A Little Secret to Financial Success (and Other Interesting Facts)

A Little Secret to Financial Success, and More...Questions I received on Jesus, the Pyramids, organ donations, and lucky pendants:

Question: Does Kabbalah say anything about Jesus?

My Answer: No. Kabbalah speaks only about the correction of the soul and the revelation of the Creator. It bears no relation to any religion.

Question: What do the ancient pyramids represent in our world?

My Answer: Man’s belief in a bodily, material afterlife.

Question: According to Kabbalah, is it permissible to donate human organs?

My Answer: Yes.

Question: Someone gave me a pendant called “the key to financial success.” It is a silver key with some Aramaic words inscribed on it. The problem is that I accidentally broke it! I don’t know if there is a connection, but ever since it broke, I started having financial problems. Is there a connection between these two events? And what should I do with the broken pendant?

My Answer: Fix it! Faith in the “lucky pendant” works. (Although I also heard that what works best is to catch a banker and eat his liver raw at midnight on a full moon. Then his bank account will immediately and secretly be transferred to yours.)

What Will Fashion be Like at the End of Correction?

What Will Fashion be Like in the End of Correction?A question I received: In your opinion, what will be general attitude towards fashion in a corrected world? Will people care about their appearance? Will we be wearing clothes for as long as we exist in bodies, or will we eventually stop wearing them?

My Answer: If it were up to me, I’d wear pajamas all the time. They’re so comfortable!

The chorus of a Russian song about fashion and relativity goes a little something like this:

I dressed myself according to the latest fashions,
You’d say: “That’s a different man altogether!”
But I’m always the same.
Everything’s relative!

Kabbalah and Humor

Kabbalah and HumorA question I received: How do Kabbalists feel about humor? Are there any Kabbalistic jokes?

My Answer: In the first year out of the 12 I’ve spent next to Rabash (Kabbalist Baruch Ashlag), I was quite surprised to see how much he loved humor, jokes, wittiness, discoveries, unexpected situations, and unconventional points of view.

Such things are easy for a Kabbalist to relate to, because he always remains young! Why? Because the soul is constantly growing, and a Kabbalist’s spiritual growth makes him feel like a child. Regardless of how it might appear on the outside, a Kabbalist does not become full of himself, but actually becomes simpler than others in this world.

While maintaining a youthful soul, it’s also characteristic for a Kabbalist to undergo a perpetual inner revolution – searching, disagreeing with himself, analyzing, and making decisions above his own self or reason. [Read more →]

A Kabbalistic Joke

Dr. Michael LaitmanA cannibal can’t sleep; he turns in his bed and sighs. His wife pokes him on the side: “Why aren’t you sleeping?” The cannibal sighs: “A question is bothering me: ‘What is the meaning of life?‘ His wife responds, reproachfully: “I told you, old fool, don’t eat Kabbalists!”
