You Don’t Have to be a Kabbalist to Understand the Enormous Benefit that Comes from Studying Kabbalah

You Don’t Have to be a Kabbalist to Understand the Enormous Benefit that Comes from Studying Kabbalah

What Does Kabbalah Study?

The Kabbalah is a science that studies the system of creation, the way it was formed, the root of its essence and its structure. It examines how the Creator conducts this system and how creation should correct itself to rise to the degree of the Creator, which is in fact the purpose of creation. Kabbalah is a science that deals with drawing near to the Creator, whereas religion simply indicates to people what they should do with the protein bodies of our world. The wisdom of Kabbalah has no connection with any popular religious movements.


The Real Reason behind the Development of Hasidism

The Baal Shem Tov created the movement of Hasidism to help the Jewish orthodox person integrate a certain amount of spiritual intention in the performance of the physical Mitzvot (commandments). However, the Baal Shem Tov was first and foremost a Kabbalist of the highest degree. He therefore established Hasidism as a popular movement in order to select out of the masses the few people who had the desire and the ability to become Kabbalists. This way he managed to find disciples who later became the first Admorim (Jewish masters and teachers), who went on to establish their own trends in Hasidism and beyond. The task of the movement was to select the individuals who wanted to attain the Creator from the collective and render certain support to the general public.


Why a Kabbalist Performs Internal Corrections

A Kabbalist is a person who studies the system of creation through inner efforts. This person looks deeply into him- or herself and performs actions called “Tikkunim” (corrections). This way he or she climbs the ladder of the spiritual worlds to the end of correction, to complete equivalence of form with the Creator and total adhesion with Him. That can only be attained through the wisdom of Kabbalah, and only a person who has already been awakened to spirituality can come to that. The Baal Shem Tov assumed that if he imparted the public with a basic knowledge in the wisdom of Kabbalah through the movement of Hasidism, the ones who sensed the points in their hearts would finally come to him.


What Kabbalah Can Do for You

All people will eventually come to feel that they need spiritual elevation, but it is a gradual process. All ailments and pains in the world stem from misusing the will to receive. Hence, all people need is the knowledge of how to use their spiritual and corporeal desires correctly. The wisdom of Kabbalah explains to people how to use their desires in the most effective way to benefit themselves, their family, and the whole of humankind now and for all times.

Awakening to Kabbalah by Dr. Michael Laitman“You Don’t Have to be a Kabbalist to Understand the Enormous Benefit that Comes from Studying Kabbalah” is based on the book, Awakening to Kabbalah: The Guiding Light of Spiritual Fulfillment by Dr. Michael Laitman.
