There are three levels of feeling secure about one’s future:
1. Material security, when everybody wishes to ensure a normal life for themselves for the present and future. (The wisdom of Kabbalah states that a person must ensure not only his today, but also tomorrow: to have a pension, medical insurance and not become a burden for the society).
2. Security provided by the society, when a person is surrounded by an environment where everyone takes care of all the others.
3. The third level of security is not provided by the money and earned material wealth or even the society, but comes from the Creator.
These are the steps we must ascend. It doesn’t imply a carefree attitude or cancel fears and problems. There will definitely be corporeal problems, just as today we are facing problems with food supply and even starvation, all of which is there to push us toward seeking the right kind of security.
