The Light Affects Us No Matter What State We Are In

the-machsom-is-the-same-everywhere-even-in-japanTwo questions I received about beginning Kabbalah study:

Question: Do we need to have the point in the heart before we can begin to correct ourselves and our relationships with others?

My Answer: No. You can begin in any state.

Question: I have a group of five to six people who do not have Internet, and so I am giving them Kabbalah lessons in Spanish with recorded lessons of the ARI Learning Center in my computer. I am giving them the first 15 lessons. Is this OK and can I give them the virtual lessons I took before or the new one starting in January?

My Answer: It does not matter. Let them listen to any lessons, even those intended for very advanced students. The Light always works and its effect does not depend on understanding. It’s more important to pay attention to the teacher.

The Most Essential Necessity Of Life

essential Faith above reason is the new system of relationships that we have to establish in the world, because without it we could never build the connection between us necessary for our survival. The new state of humanity that is being revealed today is not just a discovery that the world is global and integral, but also a realization that we have to get to know the Upper Force (the Creator). He has to be the governing force among us that will connect us all with each other and with all the levels of reality (still, vegetative, animate, and human).

When this force fills the space between us, we will be able to save ourselves. Otherwise, we will never be able to do it. Even in the face of death, we won’t be able to connect with each other in the way that Nature demands from us. Through the crisis, the Creator shows us that He is not among us; this is also called “the breaking of the common soul.”

We have to discover that the only thing we need is the Creator, the Force that will be revealed to fill the vacuum between us and connect all parts of the universe in the right way. This Upper Force is the most essential necessity of absolutely everyone’s life. Everyone will realize that without it, we simply won’t be able to survive.

In the same manner we are now becoming aware that we have to connect with each other and feel others as ourselves. Otherwise we destroy nature and harm ourselves by harming others, because we are all connected.

This is the realization that Kabbalah wants to reveal and elucidate to all so that people can reach it easier and quicker.

The Cure For Every Disease

lifeTwo questions I received on mental and physical illness:

Question: How does Kabbalah explain mental illness and how can it be solved if not through conventional methods (which as we know do not seem to work)?

My Answer: Only the general correction will save us from these illnesses.

Question: Why does the Creator force us to be consumed with the physical body by giving us terribly painful conditions and deformities that we cannot fix in this world? He wants to raise us to Godliness, but forces us to live despicable lives where the troubles of the body prevent us from even functioning in this world. Why is this so?

My Answer: We cause all the diseases ourselves by our unwillingness to correct ourselves. See Items 69-71 of “Introduction to The Book of Zohar.”
