Answer: With kindness. Not surprisingly, after 2,000 years of concealment, the wisdom of Kabbalah is revealed with difficulty, acquiring rivals who are united in their absolute ignorance of the subject.
Therefore I have decided to lead with an “educational program” of the wisdom of Kabbalah with answers so that those who speak out against it will understand the essence of their objections and opposition.
The answers are not mine but those of great Kabbalists. If they want to understand at least somewhat, of course.
The wisdom of Kabbalah includes all of creation within it, the upper worlds and our lowest world with everything that fills them. Moreover this entire structure is not discovered in parts but completely together, but its scale goes and grows gradually through 125 levels.
Therefore, to talk about Kabbalah can only comprehending the upper world, not comprehending at all can not imagine anything!
Therefore, only someone who attains the upper world can speak about the wisdom of Kabbalah, and someone who hasn’t attained it cannot comprehend anything at all, and cannot imagine anything. He can’t understand even one word of what is written in the books of the wisdom of Kabbalah. Even if he has studied it for 20 years, but has not achieved the revelation of the upper world, he does not understand anything in Kabbalah.
But our age is amazing! It turns out that all are well versed in this science. It does not matter if he is a believer or not—on television they broadcast programs about amulets, charms, red strings, symbols for success, and say that it is the wisdom of Kabbalah, and even the Orthodox Jews. As far as it seems, it is in this way that the wisdom about the coming level of humanity is being revealed..
Question: Does critical thinking help a person ascend the spiritual ladder, or does it stand in his way? Should get rid of it?
Answer: Everything in a person was created for a reason. There is no need to destroy, humiliate, delete, lock, or hide anything. On the contrary, open everything up, but only so that it will help you advance spiritually. Eventually, you will see that it is a wonderful, extraordinary opportunity to use all of the nastiest, terrible natural or acquired impulses about which it is shameful to speak. You will fell how right and necessary they are. You suddenly will be able to fulfill them in a sublime, spiritual manner.

Answer: Cancer is a cellular system gone out of control. In principle, all of our cells can become cancerous. Functioning correctly and in balance, each cell both absorbs and gives. It absorbs everything required for its own functioning, but it functions only to strengthen and support the entire system of the body.
The main role of the cell is to work for the benefit of the others, and it only receives for itself that which it needs in its existence for the sake of others. That is how all of the systems in nature operate, except for humans, and our minds.
So as soon as we begin to think only about ourselves, our system starts slowly being “impressed” by our thoughts and desires, and so the same program is excited at the cellular level then the system begins to devour everything for themselves without giving the others anything. This is the principle of the formation of a cancerous tumor.
We swallow everything for ourselves, and that is how humanity becomes a cancerous tumor on the body of the Earth. Our planet is wonderful, but we see what is happening on the levels of the still, vegetative and animate. Everything preys on everything else, and it all is derived from the human level.
Even in the Torah, it is said that, from the moment that Adam sinned, everyone began to devour each other, and before then everything existed in harmony. Since the sin of Adam, the cancerous tumor began to spread, and ultimately we have reached a state in which humanity is devouring itself.
Question: Based upon this explanation, is it possible to find a cure for cancer?
Answer: Certainly, but not on the level in which we exist. Every problem is solved on a level higher than the level in which the problem itself is found. From there a signal comes down that instructs the lower level. Therefore, it is up to us to solve the problem of our relationships with one another.
Once the relationships between people become mutual, beneficial, and humane and we are connected into one beneficial system, then all of the systems found on a lower level, and our heart and intellect, will return to normal, and everything that exists on Earth will calm down. As it is written, “And a wolf shall live with a lamb, and a leopard shall lie with a kid; and a calf and a lion cub and a fatling [shall lie] together, and a small child shall lead them” (Isaiah 11:6), and everything will exist in harmony.

Question: For the first time in a decade, the number of rich people in the world is declining. The number of people with capital of $30 million or more has declined in one year by 5,500. Do you believe that this trend will grow?
Answer: Of course. It doesn’t mean that humanity will become poorer but that the number of rich people will decrease and their wealth will increase. If I am a rich man and I own ships, railroads, banks, factories, and so forth, would I be interested that others be on the same level? No, on the contrary, I want them to be the most ordinary people who eat what they have earned today and who have nothing tomorrow so that they will depend on me.
Question: Is this what a rich person wants with regard to another rich person?
Answer: Of course. Therefore, it is natural that the number of rich people in the world will decrease, but each one’s wealth will be greater. Thus, 99.9999 percent of the planet’s population will be poor, since all will be concentrated in the hands of one or two thousand people.
Question: Is this natural from a Kabbalistic perspective?
Answer: Yes, it is so natural that there will be only one rich person left, and all of the others will be absolutely poor. This is called the natural evolution of the ego. The question is, what will happen then, and at what point will the rebellion below start? But I think there will not be revolutions or wars since humanity already has been through this phase.
People are nearing the phase of maturation and ripeness. Their grapes of wrath regarding the Creator, the nature, the fate of everything, have ripened, and that is a good thing because people are beginning to realize that it is actually man who must change and that we will not be able to do anything any other way. We don’t need to change nature, society or anything. Everything depends on individuals and on the way that they are connected to each other. Only the connection between them can change society.
People are beginning to realize that they need a qualitative change, and they will look for it until they find our method. I believe that this phase is coming soon because all of the other options already have been exhausted. No one has any reasonable solution, not philosophers, politicians, political scientists, economists, or others. This is the reason that we Kabbalists should come forth and loudly proclaim that we have the solution, that by a special method of education that we have, we actually can make people feel and understand after a few lessons and special meetings that there is a special force here that can change our entire society.
There is everything in the world, and the problem is only in distributing the resources. The distribution can be right only according to the right connection between people which we must organize. The right and good connection should be a connection in which everyone is simply equal, and then everyone will feel good.

New Life #348 – Peace In Israel And In The World
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz
Why can’t we have peace? How is this related to the fact that the world is always against us and what is the role of Israel in the world?
If we live a life of love and connection in Israel, everything around us will quiet down and everyone will want to learn from us.
The whole world subconsciously feels that the key for a good life is in the hands of the Jews.
