Financial Forecasting Will Not Solve The Crisis

financial-crisis-causes-spike-in-anti-semitismIn the News (from The Financial Times):How science can prevent the next bubble” There have been many calls for building a financial forecasting service. The proposal is to set up an independent agency, making full use of the internet and grid computing to provide enough warning when the next financial storm is brewing. We need to dig deeper and track the complexity of interactions in financial markets by collecting and analyzing the tick-by-tick data that markets spew out. This will offer an early warning of dangerous misalignments between prices and risk premiums.

My Comment: People still do not understand that the root of the crisis is our incorrect, individualistic, egoistic behavior in a world that’s global, integral, unified and completely interdependent. It won’t help us to have more knowledge about what is happening, because it is we who must become equivalent to the world in which we live.

The world began to be what it is today nearly a hundred years ago. In fact, 70 years ago Baal HaSulam wrote that humanity had already become one family. Today, just like we teach our children how to live in this world, we too have to learn how to live in the new conditions of total interdependence with each other.

For The First Time In History, We Have The Conditions To Realize Our Freedom Of Will

freedomA question I received: If there is none else besides Him, and we are all controlled like robots, how can we criticize anything in this world, the way you do? How can you say people should be doing this instead of that, if all is done by the Creator?

My Answer: A developmental force – the Light – descends from the Creator and continuously awakens new Reshimot – egoistic desires in a person. If a person doesn’t correct them, they “pile up,” bringing the person and the society to a crisis.

The only free act available to a person is to correct the Reshimot with the help of the right environment. A person is a robot in every other respect. Kabbalah teaches us how to make the only possible free action, which is why Kabbalah is being revealed now, when human society is becoming global and interdependent. Now each person depends on everyone, and everyone depends on each person. Under these conditions, it is now possible to realize our freedom of will. In the past, when humanity did not have this opportunity yet, Kabbalah remained hidden, because Kabbalah is the method for man to reveal the Creator through the quality of love for his neighbor.

First Be A Good Wife And Mother, And Then Study Kabbalah

what-does-a-man-look-for-in-a-womanThree questions I received from women about Kabbalah and relationships:

Question: I started studying Kabbalah online in January, but my husband does not show any interest in starting anytime soon. I understand that every person has to start studying Kabbalah when the time is right for them, and I do have an easy relationship with my husband, for he respects what interests me and I respect him likewise.

Still, I do wish to be with a man whose spiritual desires are compatible with mine. What is the best thing for me to do? Wait for him to get curious and interested in Kabbalah through example? Or even if this doesn’t ever happen, should I just be content with what I have?

My Answer: First and foremost, you have to be a good wife and mother. After that, in your free time, you can study Kabbalah.

Question: I am a woman who is quite new to Kabbalah and I have a question about how I should study Kabbalah together with my boyfriend who was the first of us to discover Kabbalah. I wish for us to have a meaningful relationship with spiritual growth. Can we talk about our experiences in Kabbalah together, or will that be harmful to our spiritual progress? And how can I help him correct his ego? I’ve read your articles about women and Kabbalah, and some about relationships.

My Answer: You can study together. I recommend reading articles on mutual work.

Question: I read that a woman advances together with her husband. But what if I don’t have a husband? What should a single woman over 45 do to meet a Kabbalist? Maybe there is a dating service?

My Answer: Check out our dating site.
