Answer: From the point of view of the wisdom of Kabbalah, our lives are divided into two parts.
The first part is responsible for the physical (beastly) state of the person. Concern for the body, offspring, nourishment, security, and so forth, which is to say, everything that a beast is concerned about, the person also is concerned about.
The second part of our lives is the opportunity to attain what is found above our body because we have other needs. If a person feels a need to attain the meaning of life and thinks about how to attain a state in which the higher management, the upper world, the new reality, will be revealed to him, then he comes to the wisdom of Kabbalah.
Today in our system, we already are teaching more than two million people in the world, and these people gradually attain the second half of the meaning of existence, meaning the exit into the upper world.
Along with this, the person continues to work and live in our world, as it is written, “May you see your world in your lifetime” (Berachot 17a) [meaning the upper world], and he will live simultaneously in the two worlds.
The meaning of human existence in the physical world is to attain the upper world and continue to develop within it continuously.
Our world is one of the levels in the great metamorphosis, and the next stage is the upper world from which come all the signals for the management of our world. So, the meaning of our lives is specifically revealed there.
