Question: What does practicing Kabbalah give a person?
Answer: A person falls under the influence of completely different, higher forces.
By practicing Kabbalah, we attract upon ourselves what is called the surrounding light, a certain force that begins to shape us. It makes a man out of a man, and woman out of a woman, but gradually because this is a lengthy process.
We live in a transitional period now. For the first time we are trying to put the Kabbalistic methodology into practice. I hope that already in this generation we will be able to make such an ascent to the next degree where men and women will attain nature and be in harmony: men with the male part of nature and women with the female part of nature.
Then they will be able to give their children, the next generation, the correct upbringing based on their corrected nature.
We need to educate people. Now they receive education, but not upbringing. We do not educate a person; we do not give him any concepts about proper social, family, or personal life.
I often give the example of how as students we went to the maternity ward for the first time and saw childbirth. I was seventeen and a half years old at the time. I was shocked! My attitude toward women changed. Forever! After that, us boys started relating differently to everything.
We need to make upbringing right for both men and women. It will change the world.
