A History Of Two Thousand Years Of Illness

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: We make great efforts in dissemination. Why don’t things change in the world and in Israel? Is there a way to see how things improve through our efforts?

Answer: Things in Israel will change only if Israel will change. But on the whole, Israel has developed the best situation in the world. After all, Israel is the only nation that receives exactly according to what it does. If you do good, it will be good, and if you cause harm, it will be bad.

It isn’t so in other countries. They can do good, but things will be bad. Why? Because it is Israel that causes harm.

We should understand the system in which we operate, that we have the method of correction. To the extent that we use it correctly for ourselves and for the whole world, we see direct positive outcomes. If we don’t act properly, things will be bad for the whole world and for us too.

Israel is an artificial entity and there is nothing we can do about it. The Palestinians are right. Israel is neither a nation nor a state but an entity that exists in order to set an example for the whole world as to how to correct man, people, society, and the state so that they will resemble the Creator.

But the situation is neglected and the illness is chronic, and hasn’t been taken care of for thousands of years; now is the time to take care of it. So if we ask: “When will all this be over?” it means that we still don’t understand the general state, and that we are simply not serious.

If a person on the street wants all this to be over as soon as possible so that things can go back to the way they were before, there is nothing we can expect of him, because he doesn’t understand anything. But if we, who study the method of correction and how to fulfill it, see what our teachers write, we have no reason to cry, “When will things improve and change?”

When you change, everything will change. This is the only way it can happen: you, me, him, and her, all the people in the world who understand the state they are in. It is the innermost circle of humanity that is closest to the Creator in which all those who have performed this work since the days of Abraham until the destruction of the Temple, for 1800 years, are included.

3,800 years ago this problem was created in ancient Babylon when people felt the same way they feel today. 2,000 years ago the Temple was destroyed and so the method existed for 1800 years in the group of Abraham, among those he gathered in Babylon, people who could feel the importance of getting closer together and working on their ego. But this work was stopped after the destruction of the Temple and now it is our mission to carry it out.

Therefore there is nothing to ask about. It will not be any easier. Things are different now than they were in the past and it is getting worse because we don’t advance and don’t complete the evolution of the ego that develops faster than we manage to correct ourselves by drawing the Light that Reforms.

The missiles will keep on falling and there will be other problems until the people begin to respond to what is happening more correctly. They will begin to feel that there is an upper purpose for what is happening as a result of our work or as a result of the afflictions. Then people will not ask: “When will all this be over?” but will start thinking that we should probably do something with ourselves.

Question: We see that the war of Armageddon is starting in externality instead of in internality.

Answer: No. These events have nothing to do with the war of Armageddon. The war of Armageddon is when not only our close neighbors (or our inner cousins) are against us, but when the whole world unites against Israel. This means the whole general ego is ready to unite in order to force Israel to engage in its correction.

If we can spread the method of correction before everyone unites against us, then everything will go smoothly, peacefully, “theoretically.” But if we don’t, we will face great problems and terrible afflictions. This is what it says in the books of the prophets, and from those days until now everything has happened right on schedule…

  1. Hi

    I am the audiobook narrator for ‘Kabbalah for Beginners’. I have personally reached Ain and am travelling back to the future. I understand the allegory of all things and have reached Spiritual Attainment. My concern is sep 23, the Mayans, the Dinosaurs etc. How can Sep 23 be a Reality IF time is now? And are my writings (I have written my own ‘ladder’ or commentary on the Ascension process and have recorded the awakening & subsequent diary to Ascension. As I am the Creator with full use of the brain and sixth sense, will a new world manifest or does it just continue, once everything is minimum 5D?

  2. Dear Martin,

    Forget mysticism, Kabbalah is serious science.
