What you need to know about Kabbalah

Did you know that originally, kabbalah was thought t be so complicated that it could not be taught t anyone else apart from men who were at least 40 years of age? The main aim of these teachings, which have their origins in Judaism, is to try and explain the relationship between the unchanging, eternal and mysterious infinity and the universe as we know it. Most people have the misconception that Kabbalah religion, however, these teachings are not a religion, but are used by many religions.

Origins of Kabbalah

The origin of the teachings was within the Jewish tradition. This is why it is not uncommon to hear Kabbalists making use Jewish sources in their attempts to explain and make sense of esoteric teachings. It is however believed that Kabbalah may have existed even before all other world religions. As a matter of fact, it is believed to have formed the blueprint that formed creationist philosophies, political systems, religions and arts. Currently, the teachings are used by Judaists to try and explain the innermost meanings of the Hebrew bible and other rabbinic teachings.

Why kabbalah is a grossly misunderstood doctrine

This is probably one of the most misunderstood parts of Judaism. The misunderstandings started occurring when Christians, occultists, and mystics started defining the teachings warping them to fit their dogma. Recently, there have been people that try to use the teachings in activities such as tarot card reading, which distorts the true value of the teachings. The fact that celebrities are adopting this magic-like form distortion of the teachings does not make the case any better.

Is Kabbalah a belief in Magic?

Most people think of magic when they hear the word kabbalah. While it is true that the explanations original kabbalah gave about the universe and how it works contain some connection to magic, there is more to the explanations than that. There have been accounts of rabbis that performed acts that could be described as magic in the modern context. For instance, there was an account of one rabbi that created a man (golem) from clay and brought him to life by simply reciting the various names of God. While there may not be any evidence to show that this is no more than a legend, it is great to recognize that not all religions are willing to have faith as deep as the ones that adopt kabbalah related beliefs.

Changing the image of Kabbalah

The many misconceptions about the teachings are perhaps the reason why the true followers, rabbis and devout Judaists are coming up with Kabbalah centers around the world. These are non-profit organizations that provide courses about Zohar and other Kabbalistic teachings. The courses are available both online and through some of the regional centers that the founders have put up around the country. The headquarters of the school are in Los Angeles, California. There are other Kabbalah centers around the world, with another one being located in Europe.

About the founders

The founders kabbalah center are Philip Berg and his wife, Karen Berg. The two opened the center in 1984 and it has been growing ever since. The need to set the record straight about the true nature of the Kabbalistic teachings is what motivated the two to start the center. However, the original American center was founded in 1965 in New York City. This was after the death of the founder of the original center in Israel.

In order to understand the true nature of Kabbalah teachings, it is recommended that one familiarizes themselves with the center. If not able to get there physically, there are online classes that the centers offer. Their aim is to make sure that Kabbalah is used for its intended purpose only.

Doug Levitt Travels By Bus For “The Greyhound Diaries”

Few modern artists have shown such a dedication to the work they are creating as that shown by Doug Levitt to “The Greyhound Diaries”, a project that has been ongoing for more than a decade and has seen the former journalist and broadcaster travel by bus to various parts of the U.S. In recent years, the work conducted for “The Greyhound Diaries” has seen Doug Levitt asked to appear at various iconic locations across the country, including the Woody Guthrie Center and the Kennedy Center for the Arts; the influence of Woody Guthrie and his fellow 1930s artists has been easy to see in the work of Doug Levitt who sees the influence of the federally funded WPA broadcasts of “The Great Depression” as inspiration for his continued dedication to the project.

 

Doug Levitt is a thoroughly modern performer who has looked to many different avenues of media to get across the social points he is looking to make with this work that has a definite folk influence; Levitt has recently created a YouTube channel that is used to display the images and music created for the project. “The Greyhound Diaries” has seen Doug Levitt bring to light many of the stories of real life hardship caused by the 2008 economic slowdown, the effects of which Doug Levitt states are still being felt throughout many financially disaffected areas of the U.S.

 

Outside of the artistic work being created by Doug Levitt, the singer and performer has become a major campaigner for the rights of the disaffected across the U.S., including many homeless groups Levitt performs for when he travels to different areas of the nation. Before becoming involved in “The Greyhound Diaries”, Doug Levitt had been largely unaware of the problems facing members of society who were failing to be supported by many government agencies; born in Washington D.C. economic life was always something ignored by the residents of the U.S. capital who have rarely felt the effects of recession and economic troubles.

Talos Energy and Mexico Strike a Deal for Drilling

Energy has always been big business in Mexico. More specifically, it’s been a monopoly for decades, restricting investment in this economic sector from private and foreign money. So when Talos Energy entered the market it rightly caused a stir in the global energy industry.

In 2015 the Mexican government announced that it was looking at ways to open the country up and invite more private investment. This was when Talos Energy, in partnership with Sierra Oil and Premiere Oil, decided to lobby Mexico’s leadership for first-drilling rights in its waters, challenging a standing policy concerning their energy resources. More than a year in negotiations, and a $16 million agreement later, Mexico eased its policy, in place since 1938, to allow Talos Energy to drill.

The lift of this investment ban has speculators in the energy industry talking. Some are already arguing that it could wind up being the biggest energy news story of the year, not just for what’s happening because of this deal but because of what it can make possible. If Talos Energy is successful in its drilling operation and can form a positive working relationship with the Mexican government, they may be more receptive to letting more players into the country. similarly, other countries that have kept foreign companies away from oil reserves may see this as an opportunity to question existing policies.

Talos Energy an its partners have been drilling in the Zama-1 well, just off the Sureste Basin, since early May of this year. Projections from the company put production at somewhere between 100 and 500 million barrels of crude oil. But they’ll only have 90 days to complete their drilling efforts.

About Talos Energy:

Talos Energy is an oil and gas company in Houston, Texas. Since 2012 Talos Energy has managed shelf and deep-water drilling operations in the Gulf of Mexico.

Talos Energy continues to be a leader in offshore exploration, developing efforts to discover wells in unexplored waters. This intrepid business model has attracted new technologies and innovative methods in energy production. Becoming a leader in the energy industry has allowed Talos Energy to become a leader in oil and a welcome partner to many international economies.

Beneful Healthy Food Commercials

The first commercial I watched was for Beneful healthy smile snacks. The owner gets really close to his dogs face and it looks like he’s inspecting the dogs food teeth as well as smelling his breathe. The narrator starts talking about how there is a new way to keep a dogs mouth clean. The dog looks really interested by what the narrator is saying. The camera then zooms in on packages of the healthy smile snacks. The man describes how the treats are ment to keep the dogs breathe fresh while also working as a reward at the same time.

The second commercial features Beneful healthy weight Beneful dry dog food. The owner is talking to his dog about how he is the one left with live handles while the dog is in great shape. He also talks about how great the healthy food taste. The ingredients fall down in front of the screen and the food is described as healthy wholesome and all natural. Some of those ingredients include vegetables and real chicken. The video then shows the owner running on a treadmill and doing push-ups while the dog sits idly by. The dog doesn’t have to workout at all because the food is already doing all the work.

Governments and Scientists have an important role in improving lives

Scientists in India are developing new ways that allow citizens to gather information and upload it to the cloud to push stakeholders such as the government and corporations toward change. Dr. Clay Siegall, a scientist, shared an interesting article about it written by a reporter from India. Unlike writing letters or sending tweet pictures, this is a more active role to ensure that the government provides safe drinking water to all citizens in India by 2030. It also makes it easier for citizens to advocate for better environmental laws and for the government to collect data.

California Aid-In-Dying Law

Dr. Siegall also shares a report about the new California law that allows doctors to prescribe medicines that aid terminally ill patients take their lives. According to the article, although very few doctors oppose the ‘aid-in-dying’ law, several medics do not want to be called upon to give prescriptions. There is stigma attached to it, according to the piece. The medics are also not willing to follow extensive guidelines or have difficult talks with the patients. The process is complicated for them because doctors are trained to save lives. It is also tedious since it takes a lot of time. Notably, the report also shows that most patients don’t take drugs that are prescribed to end their lives.

About Dr Siegall

Clay Siegall is the president of Seattle Genetics, an organization that develops and commercializes therapies to be used in cancer treatment. Dr. Siegall led Seattle Genetics in coming up with antibody-drug conjugates and securing approval for ADCETRIS, an ADC product. He also convinced over 60 countries to approve the drug. To support this endeavor, Seattle Genetics has been able to raise more than a billion dollars from public and private sources.

Conclusion

Dr Siegal has contributed significantly to the cancer community. He founded the company to find a treatment for cancer patients. As a young boy, he saw his father fight and lose the battle to cancer. Because of this, he wanted to avail oncologists with improved tools to treat the cancer patients. According to him, that’s why he goes to work every day.
