Thus It Is Written

Are we allowed to change the words of authentic texts and to interpret what is written there?

We are allowed to change the words of an authentic Kabbalistic text if it is for dissemination purposes. Rabash repeatedly said that it was worthwhile to do this with the writings and articles of Baal HaSulam, so that they would be more understandable.

Baal HaSulam and Rabash both used a very high language. Although there is a reason for it, we must rewrite their words in order for it to be more understandable to the general public. This is what we are doing right now with The Book of Zohar, changing it to Zohar for the Nation. Of course this is an impairment, and we don't even know to what extent.

A Kabbalist writes in the degree of his attainment, and if I interpret, as it were, what the Kabbalist has written, it would be a mistake. But the mistakes would be only in reference to the upper level and not to the lower level.

We prepare the material for beginners and give them a way to enter the wisdom of Kabbalah. They can advance up to our level; above this, they will already be studying the materials of the Kabbalists.

It is essential to read from the authentic text because the Light that Reforms comes through it. However, for the benefit of dissemination, it is permitted, together with reading from the authentic texts, to rewrite the articles in a simpler way.

Unholy Mixture

What is the meaning of the concept "unholy mixture" in the wisdom of Kabbalah?

The concept of "unholy mixture" talks about the inner desires of a person that are, as it were, supporting the way to spirituality. They say, as if, one should advance, but their intention is to use the Creator, the Upper Light, for the sake of receiving.

It is the most cunning shell (Klipa) because these desires want to use the Torah for the purpose of all kinds of requests of the ego for materialism, for things that are of this world.
