Q: I have heard some very dire predictions about this coming year. I’m feeling nervous. How does Kabbalah relate to these predictions for the coming year?
A: We should not become confused or concerned by any pessimistic forecasts about this year, or any year. When relating to a new phenomenon, such as a new year, we must try to grasp its inner depth and beauty and positive renewal. It is important to think good thoughts. This particular year promises a great spectrum of very good events to which we look forward with joy. May we soon realize all of this great potential.
