My Comment: I think that even there a person gets attached to his psychologist. But in Kabbalah, a student’s connection with his teacher is simply essential. It is necessary for a student to listen to the teacher and try to implement his advice, even if it does not seem quite real.
A teacher in Kabbalah is sort of a problem for a student: he or she has to accept the teacher and follow him contrary to common sense.
In psychology, it is clearer. Both, the psychologist and the patient are on the same egoistic level, while in Kabbalah, they are on two levels: the teacher is on the spiritual level and the student is on the material. Therefore, a problem arises.
Question: Is it true that all the advice given by a teacher-instructor in Kabbalah is incomprehensible to a student?
Answer: Its inner meaning, of course, is not clear because a student is not yet at the same level as a teacher. Psychology, in principle, is possible to study by yourself and understand what comes from where, what great psychologists say about it, etc.
That is, psychology is within the framework of rational thoughts and desires, and Kabbalah, which is outside these boundaries, is in what is called faith above reason.
