When the knowledge about the science of Kabbalah reached the nations of the world, it stimulated the development of the world and, at the same time, caused great damage. Until this time, Kabbalah had only been revealed to special chosen individuals among the people of Israel. Once it was revealed to the world however, people began to egoistically attain the system of the construction of the universe, to study the laws of Nature and to brutally exploit Nature and their neighbors in order to use them for their own interests.
This has led to all the destruction that has occurred and continues to occur in the world, in spite of the fact that Kabbalists hid the science of Kabbalah. It still remains so concealed that a person who is not ready for it is incapable of understanding anything in the books of Kabbalah. One must first correct his qualities into bestowal and love for his neighbor, and only then will the great forces of Nature be revealed to him.
However, over the span of mankind’s search for knowledge, we obtained and were able to use the ordinary sciences to learn about the external forces of Nature. This led to technological development, which we see has obviously been to our own detriment.
As a result, we see that the entire development of the whole world, built by us throughout all of human history, has not been to our benefit, since it has served only our egoism. All the knowledge that we have received about Nature, all the laws and examples that we attained and tried to implement for our own benefit, turned against us in the end. This has been a cumulative process that has led us to the global universal crisis that is occurring on all the levels of Nature and in all areas of human activity.
Everything that human beings have done for thousands of years in history is today being revealed as evil. It is as though we are drawing a line between the entire former development of human civilization and the present. From this point on, we must honestly tally up everything we have done and decide how we should develop in the future.
It turns out that the direction of our future development is quite simple. After all, if all our knowledge about the laws of Nature and all our sciences, have proven to only bring us harm because we had turned them into a servant for our egoism, then let’s turn everything around! If we use science and all our knowledge on the good path, truly for the benefit of humanity, it will become our helper and bring us genuine prosperity. We will no longer destroy Nature, our environment, and ourselves, putting ourselves in danger of self-destruction. On the contrary, we will rise to a completely new level.
We use the forces of Nature and its examples either to our detriment or for a noble purpose. These two opposites are called the “servant” who is in power instead of her mistress, or the “mistress” who rises and reveals herself with the help of the servant. The “mistress” is the science of Kabbalah, which teaches us how to correct our nature, and by using it correctly, to reveal another part of Nature and its enormous forces. All of this is given to us for our use and eternal existence.
