Kabbalah is something that no student can go into half-heartedly. You get out what you put into it. There are two types of students at the Kabbalah Center in Los Angeles. There are those who only study on a short-term basis. These are the people who come in and learn a few things and then leave. The other kind is part of the 99%. These are the students who get it and want to work to improve their lives.
There are 5 basic principles being taught at the center. In order to fully embrace these principles, you do need to be part of the 99%.
The first principle involves The upper force and our ego. We are right now living through our egotistical personality. The upper force of the universe involves who we truly are. It is our job to transform our egos until we are one with the upper world.
The second principle involves identifying our destructive natures. It is up to use to identify and get rid of our ego. This way we can truly be the person we are meant to be. The third principle involves correcting what needs to be corrected inside our souls. We were at one time all one. Our souls were shattered into a million pieces. It is up to us to identify the parts that need correcting, this way our souls can become one and unify once more.
The fourth and fifth principles involve choosing the path of creation. Choosing something that is beyond what this physical world has to offer and not being bound by our egos.
The Kabbalah Center in Los Angeles teaches that some souls take a long time to reach this more unified and evolved state. Others can come to it rather quickly. It all depends on how soon you identify what needs to be corrected. It also depends on how long you intend to let your ego control you. The ego is not really who we are. It is who we have chosen to be in our society, due to societal demands and pressure. There is a difference.
At some points, you have to ask yourself, “Am I walking the dog, or is the dog walking me?”
