The Uniqueness Of The Method Of Kabbalah

laitman_528.02Question: Are members of a Kabbalistic group comprised of people who have a lot of abilities?

Answer: A Kabbalistic group is complicated in the sense that those who enter it have a big ego directed toward attaining the Creator. Their egoism crosses the boundaries of our world, which indicates how big their ego is.

They have to work on their ego without killing, lowering, or erasing it, but instead construct the opposite property through a unique ascent above the ego. The ego grows all the time, but a person builds the property of bestowal and love above it: the ego grows, one builds the property of love; the ego grows more, and more of the property of love is added. This is how a person constantly pulls himself up.

Therefore, the Kabbalistic method is complex. First, it works within a person who exists in two states: one state is egoistic and the other one pulls him to the altruistic part. The person is torn between these two states not knowing exactly which one he should attach to. Big descents, big ascents, and a huge tension between them.

The method explains to him what he should do, while he constantly works on discerning his freedom of choice. This is not easy.

Question: Where in this work can one give a good spirit to the other person?

Answer: In all the states, but only through the correct environment.

The Power Of Mutual Guarantee

laitman_943Rabash, “The Love of Friends – 1”: This trail is called “a path of bestowal,” and this way is against our nature. To be able to achieve it, there is no other way but [in a group where there is] love of friends, by which everyone can help his friend [to move forward along this path].

Nobody in the group can advance by himself and cannot advance with the help of others. Spiritual advancement means that a person helps the group and thus develops the quality of bestowal and love in oneself.

The group helps a person with alternative actions so that a person can give, influence, fulfill, care for, and support one’s friends. At the same time, a person develops spiritual qualities.

Question: What is the role of mutual guarantee in this process?

Answer: Mutual support because a person does not have strength of his own.

Mutual guarantee works even in people who do not realize this and do not use it consciously. Friends working in a group and taking part in classes and in all events are already using this force anyway. Even if not explicitly, not clearly directed, but mutual guarantee already works for them.

Secrets Of The Torah

525Question: I often listen to the Secrets of the Eternal Book TV program where you explain what each commandment means, and I try to understand how Kabbalists pass on this information.

Why didn’t they put an explanation of every concept in parentheses? For example, Egypt (Mitzraim) is a concentration of evil, Pharaoh is the ego, and so on.

Answer: There is a purpose for this—it gives a person freedom. As one develops, he can smoothly interpret all spiritual work either within our world or within the spiritual world in accordance with his growth.

I also asked myself these questions, and tried to put it all out in my first books, at least in a very simple way. But there is no language in the world that can simply describe spiritual actions and everything that is written in the Torah.
