Creating The Model Of A New World

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: At the December Convention, we want to celebrate the birth of a new world. What should we concentrate on?

Answer: We must unite for the sake of the values that we want to highlight at the convention. Day by day, we should put more and more effort to feel ourselves living in a new world. We need to play it, imagine it in the relationships between us, in all our thoughts and actions.

As Baal HaSulam writes, we must create a model of the new society, which will form the basis of the new world and will allow everyone to learn from our example. So, let us first discover this new world between us. Then we will see how opportunities that we have never dreamed of open up for us in communal life, industry, commerce, education, and so on.

We don’t really understand these stages, so leave them to the Light. If you do what you can, everything else will work out. Our job is to exert effort, and opportunities will open. All our efforts need to be directed at the new world, new relationships, new society. This work should take each moment of our lives, setting the tone and creating a mood in dissemination, in the preparation for the convention, and in the relationships between the groups so that we feel ourselves as one group more and more….

Every day we should see to the growing unity and bridge the gap between the desired and current reality. If we still see negative phenomena in the world, this means that we have not achieved the correction between us. And this is the only reason.

After all, humanity develops according to what has been prepared for it, while we have freedom of choice and the ability to attract the Light, which then pours onto the entire world and establishes order in it. Thus, the convention is nearing, and everything is very serious.
From the 5th part of the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 10/30/2011, “The Love for the Creator and Love for the Created Beings”

  1. You say that if we see negative phenonmenon in the world then we haven’t made the correction yet. I see the good in everything, yet Kabbalah says to look at a person’s egoism and how things are not working the way we want them too. To someone not studying Kabbalah, this seems like we are asking them to see the world as negative because we examine egoism. To someone who doesn’t want to examine himself and his ego and thinks the world is fine as it is, Kabbalah seems like a bad thing. And, seeing the good in the world, yet at the same time, examining egoism seem like two contradictory things. How do I explain this to someone that examining egoism isn’t negative and also that they are not two contradicting things?

  2. Also, I cannot measure that someone not studying Kabbalah who sees studying egoism as negative as it being true that it is negative to study egoism. Because they are making their conclusion based off of an egoistic perspective. And, if what they say is true, then it cannot also be true, that someone who studies Kabbalah and egoism as not a bad thing, is also true at the same time. There has to be only one measure of truth. It cannot go up and down based off of egoistic calculations. How do I discern this to others?
