The Hope For Peace

Dr. Michael LaitmanBaal HaSulam, “The Peace”: And it is hopeless to hope for peace…. And it is a must that there will always be a large minority in society who are unsatisfied by the conditions offered to them…. This minority will therefore always remain a ready and willing fuel for the new quarrelsome people and the new peacemakers that will always follow.

We see that on the human level, even an approach based on the best intentions will not allow us to reach truth and peace. There will always be quarrelsome people who will disturb the process.

What can be done? Nothing. Human society and human nature were intentionally made this way so as not to allow us to get along in life. We can acknowledge the fact that it isn’t in our power, but not more than that.

How much bloodshed and suffering is needed until we realize that we cannot have the minimal correct social relations among us? Nature is being revealed to us as more and more global and integral, connected and mutually dependent, and it gradually shrinks that “small place” in which we can continue to exist in the old egotistic form. The new laws are getting closer by leaps and bounds.

In order to compensate for what we cannot achieve without unity, society is using different charitable organizations, but we will soon see how this “charity” is actually leading us to destruction. Baal HaSulam says that the destruction will actually come from those who try to make peace.

There is only one solution to the problem: educating people to live in mutual guarantee. Thanks to this, humanity will be able to feel that there is something solid we can rely on. We can achieve this by creating the right environment. In addition to teaching and acquiring knowledge, education should include special activities by which the environment influences people. If we begin to organize such an environment, the internal forces to create it will be revealed through us. Without this there is no hope for peace.
From the 4th part of the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 10/16/11, “The Peace”
