Answer: What makes these people eternal is the connection with the Creator, called the “point in the heart.” The Jews have a desire to connect to the upper force. When it binds to the Creator, it activates the mechanism by which Light can be brought to the nations of the world.
Now, we have no means to give Light to other nations, therefore, they don’t believe that the Jews have something good. Subconsciously, they feel that the people of Israel bring them misfortune. Therefore, the nations of the world don’t like the people of Israel, ostensibly for no reason. This hatred is above their nature since, in fact, it comes from a higher degree than ours.
The eternal point in the heart is a desire to reveal the upper force and connect with it.
Question: What if I am a Jew, but I don’t feel the desire to connect with the upper force? Am I connected with eternity or not?
Answer: So, I am going to receive blows until I feel this point within me. It is a desire that leads to the question about the meaning of life: “What do I live for? What is happening in this world?”
This is not a philosophical question because it is about the relationship with an upper force from which come all of the desires and all of the disclosures. I am asking about something that is above my success in this world. This world and my success in it doesn’t interest me because I am asking about the eternal process that happens in the universe and above it, beyond time, motion, and space, about happened before our birth and what happens after death.
I discover that our stay here is not limited by the animalistic existence that depends on whether the body is alive or dead. I develop a craving, an aspiration, to the upper degree, to eternity.
The point in the heart is the connection with the upper force, the general force of nature, and it exists in all people, not just the Jews, because the Jews mingled with the peoples of the world during the years in exile. However, the strongest points exist in these people who once came with Abraham from ancient Babylon, then built the temple, went into exile after its destruction, and exist to this day.
Question: Does the fact that the Jewish people survived and continue to exist prove that they indeed are chosen by the Creator?
Answer: It is a historical fact that the Jewish people went through the centuries, despite all attempts to destroy them. Although these people are not numerous, this mere fact is not proof.
The proof comes from the revelation of our connection with the Creator, which offers the connection of the Jews with all of humanity as well as their duty to connect with the upper force so that, through them, this force would pass to all of the nations of the world.
From the animate level, where we exist today in our biological bodies, engaged only in servicing them, we rise to the degree of man. A man, Adam, means similar (Domeh) to the upper force in love and bestowal. In order to do so, we connect as one man in one heart and become included in the desires of each other, reaching the love of our neighbor as ourselves.
If there is at least a little more love for each other inside the Jewish nation, then this nation, as well as the rest of humanity, will begin to feel themselves as living in the upper dimension together with the Creator. On the one hand, the people of Israel connect with the Creator and, on the other hand, with all of humanity, and the upper force fills all of us with its Light. In this way, we become eternal and perfect as it is.
The upper force is the fulfillment that transmits its energy to us and gives all of the inhabitants of this world an infinite and beautiful existence. Today, the Jewish people are eternal only by virtue of their mission, and then the entire world will become eternal according to the final result of development.
