A Nation Of Kabbalists From The Smallest To The Greatest

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: How do we develop sensitivity to the desires of the community?

Answer: The more that you go out to the public, the more Kelim (vessels) you will receive from them. Even if you are tough and insensitive and it is difficult for you to work with people, you will begin to be stimulated by them in spite of it all. Because you invest effort in them, the ego itself obligates you to fulfill them.

This is because they become your children. You invest in them and your effort is there. Part of you is already with them after you take care of them. So you will want to be integrated with their deficiencies and to fulfill them. The main thing is to work as much as possible in dissemination. The more rapidly we absorb the deficiencies of the public, the more rapidly we will advance.

And in fact, the lower level is not really lower to us, for indeed it is written: “For they shall all know Me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them” (Jeremiah 31:33), especially when we work with the wider public in the land of Israel, meaning with the desire that was once organized in ten Sefirot.

The nation of Israel attained the spiritual state and was shattered. So we must bring the method of correction to it. It is not enough just to connect the nation of Israel to us. Instead, we must make each one of them a Kabbalist with spiritual attainment.

If they won’t want to rise to a level like this, then we also will not rise. We must see them as people who are connected to us on the same level on which we exist. And we will see that they will reach us very quickly.

We must convey the method of correction to them by beginning with a short explanation followed with more and more. Everyone must be a master of the method so that he can explain it to himself and to others so that they will understand the thought of creation, the goal of creation, the mission of the nation of Israel and of the nations of the world, the reason for the crisis and the way to correct it.

After this, they will want to know what the Torah represents and they will be stunned by the discovery of what is concealed there. We must explain all of this, for without this, the nation of Israel will not fulfill its mission. After this, the entire world must do the same thing.

We need to teach and educate the whole world. This means to be a light to the nations. We are talking about a state in which each one will have some kind of free choice, which may not happen today. Otherwise a person has no place in the collective Kli (vessel). It is said: “My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples” (Isaiah 56:7), meaning that every person will feel a deficiency for something higher.

The most important thing for us is to now begin to teach the community gradually, in waves. We begin with an introduction, then games and so on, gradually, so that people will begin to open their eyes. We must raise them and not just bring them some kind of infusion of a nourishing solution. This is not enough for the level of Adam (man, human).
