Question: In my social life I have a lot of loving, open friends, who know how to give. But they don’t even want to hear about Kabbalah, just like me before. Will they be able to develop, attain the upper world, and cross the Machsom without Kabbalah?
Answer: If a person does not have any desire for this yet, then of course he cannot do anything. And why does he need it? A person moves forward based on what he lacks, what he wants. Look at yourself. You see a live example in front of you, yourself.
As a person develops, he sees that he is in a world in which everything is going in the wrong direction. By exploring it, he begins to understand that human egoism—our nature—is to blame for everything, and we must do something with it.
If he does start reading Kabbalistic sources at least a little, he will learn that all our problems stem from egoism and are inherent in nature in order to lift us above our nature to a higher, next level.
