A question I received: The science of Kabbalah teaches us about the structure of the spiritual worlds, and the feeling a person gets when he reaches the degree of “human.” However, when he attains this degree, he knows all the things that Kabbalists have revealed. Otherwise, they would not have been able to write all of their books. So why study the science of Kabbalah, if one can reach this state on his own?
My Answer: We study the science of Kabbalah in order to reach this faster. Otherwise, we would be like a child in our world who has to begin his life as a prehistoric human, having to rediscover the same laws and go through the same development all over again. We are preparing the world and creating a system of educating our children, so they will be ready for the spiritual world.
