198Baal HaSulam’s article “The Last Generation” is a unique article written in the 50s of the last century. He wrote it specifically to show the future from the past, a program for the spiritual development of humanity.

The article is intended for a generation that must choose what to exist for, where we are going, what attracts us. This is exactly what Baal HaSulam is interested in. He seeks to show how spiritual laws are manifested in all areas of our lives, and we must reach a state where we think together about the last generation that is now being formed.

Baal HaSulam was a great visionary and prophet. A prophet is a person who has a connection with the upper force, the Creator, with the system of the worlds, and at the same time with our world. Therefore, it can serve as a link between our world and the upper one.

209Question: On one hand everything in the Torah is encrypted because the secrets of the universe must be hidden since people can misunderstand them. But when you begin to analyze the Torah, everything fits into one rule: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” What is there to hide?

Answer: The fact is that in nature, inside us, in the upper governance that controls us from above, there is indeed a lot that is incomprehensible. There is no secret in this. The only secret is how we can reveal what we do not understand, get closer to the Creator, enter into His governance, look into Him, and understand Him.

Question: It is still unclear; so many books have been written, even in two languages: Hebrew and Aramaic, tens of thousands of pages! And all this just so that we can unite together and love each other! Why write so much about this? Is there really no other way for people to understand that they must unite?

Answer: In order to unite, you can write one sentence. But we see that it does not work. Therefore, a system of forces is offered that affects a person and helps him transform himself in similarity to the Creator.

Just as all of nature consists of a unity of opposites, since it was created due to the combination of different elements and parts, so people with completely different qualities must unite with each other. This process has been going on for hundreds of thousands of years throughout the universe.

963.4Question: from Anya:

You often say that you need to be happy. How can we be happy about what is happening today? There is no joy today. Today you are afraid of tomorrow. There’s so much grief around today, how can I be happy? How to be happy?

My Response: A person should strive to comprehend the meaning of life and see that the meaning of life is for life itself to be revealing to you:  what it is for, why it is, and where it leads through animal death, in general, where it leads us and where it pulls us. A person should strive for this revelation.

Question: In principle, do we understand that from birth to “coffin” is a segment of my life?

Answer: This is a period of life that, in general, does not count as life, because you are following some clear instinctive instructions of nature here. You act in accordance with the order to survive, get comfortable, suffer less, and so on.

Question: And so, I have to jump out of this state?

Answer: Yes. You have to jump out of this state in order to feel the meaning of existence.

Question: Where is the joy here?

Answer: The joy here is in comprehending the whole universe. Joy is in understanding the meaning.

Question: Anya asks: “How can you be happy today when all this is happening?”

Answer: When you understand what all this is for and how much every movement of inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human nature, everything is aimed at revealing the mystery of life.

Question: Is it possible to link what is happening around, suffering and horrors, to this chain, the disclosure of the mystery of life?

Answer: Of course, that is what all this is for.

Question: And when it hurts?

Answer: When it hurts, then it is all the more necessary to understand that all this leads us eventually to a sense of inner meaning.

Question: And does this lead to joy?

Answer: Yes.

Question: And what happens to the pain?

Answer: The pain disappears. If we know exactly what for, why, and for what, we become included in it, then there is no pain, and everything becomes meaningful.

Question: Breakdowns happen here; what do I lose again and find again in this movement?

Answer: They happen so often that you think that is how it should be.

Question: So, I’m going to lose and find, lose and find, this meaning of life?

Answer: Yes.

Question: And it’s still considered that I’m getting stronger and getting closer?

Answer: You are getting stronger all the time and moving forward.

Question: Is there no other way to move toward this?

Answer: No, immersion in the meaning of life is the comprehension of the Creator.

528.01Question: When we gather together for workshops and various events, how do we understand that we have attracted the reforming light?

Answer: If you connect with each other and in your common desire strive together toward the Creator, then what you receive from this is a consequence of your common Kli, a common soul. We must strive for this.

Question: At this stage, we seem to be rubbing our hearts, trying to open up to each other, meaning, to become like one soul.

Will there come a time when we will have to weigh every word and action?

Answer: Do not think about the future. Think about what should be now; open your hearts to each other.
