It is already clear to everyone that the nature of a person is egoistic and even the most merciful acts are committed by us for our own pleasure, otherwise we wouldn’t do them. It is impossible to approach egoism in order to change it, after all, it is nature that lies in our foundation.
If we try to limit it, then after all our tricks it will eventually grow even more. Every time we touch egoism, it increases; such a terrible monster lurks within us. You touch it lightly and it grows, touch it a little more, and it grows more. You want to destroy it, grab it, and it grows again! So, what can we do?
Only the force that created egoism can correct it. That is, we need not limit the egoistic desire itself; we need to turn to the force that created egoism and affect it through this force. Only then we can succeed. That is, we don’t destroy egoism and don’t grow it, but we want to manage it.
If egoism is our entire nature, then it is obvious that nothing can be done directly with it. However, the method of Kabbalah gives us the possibility of an alternative way: to turn to the force that created egoism and limit it through this force. Then we can become our own masters.
Otherwise, we can’t cope with our egoism. Egoism is our congenital disease, a kind of kleptomania. There were cases when rich, famous people suffered from kleptomania, a painful craving for theft. A woman comes into the store and steals a small spoon or some other small thing. It is a disease, so she can’t stop herself.
It is the same for a person based in egoism, who can’t cope with his desire to receive. If we tie his hands, he will try to grasp with his teeth. Such is our nature. People think that it is possible to overcome their egoistic desire. Yet this isn’t so. You can only offer it more favorable compensation. For example, a person wants to lose weight and look beautiful is ready to starve for this.
But it doesn’t mean he overcame his desire for food. He simply replaced this small egoistic desire to eat and enjoy food with a stronger egoistic desire to be slender. The desire itself hasn’t changed, only the use of it has.
Therefore, humanity must understand that it can’t do without the method of Kabbalah, otherwise the most developed countries will move to Nazism. Baal HaSulam wrote in the book The Last Generation that in the process of development, liberals and socialists suddenly turn into Nazis:.
“It turns out that the world erroneously considers Nazism a particular offshoot of Germany. In truth, it is the offshoot of a democracy and socialism that were left without religion, manners, and justice. Thus, all the nations are equal in that; there is no hope at all that Nazism will perish with the victory of the allies, for tomorrow the Anglo-Saxons will adopt Nazism, since they, too, live in a world of democracy and Nazism. ”
According to the way democrats behave today in the US, it is the beginning of Nazism. After all, if the president was elected legally, he must be given an opportunity to act and govern the state. But the Democrats disagree with this and are doing everything to prevent it. The same soon will happen in Europe.
The problem isn’t in a specific person, but in the approach. The society has developed and matured in order to turn into a Nazi society.
Question: Does it mean that there is no way out, since it is impossible to change people’s egoistic nature?
Answer: There is a way out! There is a tool called the Returning Light, which is the upper Light, that is able to correct a person’s egoism. People need to know this. The most important thing is the recognition of evil. If Democrats remained in power, the world would inevitably come to a war. At the end of its term, Obama’s administration began to talk about a world war openly as about something inevitable.
Today, when Trump came to power, the war is already forgotten, and the situation began to calm down. However, this doesn’t suit left-wing parties.
