When we read The Book of Zohar, we have to demand spiritual elevation. The demand can happen even through our sensation of being close to this book, the feeling that we value it, that we want it to shines upon us and perform changes inside us.
Sometimes this feeling is very difficult to attain; it comes only after a few hours of studying. Nevertheless, it still has a great effect when we constantly apply effort in trying to feel the words of the text inside ourselves. As a result, we awaken the Light that Reforms. Gradually our effort adds up and the law of “I labored and found” goes into effect. We only need patience because nothing else will help.
