What Drives A Kabbalist Forward?

962.7Question: How does the wisdom of Kabbalah determine the degree of sufferings and pleasures that were set for a person who is on the spiritual path?

Answer: The degree of suffering depends on a person’s recognition of the greatness of the goal. If I want to attain a certain goal and am at a certain distance from it, to the extent that the goal is great in my eyes, the discrepancy between me and the goal is felt as suffering.

But it is actually the magnitude of the suffering that drives me forward. I already see the goal and I understand that I have a method of how to attain it. So, I am happy with what is happening, and for me, it is no longer a path of suffering but a path of light. I feel these suffering illuminate the path for me.
