Question: Do we see that there was a need for the way of suffering only so that toward the end of the 20th century humanity would say, “We have reached a blind alley, there is nothing left to investigate?”
Answer: Humanity doesn’t even look at its history. Now it simply gathers sensations and emotions that lead it to the understanding that it is impossible to advance further this way.
We have become locked in and have begun to perceive each other as ourselves. What happens in South America, Australia, Asia, or Africa, all of this exists within me. Each one of us sees on what is happening at the other end of the world television. Each one of us has become a man of the world. We are beginning to feel ourselves as one large and closed society in which we are completely dependent on one another.
Imagine if a nuclear accident occurred at some nuclear power plant or a nuclear submarine exploded somewhere or some deadly virus spread, it would be bad for everyone. One incident like this would be enough, and everything would begin to die. Today, we depend on each other so much that, against our will, we are becoming linked as one family.
How can we make people understand their dependence on everyone else so that they can rise to the level of a single family? After all, it is impossible to solve this through war?
We have a a situation in the world, like in a family, where the couple hasn’t loved each other for many years. They consider each other as strangers, and because of their egos, they don’t want to forgive, to indulge, to provide for and serve each other. As a result of this, they divorce. That is the way 50% to 60% of the population behaves. But they cannot get divorced! Give us another Earth so that all of those who are dissatisfied would go and live there. Impossible! This means that the only thing that is left to do is to educate people.
This is precisely what the wisdom of Kabbalah was talking about thousands of years ago, “Wait! A time like this will come, and in the meantime I am hiding myself from you.” That is how it quietly ducked down and concealed itself, and now it is beginning to emerge and assert itself, “Here is the method for you with whose help you can attain the right and perfect state for yourself without wars.”
The wisdom of Kabbalah spoke about this for all these thousands of years, only it could not be revealed to people, just like you can’t give an atomic bomb. Everything must be in its time, and now the time has come.
