We live in a special time when the entire world is going through very big and rapid changes. What used to happen in a decade some fifty or a hundred years ago now happens in a year. Each person feels as if caught in a cycle of constantly changing and moving events.
Today here are almost no people in the world who would not be affected by the ongoing changes. They have reached even the most remote areas and small villages. As Kabbalists explain, this is a sign that the world is approaching the general correction.
This is why we organize international Kabbalah conventions that symbolize the entire world wishing to unite. Thousands of people of various nationalities and cultures come from all over the world in order to connect together.
The only remaining obstacle is language. If we do not speak the same language, it is difficult to communicate because we are still in Babylon. The ancient Babylonians started with one language, then began to speak different languages, and as a result, ceased to understand each other. We, accordingly, have to come from many languages to one.
It is when I sit with unfamiliar people with different mentality, the shattering, which occurred in the ancient Babylon and is being revealed only today, manifests even more clearly. This will further push us to unite. After all, we have to return to Babylon so that the entire world becomes one village.
At the convention, we feel as if the former Babylonians gathered from all over the world in order to unite back into one people, one humanity. Now we need to do the very same work that Abraham wanted to do in ancient Babylon. He did not succeed back then because the evil still had to be revealed.
But three and a half thousand years have passed since, and during this time the evil has gradually become revealed more and more. As a result, it reached such a scale that the whole world began to realize what slough of despond it finds itself in. Therefore, now it is ready to begin to unite.
