A Simpler Interpretation Of The Secret Of Life

Dr. Michael LaitmanThe only thing we have to correct is our relationship with the upper force that controls everything and manages life, as it says: “There is none else besides Him.” There are four languages that speak about the relationship between man and the upper force: Pshat, Remez, Drush, and Sod (Torah, Mishnah, Talmud, and Kabbalah).

They belong to the four levels of the desire: still, vegetative, animate, and speaking, and accordingly the clarification is in four ways. In this case there is already an opposite division in which the wisdom of Kabbalah is the simple interpretation and not Sod (secret) in which everything is revealed to a person. So we need the language of Kabbalah in order to be sure that we advance correctly.

It is an essential precondition, but it isn’t enough since the wisdom of Kabbalah can be perceived incorrectly. But at least a person learns from the right sources, which provide him with the right approach to the writings, although there are people who try to extract some secrets, mysticism, abstract knowledge, blessings, and remedies.

But still it is very important to stick to the language of Kabbalah and to the Kabbalistic approach and study conditions, since it is different from the ordinary study of different sciences. Here we are totally dependent on the source, which passes us this spiritual knowledge. If the source is real and reliable, we advance gradually according to our exertion and the positive external conditions in order to eventually attain the opening of the eyes.

We study about ourselves and about our nature by starting to feel a little what bestowal is, the force that is opposite from us. Then by the balance of these two forces, the force of receiving and the force of bestowal, we begin to feel the creation. Thus we attain the Creator by His actions upon us.

  1. You explain how there are 4 languages that speak about the relationship between man and the Upper Force…

    Tell me, where does the New Testament fit into there…? Is that part of Torah, since Mashiach Yeshua is the Torah(AlephTav) made into human flesh…?

    I feel this is where your group falls short in the larger Kabbalistic group… Most of all the hierarchy of the Catholic Church practice Kabbalah since they are Masonic and Masons study Kabbalah. Yet they study Kabbalah with the focus on the Messiah of Israel, Jesus Christ(Yeshua HaMashiach).

    Have you fallen from grace and denied the gift of God, the sacraficial lamb that took away the sins of the world…?
