Welcome to The Kabbalah of You, a journey of discovery, in which we will
ask—and answer—the most fundamental question of all: Who is the mysterious being at the heart of what it is to be … you?
We all know the feelings of sadness and misery and are never content to
rest in them; we seek a good that we experience as good. We are guided
towards the experience of good by the questions we ask in our search. What do we seek? If we seek what we want, our search will yield pleasure, physical delight—powerful, but short-lived, and can lead to self-destructive behavior. If we seek rather what we need, we will find happiness. We will then be satisfied with very little—but we can stagnate and become complacent in that satisfaction. But if we seek what we are, then we will find energizing joy.
