What Is the Biggest Strength of Israel?

The people of Israel are facing tough times. This can lead to positive changes, as mentioned in the prophets that difficult days will come, but we will eventually be saved from them: “Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob‘s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it” (Jeremiah 30:7).

From our lowest moments, we can rise, unite, become strong and succeed. We realize that we have no other option but to rise united and succeed, and doing so requires aligning ourselves with—and gaining support from—the laws of nature.

Many already understand that we need to mend our connections and heal the divisions among us. The first step in this direction is gaining awareness of our core problem.

What is our core problem? It is not just that we have divisive drives constantly ebbing and flowing within us. Rather, our core problem is that we agree with our divisive inclinations, letting them run our thoughts and behaviors instead of unifying above them.

I have hope, however, that we will realize unity is our main weapon. It is specifically our unity that we can establish and grow above our divisive drives, which are characteristically big among the people of Israel, and our unity above our strong divisive drives makes our unity incredibly powerful.

If we start using the power of our unity, we can overcome any obstacle. Moreover, by uniting above our divisions, we cause great positive shifts in human consciousness, spreading the unifying tendency to humanity at large.

We cannot give up because we have not yet even started our true war, which is against our innate divisive drives that reside in each of us. We cannot avoid this war on our divisiveness, as we do not fight for ourselves, nor for our own survival, but for a greater purpose. We need to see each and every one of us, the people of Israel, as soldiers in an army that fights to constantly rise in unity above our divisions. By doing so, we align ourselves with the laws of nature, i.e., laws of love, bestowal and connection, and gain support from nature’s supreme harmonizing forces.

The forces of love, bestowal and connection are the greatest and most powerful forces in existence. When we embrace them, we become victorious. Our success depends on our inner unity above our divisive drives and the connection of our hearts.

Unity is thus indeed the people of Israel’s biggest strength and our most potent weapon.
