people and under the guidance of an authentic teacher, we can qualitatively
modify our organs of sensation and discover the spiritual world and the
Kabbalah teaches that the only thing created is the desire to have pleasure
and delight. Our brain is aimed only at the development of this sensation,
measuring it correctly. The brain is an auxiliary appliance, nothing more.
The result of studying Kabbalah correctly is a comprehensive and thorough
experience of the true universe, as clear as our present perception of our
The perception of both worlds gives us a full and large-scale picture,
including the highest force, the Creator who rules the entire universe.
Kabbalah is talking about new sensations and feelings perceived by man;
they appear not in man’s brain but in his heart. The heart reacts to man’s
inner reactions even though it is simply a pump.
In fact our sensations – feelings – are a pure spiritual substance. The various

As man sees all the due causes and effects, he begins to know what is useful
and what is not. Naturally, nobody will consciously violate something while
he sees what brings him a reward and what leads to a punishment.
Therefore, the revelation of the Creator grants man the opportunity to
behave correctly in each specific case with maximum benefit. Such a man is
then called a tzadik, a righteous man. He perceives the Creator, the reward
