A Letter Written to the Kabbalah Centre in response to a students complaints about being hounded into buying more and more
Please accept, Centre, some constructive thoughts here.
When meditating or saying prayers can you force the meditation or force the prayers?
Truth and Kabbalah cannot be sold. The money you receive for your teaching is purely through HaShem's grace. Try not to take this for granted or seek to gain more than your share or like the manna that spoiled, it will taint your message, causing you to gain much early and lose all later when the sun rises for the new day.
Your publication of the Zohar is magnificent along with all the commentary. When anyone has the ability to purchase this, I would encourage this completely. Absolutely awesome. If it were just for this it would have been enough.
Mind over matter is just that. It works everytime. Perhaps let go of the money a little and pay more attention to the person you are speaking to. This is how the connection is made. It isn't the passing of a few bills, but the passing of a truly caring heart, one love for one another. Only by seeing into a persons heart can you reach their mind and connect. HaShem is always with you. Make the connection in this way and miraculously your sustenance will be provided from sources you could not conceive of the day before.
In America we give our money out of love and compassion and our need to exchange value for value. Do not take us for granted or America for granted either. The very land itself is overflowing with spirit, truly from sea to shining sea and in the incredible kindness of the people living here regardless of race or creed.
Your one is the 99 percent world. You cannot coerce this but can only bring it forth through compassion. The end does not justify the means. The means is the end.
Thank you Centre for listening
