Do Not Add One Mistake Over Another

Dr Michael LaitmanQuestion: Religion is a framework of relationships between people who share the same faith. Is the wisdom of Kabbalah a religion?

Answer: The wisdom of Kabbalah has nothing to do with religion. The fact that in our ordinary life we begin to establish certain rituals and laws that do not exist in nature, but want them to exist, is what we often call religion. Or it may also be some kind of cultural norm of society.

This isn’t the case with the wisdom of Kabbalah. It is based on the fact that you reveal these laws in nature, comprehend them for yourself in absolute knowledge, and then you have no problem with it.

Of course the wisdom of Kabbalah is not a religion nor is it a science because it does not reveal anything in our senses or in our mind, but instead, it is actually revealed in the attributes that you develop internally when you ascend above your ego, above the matter of our world. Then you begin to feel totally different attributes, different laws, and this is how you advance.

You need to delve into this issue in order to attain the truth and in order to understand what you engage in.

Otherwise, you relate to what you hear today from the perspective of what you heard yesterday. What is the result? Yesterday your head was filled with certain dogmas, which you accepted as true, and today you condemn and criticize what you received yesterday and define everything anew.

This means that you have accepted something as a condition, and now you negate everything else, and thus you will continue to increase your mistakes, and will not reveal anything new in life. In ten years you will still be in the same state you are in today.
