Connecting With The Light

Dr. Michael Laitman with studentsAll books written by the Kabbalists can give me the Light that Reforms. The greatest force of Light descends on me when we read The Zohar; this is when the connection with the Light occurs.

However, the Light acts only if all of us together desire to attain mutual guarantee, unity, love, and become “as one man in one heart,” similar to the Creator. How well we understand is not important. If I am unable to unite, the Force will come from Above and do it.

As soon as I start feeling connected to all the others to the smallest degree, the spiritual world will be revealed to me in that connection. This occurs within us in the same way as a person who was unconscious starts coming back to consciousness and realizes where he truly is.

Concealment disappears, and I feel that this reality of which I wasn’t previously aware has always been and still is here. This depends solely on my desire to be connected with the rest of its parts. In the correct relationship between us, I find the true reality.

Kabbalists on Kabbalists, Part 2

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

Who Is a Kabbalist?

The wisdom of truth is conditioned
[in order to understand it] by all the teachings [therefore, the wisdom of Kabbalah becomes revealed only after humanity reveals all the teachings of our world in general and attests to their limitation], and all the teachings are conditioned by it [humanity will learn the origins of all teachings precisely from discovering and mastering Kabbalah]. This is why we do not find a single genuine Kabbalist without comprehensive knowledge in all the teachings of the world [not because they studied them but] since they acquire them from the wisdom of truth itself, as they are included in it.
– Baal HaSulam, “The Teaching of the Kabbalah and Its Essence
