Why Now Is the Time of Deliverance & the Great Gift It Offers

Why Now Is the Time of Deliverance & the Great Gift It Offers

Step One – Grab the Power of Kabbalah Like a Rope Thrown to a Drowning Person

There are two parts to Kabbalah: revealed and hidden. Both constitute the Creator’s thoughts. Kabbalah is like a rope thrown from above to a drowning person in a sea of egoism. By observing spiritual laws, a person prepares for the second, main stage when the one who observes and the one who obliges spiritually merge.

 

Revealed! The Steps on the Spiritual Ladder and What You Will See on the Climb

Those who observe spiritual rules go through five levels: NefeshRuachNeshamaHaya, andYechida. Each level consists of five sub-levels, which are then divided into five additional sub-levels. In all, the ladder of spiritual ascent, or closeness to the Creator, consists of 125 steps. The five main steps of this ladder are called “worlds.” Their sub-levels are called Partzufim, which consist of Sefirot.

All that exists in a certain spiritual world perceives the objects in that world and below it. However, they cannot even imagine or feel anything from a higher world. Therefore, one who reaches one of the 125 levels attains all the souls that exist there from the past, present, and future generations and remains there with them.

 

How Through Kabbalah You Can Gain Sight of Incredible Levels of Attainment

We, who exist only in our world, are unable to imagine or feel anything existing at other levels or other worlds, including those that populate them.

Kabbalists that reach a certain level on their path to the Creator can describe that level with expressions that only people who attained it can understand. Those who have not attained the described level can be confused by such descriptions and be led away from the correct understanding.

You Can Totally Transform Your Nature and Reveal the Secrets of the Universe

You Can Totally Transform Your Nature and Reveal the Secrets of the Universe

The Bad News Is – Transformation Is Beyond Your Power; The Good News Is – There Is Another Way

By following the Creator’s will, feelings, and thoughts, we become like Him. In the same way that the Creator acts only for the sake of His created beings, we have to wish well for our fellow beings and to be good to them all.

However, is it possible for us to do good to others with absolute selflessness?

After all, the Creator created us as absolute egoists, possessing only the will to enjoy. It is impossible for us to transform our nature. Even if we could always be good to each other, we would consciously or subconsciously try to derive some benefit for ourselves. Unless we see some self-profit, we are unable to make even the slightest movement for the sake of another.

 

Why You Should Learn How to Draw the Light Upon Yourself through Kabbalah

People are powerless to change their nature of absolute egoism, let alone transform it into something completely opposite. We are unable to be good without receiving honor, rest, fame, health, or money in return.

This is why the method of observing the spiritual laws through Kabbalah was given to humanity. Using the method of Kabbalah, we can draw the light upon ourselves that transforms our nature. There is no other means by which our nature can be changed.

 

To Envision Your Transformation, Take Example from Nature

The body and its organs make a single whole and constantly exchange sensations and information. For example, if the body feels that one of its parts can improve the general condition of the whole body, that particular part immediately feels it and fulfills this will. In case some body part suffers, the whole body instantly knows about it and tries to improve the situation.

Discover How to Travel to the Spiritual World and What Awaits You There

Discover How to Travel to the Spiritual World and What Awaits You There

Meet the Greatest Gift You Can Reach in the Spiritual Realm and the Big Question It Raises for You

Kabbalah explains that the correct, consistent observance of spiritual laws leads to adhesion with the Creator. Yet, what does the word “adhesion” mean? Indeed, because of the limits of time, a three-dimensional space, and bodily desires, our thoughts cannot grasp the Creator, i.e. the quality of love and bestowal. Therefore, as long our thoughts are bound by these limits, we cannot be objective.

 

How to Open the Door to the Spiritual Dimension through Transcending the Ego

As we transcend our egos, the will to receive and the definitions of time, space, and motion change. They acquire a spiritual dimension. In that state, we control our will to receive and are not governed by it. Therefore, our thoughts do not depend on the will to receive, and hence are objective.

 

Use the Premier Trick of Play Acting to Merge with the Creator

Kabbalah offers the attainment of equivalence of properties and actions with the Creator as a means of nearing Him. It says: merge with His actions; be as kind, caring, and as humble as He. Yet, how can one be sure that the Creator’s actions and the Creator Himself are the same? Moreover, why should I merge with Him by imitating His actions?

In the material world, we imagine merging, or adhesion, as shortening the distance between bodies, and understand separation as moving away from one another. However, the spiritual realm lacks such concepts as time, space, and motion. This is why the equivalence of properties between two spiritual objects draws them closer to one another, and the difference in properties moves them apart. There can be no adhesion or separation (in contrast to the adhesion or separation in space) because the spiritual object itself takes no place.

 

Why You Must Avoid the Proverbial Axe that Cuts Off Spirituality and How to Do It

Just as an axe divides a physical object, the appearance of a new property in a spiritual object divides it into two parts. That is, if the difference in properties is insignificant, then the spiritual objects are close to one another.

The bigger the distinction between their properties, the more remote they are from one another. If they love each other, they are spiritually “close,” and the distance between their corporeal shells is unimportant. The relationship between them is determined by their spiritual affinity.  If one likes something that is disliked by another, the distance between them depends on the difference in their views and sensations. They are considered completely opposite if one of them likes everything the other hates.

 

You Can Use Your Affinity for Spirituality to Take You There

Thus, we see that in the spiritual world (the world of desires), similarity or difference in aspirations, desires, ideas, and properties plays the role of an axe, dividing the spiritual into parts. The distance between spiritual objects is determined by the extent of incongruence between their sensations and properties.

To the extent that our attributes are similar to the Creator’s, we feel Him, become part of Him, and merge with Him.

If You Want to Attain Your Ultimate Development without Suffering, Kabbalah Has the Instructions

“Only in the process of studying authentic Kabbalistic texts do you connect with the Upper World and evoke upon yourself the influence of the Upper Light, which can transport you from the perception of this world to the perception of the Upper World. There is no other method that can allow you to achieve such a transformation! Therefore, when the world and you are ready for it, Kabbalah becomes revealed and is offered to you as the method of correction.”

~ Dr. Michael Laitman, in “Why Is Studying Kabbalah Good for You.”

 

3 Questions about Kabbalah the Wise Seeker Wants Answered

  • What is the essence of Kabbalah?
  • Is the purpose of Kabbalah aimed at life in this world or in the future one?
  • Who benefits from Kabbalah: the Creator or His creatures?

Read on to find the answers to these crucial questions…

 

The 2 Paths of Personal Development and Your Choice in Between Them

Two paths of development in the right direction are prepared for us:

  • A path of suffering that compels us to escape it. We do not see the goal and are forced to run away from the pain. This path is called “unconscious evolution,” or “a path of pain.”
  • The path of conscious, painless, and quick spiritual development by following the Kabbalistic method, which facilitates a quick attainment of the desirable result.

 

How Kabbalah Brings You to Self-Perfection, in a Nutshell

The purpose of all the laws of development using the method of Kabbalah is to recognize the good and evil within us, and develop recognition of evil (i.e. the recognition of the egoistic will to receive within us as the source of all pain). By observing the spiritual laws, we can rid ourselves of all evil. This is because the difference in one’s development creates either a deeper, or a more superficial, recognition of evil, and a more powerful or less powerful desire to be rid of it. The game of self-perfection is centered on intensifying the recognition of evil and also the desire to be free from it.

The Real Reason Why Kabbalah Was Hidden for 1,000s of Years

The Real Reason Why Kabbalah Was Hidden for 1,000s of Years

The History of Kabbalah’s Concealment

The wisdom of Kabbalah as a partial method was established by Abraham the patriarch in ancient Babylon. Since Abraham’s time some 3,800 years ago, until approximately 2,000 years ago, the wisdom of Kabbalah was known only to the people of Israel. Since the ruin of the Temple approximately 2,000 years ago, through our generation, Kabbalah has been hidden from the public and has been secretly passed on from generation to generation among Kabbalists.

During the period when Kabbalah was concealed, various stigmas were attributed to it. It was considered mysticism, witchcraft, magic, etc., but no one knew what it was really about, hence the false notions. Also, the thriving present-day industry that uses the name “Kabbalah” to market services and products has nothing whatsoever to do with the actual essence of the wisdom of Kabbalah.

 

Today Anyone, Anywhere, Can Study Kabbalah

But the time of concealment has ended. Today, the original wisdom of Kabbalah is resurfacing for all people, regardless of age, sex, religion or race. Kabbalah is a higher science. It does not belong to any religion or faith, nor does it pose any boundaries or limitations to one who wishes to study it. Any person who wishes to understand the world he or she lives in, to know the soul, to know one’s fate and to learn how to govern it is welcome to study Kabbalah.

“If my people heeded me … they would delve in the study of The Book of Zohar … with nine-year-old infants,”5 said Kabbalist Rabbi Yitzhak Yehuda of Komarno as early as the 19th century. Following him, other Kabbalists recommended teaching this knowledge to children from a young age, giving them an explanation of the world that surrounds them, the connections among its parts, and the forces that affect it. Through such education grows a confident human being connected to the source of abundance, feeling in control of one’s life. Such a person knows how to best use these forces, and understands that life is unlimited.
