Humanity still doesn’t understand what is happening. It is gradually starting to see the arising problems, but still doesn’t perceive them as problems of another level that require a completely new solution.
We are trying to solve them by the old methods which we used before, even though we don’t succeed at it. However, we still don’t even suspect that a problem of a completely different nature is surfacing here. The science of Kabbalah explains that we are having such a difficult time because we are egoists and cannot understand that the emerging problems are global and integral. We are trying to solve this global, integral problem with the previous means—by trying to a pinpoint a discrete target without correcting the entire system as a whole.
That is why the transition to the new world where we will have to live as one global, integral system is not simple at all. It is possible that we will have to go through many revolutions and even world wars until people realize that they already exist in a new world.
That is why the science of Kabbalah is being revealed in our time, because its purpose is to explain to us how to live in this new world. It will enable us to find out how to arrange upbringing and education, family life, work, the world, the home, and our health—meaning to correct the entirety of our life in this world.
But the most important thing that it has to do is to explain to us is that by virtue of this new method and new world that is being revealed to us, we ascend to a different level of existence. We are no longer living in a world where every person does what he wants, but are ascending to a new level and entering a new dimension.
