Approximately, 29 - 30 years ago I used to attend classes in what later became known as, "The Kabbalah Centre". I remember a very special lady named Chaya who worked there.
She told me a story that really resonated. Once someone asked her to teach "Practical Kabbalah", i.e. Kabbalah's parallel to sorcery. She responded, "Study the 'Code of Jewish Law'. It's all 'Practical Kabbalah! "
What she meant was that by living according to the Torah one creates the "vessels" designed to receive those wonderful "lights" Kabbalah teaches us about; as well as all the blessings in life that they bring along.
