Question: Before you met your teacher, you studied various sources for several years. Can a book prepare a person for the wisdom of Kabbalah?
Answer: It depends on the person. There are those who like novelty and they come to us to experience new feelings. However, these are usually not people who stay and become my students. Kabbalah is more for physicists than for poets even though it speaks of poetry—feelings.
Man is a desire. The desire to enjoy. He must know how to control his desire and use it to discover the world.
Question: Does it mean that a physicist can become a poet during studying?
Answer: Of course. The combination of these two inclinations is mandatory. In principle, feelings are the most important. But the way to control them correctly, according to the laws of the world and nature, this is Kabbalah.
