Baal HaSulam, “The Last Generation,” Part 1, Section 12: However, a secular return such as today’s does not impress the nations whatsoever, and we must fear lest they will sell Israel’s independence for their needs…
Question: Does it follow that if the Jews don’t realize the program of the last generation, then they will sell the independence of Israel for their personal needs?
Answer: Recognition of the independence of Israel was a very interesting action because Israel was founded by the nations of the world. In its day, through the decision by the United Nations, the possibility was given to the Jewish people to return to their historical birthplace. If the nations of the world did not want this, nothing would have happened. This was done intentionally from above through the forces of nature so that the nations of the world, without understanding it themselves, would themselves lay the foundation for their future correction.
The people of Israel had to return to this land and realize itself as a united people and then, as it is written in the Torah, it could become a Light to the nations, meaning that it would show them an example of how it is necessary to properly cooperate mutually internally and externally.
The world is waiting for this from us. But if the wait is too long, then the backlash will begin again. For example, if I wait for a good attitude from some person, for love, for mutual cooperation, for a good heart, but instead of this get disrespect and disdain from him, then what appears in me is something from a sharp antipathy to real hatred, which is commonly called anti-Semitism.
So, if we don’t want to realize our true individuality, meaning the unity, that no one besides us can accomplish, to show the world and to teach it, then the anti-Semitism and hatred toward us will continue to grow more and more. This will bring a new annihilation, a new Holocaust. This is programmed in nature; we have no choice! On the other hand, to the contrary, if the people will understand that we exist to unite and that it is up to us to give an example of this to the whole world so that following this it will go and also reach unity, then in this manner we will discover the higher power in our world.
We find some kind of elevator for ourselves that will bring us up to the next level of existence where we exist in adhesion and in the merger of our souls into one single soul in which the higher power and the new method for our existence called the “upper world” is revealed that is eternal and perfect, which is not connected in any form to our physical body. The body is given to us only so that we can realize the connection between us. If we begin to unite today, without putting this off until tomorrow, we immediately will feel that we are causing some kind of positive response from the higher nature. This is what we must and can do.
