All of creation is a desire to enjoy. What causes pleasure is defined as sweet and what causes pain is experienced as bitter. People feel pleasure when they attain food, sex, family, money, honor, and knowledge. Kabbalists, however, know that true pleasure lies in giving to others and they direct their desire to enjoy in this way. The wisdom of Kabbalah teaches us how to get out of the old perception of sweetness and move onto a new one so that we can see the upper world.
