Question: I have always felt that some kind of higher force exists that moves everything. But we don’t feel it clearly, and of course not everybody feels that it exists. Why isn’t it revealed? Is it hiding from us?
Answer: That is what is written, “…a God who conceals….” (Isaiah 45:15). But the problem is that we must be adapted to the discovery of this higher force, the Creator.
Of all the forms in nature in which we live, we perceive only a small fraction, a minute fragment of all of nature, depending on how much enters our five senses; seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching. By expanding the range of absorption of these five senses, with the help of all kinds of different instruments, we feel a bit more, we see greater distances, hear other frequency ranges, via the radio, etc.
To perceive the higher force, the Creator, we also need to expand our perceptive apparatus; otherwise we don’t identify this force. Likewise, around us exists a multitude of natural phenomena that we cannot recognize.
So there is a method called the Wisdom of Kabbalah (Kabbalah is from the word “reception”), which helps us to receive, to discover, the higher force. And therefore, it is also called the secret wisdom because everything that was hidden before our involvement with this method becomes revealed.
So when a person is involved with the study of the wisdom of Kabbalah, it expands his senses in the right direction towards discovering the Creator, discovering the higher force. The person begins to feel it and then all of his questions are resolved. He understands why he is alive, how to live in the right way, what it is possible to achieve in this life, and his life begins to be happier, because he no longer lives like a poor blind person dwelling in total darkness.
