Remark: Baal HaSulam, answering the question of what the whole world expects from the return of the people of Israel to their land, wrote: “It is not in other teachings, for in that we never innovated. In them, we have always been their disciples. Rather, it is the wisdom of religion, justice, and peace. In this, most nations are our disciples, and this wisdom is attributed to us alone.” [The Writings of the Last Generation & the Nation]
My Response: Indeed, until recent times we were disciples of other nations and did not succeed in other sciences. Our only occupation was spiritual exaltation. And only during the last 100 – 150 years, when we had moved away from the inner part of the Torah, were we lost in the other sciences, in business, and so on.
Thus, in our time, everything has turned upside down. We learn from the peoples of the world all kinds of philosophies and religions, and from us they learn sciences.
This is why we need to restore the correct correspondence between us and other peoples, becoming, as it is said, the light for the peoples of the world. We must reveal to them what the science of Kabbalah actually brings, how it is possible to reach an understanding of the world in which we exist, and how to come to its correction.
