Leaving The Comfort Zone

In Hebrew, the word Noach (Noah), means “to be comfortable.” This should already tell us a little bit about the energy that exists in the cosmos this week, and how we can grow spiritually from it. We read in the Torah, “The earth was also corrupt before God, and the earth was full of violence....

The Road To A New Beginning

A new beginning. How do you feel when you read those three words? What does it bring to mind? A clean slate, perhaps. A chance to make things different. A new and improved version of ourselves, our lives, and maybe even our world. That is precisely the possibility that this week affords us. This 7-day...

Going Forward

Sometimes going forward actually means going inward, asking ourselves: What am I doing, and why am I doing it? Am I improving the lives of others? Am I improving my own life? Is what I am doing each day making the world a better place? By taking the time out of our busy lives to...

Living With Conciousness

Those of us who have been studying Kabbalah have probably heard the statement that consciousness is all there is. Yet, there are so many times in our lives that we live robotically. When we go to work each day, do we do it just to make a living, or do we think about how we...

The Light In Our Challenges

We all make mistakes. We all do things perhaps that we shouldn’t, and we act in ways that perhaps we wish we had not. But that’s part of life, that’s part of being involved in something that’s very real. Life is full of all kinds of pitfalls and negativities and things that can get us...

Sometimes we think that just because we may have transformed a few negative traits in ourselves, certain things should manifest in our lives and when they don’t we get upset or disappointed. But the question I would challenge you with in response to this is: “How do you know it shouldn’t have been worse? How...

Real Change

Real Change

It is great to come to a spiritual class and to learn, but that’s not the thing that is going to change people or yourself. The only true thing that helps manifest change in your life, or in anybody’s life, is taking the tools and converting them into action; transforming that Desire to Receive for...

Step Up and Pass Your Test

Each and every one of us has a certain amount of tests to pass over the course of this lifetime. Whenever we reach the point that we accomplish whatever we need to accomplish at a specific level, then we move on to the next level and the next test, gaining access to a higher level...

Gathering the Nourishment We Need to Move Forward

One of the most powerful things we can remind ourselves of every day is this: “Whatever place I am at is where I must be to take the nourishment I need so that I can become a better person in the future.” The things that the Light gives us to learn from—the curves and bumps...
