Question: I know some people who through spiritual practices and rejection of desires live for the sake of the divine and easily enter the spiritual realm. However, none of them are engaged in Kabbalah. Why do you insist that revealing the Creator is only possible with the help of Kabbalah?
Answer: I do not insist on anything and do not argue with anyone. I have my own understanding. If someone wants to master it, they can learn from the materials that we put on the Internet. Also, I do not want to debate what method is better to study or how to go about it.
Why should I dissuade someone about whether or not he is right? To the extent that a person strives for the truth, he finds his own method, aspires further, and advances. What’s most important is not to stop. Therefore, whatever you do, I advise you only one thing: continue to go deeper, expand, and do not be afraid of anything.
The Torah/Kabbalah does not welcome the rejection of egoism because it is our matter. The more we use it, the more we have the opportunity to ascend.
Unlike religions or most spiritual practices, Kabbalah uses egoism joyfully, as a gift from the Creator. After all, it is egoism that separates the human being and the whole creation from the Creator. And if we want to destroy the ego or annul the desire itself, what would remain of us?
