ALL WHO FEEL THE SORROWS OF THE PUBLIC MERIT CONSOLATION
It is said that “all who sorrow with the public merit to the consolation of the public.” Which is to say, someone who takes the sorrow and the needs of the public and elevates them, he is the first to merit to the Light that Reforms, which passes through him to those people for whom he is concerned.
The practical realization of the wisdom of Kabbalah, which is to say the revelation of the Creator to the creatures in this world, begins from our generation and on. Now, we together with all of humanity discover a Kli, a desire, for the completion of correction thanks to the global crisis and our dissemination work in Israel and in the entire world. Even if we receive the smallest shortcomings from people, thanks to the connection between their shortcomings and our shortcomings, we can elevate all this together to the spiritual world.
People want material, simple things, but their desires are arranged such that it is impossible to correct them without the help of the Light that Reforms. This is the form of the present crisis; every deficiency, regardless of its kind, is revealed to be shattered, egoistic, and without solution on the plane of this world.
It requires Light for its correction because it is derived from the mutual inclusion between everyone and requires the right connections in various directions among people and with the still, vegetative, animate nature. All this must be connected together and be mutually completed with each other, and only then will correction take place.
Therefore it is clear that the crisis cannot be corrected through human efforts. Rather, when we accept the deficiencies from people and elevate them, we carry out Divine work, serving as a conduit between the Creator and the creatures and become what is called a “kingdom of priests and a holy nation.”
