Question: If the purpose of studying the wisdom of Kabbalah is the revelation of the Creator, then with the help of which tools are we going to reveal Him? We can see microbes through a microscope and stars through a telescope, but through what can we reveal the upper force?
Answer: The upper force is revealed within my relationship with the friends I study with in the same group. To the extent that I treat others with love, care, and compassion, give them the most important place in my life, and develop within myself the force of bestowal in relation to them, I reveal a network of connections between us.
This network exists from the very beginning. We do not create it, but only build the tools for its revelation.
Our connection already exists and has always existed; we are just revealing it in order to feel the flow of the forces of bestowal and love within it that create the feeling of the Creator in us.
Question: Where is the upper force revealed: in the feeling or in the mind?
Answer: The upper force is first revealed in the feeling and then in the mind.
Studying is conducted on the basis of the Kabbalistic sources and includes two parts.
One part is dedicated to the study of the structure of the universe, the spreading of the worlds, Partzufim, Sefirot, and souls, and how everything was created before a person discovers himself here in this world existing in a biological body and feels the desire to reveal his roots, his source.
When a person makes this discovery, he begins to study it rising from the bottom upward: from himself existing today, through the friends in the ten, to the attainment of the entire ladder of spiritual degrees, that is, of all the forces descended to him, gradually recognizing them more and more.
Both parts of learning: the study of the structure of the universe and its creation from above downward, as well as the ascent back upward from the reality we find ourselves in today have only one purpose: to reveal the upper force of bestowal called the Creator.
