Question: When reading Baal HaSulam manuscript The Last Generation, we feel that there is a treasure in them—instructions how to build the future society. How can we understand it correctly to study and present it to other people?
Answer: The problem is that Baal HaSulam these manuscripts wrote for himself; they are not systematized enough and repeat themselves in many respects. He was making sketches from time to time, but didn’t bring them to any order.
Rabash said that Baal HaSulam considered his generation still not ready for correction, and therefore he stopped writing. After all, his newspaper was closed and it was forbidden to print his writings.
I understand your desire, but you should also understand me. It is based on Kabbalah; I can say that this is an absolutely practical science! Although it seems like mysticism where some Sefirot, Partzufim, and worlds are supposedly spinning, this is the most practical science! It completely depends on the inner state of the people studying it.
Therefore, I don’t know to what extent we can develop the topic of “The Last Generation.” Perhaps, we can do it in a very limited form since we need to reach this individually by ourselves. We’ll try to do this.
I understand your enthusiasm. Perhaps it can help us. But you need to understand that I get up every morning, which starts for me at midnight, and I begin to study. I come to the audience without knowing at what level the lesson, the discussion, or the questions will be; it doesn’t depend on me.
I can’t reveal more than how I feel the desire of the people, their needs, and their ability to at least partially absorb the material. If they can absorb at least ten percent of what I am saying among them, it means that I can already speak and I invest a hundred percent. Otherwise, I can’t.
Therefore, despite your strong desire to describe the instruction of “The Last Generation,” if the audience doesn’t have such a desire, I find it difficult to do so.
So far we haven’t reached this. But I am an optimist, I am always ready.
