THE TRUE ROLE OF ISRAEL IN THE WORLD
Each “nation” on earth holds a piece of the “truth” puzzle but none alone holds the ultimate truth. The one ultimate truth is humanity.
What role, what piece of the puzzle does the nation called Israel hold?
Consider this compelling tract from the Zohar:
“The Holy One, blessed be He, made Israel the heart of the whole world, and the relationship of Israel to the other nations is as that of the heart to other parts of the body. And just as the other parts of the body have no existence, even for a moment, without the heart, so it is that none of the other peoples can exist in the world without Israel. Jerusalem, too, has the same relationship with the other countries, being as the heart to the parts of the body, which is why it is in the center of the whole world just as the heart is in the center of the limbs.”
THE PRACTICAL APPLICATION
On a practical level, Israel nourishes the Islamic and Christian nations each time an Israelite diminishes his own self interest and transforms his ego from taking to giving. The heart only takes blood in order to recirculate the blood to nourish the other organs. The role of Israelites is to take the Light of the Creator and share it, unconditionally, with our Christian and Muslim brothers. But it is the ego, the selfish, ambitious, internal desire that burns inside of us that tries to convince us to take for ourselves alone.
The Zohar and Rav Yehuda Ashlag, the founder of the Kabbalah Centre are clear: When the Jew allows his ego to rule over his soul (Israelite within) then the Christian and Muslim nations will strive violently to rule over the Israelites. When the Jew allows his soul to rule over his ego, thus becoming a true Israelite, the Christian and Muslim nations will cherish the Israelites, the people of the book. At that point, the one collective body of humanity will be in perfect harmony.
Guess what happens next?
This is how and when we achieve immortality. In case you did not know, the atom is immortal. Atoms never die. The same atoms that were created 15 billion years ago in the Big Bang are the same atoms forming you and I and this world. So if our atoms are immortal, why are we not immortal? One reason: Because our atoms stop bonding when space comes between the atoms. Now the form that is our body disappears and dies even though the individual atoms that create us live on forever.
Wanna know an ancient Kabbalistic secret?
When there is no more space between Israelites, Christians and Muslims, there will be no more space between our immortal atoms and thus immortal existence will become the new reality. That is what we call Messiah.
This is deeply profound, yet simple, and requires further reading over and over again until it becomes emblazoned in our consciousness.
The whole purpose of Zohar is to help the Israelite diminish his ego and repurpose our talents, our drives and our motivations for the purpose of serving others. This is how we remove the space between us. The whole purpose of Zohar is to also radiate Light and energy to our Christian and Muslim brothers. This is how we remove the space between us.
How foolish we all have been these last 2000 years, fighting among ourselves and dying because of it. We have been duped to waging war against each other instead of waging war against our ego and selfish impulses. All this time immortal existence has been waiting for us in that one moment we unite with our fellow man.
And we will not have to worry about being happy or getting what we want when all mankind unites as one. Because the Light is infinite. That means there is an infinite range and diversity of pleasure along with an infinite supply of happiness to fill everyone. No one has to change their personal desires. Each culture, each individual’s personal taste will be fulfilled beyond measure. The only time there is a limited supply of happiness, resources and life itself, is when there is space and conflict between people.
Perhaps this is why Kabbalist Rav Berg and the Zohar refer to the Satan, our adversary and ego, as space. The space that exists between people and then between our atoms is the cause of all pain, suffering and death.
Only the Zohar removes space from the landscape of human nature and the entire planet.
Looks like that all roads lead back — not to Rome — but to the sacred teachings and energy of Zohar.
