According To The Advice Of A Kabbalist

laitman_938.04Question: Is it impossible to explain the method of Kabbalah to a person who doesn’t have a point in the heart? He only understands corporeal logic, group psychology, but not higher psychology.

Answer: Kabbalah does not deal with explanations because it initially works at a level where there are neither human thoughts nor desires. It makes no sense to explain anything. It is the same as sitting in front of a dog interpreting philosophical canons to it as it wags its tail responding to your affection, and what you say doesn’t matter.

So it is with a Kabbalist. When he tries to convey anything to people, they nod with an approving smile, as if saying: “Keep babbling,” but they don’t delve into anything.

Time passes, and if they keep studying according to the advice of the Kabbalist, then gradually they begin to understand where this is going. They feel various changes in themselves; they begin to feel, according to the terms spoken, some adequate response to higher actions that they had not previously felt. They enter a field where there are completely new definitions, and thus continue moving forward.

But this is not because they absorb everything with their minds, but because they act according to the directive of their teacher.
