The question about the meaning of life is the next degree in human development. We must go beyond death, so that it is not an obstacle for us, and begin to perceive the world higher, bigger, wider, and beyond our material sense organs.
Question: Does only a Kabbalist possess this knowledge?
Answer: No. Kabbalah is simply a technique for expanding our senses beyond what the body feels. Then we begin to talk about what we attain, about the boundary that we remove from ourselves.
Right now this boundary is limited by the existence of my body. If I begin to move this boundary further, then I include into my range of feelings an additional existence, an additional world. I explore it, I live in it, I communicate, I treat it the same way as I treat our world.
And then the question of the meaning of life disappears from me. I begin to understand that it is in its perpetual continuation beyond the limits of the current existence in this tiny volume.
