I place a barrier between myself and the Light and I begin to control it. I want the Light to transform me, to first make me not receiving, and then giving.
Question: So, in Kabbalah, a person does not need actions, but only attempts to do something?
Answer: A person does not need to do anything. The whole spiritual world is in our thoughts and desires.
Question: So what is the technique? How do I move from the egocentric state, where I perceive everything within myself, to feel something outside of myself?
Answer: This requires upper Light. We must attract it so that it will act on us more and more intensely. This is achieved through group study. After all, we do not engage in this science in order to become smarter.
After a couple of hundred of such actions, a person will begin to understand what we are talking about, to feel what is happening in him, outside of him. Gradually, new organs of sensation of the upper Light will appear in him.
Question: So this means the method is that a person attracts some kind of energy, Light, force. How does he understand that this energy is affecting him?
Answer: He feels that he changes. The meaning of life for him becomes more pronounced, clearer, and more intimate. He begins to understand how to implement this technique, to achieve the feeling of the upper world here and now.
