What Makes A Person A Kabbalist?

laitman_961.2Question: What makes a person a Kabbalist if studying and acquiring knowledge are not enough? What else is needed?

Answer: The acquisition of knowledge does not make a person a Kabbalist. A Kabbalist is one who begins to feel the spiritual world, that is, the connection between us and the Creator in it.

In other words, I myself must rise to the level where I feel, let’s say, the ten, and in the ten, I must rise to the level where I begin to feel its source—the Creator. This is the attainment of the upper world: me—the ten—the Creator.

Question: For example, in workshops in the ten we read short passages and clarify Kabbalistic concepts or the internal efforts that we must make. Where is the element of advancement here? What is the work we each do in order to feel the maximum impact of the upper light on ourselves after reading the passage?

Answer: I can feel the impact of the upper world on myself to the extent that I aspire to it, that is, to the property of the common connection in a single whole.

My friends and I form a communication network, and in this network, we try to find the property of bestowal and love connecting us. Thus, we gradually prepare this network for the state where it will be able to perceive the Creator—the source of this connection. This is how it works.
