On The Threshold Of Attainment

laitman_214Question: There are four degrees of understanding the Torah in the abbreviation PARDES. How can we understand Kabbalah without understanding them?

Answer: The fact is that we are not studying actual Kabbalah yet, which represents these four levels of understanding the Torah, the world, and nature.

We are just starting to develop our tools for understanding, knowing who we are, how we perceive reality, how we can influence ourselves, etc. We are yet to reveal all the levels of attainment: the still, vegetative, animate, and human levels.

In the meantime, we are outside of them because we talk about attaining the internal structure of nature: its structure and the mechanism that manages everything.

But in principle, we are climbing the steps described in the Torah from its secret to its simple understanding.
