What Kabbalah Is, Isn’t, and Why You Simply Can’t Live Without It

What Kabbalah Is, Isn’t, And Why You Simply Can’t Live Without It

Why Kabbalah Was Hidden Until Now

For 2,000 years, the study of Kabbalah was forbidden to women and men under age forty, and there was a reason for this restriction. In fact, all the books of Kabbalah, including the Torah (the Pentateuch), were written only for our time, when everyone needs to practice the science of Kabbalah. What we should all do now is open the Kabbalah books and begin to learn how to attain the upper world.


What Kabbalah Is and Isn’t

Kabbalists have expressed their frustration at the fact that we are still not using the study of Kabbalah as a springboard for the attainment of the upper worlds, since that is the one key to the gate of spirituality, the knowledge and the understanding of the wisdom of the upper world, which means eternal life, happiness, wholeness, and bounty for all humankind

Kabbalah is a science with clear and concise laws that must be studied. It has no connection with charms and blessings and other things that are done in its name, originating in the time Kabbalah was concealed from people and ascribed magical forces. The books of Kabbalah clearly explain what steps we need to take to acquire that knowledge.

The special thing about genuine books of Kabbalah is that they are suitable for all and contain the connection between the soul of the person who is studying them and the upper worlds, from which that person’s soul originates. The books direct us to develop in our own unique way, according to our inner structure and the root of our souls. This is much like the way a person chooses a profession in our world— according to personal character and the inclination of his or her heart.


Kabbalah Is a Manual for How to Live in the 21st Century

Our pace of progress depends on our own will, how much we desire to know what is written in the books and our desire to know the upper world. The study makes a person begin to prefer the nearness of the upper world and to choose living according to spiritual laws rather than living according to the corporeal laws of our world. A person necessarily connects him- or herself to good, positive forces through this study.

We will always believe, and hang our hopes, on a change that will come from above, on a change of luck, on things getting better. It is true that what happens in our world today is a direct consequence of what comes down to us from the upper spiritual world. But we can make sure that only good forces descend on us and give us bounty, provided we know how to act in the spiritual worlds.

We will know how to act correctly by a practical and systematic study of the structure of the upper worlds. We will learn to avoid a negative reaction to our actions, to do only things that will provoke a positive change in our lives. If our connection with the upper worlds were organized correctly, it would be for the best of all of us, for our own people, for the other nations, and for the whole world.

Awakening to Kabbalah by Dr. Michael Laitman“What Kabbalah Is, Isn’t, And Why You Simply Can’t Live Without It” is based on the book, Awakening to Kabbalah: The Guiding Light of Spiritual Fulfillment by Dr. Michael Laitman.
