Question: Kabbalah says that a person can reveal the Creator in this world. Religions claim that one must believe in the Creator, and then you will find Him in the next world. Nevertheless, no one rushes to reveal the Creator, no one is even interested in that it can be done now, in our world. Why is it this way?
People do not aspire to the science of Kabbalah because they are created in properties opposite to the upper world. That’s that.
Man is not attracted by it, he does not have a direct desire for this, and he does not feel the need inside himself. When I am offered a delicious cake, walk, dance, to watch a good movie or a football match, it is all clear. We have these informational records.
Question: It is not a natural desire to understand the upper force?
Answer: No. Why do I need it? It is better to stay away from it.
Question: On the other hand, isn’t there immense motivation? Any person over twenty years old knows that his life will certainly end. It’s scary. But something covers this fear and doesn’t allow him to reveal the Creator, and eternal life?
Answer: The fact is that despite fears, interests, and everything else, people still do not run to study Kabbalah because egoism stands in their way. It doesn’t fit into our pyramid of desires, which include food, sex, family, wealth, fame, power, and knowledge.
Question: Why didn’t the Creator install such a program in us so that at some stage of our development we would want to attain Him?
Answer: Even when you start moving toward His attainment, you see it as a question about the meaning of life: Why do I live? What do I exist for? What is my life? What do I need the Creator for? Me, I am! This is how it reveals in us.
