Answer: The wisdom of Kabbalah helps us to reach good relations between us, because it enables man to elevate above his egoism. And although we are all egoistic and we see that we cannot get rid of the ego, Kabbalah enables a person to rise above it and manage it properly.
Therefore, with the help of the wisdom of Kabbalah, it is possible to attain correct mutual relations in the family, with children, in a collective, in a nation, in society, between countries, and in the world. This is a great system of corrections, which we need to absorb and adapt to.
Once it is at least partially realized between us, the world will start to look completely different. Even starting the realization of the method of elevation above the ego will rid the world of suffering, and then humanity will rise to the next degree.
The wisdom of Kabbalah is not training, coaching, or a psychology of correct relations between us, it is a method of man’s elevation above his beastly egoistic nature in order to achieve the next degree of his development, the degree in which we are above the limits of life or death, above everything that gives us negative feelings in life.
Question: What will happen with those that don’t feel the need to change?
Answer: It’s not important. People come to the wisdom of Kabbalah with different intentions. Some want to gain something in this life; others want to know how they can be more successful and happy. There are many people that think that with the help of Kabbalah they can broaden their understanding of their world, and in this manner succeed in science, art, and culture. Some think they can expand their view of the world, their mind and perception, and that it will help them to write better, to invent, and compose. And there are people that are truly asking the question: “What am I living for? I want to decipher the meaning of life, the secret of the existence of creation. Stars, endless universe, galaxies—what are all of these for, and me inside it? It couldn’t be that all of it exists for nothing.”
Once this question was hanging in the air. I remember that they taught us that the universe itself is endless; today when they talk about new revelations, scientists understand that the universe is not endless. So comes the simple question: “If it started at some point, then what will be after it is over? Does the universe have boundaries, then what exists beyond the boundaries?” Humanity does not have answers to these questions. But if those questions are formed in us, then it is possible to find answers for them.
