Recent times has seen waves of tragic events around the world. One of the saddest tendencies is mass shootings in the US, many of which have been carried out by the young generation.
What makes a person kill at such an early age?
We live in an information society. While parents work hard 24/7 to run for the recent innovations, children are left home alone with their phones and dozens of informational channels constantly influencing them. However, all these channels don’t give them a real sensation of being here and now, being loved, being taken care of. Therefore, first, antisocial behavior is the way to attract attention to themselves, to be seen.
However, if we look closer, we’ll see that the problem is rooted much deeper. According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, today, humanity in general reaches a point where it needs to start developing greater awareness of the nature enveloping it: the force of love and bestowal.
The younger generation, especially teenagers, feel this necessity the most. It is expressed in such questions as: “What is the meaning of life?” “How can I turn my useless existence into something great and valuable?” “How can I become needed by my parents /friends/society?” Children ask these questions and, unfortunately, don’t get answers. They are not stupid, they are not criminals, this is just how the inner pressure affects them, and they have no method of how to deal with it.
Therefore, in order to prevent today’s youth from supporting different kinds of antisocial behavior, society itself must teach them how to exit the false paradigm of this world, how to understand reality, deal with influences of the information society, and uncover the meaning of life – the entrance to the upper world and higher existence.
