According to Kabbalah we are all connected. We are all part of a single vessel that shattered and we ended up here to learn how to receive in order to bestow. But we can't do it alone, we need other people to help us.
In the last century there has been an awakening of humanity. We are suddenly starting to realize that we are all connected and need each other. What happened in Haiti and Chili could happen here today. We need each other. Could that be in part because Kabbalah was opened to the public in the last century, more souls have gone through partial "tikkun", and come back with that idea already ingrained in them?
