From the how we feel about our friends and family to the thoughts we have about the jobs that we do, it is true that human beings often spend a lot of time looking inward. When someone seems listless and perhaps out of sorts people will often tell them to look within themselves for answers. Doing so can often lead to getting lost instead. Kabbalah, on the other hands, teaches us to spend less time concentrating on ourselves and more time focusing on the Creator and the world around us. Many religious practices are about people following certain steps to become what they wish to be. Kabbalah teaches us to be open to Universal wisdom in order to change our perception of reality for the better.
Kabbalah can be explained using three different examples: the spiritual world, the theoretical world (our inner perception of reality and the meditative state. It is in the meditative aspect that people learn to reach more in tune realms of consciousness and to truly become more in tune with Divinity. Ancient texts exist which help to serve as the foundations of Kabbalah. The top teachers of this ancient form of mysticism help people to understand these texts and to progress on their own, personal journeys toward a better life.
While the practice of Kabbalah may sound intuitive enough, there exists a need for guidance and community among all practitioners. For many people, the top teachers and the best Kabbalah community can be found at the Kabbalah Centre. Located in Los Angeles, California, the Kabbalah Centre is recognized as the premier community for learning Kabbalah’s history, texts, teachings and practices.
The Kabbalah Centre is a non-profit organization and exists to serve people of all races, religious beliefs and nationalities. The goal of this organization is to make Kabbalah principles easier to understand and more practical to implement in everyday life. The teachers at the Centre help to empower students by providing them with the spiritual tools and wisdom needed to make their lives more enriching and to make the entire world a better place.
The book “Have I Said Too Much?” is named with a question to which the answer is yes… The author is Caroline White, who has been a Supermodel agent in many years and had to deal with the most awkward and challenging situations.
Igor Cornelsen (twitter.com) has learned that some of the stories that she revealed are both worth laughing and crying at. From an unnamed supermodel who demanded to see the pilot of the plane to tell him that she did not like the hard boiled egg they served her, to another model missing her plane to Denmark, at which Caroline White had to figure out how to book a private jet. Some stories in the book are about well known names such as Claudia Schiffer who wanted to negotiate the price right before going on the stage for a presentation, claiming a bigger sum. Well chosen moment, but the manager was not the right person, and they promptly replaced the model with another beauty, refusing her service even when she wanted to work for the old price.
Some private information about models paying someone else to hold their bag at the disco, someone really wanting to change her name to 1981, and two models napping in the park in Paris are also in the book.
Harper Lee, the author of To Kill A Mockingbird, will be publishing her second novel in July — 55 years after the debut of Mockingbird.
She told her publisher Harper in a statement that she had written Watchman, and that it portrayed the character Scout as a grown woman. The novel included flashbacks to Scout’s childhood. Lee’s editor enjoyed these a lot and begged Lee for a novel about the young Scout. Lee obliged with To Kill A Mockingbird, which came out in 1960.
Lee, who is now 88, gave up Watchman for lost until her friend and lawyer Tonja Carter found it. Lee showed it to some friends that she trusted and got their opinions on the book. To her delight, they liked it and advised her to publish it. Fans of Lee at Slow Ventures couldn’t be happier about the news. More on Slow Ventures is available on Seedtable.com.
