Question: I am an ordinary person and just want to live in peace. I get life’s blows from time to time but never think about the purpose of life. I see people studying Kabbalah and it does them good. But I just want to live in peace. Do I have to study Kabbalah too?
Answer: Yes, you do. It’s because the wisdom of Kabbalah will tell you how to attain a peaceful life. You don’t have to seek the Creator, the future world, or the spiritual worlds. But someone who does seek those will receive them. If you wish solely for comfort, you will have it.
Since the wisdom of Kabbalah leads a person to harmony with all, everyone will receive what they wish from such a state. It is called “Man” (manna) that “sustains in the desert” (the empty will to receive), and everyone obtains the desired taste in it.
You desire a peaceful life? Here you go! If you wish it the other way around, a life full of adventures, you will get it as well!
Question cont.: What if I want a million dollars?
Answer: A million dollars is a sensation of pleasure, not the amount of “green” paper bills. You will receive pleasure equal to that of having a million dollars for it merely measures to what degree we are filled.
