The hierarchy of needs as described by Maslow has become accepted as the simplest explanation of human behavior. We understand that our basic need must be met; we must have air, food and drink, safe shelter, loving sex and sound sleep. Only then, can one move forward to realize unique potential.
Throughout history, seekers of personal growth had to be deeply motivated to go beyond the scope of basic needs to access higher levels in life. Turning to teachings of thought itself fine-tuned expanding minds. One such teaching that has found worldwide acceptance is the Kabbalah.
Originating in ancient Judaism, Kabbalah is a now a true world religion. In an attempt to define the nature of the universe, Kabbalah embraces many schools of religions and esoteric disciplines such as: Christian; New Age; Occultism and Astrology as a way of following the order of the cosmos and finding our place in it.
Awareness of ego, learning to listen to the voice inside and becoming conscious of our choices, helps to balance the positives and negatives. Utilizing Spiritual Laws such as the Golden Rule, “We reap what we sow.” and “All people are One.” Kabbalah teaches us that each human being has within them a spark of the Creator and, as such, can create miracles. Reaching beyond a comfort zone for the sake of others links us into a spiritual dimension that brings light and positivity.
In the heart of Los Angeles, California is the world headquarters of spiritual study called the Kabbalah Centre. Here they believe that Kabbalah can be studied by anyone as a universal wisdom regardless of their previous faith.
Founded in 1922, by Ravi Yehuda Ashlag, the Centre provides Kabbalistic ideas, combining ancient wisdom with clear practical tools to help each student reach a higher level of existence. Besides a growing on-line community, the Kabbalah Centre now spans the globe with facilities in more than 40 cities.
