Question: Can the a person’s life be lengthened if he studies the wisdom of Kabbalah and is particularly concerned about not having enough time to attain spiritual perfection in his lifetime?
Answer: That shows an absolute lack of faith!
First and foremost, one needs to free himself from concerns, because if he is under the control of the Creator, and besides Him there is no force, nobody besides Him, and He is good and benevolent, there is no reason for questions of this kind about what will happen to him in another minute and will he achieve something or not.
The condition, “There is none else beside Him” (Deuteronomy 4:35), the absolute good, completely prevents a person from having all kinds of egoistic questions. He is left with only one single question: How can a person become His associate, helper, guarantor to carry out His will in the world? Because I can implement them because I am in this world. We need to ask for only one thing: for the Creator to dictate His desires to us and that we will bring them to all of humanity. This is the function of a Kabbalist or, if you will, a prophet.
Question: Which is to say, a Kabbalist cannot ask for good health for his relatives and for himself?
Answer: If this is imperative, he can ask, but what is the use if the Creator is responsible for it?
If the Creator did that so that a person will ask Him, then he will ask. In other words, it is up to the person to search and understand why all of this is happening and to request to be directed toward the Light and correction.
