Answer: Of course, every person’s correction affects everyone since we are all in the same system. So there is the concept of “birthright,” which helps us advance. How can the concept of “birthright” help us and what is it? Is it some historical documents kept in an archive? Of course not.
It is about the correction of the desires. The great Kabbalists, the sages of the Talmud, made a special correction after which we don’t have to through physical penance in order to exit our ego. It is enough to make efforts studying Kabbalah. If I study in a group and want to connect to others in order to discover the Creator in the connection between us and by that bring Him contentment, it is enough for my advancement. I don’t have to torment my body, to beat myself and to be thrown to the ground.
Before the correction of the sages of the Talmud, a person had to torment his body if he wanted to reach a spiritual revelation. According to nature’s laws we had to humiliate our physical body and to torment it so that it would want to come out of its skin. Kabbalists in the past made corrections so that we wouldn’t have to use such methods.
Our forefathers belonged to the Sefirot: Keter, Hochma, Binah, and Daat (HBD). Then came the sages of the Talmud who belonged to Hessed, Gevura, Tifferet (HGT) and so they are called the “sons.” The period of the sages of the Talmud lasted until the destruction of the second Temple. These Kabbalists corrected the part of creation that belonged to their desire. Therefore, the Light already dressed in the same vessels and became closer to us!
We belong to the last Sefirot: Netzach, Hod, Yesod (NHY). Every period: HBD, HGT, and NHY lasts two thousand years and today we’ve reached the year 5773, which means we’ve nearly reached the end of the 6000 years of correction.
First the Surrounding Light reached only the most external circle—HBD. But the fathers have brought it closer by their corrections and it has reached the Sefirot of HGT. The sages of the Talmud brought the Surrounding Light even closer to NHY, and then Kabbalists who lived during the last exile passed on the Light even closer to us. This means that the Kabbalists of the past have prepared for us the corrections which we can now use. It is one general system.
By our corrections, we are preparing the infrastructure for the next generation. This help is not only in the books and video clips that we produce; what’s important is that we are preparing a system full of Light for the next generations and are bringing the Light even closer! Thanks to this, the whole world is waking and it isn’t because of some articles or clips on the Internet.
Everything wakes from below, through the general system of souls. So the more united we are, wanting the Light to be revealed in the connection among us, the closer we bring the Light to all of humanity.
By this we can understand the connection between all the souls, in all the generations. Thanks to each correction, the Light gradually gets closer to desires that are thicker and more internal. As long as we haven’t corrected ourselves, there will be parts of the desire in the world that will not be able to wake up.
