Kabbalah And Philosophy: The Question Of The Meaning Of Life

219.01Question: Did philosophers of the past ask themselves the question about the meaning of life?

Answer: Yes, but they treated this issue in the same way as many people today, purely speculatively.

They did not understand that one must enter the upper world, feel it, open it up, and exist simultaneously in two worlds, through our world to see the next one, the spiritual one. They did not understand that it is the same as attaining our world, and therefore, they worked purely with reason.

Comment: You have repeatedly said that all spiritual methods and religions originated from Kabbalah, from Abraham.

My Response: Yes, they are even called Abrahamic.

Question: In that generation souls very close to nature prevailed, and it was enough for a person to ask the question: What is the meaning of my life? Why did so many become philosophers then?

Answer: It does not matter whether a person asked this question or not. All the same, one should have had a point in the heart, should nonetheless have felt that he was attracted by the revelation of the upper world, that he had to feel it, learn from his own experience and not think that he is already in the higher realm based on some mental or physical exercises.
