Answer: Each year attainment becomes easier. People who come to Kabbalah today are more prepared to comprehend it.
Their egoism is more productive and prepared for the rapid adaptation of spiritual states. Due to this, their path is much shorter; hence, many students who have been with me for ten years are at the level I reached in twenty years.
Question: Have the means of attainment remained the same or did something change in the methodology?
Answer: It is hard to say because the spiritual attainment of my students is different. For example, after two years of studying, under the influence of the materials of Baal HaSulam, I wrote books and none of them did so. Nevertheless, today they are at the level of twenty years of my studies of Kabbalah, although they have only been studying for ten years. It is impossible to explain. Such things can’t be measured in the years of our world.
Question: Does the current quality of attainment differ from the past quality?
Answer: Of course, today it is more concrete.
All those who come to Kabbalah today live in a completely different world, at a completely different time, and the previous generations can already envy them.
