Question: From the point of view of Kabbalah regarding spiritual work, the whole society can be divided into three parts:
“Egyptians”—people for whom spirituality is not important at all and they are busy fulfilling their material needs.
The “mixed multitude”—people that on one hand fear God, and on the other hand want to use the connection with the Creator for their own sake, which is identical to working for the Pharaoh.
The question is: How is it possible to use the Creator or connection with Him for oneself?
Answer: If you look around, the whole world more or less believes that there is a higher power, the Creator. Look how many temples have been built on Earth and all kinds of denominations have been created! And all of it is an expression of man’s desire for connection with the Creator. In fact, there is practically no real atheist in the world who completely cut themselves off from the Creator.
Comment: They say that only two percent of people in the world are atheists.
My Response: If you really dig into this issue, then this is not the case because the point of connection with the upper force was initially established within us. Any person can be driven to a state where he demands faith in the Creator because without this he will have no reason to live and somehow hold onto this world.
Therefore, all people are clearly divided into two classes. One kind are those who live a normal life and use their connection with the Creator in order to add confidence and all kinds of sensations to themselves. These are ordinary believers of all colors and denominations, no matter what kind.
They can be very different, opposite, even opponents, but they still believe in an upper force, they call it differently and clothe their connection with it in different stories. All of this refers to the cultural framework of humanity’s connection with the Creator.
And there are people who want to reveal this connection for real. So they demand it, they want it to appear, they want to reveal the Creator Himself so that He manifests in them just like a person we know would appear before us.
Just as in the surrounding world we see the still, vegetative, animate, and human nature, they want no less obvious manifestation of the fifth type of reality—the higher power, the Creator. In what form and what conditions are there for it to manifest itself, this must be clarified. But in principle, such a desire exists in a person.
Therefore, the wisdom of Kabbalah says that if such an aspiration exists in a person, then it can be fulfilled, one just needs to know how it is done. And then you will feel how in our world, in addition to the inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human species, there is also a higher level—a force that controls all of them and determines absolutely everything: past, present, and future. This mighty, great, omnipresent force can manifest and reveal itself to any person.
The science of Kabbalah is the system of knowledge that prepares us for the revelation of the Creator, and we can gradually understand Him. This is the subject of its study and implementation.
