Engaging in Kabbalah Requires No Preliminary Excellence
During the practice of Torah, every person must labor in it [but not by learning the text by heart], and set his mind and heart to find “the light of the king’s countenance” in it [the Light of correction, Hassadim, and later on, the Light of fulfillment, Hochma, which both are called “the Upper Light”], that is, the attainment of open Providence, called “light of countenance.” And any person is fit for it, as it is written, “those that seek Me shall find Me.”
Thus, one needs nothing in this matter except the labor alone [in attaining the property of bestowal and love].
