Here it is. Bite-size bits of wisdom as profound and deep as they are simple, short and sweet. This is the wisdom of the ages, the oldest wisdom on earth, the wisdom that not only makes one more knowledgeable, but also elevates the soul and our consciousness, which makes us more pure, clear, enlightened and deeply contented.
Here we go:
1. Darkness has no power, except for the power we believe it has. Here’s proof: The darkness in a pitch black auditorium must diminish in response to the light of a simple candle. No matter how large that auditorium is, the darkness is powerless and light is able to stamp out a portion of darkness. That’s because the light is real. On the other hand, darkness can never snuff out the light. Even if you add more darkness by enlarging the auditorium ten times its original size, all of that increased darkness is powerless against the candlelight. Darkness can never put out the light because only the light is real. The more certainty we have in the existence of the Light, the less darkness shines in our life. It all rides on our certainty in the Light and our ability to ignite Light.
2. Hate has no power, except for the power we believe it has. Hate cannot exist in the presence of true love. Hate only exists when there is a lack of love within someone. Love is immortal. When we love forever, we will live forever. We only age and die because of the lack of love that we share with others. It is ego that prevents us from loving forever, and thus living forever. Kabbalists work at removing all self-interest and ego so that they can achieve immortal life in this world.
3. We are not here to transform our ego. We are not here to be kind and loving people. We’re here to attain immortality & endless joy. Transforming our ego and becoming kind and loving people is HOW we get there. Forget morals and ethics and noble ideals. True transformation is all about creating a win-win paradise for everyone. Especially ourselves! That’s the paradox behind unconditional love for others.
4. We can only share what we have! So we can’t change the world until we change ourselves. People who are busy changing the world are merely fueled by inverted ego. Activism is egoism—unless that activism is directed inward at our own negative traits.
