Answer: We perform many actions in our lives. I begin this life and end it, but do I know what I am living for? No. Do I know today what to do with my life tomorrow? Not really.
It is like entering a small door in a giant house and getting lost there, not knowing when I can get out of all of the rooms and whether I entered them by mistake or not. We don’t know how to determine our good fate by ourselves.
The wisdom of Kabbalah gives us the map of life, and you can use it like an atlas.
Suppose you go on a vacation to some foreign land. You look at the map of that country, the map of the city you are in, and it is clear to you where you are and how to maximize the pleasure of spending this vacation to miss nothing: to see the sites, taste their local dishes, etc. Even for this week, you don’t want to waste a thing.
We have entered a place called this world, and how we are going to spend the time here doesn’t seem to worry us.
The wisdom of Kabbalah gives you a map according to which you can see where you are and discover where everything that is good and wonderful is. Why should you roam the streets aimlessly exposed to dangerous and dirty places?!
You can choose the good way and attain the best conditions. There is always a choice to some extent. Everyone can choose what is suitable for him according to the root of his soul. This is exactly what the wisdom of Kabbalah enables us to do.
Up to now, we have developed in a very simple manner. Everyone acquired a certain profession in order to make money, to have a family, and to succeed. Today, we have outgrown this development. We don’t want simply to have a family or a profession. We want to discover something that is more internal. And that is why we need the wisdom of Kabbalah that will guide us correctly in the search for meaning in life.
