Question: You once said that the Creator gives wealth in order to distance Himself. But poverty also alienates people from spirituality because all strength and thoughts go to feeding themselves and their families. Do wealth and poverty interfere with Kabbalah?
Answer: No. Everything depends on how a person, despite wealth or poverty, relates himself to the highest governance, realizing that the Creator gives him exactly what is necessary for his soul. Even if I do not understand why He gives me conditions such as wealth or poverty, which in principle hinder me in my smooth movement toward the goal, I justify it because I received it from the Creator. Moreover, probably, from the point of view of the root of my soul, it is justified, natural, and absolutely balanced.
Question: So, such an understanding helps me steer away from constant thoughts of where to get money?
Answer: No, I also regard this as a spiritual work.
