Will we be able to direct reality, to be in balance with it?
In this method, the revelation of the true reality, there are degrees
called worlds. Just as researchers can go deeper into the structure of
matter using scientific measuring instruments, a microscope or a
telescope, moving deeper in or further out to greater distances, so too
do those researching reality, through the wisdom of Kabbalah, penetrate
into the depths of matter, thought and reality. Those degrees of inquiry
are called worlds. When elevating into those worlds there are many
surprises to be found.
I would say that advancing in the study of reality is a true adventure.
The person begins to sense and to see his or her future and past,
because it is suddenly discovered that there is no time, but that all
of these things exist, and that the person virtually moves on the axis
of time. The person finds that it is possible to go back or forward
even beyond the state at which he or she is now, and that the entire
reality, all the people around the person, live according to some pace
of time while he or she can run, advance a few thousands of years or go
back a few thousands of years in one year.
That is why these people who can suddenly make those leaps in time are
called prophets. It is not that they have some wild imagination, but
that they have advanced a few levels ahead and they are in that reality
which all humanity will experience in the future. So they tell us what
they feel. They can also be good historians, by descending to states
that we already were, reliving them and telling us about it.
The books of Kabbalah are written in the same way. For example,
Abraham went from here to there, he met such and such person, said
this, and did that. How do I know? It is simple - the Kabbalist who
studies, turns back on the axis of time, and reaches a state like that
of Abraham to the same degree, and the same situation, and then tells
us about all of reality; he is present in it, in all its details. He
can actually take all of his impressions from that state and transfer
them to us. Our problem is that we may not be able to understand it
correctly since we are not experiencing the same adventure, exciting as
it is. Besides being able to move on the axis of time, Kabbalists also
reveal additional powers in reality.
There is a reason why fairy tales
have ghosts, demons and angels. All of these forces do exist, and a
Kabbalist who investigates and penetrates nature begins to understand
how these forces work. The Kabbalist becomes connected with them, tells
us about them and uses them for his or her own personal development and
for our general development.
What I am trying to say is that even though penetrating reality is
difficult, it takes the entire soul of a person, all of ourselves, and
it fills us with everything possible. Then, a person who investigates
reality reveals that which has to be attained, and the reasons why there
are problems in each and every generation and situation. This means
that it is not just a theoretical investigation or a pure science, but
it is practical for that moment and state which the person is in.
wisdom of Kabbalah is intended to help the person. How is this so? By
being able to see the future and the past, to know which properties the
person had when he or she first emerged, or descended into this world
many incarnations ago, and also what the path is that he or she must go
From seeing both ends, the person already knows how to advance
from one stage to the other. At every single detail he passes on the
time axis, he can see which forces are acting on him, why he needs to
get married now, with these specific children, and that everything is
already sealed and determined, with there being no surprises. It all
emerges from the Reshimot, as we call them, or genes, as
scientists call them, which are our inner preparations.
We see this through very simple things. Two orphans who were separated
at a very young age suddenly find each other after 30 years, one living
in Australia and one in Norway. It turns out that they both married
women with similar names, named their children in the same way, have
the same profession, and even their house has the same street number.
It is really amazing. Why is this so? We do not know the reality in
which we can tie together all of these occurrences. But why does this
happen? Because we, with our attributes, determine what will happen to
So it is this every situation in life, as known in psychology. There
are for example some people who always get set up by others, who always
end up at a disadvantage, and there are others who are the opposite.
This means that people create their destiny in a primitive and simple
way. But once people get to know themselves and the forces acting on
them, they become capable of pre-arranging all of these situations.
They cannot escape fate completely, they have to go through certain
states because they need to learn something in each state, and acquire
something for the future goal, so that they will be ready to receive it.
So when the person already knows what it is that he or she has to
acquire in each state, in terms of knowledge, and experience, both
bitter or sweet, then the person prepares him or herself for the
There is a very nice article by Baal Hasulam called "revelation and
concealment" of the Creator's face. He writes that according to how
much a person knows how to direct the general law of reality, from face
to back, in both the good way and the bad, is the extent to which the
person can completely see the world and what happens to him or her in
an opposite manner.
And here is where we come to the other side of the wisdom of Kabbalah.
The fact is that it is not intended just for the knowledge of reality
as a pure science, where we can discuss what is in those worlds. We can
actually change the worlds, be above them, determine our own destiny
each day and be elevated. And all of the things that happen to us and
the forces that push us are only in order for us to reach the state
where we will direct reality, be in the balanced state in each and
every moment, and know what balance means.
