Kabbalah is called “the science of reception” because it leads us to the attainment of eternal happiness, tranquility, serenity, peace, fulfillment, knowledge, and boundless love.
How can we make our lives like this? This is the very question that this method – the science of Kabbalah – should give us a clear answer to, by becoming our teacher and helping us reach this state. It is said that Kabbalah is primarily intended for men. This was, however, only the case in previous generations, which preserved and developed this method in order to bring it to us and make it suitable for use in our time.
Today, we see that women have suffered from the world’s development far more than men. Woman lost her home, which protected her, and her children, who lived nearby and stayed close to her. She has lost her ties to her parents and grandchildren. Woman, representing ‘‘home,” has lost her entire foundation, and is far more empty than a man in her present-day life. Man, on the contrary, became free from the family, and received a bunch of ”toys” and opportunities to fill his time.
It’s not surprising that out of the masses of people who suffer from depression, women make up the majority. After all, a man receives pleasure simply from looking at women, whereas a woman experiences no such pleasure from looking at a man. She needs a deeper connection with him.
Since it’s difficult to answer women’s deeply internal demands, they thus suffer more. A woman’s ability to tolerate is much greater than a man’s, which is why we don’t feel women’s suffering in its true form.
