The Concept Of Faith In Kabbalah

laitman_608.02Question: When we talk about faith above reason in Kabbalah does it mean the same as the word “faith”does as is generally accepted in our world?

Answer: No, faith in the wisdom of Kabbalah has nothing to do with the earthly understanding of this word. The category of faith is not in philosophy, psychology, or everyday life.

Faith is the property of bestowal, which is formed in us under the influence of the upper force. When I say that I believe in something, it means that I simply have a certain connection with some phenomenon. But this is in no way connected with the faith that Kabbalah implies.

In Kabbalah, the concept of faith is a special property that arises in a person under the influence of the upper force, upper light. Only then can one make absolutely altruistic actions that are completely unrelated to himself. It is as if he has an additional body—a spiritual one, and with its help it works.
From the Kabbalah Lesson in Russian, 12/23/18
