Question: Can a Kabbalist determine who’s going to cross the Machsom (barrier to spirituality) and who is not? Can this be determined based on a student’s body language or by “seeing” his desire?
My Answer: Everyone is ready to cross the Machsom and has freedom of will in this regard: either to cross on their own and quickly or under pressure and slowly.
Question: What is self-discipline according to Kabbalah?
My Answer: To aim every single minute of one’s time toward drawing closer to the Creator in one’s properties.
Question: You mentioned that doubt (temptation) follows a person around because of unfulfilled desire. What if one is constantly haunted by a partner’s romantic past and their own lack of one? What does this mean and is it possible to resolve?
My Answer: The studies will put everything into balance and provide the right attitude to the eternal spirituality and the transient corporeality.
