Do Not Let Intelligence Surpass Action

laitman_219.03Question: It is written: “His wisdom is greater than his strength.” What does it mean?

Answer: According to Kabbalah, it is very bad when intelligence, wisdom, surpasses action. Because first of all, I need to lower my head and receive higher knowledge. And when I adapt this knowledge to myself, I must then work with it within the group.

During the process of working with it, it becomes clear to me what all these actions are for, and only then do I begin to use them as my own thoughts, my own methods.

Question: “We shall do and we shall hear” also applies here?

Answer: Yes. First the action must be carried out because only this attracts the upper Light, and within this Light, we will begin to understand everything.
From the Kabbalah Lesson in Russian, 12/3/17
