I’d like to hear your commentary on the following ideas. It’s written: “A soul is a part of the Creator. It’s just that the Creator is whole and a soul is a part. Like a stone separated from a mountain, where a mountain is whole and a stone is a part…” Following this comparison, I just wonder if an analogy with a hologram could make a relation between the Creator and a soul easier...
Where inside the body is the soul? Will it be possible in the future to dismantle body parts and rebuild the body from spare parts? Does that mean that it will be possible to build a biological robot that will attain the spiritual world and a soul?..
Science has already succeeded in cloning the biological body, but what about the soul?..
What is the meaning of the assertion that there is nothing in common between Kabbalah and our bodies in this world?..
What happens to the animate part of the soul after our death?..
Where is the soul and what processes occur in it between each descent to this world? Are the questions about changing the soul and receiving a soul relevant only after crossing the barrier? How does the soul separate itself from the body? How does the soul transfer into the collective soul of Adam?..
Does the Kabbalah recognize the process of a dressing of a soul in the body, and if so, how does it explain it? At what point does the soul dress in man?..
While dressed in the physical body, does the soul exist only in our world?..
Baal HaSulam (Rabbi Yehuda Ashlag) wrote that he would not have been able to attain his degree if the Creator had not placed the soul of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai in him. Before that he had his own soul, and after that, the soul of Rabbi Shimon entered him. Did it unite with his original soul, or did he have two souls in one body?..
Are we born with a predetermined task that we live with and that we willingly (or unwillingly) perform, or, as the Ari explains, can we attain a soul by labor, effort and prayer?..
Does the soul have a gender, like the body? Are the souls of men different from those of women? What is the difference between feminine and masculine souls?..
Do evil leaders and dictators in our world have no spiritual souls, since they were destined to punish mankind? What connections have they with the “forces of darkness,” of impurity?..
Kabbalah belongs to all souls, yet Kabbalah is attributed specifically to Jews. Why?..
Are the soul and the point in the heart different names for the same essence? Why are there so many bodies in the world, but only 600,000 souls?..
You said in your lectures that only 600,000 souls descend to this world. How is it possible to explain that the number of the physical bodies in this world is much greater and reaches some seven billion? How do 600,000 souls divide among all the people on earth?..
How is it possible that in our world there are 600,000 souls, yet at the same time we learn that there is nothing but the creature and the Creator?..
When, according to the conventional calendar, did Adam’s fall occur? Is it worthwhile trying to reconcile the contradiction between the archaeologists’ beliefs and the Creator’s Words? Or is there no contradiction at all?..
To which part of Adam HaRishon can we attribute the souls that descended before Abraham, GE or AHP?..
The collective soul – the First Man – is a complete, rigid and uniform framework. Still, the souls that comprise it are adaptable, connected and mixed with each other. How can you explain this? Why do the parts of the First Man correct themselves separately instead of as one soul?..
How does the fact that each soul is unique and receives the Light according to its own characteristics, agree with what you write. You say that Kabbalists feel all the worlds equally?..
After the breaking of the First Man (the collective soul), 600,000 parts were created. Why, then, are we so different if each of us forms a similar part of something uniform and whole?..
How can I know which degree my soul is in, in the course of my spiritual development?..
Are there any TRUE ways, besides Kabbalah? If so, then what are they and how many?..
First, a man is limited by his nature, egoism. In the spiritual world, man is limited by the root of his soul, Malchut de Atzilut. Or does this root not limit the possibilities of a soul?..
What happened with the First Man later on? Did he live for 930 years and then die? If this is what will happen to us, then why hurry?..
How many lives does a person have to live? When does the soul dress in a physical body - is it at birth, or at another time?..
Is reincarnation the appearance of a new soul, which brings about the birth of a new person?..
Is the experience from past lives kept somewhere when we die? If a person did not attain anything in past lives, where is the root of that person’s soul?..
I told my relatives about Kabbalah, but they wouldn’t listen. How do I open their hearts?..
Is it true that there are souls that are connected to the “wisdom of the hidden” and souls that are connected to the “revealed wisdom?” Does each soul have its own spiritual root, by which it can fulfill itself?..
Man is born in our world through the joining of a physical body with its spirit, which may already be at a certain level in the spiritual worlds, meaning, by definition, it can already have a screen. Why, then, is there a need to start from the beginning in the physical world?..
What is the connection between our body and the spiritual bodies?..
What happens to a soul that is dressed in a smart person and how is it affected by such a mind and character?..
Is there a physical death in Kabbalah? Is there anything after death?..
Is the passage to the spiritual worlds done during sleep and dreaming?..
I understand from your words that all the situations that the soul goes through in the spiritual world, materialize later on in our world. If the soul has already gone through the spiritual state called Pharaoh, will this Pharaoh materialize afterwards in our world? Will it be in a body with a soul in the state of Pharaoh, or within a body that answers to the name Pharaoh with his earthly attributes?..
