Comment: People write to you: “Michael Laitman, you make Kabbalah primitive when you want to reveal it to everyone. Kabbalah is for the elite, it is the inner part of the Torah. And you bring it out into the world. Don’t do it!”
My Response: I would agree with you, but the Kabbalistic books tell us something else: that the time will come—this was said thousands of years ago—when Kabbalah will be opened to everyone.
It is said in the Torah: “I will bring them to My holy mount, and I will cause them to rejoice in My house of prayer, their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be acceptable upon My altar, for My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples. So you are not entirely correct.
Question: So these are precisely Kabbalistic sayings?
Answer: Of course. The statements of King David or the ancient Kabbalists or The Book of Zohar.
Question: But this was said by Kabbalists. And to you, King David was also a Kabbalist?
Answer: Of course a Kabbalist! Comprehending the Creator, writing such things that reveal the upper world to us!
Comment: But this letter is clearly written by a person for whom there was a ban for studying Kabbalah.
My Response: That is his business.
Question: In principle, are you sure that time has come for the absolute, full disclosure of this science?
Answer: Kabbalists said that too.
Question: And the fact that you teach absolutely everyone?
Answer: It is also said about this: “Know the Lord,” for they shall all know Me from their smallest to their greatest”
Question: Do you think that that time is now?
Answer: And they said that too. I don’t say anything on my own, they all say this.
Question: Are you sure that now is the time of the last generation? Or maybe it is a mistake?
Answer: If they said so, I abide by it.
Question: And they say that this time is right now?
Answer: Yes. I was a disciple of the last great Kabbalist Rabash, and what I received from him, I carry on.
Question: Rabash had this confidence that “doors would open”?
Comment: Still, Rabash had a small group.
My Response: He could not afford more. And I don’t feel limited by anything. Times are different now.
Comment: Yes. But you have provoked a lot of criticism upon yourself.
My Response: It doesn’t matter. It will still all work.
Question: Why exactly is today the time for disclosure?
Answer: Because the world is becoming global, integral, interconnected. And it needs the right attitude of people to people. And this is exactly what Kabbalah is talking about: how to do it, how to come to goodness and mutual love.
Question: Is this a secret inner science?
Answer: There is nothing secret. What we have not revealed is called a mystery. Therefore, science is called a mystery because it creates reality out of any mysteries.
Question: And when it says that this is the inner part of the Torah, what does it mean?
Answer: That there is that Torah which is impossible to read with just eyes, you also need to open your heart.
Question: So the time for the opening of the heart is coming now?
Answer: Yes. Opening your eyes is not enough. We are approaching such a state that the world needs the opening of hearts.
