The Most Important Thing Is To Correct Your Soul

Every Person Has to Find His Own TeacherA question I received: If I haven’t attained the spiritual sensation yet, do I have to perform the physical commandments of Judaism?

My Answer: Kabbalah does not obligate anyone to do this. This science is studied by people of all nationalities, including those who observe religious commandments as well as those who are completely secular. We don’t meddle in these affairs; this is your personal business. We only teach people how they can attain equivalence with the Creator, or in other words, how to correct their 613 desires.

We are nearing the time when all humanity will have to attain the Creator, according to the written, “My house will be called the house of prayer for all the nations.” This means that the entire global egoism will be corrected, and the desire of every person will go through correction.

All the other aspects of people’s lives may remain and carry on in the same fashion, in whatever way people find the most comfortable and the best, if it matches their inner correction. Baal HaSulam writes that in the state of the final correction, every person can keep his religion.

That’s because Kabbalah views religion as a national custom, the culture of a nation, which each nation can keep. Religious observance constitutes external actions that are nothing more than a cultural tradition, an external covering, and the framework of people’s lives, telling them how to behave at home, with their families, and so on. However, this does not affect the correction of a person’s soul.

The most important thing is to attain the correction of you soul – to attain love for your neighbor.

Disappearing Matter: The Next Step For Science

disapperingAs scientists research nature, they discover that all matter consists of elementary particles and energy. By penetrating deeper inside matter, instead of particles they start finding waves, or in other words, forces.

But after that, matter disappears completely, and the only thing that remains is the force containing the Upper Light.

When these forces are identified by humans, they take on forms of inanimate objects, plants, animals and man. But all of these are just forces.

It’s similar to how an image is created on a TV screen by electromagnetic forces. That is how our picture of reality is depicted to us by forces, giving us a sensation of the world and ourselves.

However, when we go deeper into the micro-world, there will be a point where we won’t even see waves. Everything there disappears, similar to a clean, white page that was never touched by pen or pencil. That is how the scientific research of reality shifts from the observation of physical objects to atoms, waves and then – emptiness.

Through our research of matter, we return to the cause of is emergence – the Upper Light. But in order to perceive and research It, the researchers will have to change!

Acting In Accordance With The Principle Of Truth

threatWe always try to act in accordance with principles that replace the principle of truth. Truth is possible only when I attain the whole of creation and reveal the Nature of all creatures, the entire interconnection between everything and am able to see that the entire system is no longer concealed from me. At that point, I will have reached the revelation of the system of all worlds, meaning, the connections that exist between us.

I come to a state where everything is clearly revealed, I come to truly understand everything, make the correct decisions and manage everything correctly.

As yet, I still don’t have the opportunity to treat everyone and everything in the correct manner. Since society can’t demand true justice from a single person, in its place, we have created social systems based on the concepts of “mercy,” “justice” and “peace” in an effort to somehow compensate for all the differences between us.

To make up for our incorrect actions in society, humanity has invented all sorts of artificial entities, which is much like having prosthetic rather than real legs. So, in order to be able to live, we have created national welfare systems for the poor, pensions for the elderly, health care insurance and various social service and charitable funding agencies.

In our lifetime however, all these systems have stopped working, since the interconnection between people has been revealed. We have been stricken by the global crisis and it is impossible to maintain the existing systems if we don’t come to know the global system of connections between us.

At the moment, we are only seeing the external manifestations of the crisis in industry, culture, education and the mass media. However, we are connected internally and it is precisely this connection that we have to correct. Once we achieve this, then all other external systems will be corrected. After all, we did build them all based on our egoism.

In attendance and celebrating together from many different countries were 1300 children, parents, and those just wishing to submerge themselves in this atmosphere of happiness and unity.
