Question from Facebook: Everything you teach is pure psychology of the relationships between people. What do the Creator, Light, and all other attributes have to do with it?
Answer: The fact is that the Creator is attained between people when a special relationship of bestowal and love appears between them. Not earthly bestowal, earthly love, but on a higher level, that is, above our egoism.
In order to rise to the next level, above our egoism, the wisdom of Kabbalah is needed, which, in principle, deals only with this. That is, it is psychology, but on the next, higher level.
In our earthly psychology, a person does not need to change himself in practice. Here he must receive the upper force, and Kabbalah explains to him how to do it. Receiving this force, he builds above himself another entirely different person who works in bestowal and love to others, outside himself. That is, on the material level, “I am inside myself,” and on the spiritual level, I act “outside myself.”
Materialistic psychology cannot deal with this; it does not have tools for this, no power of Light that can inversely change a person. Therefore, psychology is psychology, and Kabbalah is Kabbalah.
Question: Is it possible to say that materialistic psychology adapts us to the earthly reality, and Kabbalistic psychology, to the upper reality?
Answer: Of course, I adapt myself to a different system of relations built on complete disconnection from my egoism and above it.
