Can A Kabbalist Lie?

laitman_628_4Question: Does the characteristic of bestowal and love that is acquired by a Kabbalist limit his external behavior somewhat such that he cannot swear, shout, or be insulted?

Answer: It depends on what. A Kabbalist can forgive, and he will necessarily forgive every person for everything, and he will not consider the behavior of a person as an offense, except for what is relevant to the Creator. However, anger, indignation, and impatience exist in a Kabbalist in abundance.

Question: Can a Kabbalist lie?

Answer: Well, I deceive you constantly to attract you more deeply into the wisdom of Kabbalah. It is impossible to lead the ego directly to spiritual development in any manner because it will object. It is possible to overcome it only indirectly, through a “lie.” You cannot imagine how much everything you hear and learn damages our ego.

Question: It is said that spiritual pleasure is the greatest pleasure in our world. Is this a lie?

Answer: Spiritual pleasure is the greatest not only in our world, but in all the worlds, but only after we attain it.
