Question: How can an ordinary person implement the Kabbalistic method by hearing about it?
Answer: The Kabbalistic methodology is understood only by the one who implements it on himself, and in accordance with this, his idea of the world completely changes.
As a result, the method comes down to the fact that I put myself under the influence of the right environment, under the influence of the right, benevolent forces of development, that will force me to change gently, and I try to do everything in my power to change under the influence of the environment.
Let us say there is some kind of shell around me. I am told: “If you jump 100 times, this shell will affect you, and as a result you will receive some changes.” I ask, “Can I jump 100 times?” “Yes, you can be sure of that.” I jump 100 times and still deserve a reward, i.e., I am starting to change. This is how the environment affects me.
Question: But why can’t even those who have been practicing for more than 15 years come to the realization of spiritual principles?
Answer: Because they cannot convince themselves that it is important, and this is their only free action. They do not use their freedom of choice.
