Question: There is speculation that future generations will pay for the coronavirus. In addition to debt, we leave them two huge problems: looking after us when our pensions are left without funding and solving the problems of climate change, which we did not solve and passed on to them. On top of that, we have limited investments in their health and education. In short, the next generation will feel bad. We have robbed our children and grandchildren.
But in principle, I still keep thinking about my children and grandchildren. Why does a person suddenly become disconnected from this? They will live in some kind of environmentally dirty, broken world, with a supply of nuclear weapons, whatever you want. We do not even think about what kind of future we have arranged for them.
Answer: Nobody thinks that he leaves it to his descendants. Why should I think about it? This is natural for a person!
Question: To not think about future generations?
Answer: No. This is his real face, Homo Sapiens. “Knowing man”!
Question: Is this what intelligence is about, to think only of yourself?
Answer: Of course. To snatch for yourself as much as possible. I live while I am alive. That is it, nothing else! “After us the deluge.”
We can do nothing with our nature; it is higher than us. Nothing! There is no natural desire in us to do something with ourselves for the sake of our descendants. We know that we are putting them right under nuclear bombs, climate problems, whatever.
Question: How does one start a dialogue with nature so that it gives us a feeling of both guilt and responsibility that we must do something for future generations?
Answer: This can only be done through the realization of the evil of our nature and the way to get out of it; is there still a way out? But humanity is not suffering enough to seek this way out.
Question: But what is the solution?
Answer: Only dissemination of Kabbalah, which talks about how to correct human nature, reveals all the ignominy, all the improbability of this nature, its horror! It reveals the emptiness in a person, so that he realizes that he needs to fill it.
Question: What is this emptiness revealed in?
Answer: In hopelessness.
Question: Is there no future? Does my nature allow me no future?
Answer: It will not allow you anything. A man is the most terrible creature.
Question: Then why did the Creator create us in this way?
Answer: In order for us to realize our evil and correct it, to ask Him for correction. And then we will become participants in our new, spiritual development.
Question: If He simply did it without our request, then we would receive everything simply for free and would not appreciate it? And here we do have to appreciate it?
Answer: We should achieve it. And then we will feel that we received the opportunity to work with this new sensation, with these new forces.
People should know this. People should understand that they are faced with a very serious task to correct their own nature. We can do this.
