Questions I received about the study of Kabbalah:
Question: Most people don’t understand what Kabbalah is talking about. So maybe we should bring Kabbalah to them in a simpler form? What is the best way to approach this? My own experience shows that only systematic study can give you the right understanding of the material.
My Answer: You are right. In the end, after all our efforts, only the Light corrects us and gives us the understanding and perception of a new world. In order for this to happen, you have to be persistent, persevering on the path and going in the right direction. This is something that comes from the group or the environment. So, the bottom line is: you need a teacher, books, a group – and patience!
Question: You know, you were right – a Kabbalah student experiences feelings he never dreamed of. As he counters his egoism, the happiness felt by his friends (brothers) gives him immeasurable happiness, and then you think, “Who could have imagined a world that isn’t filled with the Creator?” I am very grateful. Thank you.
My Answer: I am glad that you are beginning to attain Nature.
Question: Is it possible to balance reason and the heart?
My Answer: The study, which evokes the Upper Surrounding Light (Ohr Makif) to the necessary measure, causes one’s reason and desire to grow. But we are talking about the reason and the desire that belong to the Upper World, where you can perceive the Creator.
