Question: Can a person be in a Klipa (shell) for a long time and mistakenly think that he is advancing, that he is corrected and that only his way is the right way? How can I help myself or a friend in such a situation?
Answer: If you are members of a group that studies only from Kabbalistic sources like The Book of Zohar, the writings of the Ari, Baal HaSulam, and Rabash, and perhaps even my books since they are based on the writings of Baal HaSulam and Rabash, you really do study the wisdom of Kabbalah.
By studying these sources together with a group, you advance correctly and consistently and you will surely reach the goal.
