Question: We feel or try to feel what the Creator can do, we observe and analyze it. But what can the created being do? What does a Kabbalist feel when he can actually do something if he can do something at all?
Answer: The wisdom of Kabbalah is the method of attaining the properties of the Creator by a person while still living in this world. One can be like the Creator to the extent that one attains the upper properties. This is what he can do. But it is his business whether he can do so. It depends on how much he devotes himself to it.
Question: What is the concept: “inner woman” in Kabbalah, and how can I use it?
Answer: It is your inner egoistic desire, which has been partially corrected. The altruistic part of this desire is called your “inner woman.”
Question: There is a statement in one of your articles: “Our egoistic desire is greater than our ego, greater than pride. After all, if it were the other way around, we would break and shatter to death, but we would not bow.” How is a desire different from the ego? Why is it greater and how does this save us from total shattering?
Answer: The desire to enjoy for my own sake is called the ego. This is our whole nature. Absolutely. There is nothing else in us. Only the desire to enjoy everything we can imagine as a source of pleasure.
Question: I am greatly confused about the mutual connection between the person and the Creator. It seems like some medieval religion.
Answer: It is not religion. The Creator is the general force of nature in which we exist, and it includes all physical, chemical, and all the other laws.
