The Torah does not pertain to this world and it is therefore impossible to understand it correctly without discovering the upper world. All of the prohibitions in the Torah are interpretations of the egoistic use of the spiritual world in the language of this world. In reality, the Torah is not restrictive or punishment-oriented. Its purpose is to transform a person to become loving like the upper force. The completion of this correction is called Shabbat, which is the final stage in human development.
