The Kabbalah Centre Helps Spread Jewish Esoteric Wisdom Across the World

Interest in Jewish mysticism has been steadily growing over the years. Not only are people involved in the New Age getting into the Kabbalah, but also mainstream Hollywood icons are actively practicing sacred teachings of Jewish mysticism. Just a few legends who were known to seek refuge in the Kabbalah in the not too distant past include Elizabeth Taylor, Sammy Davis Jr., and Marilyn Monroe. Today, numerous stars are openly discussing their admiration for the Kabbalah thanks in large part to pop singer Madonna.

Madonna has been very vocal about the influence the Kabbalah has had on her life. In 2006, Madonna told reporters she believes the central teaching of Jewish mysticism is that we are all “put on earth to help people.” She went on to say she believes it is her duty to use her star power to encourage others to enter a Kabbalah Centre and put the teachings of this centuries-old spiritual discipline into practice. After Madonna’s interview, numerous other celebrities told the world about their devotion to the Kabbalah. Just a few of these celebrities include Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, and Sandra Bernhard.

For those who don’t know, Kabbalah literally means “tradition” in Hebrew and it refers to a collection of esoteric texts designed to help initiates commune with the divine. Sometimes referred to as the “Yoga of the West,” the Kabbalah has informed much Western occultism. Today, most people interested in Western Ceremonial Magic, New Age philosophies, and comparative religious studies must understand basic principles in the Kabbalah.

One non-profit organization dedicated to sharing the wisdom of the Kabbalah with the world is the Kabbalah Centre International. Philip S. Berg, an influential American rabbi, founded the Kabbalah Centre in 1984 with the intent of spreading these teachings with as many people as possible. For centuries, the Kabbalah was only taught to Jewish scholars over the age of 40. Philip S. Berg wanted to change all of that with his Kabbalah Centre. Literally anyone can join a Kabbalah Centre and learn all these sacred texts have to offer. Although a basic understanding of Hebrew and Judaism are helpful, they aren’t a prerequisite to join the Kabbalah Centre. Teachers at the Kabbalah Centre are more interested in seeing connections between various other esoteric religious paths and bringing people of various faiths together towards their quest for spiritual liberation.

The Kabbalah Centre is currently headquartered in Los Angeles. There are Kabbalah Centres in various other major cities, such as Rio de Janerio, Buenos Aires, Tel Aviv, Berlin, Milan, New York City, and Warsaw. In addition to teaching people about the sacred Kabbalah, the Kabbalah Centre is heavily involved in helping organizations such as the American Red Cross, Partners in Health, and Habitat for Humanity.

Kabbalah-A Part of Who we Are

There has been a big following after Madonna took an interest to Jewish mysticism. Hollywood stars such as Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, and the late Sammy Davis expressed an interest in the Jewish Kabbalah, even though they were not born Jewish. So what is the reason these celebrities have, to take an interest in this ancient religion? Some of them have found that Kabbalah has helped them to get through hard times. Others, like Sammy Davis, just wanted to become a part of this 5,000 year-old history and to be a part of something that wasn’t just materialistic.

In 1976, the Late Elizabeth Tailor even offered herself in exchange for the 100 Israelis held hostage at the Entebbe Airport. Kabballah influenced her strongly.According to Madonna, a main precept of Kabbalah is that we are on the earth to help others, and that it is our job to find out how and what we can do. For Madonna, it was spreading the word about Kabbalah.

Traditionally, Jews over the age of 40 have been the only students of Kabballah, but according to the late Rabbi Philip Berg, simplifying Kabballah and making it more relevant to the aspects of the modern world has made the struggles that biblical characters had to face, much more accessible.Kabbalah is an ancient wisdom that unveils how life and the universe work. The word “Kabbalah” means “to receive.” Kabbalah is the study of how to receive fulfillment in our lives.

Kabballah is a very ancient paradigm for living and it teaches that all the branches of our lives stem from the same trunk and the same root. It’s really a different way of looking at the world on the journey to find self fulfillment in a world full of technology and distractions, stress, and uncertainty.

Making a significant headway in the fashion industry: Brown Modelling Agency

Making your mark in the fashion industry can be a daunting task but at the same time having a good web of contacts can make all the difference between a successful and unsuccessful transition to the big stage. Most aspiring models don’t have the know-how of putting themselves forward and starting in the industry. This leads to many misinformed decisions on their part, sometimes even costing them their careers. There is a great deal of things one should understand about making a career as a successful model in the fashion industry. This post means to impart knowledge and information to aspiring models to help them carve their future choice of a career in the fashion industry.

  • Finding an agency

Better take a cue and find yourself an agency that deals with your career aspirations. You can start by sending in your “simple” photographs. The emphasis being on simple photos since nobody likes an overtly flaunting wannabe model posing in supermodel poses. Send your simple photos with the ones that showcase your natural face. You can also try and go for open castings of agencies that happen from time to time. Chances are these efforts will pay off better than any other alternative.

  • Presenting yourself

Once you have been highlighted or are called for a potential job, you should remember the need to showcase yourself in a manner of liking. Most aspiring models get it wrong in this stage and end up jeopardizing their chances trying too hard to please. Just let the energy flow in you. Present yourself in a simple manner. Even a simple top paired with jeans will do the job for you. Try not wearing too much make-up. Have clean nails and good hair and wear comfortable nice shoes. Answer your questions confidently and make yourself a part of the conversation and not overdo it. You will strike the chord.

  • Working the camera

You get full marks for being photogenic. It’s about trying to find a character in the role you are to play. The best models are the ones that like their job and take part in the process of shooting. As much as ideas your photographer might have, you should play your part and be creative in what you want to do and find a niche of your own doing that. Once you find your area of comfort, the work becomes child’s play. Some models are great at looking sexy, some are good with their environment and some just look good being serious faced. It’s about finding your forte, sticking to it and adapting to situations.

How Betsy DeVos Got Involved With The Movement For Education

One of the common stories I hear of people who get involved in different movements and initiatives is that there was one incident that has sparked their interest in the movement. However, Betsy DeVos has a somewhat different story which could be at least as common. For Betsy DeVos there was a gradual process that eventually got her to pursue her passion for better education. She details this process in her interviews where she also talks about many other things that she finds important to her career. Her involvement in philanthropy has started out small and slow before she has gotten fully involved in philanthropy.

Dick and Betsy DeVos have gotten started with The Potter’s House Christian School when their children were young. During that time, they have made connections with parents that were living in low income situations but were doing everything they can to make sure their children were safe and getting meaningful education. As she connected with families, her inspiration has grown stronger. For one thing, the schools require the family to pay a tuition fee for student attendance. Both Dick and Betsy have looked on with compassion as the parents made a huge sacrifice in order to make sure that kids are safe.

Dick and Betsy DeVos have decided that they can do something to support the families. This has started with them helping one child. This has eventually progressed to them helping other children. Eventually, Dick and Betsy have decided to do what they can to get funding for private schools so that they can instruct more students without the need for tuition.

Betsy DeVos know all to well the horrors of a low income community. For one thing, the children are not safe in these communities. Also, the schools offer low quality education for these students due to a lack of adequate funds. Therefore, students find themselves at a major disadvantage at the beginning. Dick and Betsy DeVos believe in equality, and they are doing everything they can to achieve this vision for inner city children to have the same opportunities that other children have.
