The Joy of the Long Awaited Encounter

 

The reading of The Zohar can be compared to a long awaited meeting with a person you love, someone you wished to be closer to. When the two of you finally meet, it doesn't matter to you what exactly he is saying. The most important thing is that while being next to him and hearing his voice, you feel your closeness. The actual words are not important. Let him talk. You don't even listen to them that closely. Through the words, you want to feel how you come closer to him and feel him more.

And it's the same with The Book of Zohar. All the different words and stories that are written in it seem to confuse us, but then, we understand why this is written there: It is because all of it are names of our connections. But I don't care about what is written in the book exactly, what it is talking about. What matters is that I am close to it at this time. Because I rejoice at being connected with it, I don't really pay attention to its words. The most important thing is that we are close.

The Question that Weighs Down the Masses

 

The world's correction begins when we unite into a group and reveal the force of bestowal among us.

Then this group corrects the whole world, which is already ready to unite with it, to join its message. That is how we move towards the end of correction, to our total realization.

By virtue of what do we begin to feel, understand, and realize that correction is necessary? Based on what do we make this conclusion? According to which science, which experimental data?

Life itself is already illustrating this necessity. It is clearly demonstrating that we are in the integral world, all of whose parts are interconnected. However, we are connected by hatred and an awful state of affairs. These relationships are the crisis that is unraveling between people, with repulsion and egoism reigning among them. All of our connections are enveloped by this crisis and therefore our life is becoming more and more difficult. We suffer more and more due to the lack of purpose.

From here we can see that we are nearing a certain realization, and apparently, we have to take some measures. After that we will gradually discover that we are powerless in the face of the world. We cannot correct anything in the external society.

We have quarreled with nature to the maximum, destroying it to such an extent that there is a deadly threat hovering above us. In the end, all that remains is for us to correct ourselves. If we become corrected for the sake of unification, then apparently, our life will become better and safer. Thus, science and bitter experience create a foundation for us, allowing us to realize first hand that it's worthwhile for us to correct ourselves.

To some extent the outside world already agrees with the presence of the global crisis and the need to achieve true unification among us. Suppose people see that we are obligated, compelled to unite. But how?

A question mark arises before them, which is very significant. After all, if the masses become imbued by it, if they see that there is nothing else to do, they will scream for help, for salvation. It is written, "The sons of Israel cried out from the work." And even though the masses are not "the sons of Israel,"

meaning they don't aspire straight to the Creator, they are nevertheless ready for it. That is how a nation comes out of Egypt. Who can see and understand the general picture, besides several leaders?

Before our very eyes, humanity is gradually tumbling down toward this state. There are enough facts proving this, and they can strengthen us on the path.
