One might still raise a question, as others have done. Even if one were to
do one's work to perfection, even reaching the level of "dissemination" (which
implies total commitment and self-abnegation), one might question to what
avail is it considering the fact that "you are the least among the
nations," and that there are the "seventy nations" who so outnumber
the "one lamb" -- Israel.
In other words, what will be the world's and the nation's response to the
Jewish efforts at "disseminating the wellsprings to the remotest reaches,"
in an effort to hasten the true and complete Redemption, since they do not
understand what all this means?! Granted, these efforts are noble and sublime,
but one might object, we have to consider the world's reaction!
The answer to these questions is:
The world is ready and completely receptive! When a Jew performs his work
properly, transcending all limits and constraints, and simultaneously channeling
these efforts within the parameters of nature, he will see how the world,
nature and the nations of the world will assist him in his work.
'This is particularly true now that so many of the impediments are no longer
here. (And as was noted earlier, even the Soviet Union has undergone significant
changes for the better.) On the contrary, we are witness to the miracles
and wonders that have occurred, specifically in the last two years (of "miracles"
and of "wonders I shall show him, 5750 and 5751, respectively"). The time
has thus arrived, that notwithstanding the need for supernatural changes
(the miracles and wonders of the true and complete Redemption), these
supernatural energies permeate the nature of the world itself, so that the
world itself assists in the blossoming of the Redemption.
