On New Year’s Eve, it is customary to sum up the results of the past year. The year 2020 will go down in history as a symbol of the coronavirus epidemic that spread throughout the world.
In addition, it was full of other events: there were wars, civil unrests in different parts of the world, natural disasters, extensive forest fires in California and Australia, economic crisis, a terrible increase in unemployment around the world.
With all this, I, as a Kabbalist, can assess the past 2020 as the most progressive in history. Humanity has started to shake itself off, to get rid of useless habits like the pursuit of money, entertainment, restaurants, and from the desire to be filled with pleasure without thinking about anything else.
And then nature slapped us in the face and forced us to stop. We had no choice but to stop this race and go home. The epidemic has forced us to retire and think about our lives or to at least abandon old habits. And this is good, because humanity was forced to shift from a life in pursuit of money and power to different times, to new values.
This year we managed to do this even though not by our own choice but by a decree from above. In this sense, the coronavirus has really done us a great service, and today we are in a completely different state. We closed a lot of businesses that were not necessary.
We stopped poisoning and destroying nature, cutting down trees, killing animals, and at least dramatically reduced the damage. The Earth started to recover from the devastation we had been inflicting on it over the past decades.
I very much hope that these positive changes will continue. The epidemic will not end just like that because this is not a disaster but a huge help from nature.
It is written that “by the blows of the Creator, He heals.” The coronavirus epidemic was a cure for our excessively enlarged egoism. Therefore, I very much hope that we will draw correct and useful conclusions from it for our further development.
