The world won’t recognize the importance of the wisdom of Kabbalah until it has reached the need for correction. But this need is yet to be revealed, and this is what is happening today. We have reached a dead end; we are up against a wall, helpless, not knowing what to do.
Until now we have always managed to overcome problems as we improved our life, but today it’s the opposite. We are sinking into a crisis that doesn’t end but increases.
This indicates that people are already starting to discover the need for a real change.
Here we are faced with the question about the meaning of life, which we didn’t ask before. All the previous generations aspired for more: to understand more, to feel more, to fly to the moon, to dive into the ocean, to build. Eventually everything we build is destroyed, and things are getting so bad that sometimes it seems as if it’s better to die. “What do we need this life for?” Today it’s a general question and it will become increasingly sharper.
Here comes the need for correction, and it can be fulfilled only by the Light that created it.
The method that allows us to summon the Light that corrects the desire is called the wisdom of Kabbalah. It connects the Light that created the desire and which can correct and fill it with the desire itself. So because there’s no other choice, humanity will eventually have to discover this method and to use it according to its destiny.
In the meantime, in the period of transition, the world doesn’t know about it yet. We don’t know much, but we are at least trying to hear. We have to understand the essence of the wisdom of Kabbalah as fast as we can and present it as well and much as we can to everyone. Then the world will reach correction.
By definition, the wisdom of Kabbalah is the revelation of the Creator to the created being, or a change of one’s desire thanks to which he will receive the Creator’s form and discover Him. The point is the aspect that we explain it from: either the aspect of the Lights or from the aspect of the vessels. We either speak about the revelation of the Light to the vessel or about a vessel to which the Light will be revealed only to the extent that they are equal in form. On the whole, it isn’t the Light that is revealed in the vessel, but the vessel that receives a form similar to the Light, called the “Creator.” Thus the Creator is revealed to the created being, and this is the goal.
