The Baby Is Crying And The Grownups Are Happy

Dr. Michael LaitmanWe should be happy that we have the opportunity to disseminate the wisdom of Kabbalah all over the world; like Baal HaSulam once said: “I am happy that I was born in a generation in which it is possible to publicize the wisdom of Kabbalah.”

From the moment we have the opportunity to fulfill the method of correction, we should treat the whole world as a means in order to correct. Then we will feel happy about the opportunity we were given in order to work and to correct. Eventually, we will receive all the good reward that we have created, built, and earned ourselves.

We have to be happy when there are two components at the same time: the corruption that is revealed and the accessible method in order to correct it. This is because we only have to make the right effort and all of the world of Ein Sof (Infinity) will be revealed in us.

We have to show the world our joy, hope, elation, and confidence instead of the fear that engulfs the world today: joy rather than fear, confidence and a clear knowledge of what is happening and will continue.

It isn’t the suffering of the world but joyful labor pains. When a newborn baby cries, everyone around him is happy; our body, our ego is crying, while the human part in us is happy. We have to explain this to everyone and to draw them to us by our high spirits.

We have to improve in this since the world continues to deteriorate lower and lower into the abyss, into the feeling of despair, powerlessness, and hopelessness. We have to feel the joy very powerfully, the hope, the clear knowledge, the confidence, that everything that is revealed is only in our favor, since everything is ready for correction, for the “King’s meal.”

Everything depends on how we fulfill our mission, by understanding that the time has come for the inner correction and for the widespread external dissemination of the wisdom of Kabbalah. It is very important to what extent we will be able to radiate the joy and confidence externally to the world by acting patiently and carefully.

We should understand that a person who is not one of us finds it difficult to perceive this attitude. It can irritate him and make him mad that we are in a state opposite from the one he is in, not sharing his problems and worries, that we are happy while everyone else is crying. We have to be considerate of people and gradually, gently, and patiently explain to them how to come out of this crisis.

We should explain to people that the moment we change our approach, we will already correct our attitude to the Creator a bit and be closer to the upper Light. Therefore, we will begin to feel this reality; we will feel that it isn’t just empty words but that there is something behind them.
