is making all the people in the world, in every country, be afflicted by blows. These blows are not coming down on us randomly, because everything that happens to every person is purposeful and thought out. We are all interconnected inside a global network, where there is a place and a program for every person.
Therefore, it does you no good to simply complain about being fired and ask, “What should I do now?” The circumstances require you to gain awareness and understanding. This is what you have to focus on, and if you do, your situation will improve.
However, you are not the only one who does not understand what is happening. Just look at how the whole world is reacting to the current crisis: everyone is simply running away from the unpleasant situation toward something that appears better. The “bubbles” they created have burst, so now they are creating new ones. This is why the stock market keeps rising and growing. How else could it be rising if people are being fired, the industries and production are coming to a standstill, and trade is winding down?
Hence, it is obvious that today we are being lied to two-fold. It’s as if we have taken a pill to reduce our fever and we think that we are already cured. We see the stocks rising and think that everything is okay. People have comforted themselves, but in actuality it’s like taking a drug. For now everything seems alright.
But our situation is like a person who’s falling off a roof top, and someone asks him, “How are you doing?” And he replies, “Just fine – I’m still alive.”
Notwithstanding, people are scared inside. But a person cannot live in constant fear; he has to compensate for it in some way. There is nothing we can do until people will figure out why this situation is happening, what is the cause of the “illness” and how it is progressing. That is how they will find the way to cure it.
This illness can go on for many years if we don’t begin treating it. But when we do begin, then everything will happen quickly and easily. The remedy exists – it is the method of correcting man’s nature, known as “Kabbalah.”
