Friends, for the first time in history we have reached the actual realization of the science of Kabbalah, which is intended for man and for the correction that creation has to go through! All of this is now in our hands and we have to do this even though it might seem difficult and even impossible.
Even if we are still afraid of being incapable and unable to do this, and even if we feel insecure, there is no other way to go—the time has come! Reality is obligating us to act. The place of the breaking is being revealed to us and we are obligated to perform the correction.
Even though we are used to thinking that Kabbalah is a study of some texts, intentions, and actions that don’t bring the desired result, but only become expressed deep inside, in a person’s experiences and sensations, yet at the same time, today we have reached a situation where this is also starting to become expressed in matter. That is, everything we study and everything we are trying to realize in the intention, are things we also have to see as clearly affecting matter and the occurrences happening in the world, in the new balance of forces, in the process that the world is going through.
We have reached practical Kabbalah! And it is impossible to leave your mission and run away. If we don’t do what is incumbent on us, then there are very dramatic events waiting for us and for the rest of the world.
The force that has come to help us advance will continue to operate even if we don’t use it correctly. If we miss the opportunity to use it correctly, by the desired path, then it will influence us in spite of our desire, in a very negative form.
Whether we want it or not, this force is now being revealed and it has to become expressed in us. We can turn it into an anti-egoistic screen and Reflected Light, to the degree we become similar to the Creator’s bestowal. And nothing can be better than that! But if we don’t do that, then the same force that we did not turn into a screen and intention, into the Reflected Light and bestowal, into Light and goodness, will start influencing us in the opposite form.
That is why Baal HaSulam says that he had to publish the newspaper and start acting so everyone would find out what kind of task they are facing, and would be able to carry it out.
