The science of Kabbalah- What is the meaning of Life?
We see through the centuries and many generations how human life has evolved. From hunters to gatherers in the early stages of man, to the more modern era of global trade and an integrated network of connection that maintains a global existence.
We see how the world has moved from one era to another, where humans tried to fulfil their basic desires for food, sex, and shelter, to communal living, subsistence and a need to continually improve the quality of their standard of living.
After many millennia we have now reached a new period where we see and feel that the chasing and fulfilment of the initial desires, hold no fulfilment to the question of :
What are we living for?
We are now at a point where we see and feel that gaining more of everything we personally desire (fills and satiates us), doesn’t fulfil us, other than for a brief instant of pleasure, fades within a short period of time, and then, we try to move on to something new, to regain the pleasure we experienced once more.
Increasingly, people have begun to ask the questions
For what reason do we live and die?
What is the reason and purpose to life?
We have reached a new era where humans start to feel that life isn’t worth living chasing transient fulfilment of desires of the body. We want to feel and fulfil a greater desire. We ask the question repeatedly-What is the meaning of my Life?
At this point, and with this question in mind, we are brought unconsciously in a quest for answers, to the one place we can find it – The Kabbalah.
Kabbalah opens up new thoughts, questions, and desires within us. Kabbalah gives us answers to the questions about life itself such as:
- What and who are we?
- Where do we come from?
- Where are we going?
- What is life?
- What are human beings?
- What is all this life I see that surrounds me?
- What is it all for?
To quote one of the greatest Kabbalist’s of modern times!
Yehuda Leib HaLevi Ashlag.
“Humanity seems to be plunging into depression, suicide and drugs abound, and people are trying to disengage themselves from the world, and suppress their feelings. Terrorism and a rapid upsurge in natural disasters are symptoms of a global crisis, and all these states are leading humanity to one fundamental question: What is the meaning of life?
The science of Kabbalah has been concealed over millennia for this very reason. People were not ready for it and did not need it. But in recent years its appeal has risen dramatically. Many have taken up Kabbalah studies, curious as to what it can give them.
Once a person realises that Kabbalah answers the question about the meaning of life, he or she no longer feels intimidated.
Thus, today people are ready for the science of Kabbalah. It welcomes all those who truly seek to discover the meaning of life, the source of our existence, and offers a practical method of attaining it.
I implore anyone reading this blog!
Don’t give up; Seek your answers; look in the one place you will find answers- Kabbalah
