The kabbalists teach our purpose in this world is to transform from a selfish being into a being of sharing. We do this inch by inch, and layer by layer, removing one aspect of our negativity after another to reveal the truth of our soul’s sharing nature.
Sometimes students ask me, “How do I know if I’ve truly transformed?”
We don’t always control the external circumstances of our lives – sometimes something happens unexpectedly.
The one thing we can control is whether or not we choose to react to it.
When we react, we check out. We’re no longer the one in charge of ourselves. We become the effect of whatever it is we are reacting to.
It takes a great deal of discipline to remain calm and steadfast in our certainty that everything is for the best, but the more we practice it, the greater we grow our peace within.
There is nothing – and that means nothing – that is happening or will ever happen in your life, that is not sent by the universe for your ultimate benefit. The blessings are here for us to share and enjoy, and the hardships are to help us grow so we can receive even more great things.
You can be consistently excited about everything in your life when you know it’s all leading you to a possibility of fulfillment you can’t even begin to fathom.
From criticism to compliments, we can’t take what others think or do too personally. We can only look closely, learn what we need to grow and move on.
It takes practice, but when we become immune to the approval and actions of others, we can stop living other people’s lives and start being fully present in our own.
Our body has limitations, but our soul is limitless.
The body’s desire is to receive, while the soul’s desire (our true desire) is to share. Letting our soul drive is what puts us in touch with the ability to surpass our limitations.
Through sharing we elevate our consciousness to a place where we can break down the walls in our life, extending ourselves to conquer things we once felt were impossible.
If you want to become limitless, share as much as possible.
We are all connected.
Hard work can help us to earn fulfillment, but there’s a fine line between hard work and fighting for something that maybe isn’t meant to be.
I could spend all day long taking singing and dance lessons, but the likelihood of me appearing on Broadway anytime soon is slim – simply because it isn’t my purpose in this lifetime.
As important as it is to put in the effort, it’s equally important to be able to release all expectations and let the Creator guide you to the life you’re meant to lead.
Kabbalistic astrology dates back to The Book of Formation more than 4000 years ago. The understanding we receive from this source of wisdom reveals that the cosmic energy available to us in the month of Taurus is one of healing, and a return to a state of being complete – a spiritual healing, not limited to the corporeal sense of physical ailments, but a total white-wash of our consciousness.
It doesn’t take much to see that talent and innate ability have little to do with success in this world. Some of the greatest writers never make it to the bestseller list, while some of the most talented singers continue to go unsung. One athlete born with incredible skills might never make it to the pros.
The difference between those who enjoy success in their field and the rest of us is: Desire.
There are many things we can do that bring us blessings—from doing good deeds for others to investing time in spiritual study. And hopefully, if we are all on a spiritual path, we are doing these things daily. Sometimes, however, we may spend several hours a week devoted to good things and still we don’t see the blessings manifest as much as we would like.
It’s good to ask in times like these: What am I doing that is blocking the Light?
