Answer: In essence, it is one force that is divided into many forces that are opposite to each other. We need to awaken its revelation through the study that is conducted in a group of ten people who are building increasingly friendly relationships between themselves. For this purpose, the preparation before the lesson is conducted.
Through our connection and penetration into the study material, we intend not just to learn what is written in the book, but to receive from it a special inspiration, a special force that will connect us even more strongly. As a result, we begin to reveal the network of forces acting on us and we understand that it does not exist somewhere outside, but between us.
The general force of connection called the Creator is manifested within our connection with each other, as it is written: “You shall see your world in your lifetime.” Therefore, the wisdom of Kabbalah is the method of revealing the Creator to the creatures in this world.
All this we achieve through connection in the ten, which is a means of achieving the purpose of creation. The first stage is to reach the love of the creatures, and this is exactly what is being realized in the ten. Then, from the love of the creatures we come to the love of the Creator, the general force governing the system of nature.
Question: So, what is the central subject of the study?
Answer: In the Kabbalah lessons, we study the very same network that connects us with each other that is called the system of the upper worlds. ”Olam – world” comes from the word “Alama – concealment”, that is, a concealed system.
Gradually, we begin to reveal it. Inside these worlds, this network of forces, we discover the connection that exists between us in the ten. This connection is called our soul, or Shechina, in which the Creator (Shochen) is revealed.
Question: Is the purpose of studying Kabbalah to feel the concealed reality or to understand it?
Answer: The purpose of studying is to feel the upper reality. Once we begin to feel it, we must understand it based on the sensation.
Question: What exactly do we want to feel?
Answer: We want to feel a special mutual connection between us that is constantly growing in quality until it reaches the degree of love. Inside this connection we begin to reveal a special force acting in it, which is called the Creator.
