News reports show the world is heading to the abyss, sinking lower and lower every day and urgently needs a genuine cure. But there is no doubt that such a vaccine cannot be made in a laboratory, and unfortunately, the epidemic will only intensify. It is not yet clear that the world changing in a good direction.
We must feel responsible for the whole of reality and exactly for that we should ask the Creator for forgiveness. After all, we understand that everything depends on us. The Creator has brought us closer to Himself and is waiting for us to ask Him for the whole world as the supreme ruler. He wants us to be a conduit through which light will flow between Him and the whole world, but we are still unable to ask Him for it.
So, we ask forgiveness for this because today we are already under an obligation to implement it. We ask forgiveness not for past crimes, but for what we must do now as we recognize that we are responsible for the state of the world. Thus, we have what to repent before the Creator for since we have brought the world to such a terrible state in which it is today.
If we had acted correctly, even before the coronavirus pandemic, before all these problems, we would have attracted good forces to the world, and the world would have turned in a good direction.
We apologize for neglecting our mission, our connection with the Creator. We do not ask for forgiveness; rather, we want to be corrected: let the Creator give us wisdom, feelings, and bring us closer to Him so that we can correct the world. As it says: “From the love of the created beings to the love of the Creator.”
