Answer: A person’s upper roots determine where he is born. We have no right to intervene because we don’t know how and what will happen, so we don’t need to guess about anything regarding this matter. Whatever is supposed to happen to a person is what will happen to him.
Question: How can I discover where my true home is and whether I should live wherever I was born?
Answer: You should feel where it is best for you to fulfill yourself in spiritual connection, but don’t do anything because there is a group in a certain place or anything like that. If you attain a certain spiritual state, you will be led from that place onward as I have been led. My teacher did not allow me to move closer to him for two years.
Therefore, I advise you not to rush. Today, thanks to the Internet and other means of communication, you can tranquilly remain where you are and advance in the spiritual sense, and later you will see where this takes you.
Come to the convention and see what you can do with yourself, and how you can tighten the connection with others because it is only through the connection between us that you will discover your future.
Question: Have the upper forces created the Africans with dark skin so that they will be able to adapt to the hot climate?
Answer: No, it depends on the four phases of Direct Light (Hochma, Bina, Zeir Anpin and Malchut) not because they have black skin, Native Americans have red skin, Asians yellow skin, and Europeans white skin. It is all conditional.
In fact, it relates only to the spiritual root because everything descends from the top downward. People in Africa are not black because the sun shines much more strongly there, but because it is inherent in the spiritual root. This means that all of the lower phenomena stem from one upper cause.
Question: Is it possible to save the Dead Sea by connecting it to the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea? Should we save it?
Answer: It is indeed possible. Personally, I believe that this can be taken into account if it is done automatically by valves or taps. Sea water must be added to the Dead Sea since the water that flows from the Kinneret is not enough to fill it.
Question: Can a person affect external natural phenomena such as stopping the motion of the sun, for example, by changing his internal attributes?
Answer: Such things are described in the Torah, but this is absolutely unrealistic. No one engages in that. I don’t advise you to think in this direction.
Question: Should we try to look at everything according to the perception that time, motion, and place do not exist on the outside, but are only reflected from a person outward?
Answer: No, you cannot act that way all the time because you are not on this level of attainment. Gradually, however, everything will be revealed and become familiar inside of you, and you will look at all of reality tranquilly from the side.
Question: If nature responds to a person’s negative actions, does that mean that even the actions of a single individual invoke problems, discomfort, and troubles?
Answer: Of course, for each and every one of us.
Question: What is a real goal? Must everyone find it by himself according to the method of Kabbalah?
Answer: Yes, we clarify the real goal throughout our lives and even during more than one lifetime of spiritual development. The moment we arrive at our complete fulfillment, we will be able to say that we have attained our goal, that we understand and perceive that “Now, I am finally in the goal of creation.”
