“Not all parts of the Torah are the same with regard to the Light that they contain.” The wisdom of Kabbalah presents them in its own way: It retrieves from the Torah the most important aspects that relate to the development of the soul and conveys them in its own language.
There are four different languages to present the Torah, the method of correction (“Torah” comes from the word Ora’a, instruction): Sod, Remez, Drush, and Peshat (secret, insinuation, interpretation, and literal understanding). Kabbalah, the most precise language, best explains the method.
Kabbalah does not convey the method with descriptions of our world, laws of the earthly behavior, or fairy tale situations (which all portray in a way distant from the modern person). Hence, we use the works of the Kabbalists, works that are closer to modern man: The Book of Zohar, which is the commentary on the Pentateuch, and all the other books that originated from The Zohar (the works of the ARI, Ramchal, Agra, and Baal HaSulam).
After studying the works of the Kabbalists, we can proceed with the text of the Torah and understand what it is talking about. Surely, the entire Torah describes our sequential states, meaning the states of our souls in the World of Atzilut.
