Question: Can a person be born with a screen?
Answer: No, never, not at all. We are all born as little egoists and remain so throughout our lives. If a person is engaged in Kabbalah and begins to understand that it can provide him with an altruistic, anti-egoistic quality, and continues to work on it in order to acquire this quality, then gradually a screen is formed in him. This is a cumulative process.
The screen is a purely individual quality. It cannot be adopted from someone, bought, exchanged, or borrowed.
