Question: What part of the system determines how many times I need to die and be born? Can I influence this by studying Kabbalah?
Answer: Yes, you can. There is an article of Rabash called “What Is the Degree One Should Achieve in Order Not to Have to Reincarnate?” It depends on a person. Let’s agree that we do not want to return to this world anymore. We will complete everything that we need to complete in this reincarnation, in this lifetime, and say goodbye to this world.
Indeed, this world is the worst, the lowest of the worlds, a state in which any spiritual state is much higher, more honest, and better in comparison.
Question: What does it mean “to finish with this world”?
Answer: It means to become similar in our qualities to the next degree.
