Question: Most new students are very excited and enthusiastic about studying the wisdom of Kabbalah and the method, and see it as the salvation for their lives. All are distinguished by the fact that they were led to search for the meaning of life. I came because of an inability to escape the oppressiveness of egoism.
I am perplexed and confused because I had a non-standard beginning than all the rest. They were inspired. They were all searching for the meaning of life. But I came because there was no way I could go on like this. Is my way normal?
Answer: There are many ways to reach the Creator, ways we don’t choose but through which the Creator conducts us. Feeling a need to be released from the ego is a very advanced feeling and indicates a person who is close to the goal!
