When You Don’t Understand What You Read …

laitman_209Question from Facebook: How can you attract the upper light if you don’t understand what you’ve read? Who needs The Book of Zohar, which, in your words, is not given for understanding?

Answer: Kabbalistic books have been given so that reading and not even understanding anything in them, we would strive for good—eternity, love, bestowal, the upper light—and ask Him to make us like that.

It’s actually good that you don’t understand anything. Your brain is then unoccupied with what is written in the book, but with asking to make yourself good, eternal, upper, bestowing to and loving of everyone. When you will become like that, you will begin to understand everything else.
