Answer: If a man truly and seriously advances in spirituality, he needs the help of a woman, just as a woman needs the help of a man. They try to realize mutual completion at all times.
Notably, mutual completion is much more important in the spiritual connection than in the physical one. While in the corporeal world, we give birth to the next generation, in the spiritual connection, we give birth to souls. This is very important mutual cooperation. It is so important that until lately, it was forbidden for a man to study the wisdom of Kabbalah unless he was married. It was considered that he can realize himself only if he is married.
Question: This means that a man cannot attain spirituality without a woman, and a woman without a man?
Answer: Yes, the two systems should be balanced, but it doesn’t mean that they must be husband and wife.
Today, the world is undergoing a transitional process from the state of total ignorance regarding the wisdom of Kabbalah to returning to it and using it for our needs. Because the wisdom of Kabbalah has been concealed from people for many years, they don’t understand it yet.
This is the reason that it is so difficult for us to explain how the wisdom of Kabbalah can play a special role in creating harmony between the two sexes. After all, our world is meant to attain harmony, balance between all of its levels and between them and the upper world, and this is impossible without the fulfillment of the wisdom of Kabbalah.
We can use the wisdom of Kabbalah to help us establish the right family relations, to educate our kids correctly, and to establish good relations between families, between people, between nations, and between all of humanity and nature. The order and balance will be attained only by studying the wisdom of Kabbalah that shows us how it can be done. Otherwise, we disrupt the balance in the entire universe, in the world and in nature.
