Holocaust Remembrance Day and Independence Day recently occurred in Israel while the country was under constant rocket fire from Gaza. The Creator gives us an opportunity to turn to Him and to awaken mercy from above. If we attribute all of reality to the Creator and to the correction of the world, we must try to see the process of correction in everything that happens. We certainly think of correction as a good life on the physical level, corporeal well-being, but in essence, correction belongs to the soul.
If we understand that the correction should take place in our souls, connecting us to the Creator, we will understand what each missile falling on us means, what it must awaken in us, and who sends it. There is no single event that is not sent from above with a specific purpose; everything is verified to the tiniest detail and connected to a system of forces.
There are no coincidences in the world. We just need to understand what we need to do in order to correct this form of relationship with the Creator, and we have great opportunities for this. Let’s not just sit and wait. Let’s strengthen our work on connection in order to awaken mercy from above, from the upper force. It will advance us and all of humanity not through such negative forces and judgments, but through kindness and mercy.
Let us ask the Creator for that and I am sure we can influence the situation. The only way to resolve this state is greater connection between the people of Israel. We can correct everything through our connection. There is no other way; the world will not let us solve this problem by force because it is becoming more and more anti-Semitic. The world will only rejoice in our troubles.
Therefore, we must correct our attitude toward the world and its attitude toward us. Correction is only possible through the fulfillment of our mission regarding the world, that is, unification of the people of Israel the way the wisdom of Kabbalah teaches us. Our connection will cause the world’s connection. We do not need to call for the world to connect and to perceive Israel in the same way as all the other countries.
It will never happen. Therefore, there is no point to call upon the entire world to eliminate anti-Semitism; it will never disappear, it will only grow. We must correct all negativity only through our inner work, among the people of Israel, that is, through our connection. Through our connection, the light will come to the world, meaning, to become “the light for the nations,” which the people of Israel should become.1
