people are naturally intellectuals. Others are naturally intuitive.
Both ways of looking at the world are correct. Yet, seldom do the
intellectuals understand or respect the intuitives. Being that the
intellectuals cannot understand a thing with their intellect, they
dismiss the thing out of hand, and dismiss all others who are not of
their unique personality design. This is prejudice, foolishness and the
arrogance of intellect.
Spirit rises above intellect as the
Heavens rise above the earth. The intuitive soul is a spiritual soul,
who can explore the inner space of the mind with even greater ease than
the intellectual can explore external natural science. The intuitive
can learn by an entirely different set of rules than that of the
The intuitive can learn about life and
the universe from the ever-flowing wellsprings of wisdom that arises
from within the depths of ones being. For at the very depths of one’s
being is the place where we touch Heaven. Deep within, beyond the realm
and reaching of intellect does the soul receive the wisdom of Heaven,
knowledge of the universe and experience the Divine.
The intellectual can never know this.
His own personal outlook on life is what limits him. Intellect serves a
vital role; it has its essential place. However, this place is not the
place of the spirit. For where the spirit resides the intellect can
This is just the natural order of things
as ordained by Heaven. It explains so many things. It shows us how
those looking outside at the world have such a hard time looking
within. It explains why the intellectual shows distain for the
intuitive. For the intellectual is accustomed to go out, grab and take
for himself. He does not know how to just sit back and wait to receive
from the inner wellsprings of knowledge.
As such, the intellectual is a taker,
but not a receiver. Being that he has never received; his intellect
teaches him to reject the concept of reception, because it makes no
sense to him. How unfortunate for the intellectual, he grows to such
heights only to be completely limited and surrounded by that which he
can never understand through intellect. Yet, in order to become
intuitive would require a change of personality that only a very few are
even capable of making.
Do not concern yourself that things are
this way. They are so for a reason. Ours is not to question why, ours
is but to accept the Way of Heaven and to flow with it. Seek not to
change the world, seek only to change yourselves, to be who you truly
are. If you are an intellectual, stay that way. Take your hand away
from the pursuit of inner intuitive wisdom; it is not your portion in
On the other hand, if you are an
intuitive, stop trying to understand intuition, for intuition does not
and will never fit into the mold of making perfect rational sense within
the intellect. Be who you are, and be not who you are not.
Understand now, I have revealed to you why some people excel in the
study of Kabbalah and why some people never will; and why some people
detest Kabbalah study and cast it off and dismiss its vital importance.
Heed me now, if you have a Kabbalistic soul, pay no attention to those
who dismiss you or your pursuits. Respect them for who they are and
recognize their limitations. Let them serve Heaven as they are supposed
to, while you pursue your goals in life to be who you must be, made in
the Image of Heaven, not molded in the image of the intellectuals.
