Question: Why does the Creator punish us even before we begin to understand anything? Is this a way to treat an “unwise” child?
Answer: It is impossible to develop otherwise. Why don’t you get angry that a child grows so slowly and gets so many bumps and bruises and causes us so many problems a long the way? This is the only way to analyze your Kelim, desires.
Pain and worries accompany us throughout life, this is the clarification and nothing can be done.
And when we finally reach spiritual development, come to the group and we want to reveal the spiritual world, the Creator, in it, look how much confusion there is in the beginning: We drag with us all the previously acquired religious myths and stereotypes about spirituality and we lack any understanding of what it is.
Why is it made this way? Why are we not just given an exact map with directions so we can move with confidence and peace?
But we do not understand the higher program: Every step where you stumble is a place for analysis. You become confused and you keep turning around the same place, as if returning to the same place every time, but it is not the same thing, the analysis is different every time.
And mankind in general is wandering in the dark, confused by all sorts of beliefs and notions. How much more time will it take to bring them out of this mess? There is nothing that can be done; such is the path of development.
But now, in the next few years, very large and rapid changes will occur. We think that the world will keep developing at the same rate as before, but we are not taking globalization into consideration. We no longer have some individual small laws affecting every one of the “seventy nations,” now we have one common law for everyone. A new system of governance is being revealed.
This is why the world is becoming global. It is uniting through this single law, this force, and it is facing drastic changes. We will be taking very big steps as we advance.
