Are you confusing passion for arrogance?
I don't think I'm any better than any of you, I don't think I'm specifically knowledgeable either! On the contrary if anything I know how vast kabbalah is and how whatever I learned or will learn won't even scratch the surface of what's out there...
Im just very passionate about the fact that it's a central role in Yiddishkeit, and that without any knowledge of it's inyanim you truly miss out on a whole dimension of עבודת השם whether it's in your tfilah, understanding of Chumash, or אגדות חזל, and שבת&  מועדים take on new meaning.
But I keep coming across individuals like yourself and EliJelly and I personally got that attitude towards kabbalah when I was in yeshivah as well, and so maybe I came across to harsh, but I don't think it's arrogance, I hope not.
No, I think that you are. You can be passionate about something without being mevatel anyone and everyone else.
