Why Study?

Q: Why should I study?

A: While we are working Lo Lishma, we cannot perceive that our actual purpose can be the opposite of our apparent intentions. That is where the question, “Why study?” comes from. When someone is still unable to see and understand that one must try to go against the mainstream of this world, I say: keep living like everyone else, because you have not yet evolved enough to aim for something higher than this world.

Such doubts about the rightness of the way can also come to advanced students who have already arrived at a certain spiritual level. They must continue to study the wisdom of Kabbalah with perseverance despite the obstacles they encounter, “as an ox for a burden and as a donkey to the burden.” Only one who insists on believing can progress, regardless of any reasoning.
