This is an excerpt from a facebook group where the topic came up “Where are we on the tree?”
I think very few people can [cross the abyss]. I think in our present age we hang out in Da’at. We have literally all the knowledge in the world at our fingertips but we have absolutely zero wisdom. In some ways we live in a bizarre universe where we have to first work back down the tree through kindness and severity and so on until we stop simply knowing about these things – passively observing them – and actually experiencing them. Once we understand those, we can finally enter malkuth and literally go outside and understand nature. The problem is we think we know everything and it makes us prone to extremism. Eventually we can sort of enter kether but most of us won’t ever have perfect understanding and wisdom.
What do you think?
