Answer: The whole world is a desire to be filled. When there is no filling a person feels bad and he suffers. If there is too much filling, he feels good and enjoys. When a person feels good he doesn’t need any extra filling, and then he doesn’t hear anything. But if he needs something and you offer to fill that need, he will listen to you and will want to receive what you offer.
Now, when such an acute need for positive changes has been invoked in people, we have to let them know that we have the solution for saving the kidnapped boys. And for that, we have to connect.
It is because everyone wants the boys to come back! So let’s connect. It is a system that is subordinate to clear laws in that it either works or it doesn’t. All troubles stem from lack of connection according to the Reshimot (reminiscences) and according to time.
Now we have to be more connected, but since we haven’t been connected, this trouble has come about. If we want to get rid of this affliction, we have to connect. We should constantly worry about our connection and take every advantage we are given to do so. Otherwise we will not follow the path of I shall hasten it, the path of the Light, but rather the path of in its time, the path of suffering. The tragic event of the abducted boys is an example for that.
