We exist in the field of Light (the quality of love and bestowal called the Creator), which fills all the space we occupy, only we can’t sense this Light. In its influence on me, it is like a physical field, whether gravitational, electromagnetic, or electrostatic. If I have a spiritual potential (charge), I begin to move within this field to a point of equilibrium with it.
Just as an electron behaves in an electromagnetic field, a person behaves in any given place: He or she aspires to a state of balance, living in a field of his or her sensations. But sensations are forces, too! We study them in the wisdom of Kabbalah just as others study the influence of physical forces. Except we don’t perceive their existence in our world.
When the point in the heart appears in a person, he begins to move to a place where he can receive the fulfillment this point requires. These people “enter” our groups or “suddenly discover” us on the Internet. It all appears very unexpected to them…. And that’s how they begin to study the wisdom of Kabbalah.
