Know Yourself!

281.02Question: In material life, one should be satisfied with what is necessary for him. At less than this level, he will not be able to live. How can he establish what he needs?

Answer: Your spiritual development will provide those material needs that you need. There is no need to establish any rigid and coercive criteria, to put pressure on oneself and moreover on others, but engage in internal development, in what Kabbalah prescribes.

As soon as you start doing this you will begin to go through all kinds of states, sometimes not very pleasant ones, because you will discover who you are, what kind of person you are. As you gradually transform in accordance with what will be revealed to you, you will demand less or more from your life to that measure.

In no case should you change anything in yourself and act according to some canons, books, or other people’s advice. Proceeding directly from his inner change, a person himself will change, he himself will change his environment, he himself will relate to the world in a different way.

Kabbalah says that this is the most natural way of our development, cognition, and bringing ourselves to harmony. That is, you should not do anything, but simply gradually reveal yourself and the world. This is a process of self-discovery.

When you get to know yourself, you will naturally start sorting out the bad from the good and choose what is best. Thus, everything will begin to change naturally, smoothly, and effortlessly.
