Question: Does Kabbalah have a patent for how to find enjoyment?
Answer: Our world enables us to enjoy less and less, despite the fact that we make enormous efforts: advertising, TV, all kinds of tricks, sports, leisure, and tourism. A person does everything he can in order to find enjoyment. And nothing. Everything disappears and fades away very quickly. In the past a person was happy with a piece of meat or cheese and some vegetables. Today you walk into a supermarket and there is such an abundance that you don’t know what to choose, and still people have lost the taste in life.
The wisdom of Kabbalah is the wisdom of receiving, of pleasure and satiation. It explores the nature of our world, the desire to enjoy, and teaches a person how to do it correctly.
Why is the wisdom of Kabbalah considered a secret study that is concealed from people? Because people had to undergo a great multi-millennial history in order to find out that they cannot find enjoyment in the framework of our nature, while on the next level, the levels of the spiritual nature, they can be filled with an eternal upper pleasure.
This feeling of eternity is the feeling of the eternal pleasure of perpetual movement in a huge bed of love, comprehension, content, and revelation. This is called the upper world, the next world, the Garden of Eden. This is where the wisdom of Kabbalah is leading us and it is all open for us.
Question: Does a person have to do any special exercises or meditations in order to achieve that?
Answer: No. You don’t need to pray or to meditate, you simply need to study two or three hours at least a couple times a week. You can do every day. We have opened Bnei Baruch Kabbalah Education Centers.
In addition to the study, we also have conventions in different parts of the world, from South America to North America, Europe, Russia, and other countries. Everyone is invited to these conventions, including those who have just begun to study.
The most important is the study of the correct mutual interaction between people because this is how you begin to understand how the system of connections in the upper world is built. It is opposite from our system, and pushes people to get closer to one another. It is actually in the connection between us that we find the entrance to the upper world.
