The Power of The Kabbalah
This post marks the first post in a series of 12, each post will distill the essential wisdom from the principles of the Kabbalah. Kabbalah is a discipline and school of thought that reveals the mystical aspect of Judaism. The purpose is to explain the inseparable relationship of the unknowable infinite creator, with the mortal human being. It is a set of esoteric teachings that gives an individual a deep understanding of god.
Kabbalah teaches that God is neither matter nor spirit, but is the creator of both. Kabbalah has many practical applications, allowing one to practice the wisdom and experience the evidence from the perspective of the observer. It gives you the wisdom of discovering the light in yourself and everything around you.
Principle 1: Don’t believe a word you read. Test drive the lessons learned.
Your inner being consisting of your immaterial spiritual soul is here on this earth to experience the material world. We are spiritual beings having a physical experience. The material world is a world of action, in order to take action that is spiritual in nature you need to develop trust in your self. Trust has to be experienced, it is something you simply just can’t read about, and accept logically. To only accept something based purely on theory and logic is your beliefs. Beliefs are given to you and conditioned by society.
With anything you learn in life learn to only accept it hypothetically until you have a direct experience. You truly don’t know something until you have experienced it for your self. Remember that you experience this life from the perspective of the observer; ultimately the meaning you give to anything comes from the observer. Never accept anything as truth until you have or create an experience to either affirm or deny it.
So that is lesson one, with the remainder of the series don’t believe anything I tell you. Take it in, contemplate it, than apply to your life and see if there is any truth or value in it for you. Remember that whatever I say is my own interpretation from my own experiences.
