Answer: We have to understand: All this is happening because we still do not complete creation.
Everywhere in the Kabbalistic books it is explained that we live in a unified system. The still, vegetative, animate, and human nature is one. And the first three levels, the still, vegetative, and animate, are engaged by nature instinctively.
People undergo the same process of development and as a result, they should become similar to the Creator, become as one man with one heart. It is written by the prophet Isaiah: “My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.”
The people of Israel are at the head of this process. It leads the whole world. Therefore, it is obliged to study the inner part of the Torah, as well as to make it available to all of humanity, starting with itself and then to all people. As Baal HaSulam writes in the article “Messiah’s Shofar,” before deliverance, the nations of the world have to learn about the correction, which is entrusted to the people of Israel. So, we have to disseminate the news about our work everywhere, explaining to everyone what the general system is and what we have to do.
So there is an interaction: We help nations, they help us, and all together we want to revive, to establish the broken network of our mutual connections.
Consequently, our troubles and misfortunes are a sign that we still do not have time to make the method of correction public. Hence, we need to feel a sense of our own guilt.
Indeed, everything depends on us. The “seventy nations of the world,” the seven billion people, except those fifteen million who are called “the people of Israel,” have no free will. As much as we attract the Light, as much as we broadcast the method of correction, to that extent it influences the others.
After all, every second Reshimot continue to intensify and change, even from the time of the breaking, preceding the worlds of BYA and lying in the basis of the birth of Adam HaRishon (First Man). The breaking includes all the vessels. And now we must affect the part called “the nations of the world.” It is impossible to reach correction without the people of Israel working in the current situation. This work should be shown and become clear to everyone. And we must realize it with all our efforts.
Therefore, all our groups, all the friends around the world, have to understand, as much as it is possible, they need to make their contribution, to accept our program of dissemination and implement it. If we can succeed in doing what is entrusted to us, then misfortunes will not outpace the reception of the medication. In other words, we must give people the medicine before they feel the symptoms of the disease. This is our work, and this principle is immutable.
Otherwise, there is nothing we can do about it. After all, today the situation is the same as in Poland and Germany before World War II. Then Kabbalists called the Jews to leave for the land of Israel to escape the massacre. However, no one wanted to hear them; those who stayed were killed.
At present, similar conditions are forming around the world, and Baal HaSulam writes about this possibility of a new world war, and so on. Moreover, even simple logic indicates that WWIII will break out here. If someone really wants to ignite the world, there is no hotter region: On the one hand, there are nuclear weapons, and on the other, there is a powerful external threat, leaving no room for a conventional war.
So far we have managed to stave off our enemies with conventional weapons. But in the long term, we will not be able to overcome them with conventional weapons. And then we will have no other choice, which, in fact, the whole world is awaiting. The American and European elites believe that in this way they will be able to get out of the global crisis, the fatality and mortality of which is still hidden from the eye.
So now we have to go toward the right correction, spreading the wisdom of Kabbalah in the world, so that everyone knows its message. Not everyone should study it; some are responsible for study and implementation, and others will join them. However, at least, to all the Jews in the world and to everyone who wants this, we must reveal all our materials and put them on the right path of development.
