I am glad that I have been born in such a generation when it is permitted to disclose the wisdom of truth. And should you ask, “How do I know that it is permitted?” I will reply that I have been given permission to disclose Kabbalah in the world. And it does not depend on me, but on the state of the generation.
– Baal HaSulam, “The Teaching of the Kabbalah and its Essence”
I am not at all worthy of disclosing such secrets, and much less to thoroughly understand them. And why has the Creator done so to me? It is only because it is the last generation, which stands at the threshold of complete redemption and full revelation of the hidden world.
– Baal HaSulam, “Messiah’s Shofar (horn)”
