Question: When I attain the upper root, will I still have a desire to change something in the branches?
Answer: Certainly! Because we must achieve full similarity to the upper world precisely while we are in our world in order to connect the two worlds together. That is why we exist.
Question: If a woman is loyal to her Kabbalistic teacher, can he convey his knowledge to her? Or does this affect only men?
Answer: It makes no difference if it is a woman or a man at all. Loyalty doesn’t have to be to the Kabbalistic teacher, but to the method of correction.
Question: Why does a teacher convey information specifically through allegories?
Answer: How else is it possible to talk about the spiritual world if not through some kind of example or story? You see it is necessary to make some kind of impression in our world, to present something similar, so that the student will understand that as far as it seems, the matter happens like this in the upper world. Otherwise he cannot convey this knowledge. Therefore, there is a place for allegories and all kinds of symbols in the wisdom of Kabbalah.
Question: Where does a person’s desire to find a teacher or a guide come from?
Answer: This is not up to the person; that is how they attract him to a teacher and through the teacher to a higher goal, to the root of his soul.
Question: How does one work with the external sources that prove the truth of the wisdom of Kabbalah?
Answer: I am not familiar with any other sources! The answer is final and definite. If a person is in external sources, this means that he is simply confusing himself, he has no hope of finding out anything correctly.
Question: In the future, will there be a head of the Bnei Baruch organization, a new teacher, or will there be a ten?
Answer: What do you mean by in the future? Even today we have lecturers besides myself. These are dozens of my students. Anyone who has been designated as a lecturer by our organization, is a teacher that I can recommend to you. And just as in any other science, each one teaches in his or her own style, and you will choose for yourself already.
Question: What is worthwhile to copy from a teacher?
Answer: There is no need to copy anything except for how the teacher shows a student how much he wants to attain this wisdom, to discover it. You should be envious of a teacher who has such a great desire, even though he has already been involved with the wisdom of Kabbalah for many years. For example, I have been involved with this for 40 years already, and yet my desire has not waned.
Question: Does a teacher need to divert a student intentionally from the way for his development? Or does the teacher guide him only smoothly?
Answer: The teacher does not divert the student from the way. It is the natural egoism of the student that doesn’t make it possible for him to agree with the teacher fully and diverts him from the way. But at the same time, changes like these are also helpful.
