This is why the writing of The Zohar is often ascribed to Moshe De Leon, even though Moshe De Leon himself ascribed it to Rashbi. The Zohar states that it is written for a time when chutzpah (impudence) mounts and the face of the generation is as the face of a dog. When prominent Kabbalists such as the Vilna Gaon, Baal HaSulam, and others looked into the future, they declared the present generation as the one that The Zohar referred to. Clearly, they didn’t mean it as a compliment. Ra b b i I s aac L u r ia ( Th e A r i ) This stage in the development of Kabbalah is extremely important to the Kabbalah of our generation.
Here’s the Kabbalist’s logic, step by step: 1. The Creator is absolutely benevolent. 2. As a result, He wants to grant us absolute pleasure. 3. Absolute pleasure means being in His state: omniscient, omnipotent, and benevolent. 4. Therefore, we have to come to feel that His state is the absolute good state. In other words, we have to choose it of our own free will. 5. Free choice can only be made on condition that the Creator does not apply force on us, so that we are independent from Him. 6. Therefore, He is hidden and gave us the existence in this world where we don’t sense the Creator as vividly and as tangibly as we sense physical objects.
Kabbalah explains that life is based on only one desire: to feel good, regardless of whether that good feeling comes through obtaining a better job, a new car, a mate, or successful children. When you begin to feel spirituality, it changes your scale of desire. You may begin to see that some desires have become more important and others have become less so. You begin to weigh your life not according to what you see and know in this world, what your physical body sees right now, but according to a much broader scale.
