The Nature of the Unknowable

There are different ways in which people do not know things. Some of the unknown may become known through research; however, some things are mysterious and understanding their nature has remained a daunting task. The existence and nature of afterlife are for me to comprehend or understand. Different views have been presented on the issue of the afterlife and whether the attainment of eternal life is possible. Despite the controversy regarding the issue, I still believe in life after death. However, I am not sure of whether the assertions put forth by various religions are fully factual.

Zohar and the Reading of Torah

Zohar refers to a collection of books as well as commentary literature on the mystery on the various aspects of Torah. The books in the collection present a discussion on the origin, structure, and nature of God. The interpretation of cosmology and mysticism is also presented collection (Jacobs 321). The Zohar also discusses the relationships between man and man as well as the involvement of people in according maximum respect to the supreme supernatural being.

 To those who fail to attain the highest level of spiritual wholeness, Zohar is read and interpreted depending on the situation and context presented. Torah and Zohar are not simply books but a guide on godly living. However, it is more than a set of instructions on how to behave. According to Jacobs, Kabbalah offers an opportunity for humans to see themselves within the cosmic context (328). The mystic nature of sacred texts is only appropriate because one’s spiritual being is intimately interconnected with their earthly existence. Character growth depends on mystical contemplation, and true fairness stems from inner holiness.
