Question: How does it happen that for people who attain the first level in spirituality, the moment they leave the hall where they are studying the wisdom of Kabbalah and find themselves on the street, the memory of the level that they achieved does not remain?
Answer: It is all well and good that nothing remains. You must recreate the same step next time. But it will already be called the second level then. That is how it is renewed every time.
