Question: Is Israel bringing Shefa (abundance) and Light to the World? In the meantime everyone is blaming us for bringing harm to the world.
Answer: In the meantime, we are stopping up the conduits of the Light and are not letting the Light and Shefa to pour through them to all the worlds. We are in the lowest world, in the center of all of creation, and we are stopping up the passage of the Light, of the abundance from above to below, by not letting it rise back from below to above.
The problem is that although we are all in a sea of Light, of Shefa, it is coming from above to below and pressing on us through those systems that we must activate but yet. The Light is pressing on Israel through nature, through the nations of the world.
Israel feels the pressure from below, from those to whom it needs to transfer the Light, and also pressure from above, from the Light that must pass through it to all the nations of the world and the nature of the still, vegetative, and animate. Israel is found in the middle and feels the pressure from both sides.
