Kabbalists On The Essence Of The Wisdom Of Kabbalah, Part 8

Dr. Michael LaitmanDear Friends, please ask questions about these passages from the great Kabbalists. I promise to answer them. The commentaries in brackets are mine.

All the Teachings in the World Are Included in the Wisdom of Kabbalah

Since the whole of the wisdom of Kabbalah speaks of the revelation of the Creator [the reason for the Creator’s concealment], naturally, there is nothing more successful teaching for its task. [The whole of reality is the Creator. The present reality is His concealment. The only real action is revelation of Him.]
– Baal HaSulam, “The Teaching of the Kabbalah and Its Essence

However, understanding the meaning of the word, “spirituality,” [sensed in the property of bestowal and love] has nothing to do with philosophy. This is because how can they discuss something that they have never seen or felt? [After all, they do not have a goal to be corrected and do not research the new reality in the corrected properties.] What do their rudiments [about the attainment of the Upper World, the Creator] stand on?

If there is any definition that can tell spiritual from corporeal, it belongs only to those who have attained a spiritual thing and felt it. These are [only] the genuine Kabbalists; [this is because they are the only ones who are engaged in self-correction and after that, they sense and research the Upper World according to their similarity to it] thus, it is the wisdom of Kabbalah that we need.
– Baal HaSulam, “The Wisdom of Kabbalah and Philosophy
