How Should One Respond To Evil?
Question: How should a person who studies the wisdom of Kabbalah behave with people who do evil? Should he intervene and stop them?
Answer: Everything is given to man for him to see how the evil in our world is common and how it could be balanced with good. As a general rule, this doesn’t work directly. If you truly want to make a correction, you must participate in a group that is involved with connection between its members and thus attracts the Ohr Makif (Surrounding Light). This Light creates the correct opposition to the forces of evil.
Question: How must a Kabbalist respond if he witnesses violence or fraud?
Answer: First of all, he must understand that this has been given to him for correction, and only if he develops the right intention can he act to change the situation. This is possible if a person clearly understands that everything comes from the Creator. The Creator is now showing this on the internal “screen” of a person, in the back of the brain, while the person doesn’t have to react to the apparent urge, but to the same reality that is portrayed by the higher forces.
With lies and fraud it is preferable not to do anything but try to correct this on your internal level. We must counter the egoistic force with the altruistic force. If this is found within you, then you will be able to help correct the situation. If not, nothing will succeed.
