Any of you gays, Kabbalists?
In particular I think you would like "The Zohar". It's a very sensual, seductive type book, not to mention, intriguing. It pretty much turns the Bible on its head.
Excerpt from the Zohar:
[quote]"By arousal below, similarly there is arousal above...male and female unite tdesire prevails. Worlds are blessed, and above and below are in joy."
The symbolism is great in the Zohar, mainly as a deliberate means to keep the book for the elite only, which, come on, we know most of you gays are part of the elite.
P.S. If you are a trailer trash gay, this thread is not for you.

OP, I think you should investigate the Bahai faith, it seems like it would be up your alley, and its world headquarters is in Haifa, too.

Stay away from the kabbalah centre - it's an evil cult

It combines the fun part of Judaism with magic.

It's the religion of the occult elite, who engage in mediatised mega-rituals, occult secret societies, mind control, high-tech monitoring "Technology of the soul" and so forth.
They believe the world only exists because God needed somebody to relate to, implying God had some kind of need for love, for relationship, etc. The first act was not creation, but withdraw. God withdrew in all directions from one central point, creating empty space or a vacuum, an empty space within God. The emptiness gave God room to create the world.
However, this is the key part that explains much of what is going on today.
He placed vessels in the void and began to fill them with divine light . In the process he shattered several of the vessels tying together DESTRUCTION and creativity You can't have creativity without destruction at the same time.
That's the reason the elite can destroy without guilt...it's all a part of the creative process. Here's the thing, they very seldom destroy themselves, only the non-elite.

R6, I thought that Kabbala study was originally only for men over 40, facing the "end of life" or post mid-life crises (men generally died earlier in those days,) and considering the meaning of life and the possibility of reincarnation or another existence.

No, R8. Where do you get your infor/

I think it's rather the opposite. The astrology, laws of attraction, Kabbalah threads seem overrun with mouth breathers yelling "if you want to talk about facts, fuck off to another thread."

"God withdrew in all directions from one central point, creating empty space or a vacuum, an empty space within God. The emptiness gave God room to create the world."
If God is omnipotent, why does it need to create space to make a world? God could do whatever it wants, giving that it is supposedly all-powerful.

Years ago, when I was having a personal crisis--I had just shattered a Precious Moments figurine, 'Happiness Is. . .a Jar of Vaseline and a Hot Sugar Daddy'--I went in search of spiritual enlightenment.
I didn't find it at The Kaballah Centre, though they do have a nifty bookstore and the most unintentionally funny Saturday services. Dress in white and go some day. It's a fucking rush seeing all the goofballs reach out for the Zohar or some mystical Jewish scroll thing as the alleged rabbi walks it down the center aisle.

R9, Current celebrity money fueled "Kabbala" is a total bastardization of what real, true Kabbala, and an extreme insult to those that study and discuss how old-time beliefs affect our modern day life. I will try to find links for you to back up this well known fact. In the mean time understand that traditionally Jews who could afford a life of study, rather than providing for their families via a trade, or were elderly, were the ones discussing the Bible and how its' lessons applied to current life. They also led the services which brought the entire community together for mutual support. It wasn't about getting others' scarce money or resources.

I love how no Kabbalist has answered R11's very pertinent question.
|by Madonna||reply 14||01/01/2013|
I don't know much about this topic. I have seen some men who I believe were gay, wearing white string bracelets and/or necklace, almost signifying a connection of some sort. Would that be part of Kabballah?
|by Madonna||reply 15||01/01/2013|
No, R15. As R8 has pointed out, those red-string wearers are part of a commercial (and allegedly criminal) enterprise that has taken the name. Science is to Scientology what the genuine mystical belief system is to the Kabballah Center.

R16, Thank you. The very existence of "Kabballah water" should clue everyone in to what many religious teachers and Rabbis already know. Continuous study and learning is very valued in Judiasm, and is/was what the wealthy aspired to be able to do, free from the need to support one's family. The idea that celebs should be given special treatment and a watered-down version of an ancient philosophical view of the world in exchange for large sums of money is anathema to many in the Jewish community.
