THE ART & SCIENCE OF DOUBTING EVERYTHING
If you are not quitting the path of Kabbalah, questioning the path of Kabbalah and doubting the path of Kabbalah, at least once a week, or better yet, once a day or hourly, then you are not growing!
Negative feelings of wanting to pack it in and thinking it just doesn’t work anymore, that’s the sign you have been making outstanding progress!
Make no mistake, I have been a student of Kabbalist Rav Berg and Karen and the Kabbalah Centre for 25 years.
Those students that love, adore, delight and dance in the Light of Kabbalah every day, every hour, every Sabbath, they are the first ones to quit and move onto another path.
Those who battle daily, who struggle to make the connections, who can’t figure out why everyone is so happy about all the freaking prayers and holidays that we must connect to, those are the ones who build the absolute strongest spiritual muscles.
It must be an up and down struggle because each time you fall, you are actually FALLING UP!
“I am falling up?” you ask?
What does the even mean? Falling up?
There are ladders upon ladders upon ladders in the metaphysical realm. Those ladders are the ten dimensions, the Tree of Life, and they each have ten steps. As you climb up the first ladder, you climb ten steps overcoming doubt along the way.
When u reach the top of Ladder Number One, you feel extraordinary joy and blessings and often you get a miracle or two. But now it’s time to climb up to Ladder Number Two. Now you are starting on the lowest rung. In this world, it feels like you just fell back down to the very bottom again. You scratch your head and say, “What the heck!! It didn’t work. I didn’t change. I am making zero progress!”
Nope. Not at all.
Because you didn’t fall back down to the bottom of Ladder Number One. You fell UP to the very bottom of Ladder Number Two.
And now you begin a new climb to an even higher level of existence and blessings and wisdom.
It might feel like the same problem is recurring in your life. But it’s not the same problem. It’s a deeper level of the old problem, because you are going deeper inside yourself eradicating a deeper level of the force called ego or Satan. You are winning. Not losing.
Each new step will bring a new doubt and a new feeling of quitting. You will be finding things that are wrong with your teacher, things that are wrong and backwards at the Centre and this path.
Because Satan is there waiting for you on each one of those ten steps with a different doubt, worry, fear, and judgmental opinion, which he implants inside your mind.
When you have that doubt and you defeat it, you now move up to the next rung on the ladder. And that’s how you help the world. You have defeated Satan and crushed your ego at that specific level and now you just made it easier for the rest of the world!
So stop thinking only about yourself when you are flooded by doubts. The world is counting on you. And Satan is counting on you to quit.
You must fight on to help yourself, and in turn, to help this world.
You absolutely diminish the global influence of Satan and Ego each time you knock that weasel of an ego off another rung of the ladder.
This is the path of the true warrior of Light.
The war is waged within human consciousness.
And when enough people embrace this profoundly difficult war, a critical mass will be met and we will tip the entire world from darkness to Light.
Satan’s only weapon is to make us doubt, quit and get depressed about each time we climb and fall up to the next level.
He’ll try to convince you that you fell down.
Now you know better.
Study this well. And study it often.
