Question: Kabbalah is a method of how to properly communicate between people. Humanity has been developing for thousands of years. Why doesn’t humanity know anything about this method at the beginning of the 21st century?
Answer: This has nothing to do with a person’s intelligence, but depends on whether the need to discover the reason for his existence, the question of what he is living for, has emerged in him. If he has a need for that, he arrives at the wisdom of Kabbalah.
Question: But why doesn’t a person know that? We have discovered so many things in our world, we have invented so many technological innovations, but we do not have any basic knowledge about the wisdom of Kabbalah.
Answer: A person does not need to know what he is not supposed to know yet. Therefore, Kabbalah was not revealed to the people until the 20th century, except to individual Kabbalists.
Even today, many people have no need to know about it yet. Only those who want to will be able to reach the wisdom of Kabbalah. The next intermediate phase will be when everyone aspires for Kabbalistic knowledge.
