Paths To The Question Of The Meaning Of Life

 202Question: Why do Jews and the nations of the world come to the question of the meaning of life in different ways? The peoples of the world come to it from more of a quiet life, when everything is good for them, they have everything, and the Jews from suffering.

Answer: This comes from the fact that the nations of the world reach satiation and discover emptiness in themselves.

This is how ordinary egoism develops: it tries to fill itself all the time and because of thousands of years of effort concludes that it cannot be filled. What to do next? There is no reason to live. As a result, there is oblivion in drugs, suicide, divorce, in general, anything.

In addition, they are driven forward simply by curiosity, the crisis of all sciences, the insularity of this small world.

As for the Jews, it is very difficult to return to their original state again because of their complex internal hierarchical structure, which they absorbed and stayed in for 3,000  years. Because the spiritual tower they created in themselves and lived according to the laws of love and feeling spirituality now has turned within them into the opposite.

As a result of spiritual attainment, visions, sensations, all this turned into religion, into dogmas, into the mechanical fulfillment of the commandments, as in other religions that took their foundations from Judaism. They say that for the simple physical fulfillment of traditions, you will receive a future world after death and you do not need anything else.

But in the end, we see that the nations of the world will put pressure on Israel until they force it to turn to Kabbalah, reveal it for themselves, show an example to the whole world, and then teach this.

Obligation To Complete The Correction

294.2A person has no right to leave a correction without completing it totally. All those remaining desires that could not be corrected in the previous generation for some reason come to light in the last generation, and we are obliged to correct them.

Where are Joshua, Moses? Where are all the great leaders: Rabash, Baal HaSulam, the Ari and thousands more? They are not here. But everything is arranged exactly in such a way that the Messiah comes in a generation in which either all are the great ones or all are the lowest ones.

We fit the second definition, as it is said: “The face of a generation is like the muzzle of a dog.” But since we have come to this, since they are pushing us to this, then we will do it. I have no doubt about that.

Comment: It’s easier for you, you grabbed hold of it and that’s it, you went ahead!

My Response: No, you are wrong. First, I cannot show anyone to what extent I myself am nobody and nothing. On the contrary, I must demonstrate confidence, understanding, and openness.

If Moses, Joshua, all the prophets, and all the great Kabbalists behaved in this way in their states, then what is there to say about us! We need to do what we are given. And it doesn’t matter that maybe you’re not good at it. Be that as it may, you need to go forward: “I tried, and this is what I did.”

We need to try to do better, and how it works out, let it be as it may. Everything is in the hands of the Creator.

The Time Of Revealing Kabbalah

254.02In all our primary sources, it is written that all of humanity should unite into one single collective image called AdamThen we will rise and reach the level of the upper force, the Creator. We should exist in this state.

Our earthly state takes only a short period of our historical existence. No more than that.

If a person has a desire to understand the meaning of life, then it is impossible to hold him back. He sees that his existence, no matter how sublime and fulfilling it may be, ends. It is temporary, limited, which means that it initially costs nothing. He feels that the scope of his horizon is higher and wider than this life, and therefore, can no longer look at this small circle.

Those people who believe that they understand something and thereby limit their requests, show their inconsistency themselves. By the way, I would not say that opposition of Kabbalah prevails now. Of course, somewhere there are still smart men who say that, but in general, we have already outgrown it.

Former opponents of Kabbalah realized that it was impossible to talk about it publicly, and now they themselves teach Kabbalah and sell books. Today, in any religious store you can buy books on Kabbalah, and forty years ago I could not find them at all.

Comment: On one hand Jews must present the method of correction to the world, and on the other hand, today the nations of the world are more interested in Kabbalah.

My Response: If a person has an aspiration for the Creator, then it does not matter who he or she is. But, of course, there will be more non-Jews in this business. In terms of mass, it should be so, because everything goes along the pyramid.

Join The Multitude Of Corrected Souls

961.2Rashbi, Zohar for All, VaYechi, Item 168: “When a person dies, he is given permission to see. He sees his kin and his friends from the world of truth, he recognizes them, and they are all engraved in the same form that they had in this world. If a person is righteous, they all rejoice before him and greet him.”

Question: What does it mean “engraved in the same form that they had in this world”?

Answer: When climbing the spiritual ladder, a person does not change. He only changes the use of his properties.

Question: Why is everyone rejoicing and greeting him?

Answer: Because a whole soul is rising up to them, and it now joins the multitude of their corrected souls. This is a huge addition, a huge event, in the spiritual world.

Imagine that there are seven billion souls or rather black dots on the level of this world and each one must rise and reach the power of the level of the world of infinity. In the meantime, they are vegetating at this dot level.

Of course, it is desirable that they all correct themselves. And that is why those high souls help, lift and shake us up so that we finally reach the spiritual stage, perfection and harmony, and rejoice in every corrected soul.

Systemic sufferings are beginning to appear in our world, and they force people to start thinking systematically. We are connected to each other, dependent on each other, and we cannot change anything by any violent methods.

I hope that these systemic sufferings will lead everyone to the need for unification. And then by quantity, not by quality of a small group, but the whole of humanity, we will begin to rise. It will be very easy, simple, understandable, and natural for everyone.

It will be written about in newspapers, talked about on television, and discussed everywhere. It will constantly roll through people’s heads and will become a subject of life for them.

I am absolutely certain that we will come to unity in a good, gentle way. And the fact that The Book of Zohar is being revealed now is a very good sign. You just need to open it, take it as an infusion drop by drop, and it will work.

What Does A Kabbalist Suffer From?

961.1I am asked: “What does a Kabbalist suffer from, does he have suffering?” Of course, a Kabbalist suffers like all people. And at the same time, he worries about the fact that he cannot transfer all the suffering only to the spiritual area. The desire to receive brings him material suffering, and he must raise them to the spiritual level. And naturally, he worries about all his students.

But the main thing is the Kabbalist’s suffering from the fact that he wants to push all the population of this world to the correction that the Creator is waiting for and does not feel that it is working.

The Kabbalist sees how the world is moving toward suffering and problems are increasing every day. He is aware of all the news, sees what crises and catastrophes are happening with humanity and knows how they could be avoided and mitigated.

But it does not depend on him, but on how ordinary people will change their attitude to the world.

Therefore the Kabbalist suffers the most. He sees misfortune approaching, how the volcano will soon explode and cover the city with lava or some other natural disaster will occur, and he can do nothing.

Imagine that a mother sees that her child is in danger and misfortune is about to happen to him and she cannot intervene. The only way to help him is to awaken strangers around him so that they start taking care of him and protect him from misfortune. Only in this form can he be saved.

Therefore the suffering of a Kabbalist is much stronger than that of an ordinary person. It depends on the dissemination of the wisdom of Kabbalah whether we will be able to change the fate of this child who is in danger, that is, the whole of humanity. But we know how difficult it is to reach human hearts, as if they are shackled in impenetrable armor.

There is only one possibility left: to ask the Creator to help break through this armor on the heart, penetrate into the hearts and convey to people our warmth and care, the need for connection. Let’s hope that thanks to all these efforts, one big bonfire will finally ignite from the sparks that we are trying to kindle and pass on to each other.

Conveying Kabbalistic Information

525Question: What do you think is the most suitable genre of films for conveying Kabbalistic information: comedy, drama, or historical films?

Answer: I believe that everything that a person experiences can be suitable. It only depends on the idea.

Question: What genres do you personally like the most?

Answer: For conveying Kabbalistic information, I cannot imagine anything other than a conversation in the form of a dialogue or a monologue.

What else could it be? When actors are running around the stage, it does not mean anything. It all depends on what they want to convey. Therefore, nothing can be said in advance.

Comment: But the Torah is written in dramatic language. There are always some events occurring: wars, love, hatred.

My Response: It is not exactly what we think. We do not understand what is written in the Torah. It speaks about something completely different. It is a story that allegorically conveys the elevation of man above his nature to the level of the Creator.

Kabbalah Is For Everyone Without Exception

962.5Question: Why do you think that anyone who is concerned about the meaning of life can study Kabbalah?

Answer: I base my words on what happened in ancient Babylon where the Babylonian priest Abraham revealed Kabbalah to everyone. He recruited a small group of people that he began to teach Kabbalah to, rallied them into the so-called nation, and later brought them out of Babylon.

But this was not a nation, it was just a group that moved away from ancient Babylonian civilization. As a result, it should present the Kabbalistic methodology to the whole world.

Comment: There are people who would like to study Kabbalah, but while searching they turn to various rabbis, and are dissuaded in every possible way with arguments that only a religious Jew can study Kabbalah and a woman cannot study it at all.

My Response: What can be said about people who do not understand why Kabbalah was given to us? We must take an example from two historical figures Abraham and Sarah who taught everyone without exception. The Torah says so: “And everyone will know Me, young and old. And My house will be called the house of prayer for all nations.”

Present From Baal HaSulam To The Last Generation

961.2It is a great honor to speak about Baal HaSulam on his memorial day. This is a special soul that on the one hand is connected with the Creator and on the other hand is connected with us, which allows us to be nourished by spirituality through it. The spiritual stream flows through Baal HaSulam and Rabash to us. Therefore there are no words to express gratitude to the Creator for sending such a messenger to us.

Baal HaSulam said that he never talked about spiritual phenomena prior to attaining them himself. From this we can understand at what extraordinary height this soul was.

Before Baal HaSulam, only great experts of the Torah could be awarded the revelation of the Creator. But Baal HaSulam through his actions brought us that an ordinary person who wished to follow the spiritual path can be awarded adhesion with the Creator.

The time has come when all souls are coming so close to correction that the upper light influences them more and more. The most important thing for us who are at the foot of the spiritual ladder is to receive the correct guidance and the correct direction, which is what Baal HaSulam did with his articles, letters, the book Study of the Ten Sefirot, and the Sulam Commentary to The Book of Zohar.

If we combine all these sources and the methodology composed by Baal HaSulam on the basis of the teachings of the Ari and the Baal Shem Tov, we will begin to reveal the upper force to our entire generation until we bring all of it to the end of correction.

Then what is written will come true: “They shall all know Me from their smallest to their greatest, and My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.” There will not be a single person of any nationality and race who would not know the Creator. Everyone will come to adhesion with the upper force.

That is why I am so happy to see among my students representatives of all the nations, of all parts of humanity. All of us, by connecting together, will reveal the Creator who resides within us.

The Creator gave this great soul an immense spiritual attainment. Then Baal HaSulam was able to share this gift received from the Creator with all the inhabitants of this world.

Baal HaSulam said that he was awarded a high spiritual attainment only because the generation was ready for it. It all depends on the generation. This was the beginning of the period of the so-called “last generation,” and therefore Baal HaSulam received permission to reveal the wisdom of Kabbalah, spiritual knowledge, and gave us a complete method of spiritual revelation. Now we can use it, and we will certainly reach the sublime purpose of creation.

Baal HaSulam writes that we have received everything we need and all that is left for us is to study this methodology, disseminate it in all forms, and implement it. Through the love of friends we can climb all the degrees of the spiritual ladder. When we reach the love of friends we begin to understand what love of the Creator is. Before that it will be just an abstract fantasy with no basis.

Only by connecting together from our unity do we understand what we need to do in relation to the Creator. After all, we already have a Kli in which we attain who the Creator is, what it means to bestow to Him, and in general, what bestowal is. Therefore the most urgent task is to try to come to the love of friends, through which we will be awarded all spiritual degrees.

Uncovering The Truth Of Nature

214Question: How is it possible for the strong and the weak to realize themselves in the same way in our time?

Answer: Only by revealing the general system of our interaction through attaining the wisdom of Kabbalah. Today, if we reveal to mankind the system we exist in, like in science fiction movies, suddenly Boom!, and it is revealed that you are inside some space that affects you, and it turns out that you are under the influence of some forces that hold you and do not allow you to rush anywhere, then from this moment onward we would become good kids.

Comment: But we do not yet see this system of forces.

My Response: To do this we need to disseminate Kabbalah in order to reveal this system with its help. A person who studies Kabbalah suddenly begins to feel it, and by feeling it, he becomes different.

There are no coercive measures here, no illusions or mysticism. He begins to see the forces that stand behind matter, organizes it, holds it, and connects us. By clearly seeing this system of forces, he involuntarily behaves correctly in accordance with nature. It is not that one politician invented something, then another one or someone suggested something or something seems to somebody today.

We need to reveal the truth of nature, and from there we will learn why we are created in this way each with certain properties and background, why everyone should optimally realize himself in a certain way and not in another way. Then everyone will be happy.

At The Finish Line Of History

750.03The people of Israel were formed from those people who felt that it is their duty to connect in order to attain the meaning of life and its purpose, the correction of creation and the upper force. That is why they called themselves Israel (Yashar-kel), which means “straight to the Creator.”

Abraham chose these people from all the inhabitants of Babylon, that is, from all the nations of the world at that time, and taught them the main principle of connection: love your neighbor as yourself.

In this way, they rose above egoism, which is constantly growing and swelling by leaps and bounds in human society. This growth is purposeful in order to ensure a sufficient gap between the huge egoism of humanity and the power of connection above egoism, which society is obliged to achieve.

When we reach a certain degree of confrontation between egoism and connection, then within it we begin to reveal the upper force, the upper world, and us belonging to the spiritual world.

The growing egoism serves as an engine that lifts us from this world to the spiritual one, from reception to bestowal, from hatred to love. If we follow the principles that “love will cover all crimes” and “everyone judges according to his own flaws,”then individually and together as a whole group, we will be able to reach such a strong connection together that the Creator will be revealed within it.

Over thousands of years, the group assembled by Abraham in Babylon has changed a lot. Part of it has disappeared, dissolved, in the nations of the world, and is yet to be revealed. There were many in the people of Israel who attained the degree of the Creator to the extent of their ability to overcome egoism and connect.

Over the years, the conditions changed, but the principle remained the same because the laws of the world are constant and unchangeable. We just need to study them and fulfill them in order to reach the corrected state.

Therefore, we need to study the process that the group of Abraham went through in history, since ” the deeds of the fathers will become a sign for the sons.” From this we will understand in which direction we are moving, what is happening to us, and what signs of the deeds of the fathers can be seen today since the eternal principle of love your neighbor as yourself, the law of unity, is always in action.

From the Ari onward, all Kabbalists were saying that we have entered the era of the Mashiach, that is, the time of the end of correction. There is one last stage of our development left, which can be quite long. As always, the nations of the world are applying pressure on the people of Israel, and this pressure is designed to force us to unite, at least through suffering.

Jews must draw conclusions from their history and connect and take an example from the fathers. Through this connection, we will almost immediately feel the fading of external pressure because of our correct reaction to it and our efforts to connect.

Therefore, all the wars that are arising against us will immediately subside, because we will begin to advance by ourselves, without external pressure. If we ourselves reveal the forces for advancement and rush forward, then those who impeded us instead will begin to help.

This will be the correct tendency, in agreement with the single upper force, that wants to see the entire humanity in such unity.

If we do not make efforts to advance toward unity, then to the extent of the lack of these efforts, the nations of the world and negative forces within the people of Israel themselves will rise up and start fighting, confrontation from all sides, in order to awaken us and force us to make the right conclusion—to understand the reason for this pressure and what we should do.

Today we are in a very delicate, acute state. I spoke about this danger many years ago, but I did not expect it to happen so quickly and that already in our time such a special state would develop between all countries and nations all over the world.

We are living in the era of new technologies and global communication and have reached a certain inner understanding of things that are happening: the responsibility of man for the Earth and the entire Universe.

Nowadays, there are many highly educated people with a broad view, not as it was before. Almost everyone has the opportunity to travel around the world and see the life of other nations and connect with the entire world above distances and differences in languages.

Yet in the matter of anti-Semitism, we see that nothing helps: the law that advances humanity to connection acts harshly, one might even say cruelly. First of all, it puts pressure on those who should be the first to lead humanity as one nation that is obliged to do this work, to become pioneers on this path, and to lead the entire world.

There is no way to bypass this law. The upper light, the upper forces, are organized in such a way that as soon as the people of Israel, a group gathered during the time of Abraham from all nations, unite again, all paths open up before it. There are no obstacles; on the contrary, there are forces of nature ready to help them and lift them to spiritual degrees on their shoulders. After this all of humanity will be happy to unite.

This is how the upper governance is arranged and this is how it will be. Everything depends on Israel, as Baal HaSulam writes in the Introduction to The Book of Zohar, because only they have the freedom of choice.

Those who are aspiring to come closer to the Creator are called Israel. They feel obliged to bring themselves and all of humanity to a common connection and spiritual ascent. Any person in the world, of any nationality; black, white, red, or yellow; and all four layers in humanity; the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th; belong to one nation, which is obliged to reach unity and adhesion with the Creator.

Therefore, all over the world pressure on this corporeal group called Israel is growing, although they do not understand what is happening to them. After all, they have long ago left this work of leading themselves and the entire world to the adhesion with the Creator. Humanity, too, has not received the knowledge that the world is undergoing a purposeful development that leads it to complete correction and therefore does not understand the reasons for its hatred.

The Jews are confused and perplexed about what they want from them, and because of the great egoism, they only dream of peace and prosperity. The nations of the world feel that the Jews are concealing and hiding something from them, and not allowing them to come to a good life.

That is why these two groups feel lost in the dark, where the aggression coming from the nations of the world bumps into the hatred and fear that the Jews feel.

It is clear that this does not benefit either of them: great suffering awaits both those who commit violence and those who are stubborn and do not want to hear about correction. Therefore, it is our duty to explain the situation to both, and to push the correction process forward as much as possible.
