An important goal in the study of Kabbalah is to use one's knowledge to influence one's destiny. Firstly, one has to realise what life is, what its meaning is, why it is given to us, where it begins, and where it ends. After pondering and meditating on the above questions, one has to relate all this to Kabbalah. Kabbalah states that the Creator created all the worlds simultaneously, including our world, and we human beings have to use Kabbalah in our world, the finite material world. In order to further advance our understanding of the wisdom of Kabbalah, we need to lift our mind's eye above the horizon of our material world. Kabbalah clarifies our perception of reality. What we see around us is subjective and exists only in relation to ourselves. Our perception depends on our organs of sensation: if they were different, we would perceive another world around us. This book provides the reader with a solid foundation for understanding the role of Kabbalah in our world. The contents was designed to allow individuals all over the world to begin traversing the initial stages of spiritual ascent toward the apprehension of the upper realms.
