Question: I have been interested in different spiritual beliefs and spiritual methods for over twenty years. At some point, I came across your books about the wisdom of Kabbalah and what they said matched what was going on in my life to such an extent that I wanted to read the sources, and in order to do so have learned enough words in Hebrew so that I can read the relevant literature.
Thus, I read Talmud Eser Sefirot and “The Tree of Life” in Hebrew. Of course I didn’t understand most of what it says, but I do have impressions of it that I remember. Lately, however, I began to notice many things and it was very similar to what I have read in Kabbalah books. I remember the Kabbalistic description of the world of Atzilut, which is an outcome of the Direct Light, and Atik through which Light from the world of Ein Sof (Infinity) passes to the world of Atzilut. I would like to ask you whether this is a Kabbalistic experience of what is described as the world of Atzilut?
Answer: Nothing of what you describe resembles what really happens when the upper world is revealed in the mutual attribute of connection and bestowal of Kabbalists. You need a true environment and a teacher.
