Sensual Attainment

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: You said that about 10% of the people who come to study Kabbalah are drawn to The Study of the Ten Sefirot. Do we need to consciously raise the importance of reading the original sources if a person is attracted to it from the beginning? Or is circulation above everything else in our time?

Answer: In other words, 10% of those who come to Kabbalah want to study it as a science, to climb the mountain of knowledge, and to understand it with the mind. The rest don’t. Yet, the latter are the ones who do advance forward unlike the 10% who simply study and that’s it.

The study has to be sensual, attained from life. When you enter this system, you exist in it, adapt to it, sense everything, and start understanding it from your sensation. You start working with it by being in it. By connecting with other souls, you begin to understand what this connection with a fellow human being is all about, why it is mandatory, and so on. In other words, all of this is actually a direct, natural, sensual knowledge. I wish all of us to come closer to it.

This is a special year, a special time. We have entered a stage of true practical Kabbalah, when we attain this entire system inside of humanity, which is beginning to unfold now, like linked cogwheels. And we have to take part in it, discover it, and help all others.

  1. Also, the more a person gives or annuls their ego for the sake of putting someone else’s desires above their own, the more egoistic things seem unnatural. Even time seems to change. We’re encouraged to be egoistic and do egoistic things all the time, so we feel we always have to be doing something other than giving, or that there is something that we need to be doing that is egoistic. But once we begin to cancel our ego and put others above ourselves, it’s like there’s a whole lot of time to do things, because there really isn’t all those egoistic things we need to be doing. Strange how things switch around that way, but they do.
