The word spirituality has many understandings and meanings for people. A kabbalistic understanding of spirituality draws our attention to the idea of activating the ‘creator nature’ that exists within each human being to overcome our ego and achieve our potential. By elevating our consciousness and emulating the characteristics of the Creator we can avoid chaos and live lives of lasting fulfillment. For the reader, the title of this story will certainly seem confusing. What connection does spirituality have with chaos? Does this relationship indicate that if an individual is spiritual, then he or she can assume their lives will be free of the pain and suffering that accompany chaos? Unfortunately, the reality of existence does not bear out this supposition. Chaos appears to strike indiscriminately, without regard to people's spiritual status. So what I would like to address is the concept of spirituality itself. To some, one on a spiritual path is seeking out the meaning of life or... Read More
Following my previous article on immortality, the response from our readers was very mixed. It ran the gamut, from the expression of great expectations to a complete rejection of any notion that immortality is a possibility or that it is at all viable. Some people made objections on economic grounds. Present retirees, they said, were having enough difficulties sustaining themselves in old age without having to take into consideration the financial resources needed to meet the expenses of any serious or major medical disaster that over a long stretch would assuredly take place. Furthermore, pointed out readers, with the economic uncertainty and extreme volatility that has broken out in the financial markets, the chances that an individual could realistically plan for and establish financial stability are slim. In addition, government assistance programs for retired people are quickly disappearing. So, what advantage can humankind expect to attain in never-ending life? Stated others, if... Read More
Immortality, a possibility that has been dismissed by most and rejected by many, as though the memory of it were a curse inflicted on mankind since the sin of Adam some 5,700 years ago, is a topic up until now kept mostly in the closet. Our rational minds merely obscure the unconscious reply, “Why?” What could be so wrong with immortality, especially when death is the most feared chaos that strikes mankind? Needless to say, death, or the fear of it, strikes an awesome chord in the hearts of most people. Immortality, or the thought of living forever, is indeed a dream that is pleasant to the minds of most humans. However, the fact that death has not gone out of style or favor – along with the cemeteries that abound around the world – is a stark reminder that death is very much a part of the human landscape. Our consciousness never has the opportunity to begin to think otherwise, or, for that matter, to think that there is anything humankind can do to change such an entrenched reality... Read More

In the midst of such chaos in my life, I have been able to find peace through studying Kabbalah. Without any doubts whatsoever, I would highly recommend anyone to call. I am so thankful for The Kabbalah Centre, because it has made all the difference in my spiritual growth and development.

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.
