None of the Kabbalistic texts are intended for us to understand anything written in them because it is impossible for our earthly mind to understand the Kabbalists’ explanations. These texts are written from the height of a completely different, opposite mind – one that’s based on bestowal instead of reception. This is a completely different program, a different understanding and direction of thoughts.
No matter what we do, we won’t understand these texts until we attain the same state that the author is in, or at least a state that’s somewhat similar to his. As long as we are opposite to the author by our having opposite qualities, this opposition rejects everything we can receive from the texts.
I am not talking about the articles and letters by Kabbalists where they speak about our states before we enter the spiritual world. These texts are intended to prepare us for the spiritual world, to tell us how to enter it, to help form us, and to accompany us on the spiritual path. However, texts such as Talmud Eser Sefirot, The Book of Zohar, and The Tree of Life, which describe the spiritual world to us, are talking about the higher state that we can feel only when we correspond to the laws of the spiritual world, the laws of bestowal.
If we reveal the quality of bestowal, the net of connection between us just like between the cells of one organism, then inside this net, we will reveal laws, states, and pictures of the Upper World that the Kabbalists tell us about. Then we will understand all the words they wrote in The Book of Zohar and Talmud Eser Sefirot because they are talking about what we will see, feel, and reveal.
The entire Torah will become the Torah of life for me and I will reveal it inside my desires because my desires and thoughts will be arranged with each other and together with the desires and thoughts of other souls. This will happen to the degree I reveal the ability to connect with others and I will see this in the Book. Then the book will become a guide for me, since the Torah comes from the word “Oraa” – a guide or instruction manual. We will reveal the entire body of the common soul of Adam and all the connections between his organs.
Therefore, when reading The Zohar we have to attain the sensation that we really are connected together, and that inside the inner, global, integral connection between us we now reveal the forms of this connection. This is what The Zohar tells us about.
The Zohar talks only about the forms of connection on the still, vegetative, animate, and human levels inside the net connecting our souls. It doesn’t say a word about animals, plants, and inanimate objects of this world. There is nothing besides the souls. All the descriptions of inanimate objects, plants, animals, and people are talking only about the The Book of Zohar and Talmud Eser Sefirot.
When our points in the heart, our desires, our aspirations to unity among us, come together correctly, then we will reveal everything written in The Zohar. We will reveal it in the connection between us. What we reveal is called “the World of Infinity” – the world of infinite, unbounded connection among all people.
Let us try to imagine this between us!
