A question I received: You say the solution to the global crisis lies in studying and disseminating the science of Kabbalah, because this will change people’s desires from the corporeal pleasures such as money, power, and knowledge, to the spiritual pleasures – fulfillment by love and bestowal. These spiritual pleasures are not perceived inside one’s egoism and are therefore eternal and perfect. Did I understand this correctly?
My Answer: Kabbalah’s only function is to help us understand the purpose of our development and to choose the quick and easy path to go through it – the Path of Light. Otherwise, we will be forced to do this by pressure – tremendous and long-term suffering (the Path of Suffering). Our only choice is: which of these two paths will we take to reach our predetermined goal?
