Question: What do a husband and wife need to take into account if they begin to study Kabbalah together? How should they help each other and what should they avoid?
Answer: I don’t think that when they study Kabbalah they will immediately want to help each other. Each of them will experience their own states.
It takes a very long time, months, and even years before they begin to understand the possibility of studying together, of putting their spiritual forces into it together. It will take years before they feel that they both have one soul. It is no simple matter.
It will not happen in a day. We are just beginning this path so it is best not to disturb one another. In the beginning each one develops on their own.
Children, for example, cannot play with each other before the age of three. They play on their own, each with their own toys, and if you offer a child to play with someone else, he will not understand it. They don’t have the perception of society yet.
It is the same when we study Kabbalah. When we begin to study Kabbalah, we do not feel others. It overtakes us and seizes each one separately. So we should not disturb each other during this time, but instead try to allow each one to develop independently until we reach a certain level of maturity.
