I don’t often talk about spirituality – at least not my path specifically and not in this blog. It’s a topic that I reserve for when Kiki and I communicate privately. But maybe the time has come to put it out there – a bit.
Some of you may know that I study Kabbalah. Yes – that of Madonna and Demi, of iconic red strings and “mysticism”. Whatever your perception of Kabbalah, I hope the following sets a few things straight so you at least get a clearer picture of what it’s really about. You know, from someone on the inside… ;p
Kabbalah is a spiritual teaching, spiritual information, spiritual tools – all of which can be learned and applied no matter what faith you were raised in. I was and am Catholic. Perhaps not the most devout one in my pew but I’m in mass every Sunday, all my children have been baptized and my eldest will soon be preparing to receive Holy Communion.
Back to Kabbalah in a teeny tiny nutshell.
Kabbalistic wisdom simply contains all the secrets of the universe!
(So I thank you for understanding that a comprehensive description is beyond the scope of this humble post).
Basically, Kabbalistic principles teach the laws of cause and effect in the spiritual realm. So if I act selfishly, I create a negative energy which will come back to me as “bad luck” at some point in my life – maybe 5 minutes, maybe 5 years. It teaches us that only through sharing and overcoming self interest, do we find lasting fulfillment. It also imparts that your spiritual muscle is like a physical muscle. You need to give it a constant work out or challenge to see any results.
OK, OK, I know… That’s not exactly earth shattering stuff. You’ve heard this before somewhere.
So what makes Kabbalah different?
What drew me to to this wisdom that is thousands of years old and why do I continue to study it?
First, the tools work. They just do.
(Ask any student how simple yet life altering they are).
Second, having a teacher.
Spiritual paths are never meant to be walked alone. Alone, there are things you would never see or realize on your own. A teacher – someone who truly uses Kabbalistic tools, lives by the wisdom and has no agenda aside from helping your soul fulfill its purpose – is the person you want to have with you on this long trek. She won’t always tell you what you want to hear. She won’t mince words when you are wrong. She’ll push you to do uncomfortable things. But she will help you grow, if you have the desire to do so.
People have asked, But isn’t that like having a life coach… or seeing a shrink?
I don’t know! I’ve never had a life coach or seen a shrink! Hahahaha
Others have said, That sounds nice but my life’s just fine the way it is.
Uh… OK. Good for you!
If you feel like something’s missing, that there must be more to life…
If you’re trying to understand why situations and relationships are they way they are…
If you’re seeing too much randomness…
If you wonder why things never change and patterns keep repeating…
You can find the answers.
Fortunately, with great thanks to the internet and a some very determined souls, Kabbalah is available in the Philippines! In fact, Kabbalah Philippines will soon be opening another beginners’ course called the Living Kabbalah System Level 1 (LKS1) starting August 18th. The course will run for eight consecutive Thursday nights from 7pm- 830pm in Ortigas, Pasig.
The course materials (above) which include 23 audio CDs, a workbook and red string + 8 classes + 1 on 1 consultations with a teacher = P9,500.
Alternatively, the cheaper option is to download the 23 audio files and a soft copy of the workbook. Downloads + 8 classes + 1 on 1 consultations with a teacher = P7,200.
You can email email@example.com or text/call 0920.902.9008 to book a slot in the class.
Remember, to have have something you’ve never had before, you need to do something you’ve never done before.
Shall we walk?
Success is a funny thing. When we have it, we like to credit ourselves for a job well done. (Even if just in our own thoughts, we deserve a hearty mental pat on the back). When it eludes us, it’s easy to blame the external – bad luck, stupid boss, I was cheated.
But ALL successes and all failures are ours. We need to OWN them both. What leads us to one or the other, is where we are spiritually. Where our consciousness lies. How do we know then, what consciousness we should strive for? I’m not sure!
But I know I’ll have a better idea after a talk I’m attending on Wednesday Nov. 17th.
So many people in the past few months have been asking me about Kabbalah. And it’s been a while since Kabbalah Philippines held an “Introduction To Kabbalah” lecture — but the wait is over.
On July 22, 2009 (Wednesday) at 7pm in the U-View Theater, Fully Booked, Bonifacio High Street, Taguig, the secrets to lasting fulfillment and happiness will be revealed.
That may sound hokey but as you know, Kiki, the secrets to lasting happiness are insanely simple. There are so many people out there trying to make sense of their lives. I truly hope that they find their way to Kabbalah and this lecture we’re preparing for. There is so much Light to be revealed in the Philippines.
