There Are No Idols In Kabbalah

There Are No Idols In KabbalahA question I received: I don’t know why, but the more I listen to you, the more I fall in love with you. I just can’t understand it. How do you do it? The more I listen to you, the more I want to keep listening. What’s your secret?

My Answer: This has got nothing to do with me – it’s the Light you receive from the source texts (the books) that we use for our studies. I recommend not focusing your attention on the teacher or instructor, but instead looking “through” him, and through the material and the idea, to see the Creator, the quality of bestowal, of love for your neighbor!

This is why when I publish letters and questions I receive on this blog, I usually omit the words of gratitude and other such statements. There are no idols in Kabbalah. In fact, we don’t even know where Moses’s grave is located. It’s because everything must point only to the Creator. In addition, one shouldn’t imagine Him as as an image (according to the prohibition of making a graven image), but as the quality of bestowal and love.
