Answer: No. Problems in studying Kabbalah arise only in a group when friends begin to feel rejection and hostility. This results from advancement so that each time one will rise above these obstacles, nothing more.
Question: Where does the feeling that something is about to happen come from? Perhaps sensitivity increases?
Answer: Sensitivity also increases. How else can we overcome all sorts of obstacles in order to rise above them even higher and define the spiritual more if we do not feel them? Obstacles existed before, they just manifest themselves more now because we deserve it and we can rise above them.
