The Wisdom of Kabbalah – 28th Tevet, 5771


Kabbalah for the Student

Kabbalists Write about the Wisdom of Kabbalah.

    The young, or those who find themselves heavy and of little desire for the Inner Light, must, at the very least, make it a rule to dedicate one or two hours a day to the wisdom of truth. In time, their minds will broaden and abundant success will unfold on their study of the essence of the Torah, as well, and their strength in scrutiny will mount and grow with pure ideas and broadening of the mind.

–The Rav Raiah Kook,
Igrot (Letters), Vol. 1, 82

In the End of Days

In the End of Days

Kabbalah explains that in the end of days, the light of the Creator will become apparent not just to one people, but also to the whole of mankind. And then all the people will see and appreciate their attributes for what they really are. That will bring about the correct situation both in our earthly lives and in spirituality. Every one will behave correctly; will be freed of concern for him alone and will unite in one common aim to equalize with the Creator. The necessary condition for this is to come to a situation where each person will have only one desire, to discover the Creator. Only then will the Creator actually be revealed. One can attain it only on condition that man discovers the Creator with his own strength.

The collective discovery of the Creator will only occur in the end of days, but we are not far from it. There is, however, an individual revelation of the Creator as well. It happens when man discovers the Creator for himself, through a great indefatigable effort in the special method of the Kabbalah. And until the collective revelation of the Creator, he rises in the spirit by himself and lives in the future state of mankind.

But even when he rises to the degree of the sensation of the Creator, he still helps others attain the sensation of the Creator for themselves. Hence the importance of the circulation of the wisdom of Kabbalah for everyone, so that people will know that there is such a thing, to learn Kabbalah and discover the Creator for themselves. By living in both worlds they will attain the degree of perfection and eternity – the endless delight.

We don’t have to wait for the end of time in order to attain that situation, because our situation is already the lowest possible spiritual degree.

We can rush the good times and bring them sooner, not by making dreadful mistakes and horrible torments, but by the attainment of power, a supreme power through the wisdom of Kabbalah. We must act so that the whole of mankind wakes up and understands how a better life can be attained. The revelation of the light is the force that can correct the whole world.

The wisdom of Kabbalah has nothing to do with religion, it is above it, and was created for the whole of mankind. Because of that it is worthwhile to spread the wisdom of Kabbalah throughout the world, until the words – “for they shall all know Me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them” (Jeremiah 31, 33) come true. And that can be attained only through the wisdom of Kabbalah.

Baal Shem Tov – 28th Tevet, 5771

Daily Teachings of the Baal Shem Tov

 

 

Rabbi Rephael of Bershad taught: A man whose son had gone astray once came to the Baal Shem Tov. “Love him even more,” the Baal Shem Tov advised, “and this will help him to return to G-d.”

(Midrash Pinchas 38b).

The Teachings of Rebbe Pinchas of Koretz and His Disciple, Rebbe Raphael of Bershad

ON THE IMMANENCE OF G-D

R’ Pinchas said: “[At the time of creation the light of G-d flowed from the sphere of the spiritual down to the physical world through a series of vessels or emanations.] But the vessels proved unable to contain the Divine Light. They broke. This primordial catastrophe is called shevirat hakeilim, the Breaking of the Vessels. You can better understand it with an analogy. Think of a man who is deeply troubled and depressed. Suddenly he receives an exhilarating piece of good news. His troubles are over. Instead of jumping for joy, the man will break down crying. The “bright light” of the good news was too much for him. Similarly, shevirat hakeilim means that the vessels broke because they could not encompass the brilliant splendor of the luminescent Divine Light” *

*Imrei Pinchas HaShalem, Bereshit 9 (A, B), cited in The Great Chasidic Masters, by Avraham Y. Finkel, p. 35 (B)
