Looking Into The Faces Of Kabbalists

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: If Kabbalists experience an enormous spiritual pleasure from reading The Study of the Ten Sefirot, then why can’t we tell by looking at you that you feel this way? Why do you appear to be so calm?

Answer: And what do you want to see, what kind of Kabbalistic emotions, something external? It makes sense that we are used to seeing people’s emotions. But it is not the case when we are referring to true spiritual feelings.

The fact is that so far you are receiving impressions from the spiritual in the form of the Surrounding Light, in your egoistic Kelim, or a small highlight in the prepared clothing of Hassadim from above due to the screen of the Upper.

And for this reason you either do not feel or recognize this Light at all, or you feel it but as some corporeal pleasure, and this is why your feelings can be seen externally.

But spiritual pleasure from bestowal does not show on the outside in any way on the person receiving it! This is because he receives this entire enormous pleasure inside the clothing created by the opposite force. And they lock one another; the Direct Light clothes in the reverse Light and the desire, which is restricted. And this is why externally it goes completely unnoticed.

And a regular person does not perceive the spiritual world for the same exact reason…
