Answer: The difference is that in the wisdom of Kabbalah, I don’t think about what is good for me. I must go out of and transcend myself in order to begin to build elements of attainment, the states of the spiritual world, within me.
So, I cannot talk about it being good for me according to my beastly feelings. I must exist in them only as a beast. I must build a completely new sense of a reality beyond my beastly state, beyond my egoism, outside of me, outside of myself, inside of others.
When I am able to do this, rising above myself, integrating with others, and acting with faith above reason, I will begin to feel the upper world, which is actually found outside of me, specifically in my relationships with others if I build them through transcending myself.
