How Does Kabbalah Make A Person Free?

Laitman_712.03Question:  How does Kabbalah make a person free?

Answer: Kabbalah reveals to a person the full extent of his lack of freedom and explains the boundaries in which his freedom exists.

In our world, freedom from our egoism, from our nature, which consists of inanimate, vegetative, animate, and speaking parts, is possible. And only the method of Kabbalah delivers this outcome. The method of Kabbalah teaches us how to attract the higher power that lifts us above our animalistic egoism.

In actuality, we are very weak and unable to get away from our egoism. A person cannot pull himself out of a swamp. But with the help of the upper Light, which we can attract upon ourselves, we are pulled out of the material plain.

The so-called AHP of the upper descends onto us into Galgalta ve Eynaim of the one below, and we begin to rise; we transition from within the boundaries of our nature into a higher realm.

But, even there, we are still not free, meaning that we still cannot do whatever we want. Therefore, the concept of absolute freedom does not exist. Only the Creator has absolute freedom, but not the creation.

Creation can be in a state of freedom within its primordial, egotistical nature and, at the same time, seek equivalence of form with the Creator; in other words, seek to increase its attraction to altruism, to bestowal, and to love. In this state, a person feels completely satisfied and fulfilled; he does not have any deficiencies and feels unlimited freedom.

In addition, a person develops a sense of responsibility—he feels obliged to give, to help, and to fulfill others. A person feels that this state of an absolute lack of freedom is actually absolute freedom, achieved every time only by rising above his egoism, above all sorts of flawed sensations.
