A Guide to the Hidden Wisdom of Kabbala
To help students avoid failure, a list of questions and answers and an index
of words and expressions is provided. During study sessions, attention is
drawn to spiritual truth, not to the depth or measure of comprehension.
What is important is that the student is motivated to make spiritual progress,
and not merely to advance intellectually.
It is true that people are attracted to the wisdom of Kabbalah in the hope of
becoming more successful. We are all made of the desire to receive pleasure.
It is our basic makeup, but with proper instruction some of us attain
spirituality and eternity. Others, without the proper instruction, live under
the illusion that they have achieved something spiritual. In fact, they lose
their chance of attaining spirituality in this lifetime.
