Bestowal Is Never Excessive
Question: How is it possible to
differentiate a real desire from an excessive one? How can I know that I'm not
asking for excessive things?
Answer: Bestowal is
never excessive. It is unlimited because there was no restriction on the Light
of Hassadim. Ask as much as you want; don't limit yourself. The most
exorbitant requests are fine. There is no calculation with the Light of Hassadim.
The calculation begins only when
you shift from the Light of Hassadim to the Light of Hochma, reception.

The Most Powerful Medicine Is Here – and You Don’t Need a Prescription
Question: As long as
we don't actually attain every word that the science of Kabbalah talks about according
to that word's degree in spirituality, we won't be able to understand it.
Before that happens, we are simply playing around with the words, with abstract
forms not clothed in mater. But if Kabbalah is being revealed as the method for

how to put on this garment! But I am told: Don't worry, it's tailored exactly
to your size, no bigger and no smaller!
Therefore, I must only advance
toward it, research and look for how I can dress into this garment. After all,
it was tailored especially for me and has been laid out before me.
It is possible to slightly adapt
the explanation, bringing it closer to people in order to make it easier for

us in the most perfect form. We can complain that we don't understand it since
it contains many unsuccessful examples (as they appear to us), abstract names
(as they seem to us), and The Book of Zohar is full of allegories that
