Question from Facebook: I thought that you would know the future from the height of the spiritual worlds because, time doesn’t exist for the upper Light and everything is determined from the start. If so, how is what you say, “It could be, otherwise it will be bad”, and so forth, to be interpreted?
Answer: Even though the future seems absolutely precise, the wisdom of Kabbalah explains that it is possible to reach it in two different ways. One of the ways is the long way of suffering, of searching, blows, and world wars. The second way is rapid, easy, pleasant, and airy. We are found between them now, and it is up to us to choose one of them. Ultimately, the result will be identical.
But either we accept our future in a nice and rapid way, or unfortunately, the opposite. I say, “Otherwise it will be bad” because along with a good possibility, a bad possibility also exists. This is our freedom of choice. The choice is not about the final goal, but how we will achieve it.
