Real Authentic Kabbalah by Rabbi Raphael Afilalo
I believe that most yearn to serve at their best the Creator, but have been accustomed to execute and not seek further, or were kept away from this knowledge. It is now the time to know and learn this magnificent science.
Rabbi Raphael Afilalo’s research and publications have predominantly been in the area of Jewish mysticism and Kabbalah. He has been teaching and lecturing internationally about the Zohar and Kabbalah.
The Kabbalah is the mystical and esoteric explanation of the Torah. It teaches the unfolding of the worlds, the will of the Creator, the various ways of guidance of these worlds, the role of man in the creation, and more. No other writings explain in details; the creation of this world and the ones above it, the energies that influence its guidance, nor the final goal of everything. These writings are based on ancient Jewish texts and mostly on the Zohar.
The Kabbalah teaches us that the world is guided by an extremely complex system of forces or energies, which through their interactions provoke chain reactions that impact directly on man and the worlds. Each one of these reactions has numerous ramifications, with many details and results. It explains to us the true guidance of the world, so that we may understand the will of God. How and why He created the world, in what way He governs it, the provenance of the souls and angels, the reasons for the dualism of reward and punishment, etc.
Other writings explain in details “how” to do, but the Zohar and Kabbalah explain the exact reasons, and effects of all our prayers and actions.
