The wisdom of Kabbalah says that we understand in sensations, the heart understands. If we begin to feel and empathize with what is written in the The Study of the Ten Sefirot, then our desire will begin to correct itself toward bestowal, which the book tells us about. The ten Sefirot of direct light will dress into the ten Sefirot of reflected light. The ten Sefirot of direct light is the attitude of the Creator toward me and the ten Sefirot of reflected light is my attitude toward the Creator. These relationships are built on equal footing: The Creator always treats us in the same measure that we can respond to Him.
What is lacking is a little more of the greatness of the Creator, which must be obtained from the environment in order to progress. This is how we need to continue all the time: to receive more and more of the greatness of the Creator from the environment, from the ten, in order to connect more and more with the Creator. Again and again, even more greatness of the Creator from the same environment, even stronger connection with the Creator in the ten. We begin to feel that it spins like a typhoon, and all the desires of the world are brought into the ten, where I, the Creator, and the ten are together.1
The uniqueness of the modern generation is that it does not know: “How to reach pleasure, where it actually is, and why it does not exist in our world?” The further we progress, the more the desire to enjoy grows, but there is no fulfillment. This development is intended to bring us to the next level of fulfillment: not with food, sex, money, honor and knowledge, but to the spiritual values that give us a sense of an eternal world, infinite and unlimited fulfillment.
The modern generation is moving toward this goal, and therefore it cannot find fulfillment in the material world and turns to drugs and despair. No matter how much they try to fulfill themselves with all sorts of false values, emptiness is revealed as a result, because it is impossible to fool yourself forever. It turns out that a person either becomes a real drug addict or turns his whole life into a drug, not letting himself think about what is most important, that is, why am I living? One just mindlessly goes through the motions, like everyone else, following the lead of advertising, fake news, not giving oneself time to think.
A person does not know where to buy such a pill that could fulfill this new surfacing desire. After all, we are in the last generation that should already reveal the Creator.2
