Question: The issue of unity and connection has never been so dominant. Even the parents of the three boys who were kidnapped last year keep saying how much power they received from the unity and felt that their problem was everyone’s problem. So why is the unity we feel among the people these days not as strong as it was before?
Answer: We simply see the lack of connection in a much higher resolution and in much greater accuracy. Instead of what previously seemed correct, the scale has become greater now and we see that there is no connection at present.
Question: How can we prove to a person that outcomes, such as the kidnappings, can be changed by actions of connection?
Answer: You want to show a person a clear and direct connection and that if he brings about connection in a certain place, it will lead to connection in another place. You will never be able to do that.
But there are many cases in life when we are sure that our actions help although we don’t see a direct connection. Therefore, people go out to demonstrate and attend public meetings. I cannot show a person the connection between things that he cannot perceive with his senses, since this is the revelation of the Creator’s actions to the created being. He has not yet reached such a level since he doesn’t have the senses that allow him to see that.
There can be a very level headed, rational person who is not carried away by emotions and who can say that all these actions of connection are totally useless and that the search for the kidnapped boys was a military matter and that it had nothing to do with him. If he didn’t feel any connection to that, there is nothing we could do. In order to see the connection, he has to correct his desires so that they are in order to bestow and then he will discover within them to what extent the upper Light is related to these desires. Therefore, we must simply draw these people to connection through different explanations that show them that the connection is beneficial and that through this, we could have helped free the boys and help them get back home safely.
If a person agrees to participate in a workshop, we have to make him feel that a special force awakens in the connection between us and that it can do something beyond our ordinary nature. It can change the current situation. When a person feels the force of connection, it will impress him beyond his current level. We can explain that we are all connected to one another, that we are all in one system, that all of humanity is connected and that if you correct yourself, you insert the force of correction into everyone.
In fact, before the revelation, it is impossible to prove anything to a person, but we see that people study for years and don’t leave due to the expectation for the revelation. They believe that the revelation will occur sometime since an illumination from a distance sustains them. A person who has participated in a workshop or a circle will also feel such an illumination from a distance. The feeling that these actions can really affect and change the situation awakens in him, since the Light operates on him.
There is hope. Otherwise I wouldn’t gather people. I am already committed to them this way and I make them my partners. I cannot show them the world the way I see it and they don’t know that we open the way for the Light that will fix everything. It will not only successfully solve problems such as kidnappings, but will also correct the whole world. We will ascend to the top, become more respected and actually become a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.
