Without the wisdom of Kabbalah, it is impossible to answer the question about the meaning of life. After all, we exist in the desire to enjoy, which is our entire nature, and so we always serve only it.
Our ego immediately answers the question “What am I living for?” with “To feel good in your desire to enjoy!,” i.e., inside your nature, not above it.
It turns out that my whole life is to guarantee my egoism’s fulfillment. That is, I serve my animalistic body. I do not exist above the animalistic level, but within it.
Only under the condition that I give my animalistic body the most necessary things, like to an ox, a donkey, or a horse so that they would serve us people, then I use my body for the needs of a person who is above the animalistic body. This means I scrutinize the question: “What am I living for?” Not the ox or donkey, but the person within me: What is the purpose of his life?
We then find out that life is not in the desire to enjoy, which lives and dies, but above it. It means that we should search for the meaning of life above egoism, where there is only the force that created the desire to enjoy: the Creator.
It turns out that the answer to the question about the meaning of life cannot be found inside oneself, in one’s animalistic body, but only in the examination of the force that created us and led us to this question. I must discover the Creator, and then I will understand what I am living for.
The attainment of the Creator takes place in 125 degrees. In each degree, we discover the Creator more and more, understanding what we are living for. When we complete all our corrections, that is, the entire attainment of the Creator, then we will uncover a complete answer to the question about the meaning of life.
