All the articles in Shamati are very easy to read, are seemingly quite clear, and can be processed analytically. It is not a problem at all for a rational person.
We need to understand not the presentation of the article, but their internal meaning, which means to feel, to see, to hear, to understand, to sense the powers that are described in them. This is what a person needs to yearn for. A person who delves into these articles sees that he is actually very far from what they say. It is because he doesn’t feel the actual material. He doesn’t experience these attributes, and doesn’t see these powers around him since they are not in the dimension we exist on.
Question: So what is the point of reading these articles?
Answer: By reading these articles we begin to realize that there is something above us, and how it can be connected to us. The yearning for reaching the internal meaning of Kabbalistic texts leads and draws us onward to spiritual objects. It awakens spiritual powers in us that gradually change us and create new attributes in us in which we already begin to feel what the article is talking about.
