Baal HaSulam, “A Handmaid that Is Heir to Her Mistress”: Know that a branch that extends from the internality is the people of Israel, which has been chosen as an operator of the general purpose and correction. It contains the preparation required for growing and developing until it moves the nations of the worlds, too, to achieve the common goal.
The branch that extends from the externality is the nations of the world. They have not been imparted the qualities that allow them to advance towards the purpose one at a time. Rather, they are fit to receive the correction at once and to the fullest, according to their Higher Root.
Question: What does that have to do with us?
Answer: When you, as Galgalta ve Eynaim (GE), by your gradual corrections, acquire the spiritual readiness, the AHP will join all at once. In contrast to the negativity that is revealed, the nations of the world will perceive your method “all at once.” It will be revealed suddenly: “Oh! That’s right!” without any accounts, calculations, or investigations. It’s amazing how the truth is revealed within the desire to receive.
We are confused because we also have the desire to bestow. On the whole, we are between the two desires and our systems are revealed very weakly. On the other hand, in the desire to receive that hardly has any traces of GE, the decision is taken very simply: “If the Light comes, I am with it, and if it doesn’t come, I am against it.”
Accordingly, the external attitude towards us will also take on extreme forms, either positive or negative ones.
Question: How is this reflected in our internal work?
Answer: We have to go over the sequence of our actions, of our internal states, as quickly as possible in order to be ready to connect with AHP and to save it. As Baal HaSulam says in the article “The Arvut (Mutual Guarantee),” this is our goal. Actually it’s the goal of all of creation. It’s like the metaphor that the Creator turned to the nations of the world first and offered them the method of correction, but then He gave it to the people of Israel because it’s only in this way, through this link, that they can receive it.
Question: Are you saying that we are lagging behind in carrying out this mission? That we are not revealing it enough?
Answer: We are not concerned enough about bringing this information of the method of correction to people, first in the form of mutual guarantee. We have to carry out a campaign for this method and for its revelation. Now we are intensifying our work on the Internet and I am asking everyone to join the department of virtual dissemination and to take part in the work. It’s very important. We are behind and we must hurry.
Question: But we are very anxious about what is happening in the world….
Answer: We should be anxious about not carrying out our mission. This should be our only concern. You should be anxious about the mission that you haven’t fulfilled and not about something else. Leave all your worries about the future so that it won’t weaken your dissemination work. Transfer all your anxieties and worries to the current dissemination campaign on the Net.
What’s more, the outcome should be one: to bring contentment to the Creator. If you want to stop the wars and the other problems in the world, you remain on the level of “local” calculations that don’t solve anything. On the corporeal level there will always be death and darkness. In order to pull the whole world upwards after us, you need a spiritual calculation, a yearning for the Creator, since there is none else besides Him.
