Kabbalistic Quotes, 20th Tishrei, 5771

Kabbalah, Bnei Baruch - Kabbalah Education & Research Institute

The science of Kabbalah is unique in the way it talks about you and me, about all of us. It doesn’t deal with anything abstract, only with the way we are created and how we function at higher levels of existence.

Kabbalistic Quote

The most important aspect of the process of self-improvement is the cultivation of one’s sense of humility before the Creator. This, however, should not be an artificial undertaking, but a goal of one’s efforts. If, as a result of working on the self, an individual gradually starts to develop this quality, then it means that he is proceeding in the right direction.
(Talmud, Avodah Zarah)

Daily Kabbalah Quote

“Each act of G-d is in order to respond to Him”

The entire purpose of creation was set in advance, as Baal HaSulam explains in the three states that he describes in the “Introduction to the Book of Zohar.” The Creator’s thought must be implemented for these laws are absolute, as it is written “He gave law and it cannot be passed” and there cannot be any concession of this. All of the creatures must arrive at adherence to the Creator, but Man has been given the possibility to expedite his development.

So it is written that G-d made everything so that it comes “to respond to Him,” that is from His point of view we are situated in the final state, in the state of perfection. But we have been given the free choice to feel this final state, if we so wish.

That is, if you want to feel yourself in a condition that is different from that which you are now in, you must request that from the Creator. You need only to want to be in the opposite condition, in His state, in His trait. And if you truly want it, He will do that for you. If not, then stay in your present condition and then you will get to an even worse state in order to awaken you to think: Maybe I really should change my situation – from receiving to bestowal. That is the whole point. We only have to ask the Creator to change the situation.

Motivational Quotes

Something Special

Do you have something special to smell — a rose, clean laundry, tasty food, fresh air? Breathe it in. Enjoy it. Say “What a great moment. What a wonderful life.”

Look around you. Notice the colors of your surroundings. Notice the shapes. Notice the movement — the branch that sways in the wind, the bird that hops on the windowsill, the rain that sprinkles the grass. Drink in the beauty. Enjoy it. Say “What a stunning world. What an awesome life.”

Listen to the noises of the moment — rumbling thunder, rumbling traffic, soft chatter, music. Feel the fabrics within your reach — cool metal, soft wool, shiny plastic, rough rug. Soak in your surroundings. Enjoy being alive. Say “What special gifts the Creator gives me.”

Make an effort to be happy each day, each hour. Make an effort to be happy, now.
