Even if all of humanity really wants to bring things into order on their own, the initial defect within us will destroy all the efforts. We can spend a million years going around the idea of unity, but we will not be able to realize it. Only the upper Light can do it. Our own “initiatives” will only add problems.
There are seven billion of us, and our egoism has been growing over the course of history. We have finally become a “round” system that our egoism has united into. Today, we see the screws tightening this system. We see it compress, become tighter, and we see it revealing new connections between us.
This interconnection did not manifest before, but now it is coming out. We will mark the beginning of this process as the year 1995, even though Baal HaSulam wrote in the forties that the world had become one family.
It will be 2012 soon, and the system is consolidating before our eyes. New continuous and reciprocal threads of connections are coming through. Reciprocity is mutual guarantee, no matter how it manifests, whether in a positive or a negative way.
This way, Nature obligates us to unite, and it will continue to act in a timely manner through suffering. The question is what kind of compression and pressure will be needed for us to say: “Enough, it’s time to do something with society.” However, so far, we are gripped in a vice only slightly.
One way or another, only the upper Light that Reforms will be able to give us peace. Only it will reveal the proper interconnection to us and change us so that we would want to unite or, to be more precise, to accept what already exists.
After all, we are connected, but against our will. This is where the crisis comes from. The world crisis is the manifestation of the distance between the desired and the actual. Universal interconnection is a fact. Professionals and researchers testify about it, and Baal HaSulam writes about it. It is real, but undesirable. Only the upper Light will give us the necessary desire. Nothing else will help man change his nature.
