Here Is a New Level of Consciousness That You Can Develop Today

To Change the World a New Level of Consciousness Is Needed

By now it is clear not only for people studying Kabbalah, but for everybody that unless the path the world is on changes, we are heading for disaster. The wisdom of Kabbalah teaches us that we can only change the world by changing ourselves.

In order for the world to change, there has to be a new consciousness among the public, one that is above emotions. There has to be reason as well as emotion in the way we relate to the world. We need reason to relate to good and bad critically and to realize that if we feel bad, it must mean that there is a reason and a purpose for it. The public is stuck in a cycle of merely “feeling bad,” or “feeling good.” It can take hundreds of years before people start asking: “Why is this happening to me?”

 

Rising Above Feelings of Subjective Good and Bad through Kabbalah

Our goal is to explain where our present state is leading us. As Baal HaSulam wrote, “Religion is not for the good of the people, but for the good of the worker,” meaning that the purpose of religion is not to benefit people, or to benefit the Creator, but to benefit those who are working to be corrected. The entire world was created for that ultimate goal. But if you judge what happens to you only by feelings of “good” or “bad,” you remain in the degrees of still, vegetative, or animate and never advance to the degree of speaking, the degree we need to complete our correction.

 

Developing the Fundamental Question: Why am I Suffering?

The Creator does not forget us. Every day more and more pains are added to our world. Our only problem is how much we will have to suffer before we realize that torments come for the sole purpose of awakening in us something above the sensation of pain. People think there is nothing they can do, and that this is the price we pay for living in this world. But that attitude is nothing more than an escape from recognizing the reason for the pains. Instead of asking why this happens to us, and perhaps acknowledging that there is a purpose to it, we calm ourselves down and accept it. We try to reduce the painful sensation. People die every day and we still find a way to make ourselves comfortable with it. That is what happens in our society today. Acting in such a way is like being an ostrich that hides its head in the sand in the face of danger. Such actions have become a strategy in our world. Politicians brag about their narrow-mindedness and their lack of understanding in what we face.

 

How All Problems Can Be Solved through Mutual Inclusion in Spiritual Advancement

The person who concerns him- or herself with the reason for the pains in the world is different from others in that he or she has a more developed soul. Therefore, it is that person’s duty to explain to others that there is a reason for the pains—namely, that they demand of us to unite with the upper force. It is enough for people to recognize that it is the Creator bringing us closer to the good. If we begin to think about the goal, instead of our pain and egoism, we will begin to solve all our problems.
