Eventually a person will acknowledge the fact that he is the one who has to change. This understanding is not immediate because who would want this from the start? But gradually it becomes clear that the crisis continues unabated and troubles are only getting more serious. Today we already see: in all of its activities humanity has committed a sea of mistakes and it is collapsing. This begs the question: Why? Why does all that we have built work against us?
Defects in all the systems are disclosed every day, in fact our ego increasingly destroys and distorts them. If we take the health care system for example: There are an enormous amount of medicines that are essentially poisons that destroy our body. They are specifically designed so that we become addicted to them and will consume them all our lives, calling them by new names.
Specialists produce the latest medical instruments and apparatus for testing and analysis. And yet, they are not needed for people who are so debilitated and destroyed that they don’t know where to go with such a life. Is this “mercy?” We don’t know what we want.
It’s the same in every field of life: in the family, in education, etc. Initially we wanted to do good things, and then we discovered that the ego distorts everything we start and turns them against us. This is why it’s called “help against us,” meaning that whatever you do it operates against you, obliging you to correct the situation.
This process has become global today. In fact, none of the systems we have created operates in our favor. The conclusion is that the only solution is to change human nature and not the external circumstances. Gradually it’s becoming more evident and as a result, the wisdom of Kabbalah is revealed.
Humanity will discover that the cause for all the global problems is human nature, but no one knows how to correct it. Here comes our turn. We have to work seriously in order to show people the solution: Despite the deadlock, it is possible to correct man and to balance his nature. The method exists and is ready for use.
This is the message that we have to bring the world. Otherwise, it will deteriorate to even worse conditions and only then will it come to the same solution. We have to try to show it to the world now.
