Answer: All the principles that we have from the wishes and advice of Kabbalists are intended only to help us focus ourselves correctly on the feeling of the upper world. Therefore, if we follow their advice, we will begin to perceive and to attain the upper world, which is the main thing and everything else is up to you.
Many Kabbalah students are stubborn and don’t want to change anything internally. They don’t want to change their paradigm of the perception of the world. Therefore, keep running into a wall when studying this wisdom and cannot do anything.
Question: I understand what will happen in our world if I ignore the law of gravity, but what will happen if I don’t keep or follow a law or a principle that is in The Book of Zohar?
Answer: If you don’t keep a law of the upper world, you will not feel it.
Question: Is this the worst thing that can happen?
Answer: It can be much worse because our entire development in this world is aimed at pushing us to further development: to the perception of the upper world. If we don’t do this, we will develop by terribly painful afflictions.
