New Life #570 – Social Frustration
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz
If we thought there were some kind of anchor in Israel to rely on, today we see corruption is ubiquitous. There is general frustration and it is good that we have come to this. It reveals a truth that was not clear to us before.
Everything has become rotten from the ground up. Every politician promises, “I will fix it for you/for all of you/for myself,” and it is clear that he will not be able to do anything.
You cannot say that there is a loss of direction, for in fact there never has been a nation on the right path. The only way possible in Israel is the way of “And you shall love your friend as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18) and mutual responsibility.
The positive change that is hoped for can happen only through a change in the person. Corrected people build a corrected society. Only through connection between us will we discover the force of good, the power of love, that can correct everything.
A general social education is required for the people of Israel, an education for connection and mutual love. Without this we are not a people. Since the destruction of the Temple, unfounded hatred has been destroying us. “And you shall love your friend as yourself” is our only future. Even if this sounds naïve, the forces of nature are directing us toward that. That is what the wisdom of Kabbalah teaches us.
