Question: In your opinion, has the wisdom of Kabbalah been revealed too early? It is very detached from the modern world. After all, there are more practical methods to achieve, albeit temporary, harmony with the world.
Answer: You will be surprised, but in fact the ban on revealing Kabbalah The Book of Zohar Ari
You will be surprised, but in fact the ban on revealing wisdom of Kabbalah expired in the 16th century. It was hidden from the beginning of the first century BC to the middle of the 16th century when The Book of Zohar reached the hands of the great scientist and Kabbalist the Ari. Since then, the wisdom of Kabbalah gradually began to be accessible to everyone.
But the fact is that it was revealed very slowly, because it was necessary. People shunned and feared it because for centuries Kabbalists themselves hid it by creatingthe myth of the prohibition to engage in Kabbalah, to stay away from it, etc.
The successor of the Ari was the Baal Shem Tov who lived in Eastern Europe. In the last few centuries, beginning with the Ari, most Kabbalists came from that region so the spirit of their great powers remained in those places.
In this way the wisdom of Kabbalah was revealed a long time ago, but specifically now, it is necessary to spread it very widely because the world requires it urgently.The world may not be aware of it yet, but this is not necessary, it will realize the need in a natural way, like the way of wars and terrible problems.
It is better if we spread the method of Kabbalah, publicize it and talk about it more and more frequently so that we will prepare humanity to use it practically when the situation in the world becomes unbearable.
