How Can We Check The Teacher?

laitman_533_02Question: How can we check whether the one who teaches Kabbalah actually knows what he is talking about and that he is indeed a spiritual guide?

Answer: A true teacher of the wisdom of Kabbalah teaches only according to the Kabbalistic sources of Baal HaSulam and Rabash and he only shows how to implement their recommendations in a group. He will not try to stand out and will not require any special treatment.

It says that a person learns only where his heart desires. It isn’t about intuition, but a feeling in the heart. Intuition is in internal call that we don’t understand, whereas a feeling in the heart is when you clearly feel that the teacher speaks directly into your heart. He doesn’t try to convince you, attract you, or lure you; you feel that he addresses you without trying to influence you.

It is not prohibited to check out teachers in other places. You only need to be very careful not to fall into mysticism or other spiritual practical spiritual studies.

We can say that there are two ways to check things, or two external signs of a true Kabbalah teacher. The first is that the teacher teaches according to Kabbalistic sources and the second is that he himself received his knowledge from a recognized Kabbalist.
