#Fukuyama: #Democracy has gone wrong.
Well how else can it go if it is but freely developing egoism? Hence it leads to ego’s development and disintegration of families, nations, etc. into constituent parts. Next: realization of #egoism as evil and its correction by #Kabbalah.
Baal HaSulam, Letter 9: “To this day I wish to do this difficult work, and I am ready to undertake it even for 70 years in a row, even without seeing any success in it, and devote all the days of my life to it ….
… only to be sure that I am following the path of adhesion with the Creator, which I came to know earlier.”
Baal HaSulam, Letter 32: “The Creator is in the heart of every person who aspires to Him. But that is from His side. What, then, does man lack? Only to know this. Because knowing this completes everything and leads to perfection.”
How close is the Creator to you? As much as you turn to Him and are close to Him. Since He is the one evoking these feelings in you. So do everything to turn His attention to you. The Creator is your shadow. Try to feel His work on you in everything …
… Avodat HaShem, the Creator’s work.

Question: What is the path of Kabbalah?
Answer: The path of Kabbalah is the middle line.
The left line is the path of egoism and the right line is the path of bestowal. We cannot move in either one because both of these lines come from above. They are the forces of our development, and we are arranged so as to correctly combine them with each other.
The ability to combine the right and left lines and move in the middle line is the result of all our efforts.

New Life 151 – Socioeconomic Gaps
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz
Happiness is really a divine product. We all have a much higher standard of living than we had 50 years ago but there is no joy. We are divided, distant, and alienated from one another. The growing human ego demands something new. We haven’t yet digested what it is. We can’t fill ourselves and are no longer satisfied with material attainments, no matter how wealthy we are. Technology frees most of us from the need to work and yet, we are left without much of a reason for living alone. The source of the new happiness is found on the social level of human life. We lack warmth and heart-to-heart connection like a child in his mother’s lap. We used to live in a family and today we need to us to embrace the whole world as family. The gaps between us will remain but the feeling of family and mutual concern will soon be awakened between everyone.

Answer: The Creator is good that does good to the ones who feel it. There is no favoritism here as if to someone He is good and to someone else bad. He presents the same conditions for everyone.
It is just that each of us has his or her own individual soul and depending on its development, a person feels the influence of the Creator. Perhaps this impact is still quite neutral and distant, which does not particularly bother him, and therefore, he does not ask such questions. Nevertheless, everything that people do, they do only under the influence of the Creator.
There are people who already feel that it comes from someone and they begin to search.
And there are those who already reveal who causes all these sensations and movements in them, who controls them. Thus, through their inner work, they attain the Creator.
