The Importance of Disseminating the Wisdom of Kabbalah
Be strong my friend, shining the Light of the concealed wisdom in the world. Now the days are near when all will know and recognize that the salvation of Israel [those who aspire to the Creator] and the salvation of the entire world [those who do not aspire to Him yet] depend only on the appearance of the wisdom of the hidden [by our egoism] Light of the internality of the secrets of Torah [Kabbalah] in a clear language.
– Rav Kook, Letters 1, 92
The tendency of revealing the secrets of Torah is the ideal goal in life and in reality. The darkness, with which the contents of sanctity are covered [by these secrets], causes man’s spirit to diminish, minimizing his aspirations. Thus, he is depleted, the whole of society weakens by the weakening of the individuals, and the nation becomes impoverished of spirit by the draining of its children’s’ spirit.
– Rav Kook, Orot HaKodesh [The Lights of Sanctity] 1, 142
The tenor of life is to attain [the property of bestowal] adhesion with Him, strictly [with the intention] for the sake of benefitting the Creator, or to reward the public with achieving adhesion with Him.
– Baal HaSulam, “The Solution”
