Baal HaSulam, “The Essence of the Wisdom of Kabbalah”: “This wisdom is no more and no less than a sequence of roots, which hang down by way of cause and consequence, by fixed, determined rules, interweaving to a single, exalted goal described as ‘the revelation of His Godliness to His creatures in this world.’”
The wisdom of Kabbalah is intended for the created beings in this world in order to guide them to the attainment of the Creator according to absolute, fixed laws, which gradually lead people to His attainment, feeling, perception, and eventually to adhesion with Him, which means to the complete revelation of the Creator.
And who is the Creator? He is the highest, general, integral force of nature, which includes all of creation.
This is the reason why understanding this state enables us to understand what is actually going on and to respond correctly to what the Creator, nature, is doing with us and what we can do with it.
By implementing the wisdom of Kabbalah, we can see our participation in creation, in nature. After all, Kabbalah is the science of nature, of everything that was created, including the root, that is, the Creator.
This means that studying this science, especially in our times, is indeed essential. This is what our evolution pushes us toward, and it happens through a constant increase of suffering and lack of understanding in order to force us to know the Creator, to reveal Him, to understand how crucial it is for us to be in contact with Him.
