Nature gives me a whole array of feelings and I need to rise above them – not to feel that state, but rather to process it and use it as a means.

By nature, we were supposed to develop through suffering by discovering that we’re opposite to nature; Kabbalah teaches how to rise above that.

Spirituality has nothing to do with our physical body whatsoever, but only with the correction of our nature from receiving to giving.

In spirituality there is no “I” and “you,” only the connection between us and the extent to which one accepts this connection as his own feelinge.

It takes a long time in order to appreciate the force that lies in the Zohar, but later on it becomes as essential as food and water.

We all consist of all qualities and tendencies; when a certain tendency awakens, one needs to balance and direct it toward the spiritual goal.

Everything that I agree with, doesn’t belong to spirituality; however, what doesn’t make sense, things I don’t agree with, require inner work.

It doesn’t matter where in the Zohar you begin to read; what matters is the intention and what you wish to attain from this reading.

The entire inner search which belong to spiritual advancement exists inside our tendency to unite; if not, then it’s not spirituality.

The proper environment for spiritual growth includes books, a teacher and friends who also value and share the same spiritual goal.

We need to develop in us the sense of recognizing the evil inclination, to “smell” it from afar and correct it before it erupts.

In order to desire spirituality we need to value its importance; therefore we were given the appropriate environment for us to advance.

If we read the Book of Zohar and feel bad or upset, it means that we are performing a correct action and that the text is influencing us well.

“Man” is an inner observation that exists in a person only to the degree that one desires to rise above his corporeal body.

Baal HaSulam’s method is the means by which a person ascends in his qualities and gradually becomes more similar to nature.

All parts of the body have the same significance and thus when they all connect as equal, they are in harmony with nature.

In every desire that has the will to connect with others, there is already correspondence and contact with the upper force.

By annulling myself before members of my spiritual environment, I lose myself only in their internality, not corporeality; thus I ascend.

I can’t measure my spiritual advancement with my brain or emotion, but only by the degree of my annulment before them.

I could be feeling good or bad, it doesn’t matter – what matters is that I draw strength and inspiration from my spiritual environment.

In the physical world we may follow customs and traditions, but external actions belong to corporeality, not to a person’s spiritual level.

The more a person gains for himself through self-interest, the more he finds justification to his actions until he enters an irreversible state.

If I communicated properly with my environment, for the sake of giving, I would discover the phenomena written in the Zohar inside of me.

These days, the wisdom of Kabbalah is beginning to present itself as a means to satisfy a person in this world and bring him to a higher level.

The right approach to customs is to arrange everything that exists in the physical world, in a way that it’ll help me correct my soul.

When we realize that everything in nature is connected and operates together, we’ll be able to take those examples and do the same.

The wisdom of Kabbalah’s essence is that all the elements connect to one another and form a complete picture; everything operates together.

Nature is benevolent; we, on the other hand, consist of two qualities – existence and absence. Thus, only through opposites do we feel our reality.

If the evil inclination didn’t exist against the benevolent force of nature, man wouldn’t be able to evolve as a result of knowing that gap.

If humanity evolved in a more spiritual manner, we wouldn’t need such a significant corporeal development and large quantities of people.

Our desire to receive develops qualitatively – from physical desires to human and social desires and thus one begins to yearn for spirituality.

You’re not responsible for your current state, but you need to be prepared for it as a result of your previous efforts.

A person needs to have an inner concern about diverting from the spiritual path. Thanks to this concern he receives help from above.

The more developed a person is, the higher a chance he has to be diverted to a different and unrealistic goal, than to enter spirituality.

When our desire to receive begins to develop we feel the need to advance thru actions; later on, nature wakens us to become just like it.

The desire to be more united manifests in the urge to share a common feeling where there is no “I” and “others,” but only a newly born reality.

We need to try and understand what occurs in the Zohar on the spiritual level only, not on the corporeal world level whatsoever.

We need to try and feel what the Zohar wants to reveal to us, but this revelation needs to be attained through unity and connection.

The environment that shares the same desire for spirituality as me, is the means to reach spirituality and attain equilibrium with nature.

We need to scrutinize what is the true greatest desire that should be and through the Zohar we want to correct our desire, work with it.

Every word in the Zohar is a desire / an intention; I need to search for those attributes within me and how I connect to others through the text.

From the Holy Ari until Baal HaSulam, there hasn’t been a greater Kabbalist in spreading the wisdom of Kabbalah than the Baal Shem Tov.

Everything depends on our environment; if we are part of an environment that raises the importance of spirituality, we will succeed.

We reveal the Zohar only through the connection between us and if a person doesn’t yearn for connection he can’t discover what’s written in the Zohar.

One needs to constantly verify what his motive is and by what means he wants to advance toward the spiritual goal and be closer to the truth.

The world is arranged in a way that if you want to perform the right action, everything falls into place and allows you to perform it.

We need to refer to the Zohar as a code, series of spiritual instructions; the more I want this code to change me, the more I connect to it.

The Book of Zohar is written in a way that seems clear & logical, but it is actually a story that is very far apart from our understanding.
