Kabbalists On The Essence Of The Wisdom Of Kabbalah, Part 11

Dr. Michael LaitmanDear Friends, please ask questions about these passages of the great Kabbalists. I promise to answer them. The comments within brackets are mine.

The Reality Contained in the Wisdom of Kabbalah

I have already written in several places that there is not a single word of our sages, not even in the prophetic wisdom of Kabbalah, that relies [exclusively] on theoretical bases [are based on reflection detached from matter]. This is because [everything comes only from one’s personal practical attainment based on sensation and one’s investigation].
– Baal HaSulam, “Body and Soul

The need for Kabbalah is great [in order to attain the purpose of creation which we will have to achieve willingly or not, as it is predetermined in the Thought of Creation] and hence, we must know it [for choosing a preferable path of correcting our egoism not by suffering but by the Light] as it is said: “Know today and bring into your heart that the Lord is the Creator of all.” [That is, put the Creator, the property of bestowal and love, into your heart, your desires]. Meaning we should know [attain by ourselves practically] not just through faith [speculatively, theoretically], but through notions aligned with the heart [desires].
– Ramchal, The Book, The Wars of Moses, pg.1, Item 1
