Kabbalists On The Language Of Kabbalah, Part 6

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

The Wisdom of Kabbalah Does Not Speak of Our Corporeal World

There is a strict condition during the engagement in this wisdom [Kabbalah] – to not materialize the matters [that are described in the Torah and especially in Kabbalah] with imaginary and corporeal issues [of our world]. This is because thus [by imagining that things described in the Torah exist in this world] they breach, “Thou shall not make unto thee a graven image, nor any manner of likeness.” In that event [such studying of the Torah], one is rather harmed [distanced further away from spirituality] instead of receiving benefit [which is why it is said: “It’s preferable to sit idle and do nothing”].
– Baal HaSulam, “Introduction to The Study of the Ten Sefirot
