Question: Are people today more inclined to kind of events that bring people together and promote advancing toward resembling the Creator? Or can we expect the Creator may send us the option to reach Him through the “stick” toward happiness?
Answer: Humanity is in a precarious state. People understand that the future doesn’t hold anything good. Moreover, these problems are increasing in ecology, climate changes, etc, things that we suddenly cannot impact. In other words, we feel helpless in the face of the problems that we encounter. What can we do if instead of high temperatures in the 100’s, temperatures exceed 140 degrees?
Air conditioners will not help. Everything will fail.
We are gradually beginning to feel powerless before nature. In the past we believed that we would surely conquer it, but today we see the opposite is true. We, in fact it, are its hostages. The question is: What we can do and can we influence it?
It turns out that we can, but only in a positive way. Not by doing whatever we want to, but only by behaving properly. By closing ourselves into integrated, correct, good relationships with each other, we become the highest part of nature, and from this level can influence it. But only on condition that we will behave properly.
This is what the wisdom of Kabbalah tells us. The right thoughts and the right actions between people affect nature. Those who don’t want to understand that don’t have to, but then they will advance toward happiness by the stick.
Nature has a very simple way of affecting man through disasters, then a person immediately feels small, helpless and trembles with fear. And we all have the chance to feel that when nature forces us to start changing ourselves to bring us into balance.
Question: Can we explain to a person on the corporeal level that his positive thoughts can stop a storm, an epidemic, or a terrible heat wave?
Answer: Thought is the most powerful force in our world!
There is nothing we can do about it. We have already mentioned how scientists today are becoming increasingly more internal, penetrating the finest levels of nature.
We once reported the number of tons of steel or iron produced or that we placed a certain number of tanks on the borders. No one needs that now. The world has changed and has become more virtual. Wars are conducted by other means. Life must also be different.
Our thoughts are the most serious force, and many governments already realize that. They have built whole systems to engage in that.
But we are talking about how humanity should correct the world. And this is possible only through the method of the wisdom of Kabbalah.
