The world is starting to understand where it is. We are starting to agree with the fact that the future will be no better than it is today, and the next generation will be far worse off than we are.
We have passed our peak period of corporeal progress, and we are currently in a withdrawal period with nothing good waiting for us in the future.
We will thus bear witness to more and more negative phenomena across the board, such as rising depression, loneliness, anxiety, stress, drug abuse, suicide rates and a general atmosphere of despair.
Today, it has become more and more commonplace to look at our children and think, “What a shame that they were born! Look at the kind of world they are growing up into! What kind of world are we leaving for them!?” We thus need to learn what lies ahead for us, and to do so very quickly.
Kabbalists wrote about the major transition period our world has entered a long time ago, and described the comprehensive solution for how we can improve our lives: a method for positively connecting with each other above our growing egoistic and divisive drives.
Therefore, the world is deteriorating in order to show us that the current way we live our lives—in increasing inner detachment from one another—leads us to nothing good, and that changing direction to a positive course depends solely on breaking down the walls between us. By connecting to each other, we will discover a better future.
