Kabbalah deals with the correction of the soul. Everyone has a soul, but a hidden one. It is the desire to know the purpose of life. When this desire awakens enough so as to lead a person to the place of studying Kabbalah, it means that the soul has started to unfold. Such an individual feels the need of the wisdom of Kabbalah. Otherwise, he will not be able to cultivate his soul, and it will remain a mere point, which will trigger the pressure of the driving forces experienced as suffering.
The purpose of our life is to discover and develop our soul in order to establish a connection with the Creator. Hence, it doesn’t matter what natural capacities a person possesses. Some gravitate toward sciences, others to culture and education; one needs a primitive mechanical job, and another philosophy.
There are lazy, agile, and smart individuals. But there is absolutely no connection between all these corporeal characteristics and the development of the soul. Kabbalah says: “Not the wise one learns.” I myself value knowledge and a scientific approach, but I have seen how it can tangle a person. Therefore, there are no restrictions; the key is the desire!
Only the point in the heart matters, which is nurtured by the force of the Light and is not one of the corporeal properties of man. There is absolutely no relation between natural capacities, habits, education, or success in correcting one’s soul.
