If You Study, You’ll Get Wiser
Q: Will the study of the Kabbalah increase my intelligence?
A: A person’s desires are very small at birth. Then they begin to develop to a slight degree. How much these desires develop determines how much the mind develops. The brain can develop only to the extent that it must in order to satisfy our desires.
But when we embark on the study of Kabbalah, our desires grow and we become more and more egotistical, and therefore smarter.
But there is no need to worry: when you study, you will get everything you need for your development from Above. You will actually feel something new within you—a gift from the Creator.
