I know that there are many of you that are studying and new in Kabbalah have books and enjoy learning by yourselves Sometimes coming to your own conclusions but I just want to tell you that even the Rav When he first started to learn he learns only because he found his teacher and trust me the Rav is a Leo and he tells me many times that while he was learning with his teacher he came to Israel all proud and proper to sit down and spend hours and hours delving into the TTTT, the Zohar, into the TTTT and he got the... his teacher TTTT Rav Brandwein and Rav Brandwein said to him: - Look we got this books to pack. How about we do it together? He was astonished. "Me? Pack books? I came from so many thousands of miles... to do what!?" It was a lesson and I know that there are those of you here that have seen movies like The Karate Kid with the hands on, hands off. It seems like a lesson in futility but the important message is: Often times when we learn by ourselves we find our ownage. We figure out our own conclusions. The teacher is very important if nothing else then to paint the pathway, to show you that this is the way you go. If without a teacher you learn only by yourselves sometimes you could wind up with the wrong conclusions and not at the teacher... the teacher as a human being has more knowledge, time and years in the subject than you and therefore he is capable of helping you reach your goal and sometimes that goal is maybe to lower the ego a little bit. Yes, pack some books. Yes, learn how to take your coat on and off a hanger. Yes, all the things that seem nothing to do with actual learning. But you know we know that the greatest learning of all is to learn to be a human being with human dignity. The teacher is very very important important because he, even though he may be somebody that has a few years on you or maybe even a few years less. Nonetheless, he has been given through his work, time and study a deeper knowledge into that what you seek and therefore through that It can't be your buddy. He is not going to be your friend. Because once your teacher becomes your friend he looses the edge. So, I hope that for all of you, you respect the person, like using this knowledge respect the one that opens the lights so that the plane can take off. That is your teacher. He is there as your guide. You need to use him for that. You need to learn and respect but undestand that yes, your teacher is very important in the way you see the knowledge so you receive and I hope tonight's class will be very enlightening for you.
