Question: How can I check whether I am making progress in studying Kabbalah? How is progress measured?
Answer: A sign of progress in the study is a change in your attitude to life. The more I understand that life is much longer than the time between my birth and my death, the more ready I am to exit these limitations; the more deeply I get to know my life and discover the hidden forces that impact this world, the more I have progressed.
