Answer: Let’s adapt the wisdom of Kabbalah to our world and use it! After all, egoistic competition happens in the world from childhood to adulthood. For our entire lives, it is hell, a continuous struggle from which we have no benefit, only the gloating of our ego when we revel in our superiority over another.
We must use our earthly life that has been given to us to try to balance it, change it. We give birth, raise, and educate a child not to gratify his own ego, but to transform children into people who can enjoy life in peace and not constantly be defensive.
The wisdom of Kabbalah explains how to do this.
To do this, we must use a system of connections between people, and above all of our egoistic rejections and contradictions, we can build bridges of mutual connection toward love.
We can do this while being egoists as nature created us; above this nature, we can build mutual altruistic connections. It depends only on education! If we educate a generation like this, it will be happy and strong indeed.
It seems to us that altruism could weaken us and that, ultimately, we could be eaten, annihilated, or devoured, but it is precisely the opposite. Love is the most powerful feeling in the world, and it provides the people who realize it with immense inner strength.
The United States can serve as an example of how the growth of the ego and pitting oneself against others weakens and leads to crisis.
If our method of unification were in Europe, today it would be stronger and more advanced than everyone else.
An aspiration toward unity, toward mutual attraction, lies in nature and we should take advantage of this power. It creates more and more new forms of matter and of everything that exists, while separation only destroys and kills.
Therefore, the wisdom of Kabbalah is imperative for us.
