In our world we are born and grow next to adults who love us. We don’t understand what they demand of us, but we follow their example. We mimic all their actions and words without understanding their meaning; understanding comes afterward. This is arranged by nature: We learn from participation rather than with our minds.
This is the most natural means that allows us to learn about the world we exist in, and this is how we enter the spiritual world as well. The same system is prepared for us: We have a spiritual “father and mother” who present the text of The Book of Zohar to us.
Even if we don’t understand what we have read, the reading itself along with the desire to understand and an aspiration to grow spiritually develops us like babies, and we gradually begin to perceive the text. All the names and titles that we don’t comprehend at first gradually become clearer. We start to understand the language of the spiritual world just as we learned our corporeal language from our mothers.
Therefore, it is necessary to know that “not the clever one learns” and attains the spiritual world, but only those who insistently refuse to leave The Book of Zohar and try to come back to it time and again in order to reveal and understand what it is trying to tell them.
