Turn on the TV, go to a news website, or read any newspaper at this time of year and you will be sure to find some beautiful stories of sharing, hope, and love. On both a small and a large scale, people have helped other people during this holiday season. This is the time of year when we go out of our way to give and to be a part of something bigger than ourselves, which is a great energy—an energy that creates miracles. But according to the kabbalists, it’s not enough to have this consciousness once a year during the holidays. It is comfortable to share at this time because ‘tis the season to do so. But what happens now that the holidays have passed and we all go back to work? It is so easy to fall back into our routines: thinking about what we want, what we need. But if we really want to bring about an evolution in the world, if we really want to make a difference, then we have to look for ways to share our energy so that we can improve the lives of others. Most religions and... Read More

Many of us know the story of Joseph from the Bible, either because we have read it or because we have seen one of the numerous plays or movies made about it. It is a story of a man who overcame all sorts of challenges—from being abandoned by his family to being imprisoned, tempted into negativity, and losing everything he had (although he did gain it all back and more). Though he started at the bottom during his time in Egypt, everywhere he went, he rose to the top like oil. In fact, he went from being a servant in the house of Potiphar and then wrongfully imprisoned to eventually become the most powerful man in Egypt, second only to the king. We can call it coincidence, but if we read Joseph’s story carefully, we realize that the reason he was successful was because he never lost sight of the spirituality that was inside him. He had the strength and certainty to say, “I know that wherever I am, there is a reason for my being there.” This consciousness allowed him to find the Light in... Read More

In this week’s Bible reading, Jacob travels from the most powerfully positive land of Israel to a most negative land called Haran. We know that the journey was long and difficult and that there were many obstacles along the way. But according to the kabbalists, Jacob needed to go through this process to be able to reach his potential. In other words, to complete both his physical and spiritual work, he had to leave Israel and go into negativity. On the road of our life, we don’t often anticipate that sometimes, like Jacob, our process needs to have complications—things that get in our way. But why must it be this way? Because essentially, the more difficult the process, the more capable the individual, the stronger the Vessel, and the higher the individual can climb on the ladder of spirituality. Each and every one of us has been put in the exact right situation to become the brightest light possible. Every difficulty we experience is an opportunity for us to climb the next rung. But...

Kabbalah is the best gift I have had this year. But it did not come easy. It is a result of a lot of hard, focused, and disciplined work my teacher guided me through. Often I had to go out of my comfort zone to apply the tools. But the satisfaction and confidence I now feel is indescribable.

Now I look back and question what exactly I did and how I managed without these teachings in my life.
