Why Correct The World? (Advanced)

Correction Depends Only On Desire, Not Knowledge

Three questions I received on the correction of the world:

Question: Sometimes even avid followers of Kabbalah and students of Bnei Baruch have simple but “fundamental” questions they feel are necessary for further advancement and understanding. My question is: it says that the wisdom of Kabbalah can help correct the world. But why do we have to correct the world?

My Answer: It’s because the world does not exist independently of you or outside of you, but  only inside you and its existence depends on your qualities. So, by correcting the world, you correct your qualities.

Question: Correction can be brought into the world only by the people with a point in the heart, even though they are not corrected yet. Is it true that once people with a point in the heart become corrected, they will receive the quality of Bina from the Creator, which is the quality of bestowal toward the entire world, including the still, vegetative, and animate levels? The world, on the other hand, has the quality of Malchut and cannot correct itself on its own. So, the only ones who can correct the world are people with the quality of Bina, those with a point in the heart – Bnei Baruch.

My Answer: You are absolutely correct!

Question: Is there a critical mass of Kabbalah students that has to be reached in order for positive changes to take place in the world?

My Answer: You are that critical mass!

I Am Here For You On This Blog

hereA question I received: Since I cannot contact you directly, let me throw out some burning questions…

My Answer: I’m here for you on this blog, in direct contact with you!

Question cont’d: Do you consider Kabbalah to be a complete and absolute wisdom that cannot be supplemented by anything?

My Answer: Every person who attains Kabbalah today adds his part to it, along with the Kabbalists of the past. It works the same way in any science. However, in Kabbalah, this is done through one’s attainment by the method of correction, rather than through egoistic knowledge or theories. So, you are welcome to reveal and supplement the general picture with your own observations.

Question cont’d: Say a person has attained the full correction, but was forced to return to this world in order to complete certain tasks. Does he have to undertake the correction of the entire corrupted world once again? In other words, one’s individual correction is not final until one leaves this world?

My Answer: That’s correct.

Question cont’d: Were there any Kabbalists in the Sanhedrin aside from Kayafa? If yes, what was the percentage?

My Answer: All 120 members of the Sanhedrin were great Kabbalists who attained the Creator.

Question cont’d: Was Avesta knowledgeable in Kabbalah? If so, why did Alexander burn her, considering that all his actions were controlled by the Creator?

My Answer: The Creator governs everything. Avesta and Alexander were like robots that He controlled.

Hacker Soldiers To Fight Wars Of The Future

migrationIn the news (translated from Mignews.com): Science fiction writers never imagined that instead of guns, tanks and missiles, we would soon go into battle using computer programs. Some predicted that the battle fields of the 21st century would be filled with cyber soldiers rather than people and that the battles themselves would take place in interplanetary space. Instead of this, the ones that will go to battle will be lines of organized hacker-thieves with a mastery of computer programs rendering the enemy’s armor nothing but a heap of metal.

My comment: Isn’t this boring! But it is precisely in such battles that today’s boys are discovering the spirit of combat!

Will The Crisis Bring Us Closer To Marxism?

closerA question I received: Wouldn’t you agree that Kabbalah is very similar to Marxism? Are you really endorsing Marxism, when it had failed so miserably in Russia?

My Comment: Marxism failed because the method of transitioning to an altruistic regime is comprised of two conflicting processes that were not handled correctly. According to Kabbalah, you must first restrict a desire, and then acquire a screen (the intention to bestow) over it.

The first part of the transition is to end the old egoistic social regime. The only way to move away from it is by either hating it or the people in authority.

The second part of the transition is to altruistically develop the masses in order to move closer to creating an altruistic society. Marx knew that the tactic must shift midway from an egoistic destruction of the past to an altruistic creation of the future. After all, an altruistic society is only possible if it is built on an altruistic foundation, and in order to do this, it is necessary to prepare (educate) the masses.

What happened in Russia was that Marxism only completed the first part – the dethronement. But it could not educate the masses so as to replace the egoism that was instilled in the initial dethronement, and to transform it to altruism – the foundation for a collective regime.

The only way to change people’s behavior diametrically, from egoism to altruism, is by educating the masses and nurturing the realization that this change is necessary. Only after that can the new society be implemented.

Do you remember how the entire world held their breath, waiting to see a successful establishment of the Soviet regime – the second part of the correction?  If they would have succeeded in this, then the entire world would have adopted the collective regime by now. However, the egoistic direction of the first part of the transition became destructive for the collective regime of the second part.

Conclusion: In our times, the revelation of Nature’s laws is making the need for a collective regime more and more apparent. By failing to observe Nature’s laws, we only draw greater suffering upon ourselves. Therefore, we must give practical and scientific examples to people and an explanation of the fact that egoism is destructive. This must continue until the masses begin to understand. We should not oppose mankind, but its egoism. In the end, our message is unity, bestowal and love!
