Writing a Book of Kabbalah

Living in our world, we absorb various pictures and impressions. Because of that we can all describe what we feel. But Kabbalistic books describe what a person who feels this world and the upper-spiritual world at the same time feels, he describes his feelings of a world that others do not feel.

That is the uniqueness of the books of Kabbalah. They describe things an ordinary person cannot feel, though they are attainable. A Kabbalist is not just a person who feels the upper world; it is someone who can describe his emotions in a clear language so that we too can understand them. Thus, by studying these books, we will be able to nurture the missing senses inside us, the ones with which we will be able to feel the upper world, to the point where we can see our past and future situations. After all, “there is no time in spirituality.” This way we can all attain the sensation of the eternal upper world, and live willingly in both at once.

There is a special force in books of Kabbalah: any person, who studies those books under the right guidance, can attain the spiritual degree of the author. That is why it is crucial that we know which books to study.

There are many books of Kabbalah, written in various styles and forms, and written by Kabbalists in various degrees of attainment. We now know which of the books are the ones that help enter the spiritual world, which of them direct one like a guide book, intended for a person lost in an alien country.

There are several ways to describe the spiritual worlds. The spiritual world and our own world are parallel. Every thing in the spiritual world comes down to ours. All the events originate in the upper world. They descend from it to ours, and cloth the suitable objects of this world very accurately.

There is not an object, phenomenon or force in this world that is not a consequence of the upper world. Therefore, Kabbalists use names taken from our world in order to describe spiritual objects, for they are all the roots of our world.

An ordinary person, as yet without a ‘spiritual screen’, relates to books of Kabbalah as a kind of fairytale stories that happen in our world. But one who is already a Kabbalist will not be confused by the words, for he knows precisely which ‘branch’ they stem from, and which consequence in our world correlates to the ‘root’ in the spiritual world.

That is how the Torah was written. The books of the prophets, however, were written in a different language, the Language of Legends, whereas the Talmud describes the laws of the spiritual world as acts, laws and commandments that exist in our world. Thus, even behind the words of the Talmud we should see the objects and actions of the upper world.

It has been many years since the time of the first man. The earth is filled with his descendants and the generations that followed him. Among them were some great Kabbalists, but their books never came into our hands. There are scrolls that were found, but it is impossible to detect an orderly method in them.
