Question: How do bad thoughts influence life, and why is a person responsible for them if they are sent to him from the Creator?
Answer: A person is not responsible for anything, except one thing: realizing the opportunity that he has been given to become independent and to ascend to spirituality.
Only in this does he have freedom of choice. Everywhere else, he is completely subject to the forces from above that influence him. He carries out their instructions without understanding that he is a puppet on a string.
Question: Do the prayers of the parents influence the destiny of the child? Are children responsible for what their parents have done?
Answer: No one is responsible for anything. A person is not even responsible for what he did yesterday. All the more so, he is not responsible for the deeds of others. This is all irrelevant to a person. He must only turn to the Creator and discern things in relation to Him because he is completely managed by the Creator.
I do not hide these things so people will get a bit of the feeling that the wisdom of Kabbalah speaks sharply, directly, and openly.
