The Coming World ... A world of eternal peace, prosperity, and divine bliss. A state of universal enlightenment, where the absolute reality of G-d will permeate every nook and cranny of existence, and bestow all with the ultimate blessing of life—life itself, true essential life in the Presence of G-d.

We bring the Coming World to the surface, where we live right now, the last frontier, the end of the circuit, to make the final connection. Our impatience is only a weakness when we try to dig anew and plant new foundations, trying to reinvent the wheel. But there is no need! It is all set in place perfectly and rearing to go, and our impatience is in fact a gift, a sign from above of what needs to be done, simply to flick the switch, with the flick of the eyelid, to open our eyes and positively radiate the electrifying future into the now ...
