For The Good Of The Common Soul

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: We go through various stages. Earlier you talked about the need to study the Kabbalistic sources, and now you pay more attention to integral education

Answer: I do not deny what I once said. I see in this the sequence of our movement towards the creation of the common Kli (vessel). There is no contradiction.

I come to the class in the morning and do not know what we will study, not the topic, nothing; it’s not important to me; in principle, we study the same thing. The same material is repeated all the time, although, for example, Rabash has a huge number of articles, many of which we haven’t opened or read. The Study of the Ten Sefirot contains whole volumes that we have never studied either, and so on.

Moreover, apart from the works of Baal HaSulam and Rabash, there are many interesting books on Kabbalah that we do not touch. We just have no time for this, and frankly, we do not need it. We have to be involved in attainment instead of studying all the Kabbalistic literature that was created before us. It’s impossible to learn all of it. There are dozens, even hundreds, of true Kabbalistic sources, but not all the Kabbalists could present material well, although they were great in the attainment of the upper world. However, presenting materials in an accessible manner requires other qualities. Even Moses talked about his difficulties because he could not express himself well.

This is why practically we study only the most necessary. And I rely on the students in this. They select the material and establish the external form of the lesson, but the inner content of the lesson is going according to a certain line. So, there is no deviation.
