The Place of Your Heart's Desires

Is the study of the wisdom of Kabbalah like the study of other wisdoms?

It is written that "a man only learns where his heart desires." This means that there is no demand for any path of learning; one doesn't need to study a certain amount of materials, to memorize particular materials, or repeat things several times. And certainly there is no need for tests of knowledge. Each person studies according to this way. We are speaking here of the most internal thing there is. Each person learns according to his soul.

Idolatry 

What is the meaning of building "a sculpture" or "an image"? What is "idolatry" according to the wisdom of Kabbalah?

Everything we learn, except the wisdom of Kabbalah, tells us about what happens here in this world. And for this, we have imagination, power of thought, habits, and previous learning through which we can describe these phenomena and learn about them by being able to build their correct patterns in us.

In contrast to this, when we read books of Kabbalah, we can't at all correctly imagine to ourselves what is being spoken about. And if we imagine something, then the image, from the beginning, is a complete lie.  This is so since the spiritual world is completely different with different attributes, different vessels, completely new understanding and feeling with no connection at all to anything parallel in this world, nothing. Thus, when we describe something from the spiritual world while we are not there, it is called building "a sculpture" or "an image," "idolatry."
