Question: How can we verify that reading The Book of Zohar restores my spiritual connection with the force of the upper governance?
Answer: You can feel it based on the changes in your qualities and attitudes toward others. During all this, you go through a multitude of confused states. You experience a change in various conceptual notions, attitude toward scrutiny, toward revelation, toward understanding, analysis, and synthesis.
I remember going through it myself and I see it in my students: how people become unfocused, they do not have clear perception, understanding, internalization, and hearing. These states signify changes that occur in a person. Kabbalists are aware of these changes and welcome them.
However, a person gradually starts to control such states, he rejoices in them because they signify changes in his level of awareness.
