All our reality is entirely subjected to law, and according to the wisdom of Kabbalah, is controlled by the only law of the upper force called nature. We also call this higher power the Creator because it indeed created the entire universe.
The nature of this force is to act solely for the benefit of its creations; that is, it is absolutely good. But if we don’t see it, this is only because we do not understand the Creator.
Kabbalists, that is, people investigating the upper nature, reveal its complete goodness. And even ordinary researchers of nature see that although everyone devours another one in it, it is all subject to special laws and ultimately benefits the general development of all created beings.
Modern science reveals that nature is global and integrated, and everything in it is absolutely interconnected. Nothing can come out of the framework of this integral system. Like in a healthy human body, all its cells and systems work in harmony preparing it for a higher goal that is above ordinary bodily existence. We find this law in all forms of nature and on all its levels.
It turns out that knowledge of these laws is the key to our successful existence. After all, if inanimate matter, plants, and animals act according to instincts, that is, they feel the orders of nature and perform them unconsciously, in humans, it is much more complicated.
We do not know how to act. Our instincts are not strong enough to guarantee our correct behavior while being guided only by them. And all this is because a human is a social being, and this is where all our difficulties emerge from. After all, in everything that relates to the social order, instincts no longer work. They are no longer regulated by nature.
Desires for food, sex, and family are more or less understandable and do not cause us problems. But in everything that concerns society, that is, in the desire for wealth, power, and knowledge, we are very much confused. Internal instincts do not tell us how to properly act in them.
Desires for food, sex, and family belong to the animal level, and therefore, we can rely on them in our natural instincts, which are also inherent as in all other animals.
But with respect to purely human desires, we have to find the right direction for our development; otherwise, both money and power, and knowledge turn out to be the cause of all our troubles. It is due to the profound development of our mind that we invent the weapons of our own destruction.
In all of his previous centuries old history, man developed instinctively, like an animal. Our egoism always pushed us forward and everything was quite simple. After all, development went in a natural way, step by step, from one formation to another: slavery, feudalism, capitalism, as egoism grew.
But today the time has come when our ego finished its development and ceased to be the engine of evolution. It seems to admit that it reached its top and there is nowhere else to go. Therefore, everything comes into the process of stagnation: science, production, young people not wanting to get married and have children. There is a general fatigue because inside a person feels that he does not have an answer to the main question: “What do I live for?”
After all, throughout all the past millennia we knew what direction we were developing toward and our egoism did not require more than possible. It had very real needs: a good family, a profession, children, and money and we developed according to these requirements. But today our desire to enjoy has stopped its linear growth, and that’s the problem.
In fact, this process began five hundred years ago, in the Ari’s time: the desire ceased to simply grow and it began to “wind up.” All parts of the desire relating to inanimate, vegetative, and animate nature have evolved to a certain level and must begin to unite in the correct form.
That is, now we need to get connected. If we connect correctly with each other, then we will achieve the property of bestowal, which is the property of the Creator, and therefore, we will reveal the common force of nature between us. This power is revealed precisely in the properly corrected connections between us.
