Question: For the people of Israel, the discovery of the wisdom of Kabbalah is connected to their responsibility to the world. Will they want this?
Answer: The Creator leads a person to a group and to this type of decision through suffering. The suffering is caused by the fact that either you are searching to discover something by yourself or you are pushed and prodded from behind through all kinds of troubles and problems so that you at least will flee from them in the opposite direction if you cannot solve them.
So we turn to people who are in distress, in considerable trouble. In the past, the Jews already received enough examples of what can happen with them. It is only necessary to open their eyes a bit, without frightening them, but explaining, with the help of facts, where the hatred of the world comes from and what we are obliged and need to give to it. The entire “infrastructure” required for this work is already prepared, and the work itself is incumbent upon us.
We only need to build our message without wasting time and go out with it to people as quickly as possible. Our future depends upon this.
