Questions I received on changing one’s name, astrology, clairvoyants, time, death, and homosexuality:
Question: My parents changed their last name from Kroni to Karni in order to make it sound better and simpler. My daughter Noga was born on 02.07.2003. Will the name Noga Karni be favorable to her?
My Answer: This is not a question for a Kabbalist. Kabbalah engages only in the correction of egoism, human nature.
Question: What do you think about the science of Astrology?
My Answer: I don’t value it.
Question: Mediums or clairvoyants are people who have the ability to “see” things that others can’t. What is the difference between them and Kabbalists, who have developed the sixth sense?
My Answer: People will extrasensory perception and people who are close to nature are, in fact, able to “see” things about people. However, they can only see the things that relate to a person’s animate or earthly essence. Kabbalists don’t see these things. Instead, they engage in correcting the soul and pay no attention to the body.
Question: If time doesn’t exist, does this mean we are already united?
My Answer: Yes, but not in our perceptions.
Question: What is death?
My Answer: It is the end of one’s sensation within the egoistic desire at the level of this world.
Question: My cousin is a homosexual. What should he do if he really wants to study Kabbalah? The Creator gave him a desire – an attraction for other men, and you always say that we don’t have any power over our desires because everything comes from Him.
My Answer: He can study. The Light will correct whatever needs to be corrected.
