Question: Does the Creator not want us to live well?
Answer: The Creator wants us to live well on the highest, eternal, and most perfect level.
Question: To do this, do you need to reach the lowest level? After all, in the past humanity somehow progressed with egoism.
Answer: Humanity progressed by developing the ego; therefore, it felt that it was growing and developing. Now, the ego has developed and reached its final state. Baal HaSulam clearly felt that this is the last generation, and today we are in a process of the disintegration of egoism. It is only a matter of time.
I hope that in 2018 we will discover the complete inadequacy of egoism and the necessity to rise above it, and we will choose a completely new source of existence—bestowal.

Answer: Everything will change, but only as a result of good relations between us instead of the current selfish ones. Then we will see a completely new world. So, let’s direct our thoughts toward this together and see it in the new year!
