The Land Of Israel Is No “Warm Nest”

Dr. Michael LaitmanThe purpose of the wars the people of Israel engage in is to make us understand what we should fight for and how we should do it. All wars must be engaged in internally and pursue one goal: unity among us.

Question: How exactly do we interact with the upper force when we are at war?

Answer: The upper force is a natural power; it represents the force of unity, the Light. As soon as we attract it, “invite” it to descend to and govern us, it appears. And then, through us, the people of Israel convey this force to the nations of the world.

Thus, the concept of “Israeli wars” means the battle against our egoism that separates us. “Israeli wars” signify combats for unity that must be created among us and then transferred to other nations.

Question: What are the indicators that the upper force manifests among us and makes changes? Could it be in changing dynamics of the process?

Answer: I judge this in the global world crisis that tells us the world lacks unity and connection. We all are in a system that identifies us as one, undividable, general whole, and yet we are detached from each other and therefore we suffer damage and cannot attain the state of abundance. This is the essence of the world crisis.

Negative results of the general crisis are shown in all spheres of our life: deterioration of family values, mutual hatred, wars, conflicts, devastation of natural resources, etc. All of these disasters root from the wrong connection between us.

Question: Why do restrictions that limit our military capabilities despite our superiority in arms?

Answer: We have an asset: a people who are called “the people of Israel” living in the land of Israel. In other words, we have everything to organize our life in a way that is required of us. After all, “Israel” stands for unity and connection. “Israel” means that we are all connected and fixed on the goal prepared for us from birth: to be “as one man with one heart.”

I think people have come to the point of despair of the partial military victories we achieve. The people of Israel are ready to hear exactly what our salvation depends on. Clearly conventional methods are not even close to resolving the problem.

On the contrary, year after year we sink deeper into this problem. So let’s give up our last illusions: There is no military or political solution to the situation; the only way to resolve this confrontation was described in the wisdom of Kabbalah thousands of years ago. Nothing has changed since then.

Question: Is it true that the current war opens and awakens people’s hearts?

Answer: It happens not only to us. I repeat, the wars that we are forced to engage in are meant to show us that we have to seek a solution of a totally different nature. Military actions alone direct us in the wrong way. It is completely unfeasible to cope or make friends with our neighbors. There is no chance to build a house for the people of Israel under these circumstances. The entire world will finally agree with this fact. While the state of Israel exists, the world has reached the conclusion that we should not be here in this land any longer since we have become a burden for humanity.

Have we really come to this land to create a “warm nest” for ourselves? “So, find another place!” – we are told. “You know how to settle down anywhere!”

Conquering the land of Israel after the exodus from Egypt is quite different. At that time, we had to come here to become “the light for the nations,” to build the Temple (literally – the House of Sanctity), i.e., to reach unity that conveys the Light.

What are we giving to the world at this time? What do we waste our uniqueness for? The nations of the world expect different actions from us.

Question: Where does the worldwide pressure push us?

Answer: The pressure comes from the upper force, the power of unity, the overall force of nature that acts on inanimate, vegetative, and animate levels. At this time, this force has to penetrate into the “thickness” of the speaking level and then merge with the rest of humanity. We are the “plug” that prevents It from doing this. This is the root of all troubles and wars that happen in the world. They are meant to address us.

Let’s hope that we will finally understand this language. Our predestination is to open the path for the Light and become “the light for the nations.” Only then will there be peace for us.
