Answer: The two worlds are integrated in a person.
Question: I am a doctor and relieve the suffering of patients. Since suffering pushes a person toward understanding the meaning of life and his egoistic nature, am I violating the thought of the Creator in this way?
Answer: It is said that permission has been given to the doctor to heal. The fact that you are relieving the suffering of patients entered the thought of the Creator from the beginning.
Question: Why do they say that thought is physical?
Answer: It is precisely because thought builds the physical world for us. Our entire world is a single thought. Even astronomers and cosmologists attest to feeling that nature and space are thought. Everything around us is thought.
Question: How can I love what someone else loves? Do I just ask him, or do I give him what he loves?
Answer: This is a more complicated matter. First, it is up to you to make Tzimtzum Aleph (the first restriction) on yourself, meaning that you don’t take your feelings into account at all. Then you already begin to receive your feelings from above Tzimtzum Aleph. And then you begin to feel the others within them.
Question: Why isn’t it possible for a person to remember his previous lives, or do they not exist?
Answer: In fact, there are no past lives. Basically these are impressions that have been inscribed so that we will finally reach the right decision.
Question: How is it possible to explain the expression, “The Creator said”; how can He speak if this is a force?
Answer: This is an expression of His desire. The desire of the Creator is revealed when the creature comes to resemble Him.
Question: What is the thread that joins the physical and spiritual world?
Answer: The connection or the characteristic that connects the two worlds is called Zeir Anpin. It serves as a conduit through which energy passes from the upper world to the lower world and from the lower world to the upper world. The upper world is Bina, the lower world is Malchut, and Zeir Anpin is found between them.
Question: Must I get used to the thought that my “self” is not my body, or should I wait until I will feel this clearly?
Answer: This must be discovered inside of you. There is no need to think about and imagine it. If you want to get the right intention, it is up to you to work only in a group according to the method in our workshops. Then you will feel advancement.
Question: Why did I have less resistance when I was exposed to religion for the first time in contrast to the wisdom of Kabbalah?
Answer: Religion is an egoistic method that “closes” the person in our world. It directs a person to work for its sake and to attain the upper world after death. Kabbalah believes that the religions, first Judaism, after that Christianity, and then Islam, don’t allow a person to develop properly. The religions were created by people following an egoistic attitude and interpretation of the wisdom of Kabbalah.
Question: If a person doesn’t discover the sixth sense in his lifetime, must he be born again on the face of the Earth?
Answer: Baal HaSulam wrote that we are already in the period of the Last Generation. It is up to us to invest the maximal amount of effort, and then only a significant ascent into the upper world is ahead for us. I invite everyone to join; we will help each other and rise together.
