    Why the sudden interest in this in the last 5 - 10 years?

    People can't find the truth, so they just keep floundering around with every new fad.
    That is as long as it gives them a sense of self importance.

    Good question. However, in Judaism itself, Kabbalah, in one form or another, has probably been the mainstream mystical theology since at least the 13th century (and has seeds much, much older); it’s simply come out more publicly, outside the synagogue and the beit midrash.

    In the process, a much more “new-agey”, occultic version also seems to have developed. Which version are you interested in?

    For once, josephw, I am inclined to agree with you. At least in regard to all the johny-come-latelies onto the kabballah scene. But that's only because Christianity has lost all relevance to so many people.

    Where is the line between mysticism and belief if there even is one? For example, do you view life sprining from nonliving matter as being a mystical ideology in some regards?

    No hay nada mystico, pero conocer esto:

    no hay nada que no es la luz, la misma luz;
    y el todo, de que estamos, uno es—uno, sin otro.

    “Luz” está metafórico; es una metáfora de una metáfora, del hebreo or ein sof de la Cábala.
