Question: It is said that there is a paradox of power: As soon as we gain it, we lose some abilities. Let us say that empaths become insensitive, honest people become thieves, and professionals become incompetent. Even being in power for just four or five years is already a lot. For example, in ancient Rome and Greece, governors were changed every year.
How was it handled in ancient Israel? Were there any restrictions on those in power?
Answer: In ancient Israel, it was constantly changing. A person cannot be in power if he does not prove to others that he uses the power correctly and that he is morally and mentally superior to others. Therefore, his job was to demonstrate his superior abilities all the time.
For example, a king had to teach, be a judge, issue decrees, and justify them before the assembly. And the assembly consisted of 120 wise men who did not simply obey him; they objected and freely voted “for” or “against.” All this was very complicated.
In addition, there was a limitation of power both over the years and in various areas.

Question: What is special about The Book of Zohar?
Answer: This book changes people if they follow it. It is written and connected with such higher sources, which greatly influence a person and are able to reveal the hidden qualities of bestowal and love in him.
The Book of Zohar evokes an illumination of the upper light on a person. In the sources, The Flag of the Camp of Ephraim, it is written: “Those who have not been honored to understand The Book of the Zohar should still study it, since the language of The Zohar cleanses the soul.”
Question: In the same sourcebook, it is said that The Book of Zohar explains Maase Bereshit (Initial Action) and Maase Merkava (Action of Creation). What are these states?
Answer: Maase Bereshit are texts about the creation of the world, about the whole creation, and its system. And Maase Merkava are texts that tell about the work of governance of the systems of this world, the connection of all souls, and their cycles. Both apply specifically to us. We need to uncover these systems and take part in them. It is written about this in The Book of Zohar, maybe a few lines, but through them a person begins to see the whole system.
It is said that The Book of Zohar has a new interpretation every day. It depends on the quality of a person. If he changes, if he becomes more corrected, then every day he sees the Book itself differently. It reveals to him greater and greater depths of its text.

Question: What does it mean that the importance of the Jews is determined according to the speed of correction and the nations of the world according to the revelation of the Creator’s plan?
Answer: This means that we must work together! Now we are in a state where we must quickly correct ourselves and attract the peoples of the world in this. This is how it should be executed.
And if not, then the prophets say that this can happen through suffering, enormous suffering, even much greater than before. Kabbalah speaks about the possibility of an atomic war.
It turns out that the Jews are to blame for not bringing correction to our world in time. And yet I hope for a good, kind path.

Answer: Yes, because these are the souls from Babylon who aspired to unite with each other and to unite with the Creator. They responded to this call because they belong to the thinnest, upper part of a single soul.
But with the collapse of the First and Second Temples, they fell from this spiritual level and mixed with all of humanity. We see how this mixture has reached such proportions that on every point of the globe they cannot forget about this small number of people, decide who they are, what they are, or what to do with them.
As a result, we come to a state where, through the revelation of Kabbalah, this group of people will be forced to rise again to the spiritual level and show the whole of humanity the same example that the rest of the Babylonians could not accept in ancient Babylon.
The Jewish souls cannot change because they are different in their root. They correspond to Galgalta ve Eynaim, the part of the common soul that is engaged in the implementation of correction. And the rest of the souls adjoin it and also engage in mutual correction, but with the help of the upper light, which they receive through this upper part.
This is by no means a disregard for the peoples of the world or a preference for some over others. It is just the way things are. By the way, as a result of the mixing of the Jews with the peoples of the world during the spiritual exile, the same states arise in other peoples as for the Jews, and they also rush upward.
We see such examples that took place in the ancient world. These are: Rabbi Akiva, Onkelos who gave us the Aramaic Targum (translation) of the Torah, and others. That is, there were souls who in past exiles received a spiritual gene from Galgalta ve Eynaim, were able to adapt it, and use it even better than the Jews.
