Question: Baal HaSulam says that he was given the privilege to disclose Kabbalah because he lived in a unique time, in the generation of the complete revelation of the Creator. However, people started to study his writings only now, 60 years later. Why did it take so long for people to begin seeking his books?
Answer: There is the time of handing it down, and there is the time for taking it in. Obviously, today, we are only beginning to explore his method. Thirty years ago, his books were studied by fewer than 10 students in the whole world. However, today, these texts are studied by hundreds of thousands of people. The books are translated into multiple languages and are available through the Internet.
The delay that occurred in the past demonstrates how much work we still have to do in order to bring these sources closer to the masses, adapt them, and to awaken the masses to them. We are the medium that stands between the sources and the people. Hence, we have to work in order to bring them to one another and to teach the people how to correctly use the method of the revelation of the Upper Governance.
