For example, psychology explores only feelings, emotions, all kinds of reactions of a person, and desires.
My Comment: In addition, psychology also explores intention, but it is not a science because in our world there are no clear possibilities to measure and compare a person’s psychological parameters.
Kabbalah, however, as a science about intentions, gives us a tool for a completely different approach. Usually, we evaluate a person according to his or her actions and their results, whereas Kabbalah evaluates a person according to his or her intentions. That is the difference. After all, in our world I can perform bad actions with good intentions and vice versa. Bad intentions can sometimes cause good actions.
In general, revealing a person’s intentions is of primal importance. After all, our intentions are what we are, and our actions and desires depend not on us, but arise in us gradually in the course of our physical development.
