The wisdom of Kabbalah is not a religion. It is not mysticism nor a healing method. It has no magical ability to perform miracles and is neither magic nor any dark force. The wisdom of Kabbalah doesn’t help one person acquire an advantage over other people. On the contrary, under its influence, a person becomes loving and caring about others.
The wisdom of Kabbalah directs us toward perceiving the upper world, and accordingly, all of the initial parameters in a person are changed, meaning his characteristics and attitude towards our world and all of creation. It changes the person into an absolutely different creature. His intellect (thoughts) and heart (desires) become completely different and he begins to think, behave, and feel in an absolutely different manner than a regular person.
On the one hand, an immense perception of the entire world exists within him. On the other hand, it is difficult for him to live in this world just as it is difficult for an adult to live in a kindergarten, for he is forced constantly to make great efforts to balance himself with the little children. However, along with the upper world, he must also exist in our world. Moreover, he doesn’t show his uniqueness at all and must make compromises at all times.
A Kabbalist cannot be someone’s enemy. In fact, he is the best friend of all of humanity, for his every inclination is directed toward bringing humanity toward a happy and perfect existence.
