Question: History demonstrates that major wars always happen at the borderlines between epochs when old stereotypes are being destroyed. On one hand, wars always triggered destruction; on the other hand, they pulled humanity to a higher level of evolution. Is it possible for us to skip the next war?
Answer: First of all, I don’t try to outsmart anybody. I do what I am supposed to do according to my mission, using all my means to the end. We do not know start and end dates.
Egyptian exile experience suggests that suffering tremendous pain and misery preceded the birth, the escape from Egypt. Labor contractions are extremely intense. Overall, there is what is called the ten plagues, ten labor contractions, that form the need for correction in us. So, we have to go through them anyway.
I don’t know when they will be over, nor can I identify each attack. I’m not so wise to know how things will unfold this time around. There are no exact directions, and I myself have not yet passed the process; I go through it together with everyone else: What can I say? Especially because it is about the plane of this world with its layer of egoistic thickness. So, we simply do our job.
As to a threat of war, wars vary. The main thing is to keep the people of Israel in the land of Israel and initiate dissemination of the wisdom of Kabbalah for the sake of correcting the world. Everything that opposes this purpose goes against the goal of creation. This is how we should regard this issue. In accordance with the law of root and branch, correction is possible only in this land. Although, according to Baal HaSulam’s writings, Jerusalem today (after the shattering occurred) is merely a source of evil.
Question: A cancerous tumor destroys processes in the body of humanity. In medicine, they use chemotherapy in this case. If we translate it to society, is this equivalent to nuclear war?
Answer: No, I don’t think we will really come to this point, not if we manage to embrace the world with the methodology of correction and have more people accept our thoughts and desires. Nor will it happen if people start understanding us better, mainly through our internal lines of connection that “thread” through the all of humanity.
In any case, our core activities should be held in the land of Israel. With all the pressure and our giving the people the wisdom of correction, it will spread throughout the world without any problems. Baal HaSulam writes in the Introduction to The Book of Zohar that it is written in many sources. I repeat, according to the law of roots and branches, the main correction is here.
This is our job. Therefore, all our groups wherever they are and whichever language they speak, besides disseminating the wisdom, should use every opportunity to influence what is happening in Israel. This land is at the very center of the world map and is the most problematic place.
Question: Contemporary Jewish people include people who have come from all over the world bringing their traditions and stereotypes. Will they be able to rise above their “baggage” and fulfill the part of the work that is assigned to them? Will they be able to unite the world and raise it to a new level of evolution without revolution and war?
Answer: It’s not about country of origin, although it of course plays a role, above which they have to rise for the sake of unity. In general, the ascent will spread the upper Light among everybody and will allow It to reach the parts of the world with which we already have established connections. The dispersion of the Jewish people happened only for the sake of making them bond with other nations. So, when the people of Israel are united, the power of their unification transmits through the lines of internal connection with the nations of the world, thus making them sense and accept what is going on here in the land of Israel.
