Answer: Exodus means reaching a new consciousness, knowledge, awareness, thought or desire. A person rises internally. This is called redemption. He begins to see that the whole world is connected. This constitutes a preparation for redemption, and today humanity is beginning to become aware of this already.
All of us are connected whether we wish to be or not. Its quite the opposite of our desire. On the one hand, most of the scientists, politicians, and economists talk about the world being a connected system. They simply see that this is how it is, but they don’t know what to do with it. How do we sever these connections that we don’t want?
This fact is being discovered more and more and we see that this connection works against us. We want to break these connections, but that won’t help us. That is how we discover the dominance of Pharaoh, and then no choice will be left for us except to agree that our connection is derived from nature.
For the first time in the history of humanity, it is beginning to be aware that it is managed by nature and is found within it and not above it. The person will understand that nature activates and manages him, and not that he manages nature. This is a change in paradigm, in the general ideology, that exists in humanity.
For the first time in all of history, we need to bow our heads and recognize that we are like the entire world of the still, vegetative, and animate nature. We are also animals activated by nature, and we must do something with ourselves: change ourselves.
Humanity still will need to reach an awareness and agreement that we must change our nature that was intentionally created against the collective integral nature. Attainment and recognition of our true state will be called the “years of the Egyptian exile.”
At first, it would seem that it is good to be in exile, absolutely tolerable, and, in the end, it has become clear that this is very bad and that we must change. So, we need to work on this change, and we see how much it is impossible and isn’t attainable. So, Pharaoh will be revealed to us as the power of evil. We will want to flee from him, but we will not be ready. This is a long way to go.
I think that we, those who are drawn toward correction, will pass through this process like our ancestors, and all the rest of humanity will pass through this through mutual integration and supporting our work. They will not need to go through all of these stages, for they don’t belong to Israel, but to the desire to receive, which is called the “nations of the world.” Therefore, they don’t need to carry out the big corrections. They will get everything by joining with us.
