Question: When I feel bad I feel emptiness. What is the best thing to do in this situation according to the wisdom of Kabbalah? Should I change myself, change my thoughts, start reading something, listen to something, or think that it is from the Creator?
Answer: When I feel bad, first of all, I begin to read the article “There is None Else Besides Him” from the book Shamati. Then I read from the Book of Psalms or listen to my favorite lessons. Overall, there are many articles and excerpts that can help us in difficult moments.
But the best thing to do, if you can, is to immediately delve into the group, to connect to it, or to find some interesting lesson to listen to. In the past, when there were no computers, I used to write down parts of the lesson that I found interesting, but today you can just collect them on your computer or on your mobile phone. Press a button and read a quote or listen to part of the lesson and the bad mood you are in will immediately disappear without a trace.
Question: Does this mean that you have built a safety zone in advance?
Answer: Of course. If I know in advance that I will feel bad, I must make sure that I will be secure, just as we purchase insurance in our world, like health insurance, etc. I must do that, and then I seemingly make all the unpleasant events pass very quickly.
