According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, the importance of life is found in the attainment of the purpose or source of life, the upper force. The upper force is a field within which reality exists. We can understand it and feel it when we become like it. We build this connection from inherent data, education, and environmental impact. A person feels that his or her life matters when it matters to the surrounding society. A person goes from an ordinary life to a noble and eternal level of living. One’s whole life becomes a means for reaching this state.
