Answer: No, he is afraid. If he still exists in the body, then he cannot go anywhere.
Kabbalists get sick and suffer physically just like ordinary people and even more so. We can say that they feel all cataclysms before other people: both through the spiritual on their corporeal body, and through the corporeal on the spiritual one.
In this sense, they are more sensitive and more vulnerable because they also have a “subtle body.” So a Kabbalist is not protected more than other people.
Therefore, a Kabbalist, by being connected with everyone else, feels these blows and sometimes feels them first.
