Adam discovered the secret of life 5,776 years ago and the fact that man can discover the upper world while living in this world. He taught it to his students, and twenty generations later, Abraham came along and completed the teachings of Adam and turned it into a method that was vital to all of mankind in his days.
Abraham was the first who actually implemented the teachings of Adam. He gathered the ancient Babylonians around him and told them the reason that their life was so difficult and why there were so many problems after the building of the Tower of Babel when people ceased to understand one another.
Abraham said that it was possible to rise above our ego and build a wonderful life for everyone because this method enables us to get closer to one another. People understood that their life would be better if they treated each other more nicely, but they couldn’t overcome the hatred they felt.
Abraham’s group that implemented the method grew and became known as Israel. 1,500 years from the time of Abraham until the destruction of the Temple people live in the attainment of the upper force while living in this world, having acquired the upper spiritual life.
They lived according to the law of “Love thy neighbor as thyself,” but the time came when they fell from this high level and instead of brotherly love, felt unfounded hatred toward one another. This is called the destruction of the Temple.
If the nation of Israel unites again, they will feel as if they live in Paradise. This is possible, and there is no need to die in order to achieve that. We simply need to connect according to the method of the wisdom of Kabbalah, which is very simple. Let’s do it, and let’s all live a wonderful, peaceful life, a secure and tranquil life.
Question: It is hard to believe that the nation of Israel can unite because it is the most divided nation with many different streams and factions.
Answer: This division is typical of the nation of Israel because the advantage of Light from darkness is revealed. We are so hostile toward one another because we must feel how much we need the method of connection and unity, which means the wisdom of Kabbalah.
The wisdom of Kabbalah speaks about nothing but connection and unity. All of the holidays, customs, and the commandments of the Torah are about the connection and unity among us.
Yom Kippur symbolizes the dissemination of the method of correction all over the world. After all, the nation of Israel is obliged to be “a Light to all the nations,” first to connect with each other and then lead the unification of the entire world.
