Seems simple enough but then doesn’t it always. I’d rather hoped that this “economic crisis” might suggest to people-in-general that social systems based on that unrealistic foundation might just have run their course, what with the “fall of communism” and all, but it seems like all that’s gonna happen is a continued attempt to make a silk purse world out of the sow’s ear system of capitalism. Some personal solace is found in the considerable evidence that this “crisis” is neither natural nor supernatural but merely more political manuvering. If so then my solution is Patience. Change Will Be.
“Course it Will Be a whole lot sooner if we, as individuals and as a species, put some effort into growth and development as Conscious Beings.

I heard a story a while back that I think is very suited to this crisis: A man meats an angel and asks him to show him heaven and hell. So the angel takes the man through the Gates of hell. There the man sees allot of really thin and miserable looking man and women, so thin that looks more like skeletons than human. Also the man sees allot of tables with very tempting foods and drinks on them. Every once in a while someone reaches the tables and try to put something in their mouth to eat or drink but fails every single time. The man asks the angel why they can’t put food in their mouths. The angel replies him that it’s because they have no elbows so the food can’t reach their mouth.
Then the angel leads the man through the gates of heaven: There the man sees allot of happy and healthy looking people all of them really seems to be having a good time. he also sees the same tables of foods and drinks as in Hell. The man tells the angel “I Understand the people in heaven has elbows”, “No,” replies the angel “They have no elbows as well, but they use their hands to feed one another”. I guess Kabala is trying to teach us that we also have no elbows and that until we understand that we are all dependent in each other , we would keep trying to put food in our mouths but never succeed, and thus be in hell. The only way for us to be in heaven is to start feeding one another. When that will happen, better sooner than later, than all our problems will be solved.

Apocalypse -WOW-,
From time immemorial mankind has contemplated his demise. For the first time in history we have the ability, and it seems the proclivity to take the rest of the planet down with us. In “The Day The Earth Stood Still” this scenario was portrayed on the silver screen with the determinate of man’s better nature getting a second chance before the forces of the cosmos were forced to to do a little damage control here on the 3rd rock from the sun. The answer, contrary to materialist pundits is not in some external technology or control which can NEVER work against the egoism that dominates the planet, it is within us. Consider the butterfly effect of the small still voice, correcting one person to another into a state where every desire is fulfilled for he sake of bestowal.

In short order, when we reach the point of quickening, the former things will be detestable to the soul. Everyone will awaken to see the futility of the rampaging beast that ruled formerly the hearts of men for the withering chimera it is. the power of creation stirs within the breast of the creature and will guide all in all to a new dawn for mankind. Baal HaSulam has left a treasure for those able to obtain it. It is the duty of every soul to engage in the work of restoration of humanity. It is only for this time that the opportunity is intended, and as such must be employed with all due ability.

  Victor Hugo Schulz wrote @ February 28th, 2009 at 1:06 pm

In Kabbalah, as opposed to many other teachings, instead of looking for problems in the world, man shifts the perception of the cause of problems from the external world to itself. The whole world is contained inside of the man, thus correcting the man is the key to correct the world. A man corrects his “for myself” part into the “for the friend”, and the union between everyone is the goal. By changing himself while joining a group of likeminded people, in which everyone wants to unite, man acquires the tools for correcting the entire world, and by passing on all he learned for anyone who is willing to learn, it can make this group grow more and more, until all the world is the group, everyone is his friend. He doesn’t need to worry about himself anymore, because he is sure that every other friend of him will provide what he needs. And he, also, make every effort to make sure that all friends of him have everything they need to attain the goal.

Altruism- Now, that’s it. It’s the opposite of altruism. Egotism, selfishness, greed and fear got us into this mess. Yes, fear is most certainly an opposite of altrusim, because the further we go from altruism, the darker things get; it’s scary blundering and bumbling around in the dark. Grave mistakes are inevitable. A great part of our present predicament is fear or lack of trust.

Working together for our common good, even if doing so seems to make any particular member of humanity’s personal situation temporarily, worse is what we must strive for.

While genuine altruism may seem just about impossible, surely our initial inablility to acheive this state may engender a sort of humility out of which may spring an earnest yearning. Then, who knows… an opening may come. We must do what we can do and not pretend to be able do what is beyond us.

This crises could be looked at and dealt with kabbalistically by understanding it’s deeper symbolic meaning in light of it’s interaction with the tree of life, and the tree of life that exists within each of us. Right now many people are having difficulty “standing” which is metaphorically connected to the legs of the tree, Netzach and Hod. By developing ourselves internally and tapping into these divine energies connected to our inherent sense of self, self esteem and self-worth we can change our realities to allow us to stand again and attract to us the right solutions and jobs that reflect our enhanced sense of self. Perhaps the jobs that people have been losing are not supportive of their true godly selves. Perhaps we have been selling ourselves short, and what is happening now is part of a purification of our idolotry and external attachments to systems of power that have been negotiating the power of our spirits. It is time perhaps for humanity to develop into their true power and true sense of purpose using the Adom Kadmon as a blueprint to take us back to the garden of unlimited possibilties. The Tree of Life has been split in half, and so have we. The Shekinah has been in exile and split from the King, which means that our worldy creations, our worldly systems of power have been split from their higher potential and ability to manifest heaven here on earth, and they have split us from our higher potential as well. It is time for us to repair the splits in our own souls so that we no longer find ourselves acclimating ourselves to a world, to a Makuth that is Split from Tiferith, that is split from the knowing of our hearts. It is time that we create a self and reality which our systems are supporting and unified with the wisdom of the heart and allow each of us to put the wisdom and guidance of our hearts before earthly politics and concerns. It is time to believe that following the guidance of spirit no matter how unreasonable it seems will guide us to a solution out of this crises and to solutions for our own lives as well.

Mans egoistic and greedy attitudes have served man well in the past. Great nations, commerce and wealth have been created. But it is no longer the case that we can successfully proceed simply “looking after number one”.

We are in a new phase of our evolution. Planet earth seems much smaller in the age of chartered flights and satellite communication. More than this we are globally interconnected and reliant on each other. This is evident financially in the banking system, and ecologically in our attempts to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations.

We must now learn to live within our means and to come into a balance with nature. This is not just for world leaders and scientists, but each individual. How do we alter our behaviour towards each other? A good start might be to have the intention only to treat others the way you would like to be treated.

Solving the crisis is a matter of facing up to the facts, looking straight in the face , and acknowledging once and for all that we don’t know!!! We need people to start acknowledging that they are living in a big mystery, and that this mystery is not waiting to be solved any longer, but pushing us to evolve. The crisis will be solved when this understanding washes over people and opens their ears and hearts to Kabbalah, to love and to seeking outside their boxes for the solution. The solution will be there when people are ready to see it, it has been there for many years and it is this: each person is loved and needed in this world. Each person has the ability to become a saviour and a healer. Empowered by this knowingness people will be willing to step forth and speak for wisdom and for Love to spread the law of “love thy neighbor as yourself”.
-We must acknowledge the big mystery
-We must empower the people to understand their unique value as individuals in the healing of the world. For each person is uniquely created.
-We must unite as one to bring all of our gifts and talents together, to make a better future of prosperity, peace and Love.

With, hope and intention for this outcome of bliss,
Tal

The solution to the crisis would be adopting bestowal as the most appropriate way of behavior. However, the idea that we need to stop talking and start acting in this direction is more confusing than the term “bestowal” itself because nobody knows where and how to start.

Bestowal is not moving out of your house or donating your car to a Charity. Bestowal is about re-assessing and probably giving a new meaning to the question “What I’m here for?”
Bestowal is better understood through yet another glance at the shaken economy.

Every single industry of our society has been established and for decades has been functioning for its personal sake only. Never a thought “Is it a right approach?” or “Is it reasonable at all to exist for one’s personal sake?” has crossed anybody’s mind (I’m not trying to point fingers – I’m not an exception myself, it has never crossed my mind either).
No industry has ever concerned itself with the need of the society as a whole because such need did not seem to be in existence to be considered. Maybe that’s the reason for the process of disintegration we are observing?

(Although we still have difficulties formulating that, but deep inside we all agree that our well being depends on the society being functional)

So, how many financial institutions do we open, how many cars and which ones do we produce, how many houses, which ones and where do we build, how much crop do we grow, how many doctors, engineers and teachers do we educate, etc so the society as a whole stays functional and healthy?

If every industry realizes that it cannot just produce goods but have to produce per the need of the society – it’s already a bestowal. If every industry agrees to convert itself into a utility to serve others – it’s a bestowal. If the leaders of national and international levels come together with the strong determination to find the way to synchronize and start searching for the method to do so – it’s a bestowal…

These are all just beautiful words – one could say. How does it apply to us – individuals?
> But who are the carriers of the thought that we have a common interest in our society being functional? It’s us, individuals! So, if we cultivate and cherish a dream of all of us being members of one happy and functional family – we already bestow into our society’s well being.

What is my personal interest here, except of “the well being of the society”? – one could ask again. What about the enjoyment we are here after? How can I be sure that participation in new relationship within the society will bring me pleasure I so crave?
> But what could be more noble and pleasurable than sensation of the uniqueness of a single particle the whole system cannot do without?…

  Betsy Schwartz wrote @ February 19th, 2009 at 6:58 am

It’s really very simple. Let the whole system collapse and start over, a better way. Let’s face it, the capitalistic system of supply and demand, and whoever can make the money wins, doesn’t work to benefit humanity as a whole. A system based on success equals money is bound to fail. We need to set up offices or places around the world where people can submit the top three things they love to do and are good at, then each is assigned a job or profession accordingly. Leadership should be voted in by who is the wisest of sages in different areas of life, i.e. building, science, child development, etc.. Those people could build their core group of experts to lead the way in that area of human life. We need to go back to the bartering system as much as possible. Trading what we have and what we know with each other, rather than being this consumer driven economy. Some form of money would need to be developed, based on what somebody needs to acquire basics such as food, clothing and shelter. Many more communal living communities should be built and develeoped so people can connect with others around them and really start caring for their neighbors in a real way. Until we think outside the box and begin to realize that doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is oure insanity, nothing will change. People have to change. They have to realize that it is only in connecting with others and in treating everybody the same, as if they were a part of you that real progess can be made.

The Solution lies within the perceived problem. The problem actually IS the Solution – when realized in a different way. When enough of us find it intolerable to continue trying to live with old attitudes, in old ways and we REALLY want the solution, we will receive it in a calm, new way, the way we were meant, in His way.

The suffering in the crisis makes us want more. But it also makes us realize what exactly we needed out of that state of mind. This way we can overcome and become.
It’s connected to connection. We have to influence each other by being the exact shoulder that is needed. The hand that helps… only because we’ve been given the opportunity.
Everyone in the world needs to realize that only by our influence on each other can any of this mess be cleaned up, and when cleaning up the world, we all have a piece of trash to pick up and make into something else… all you have to do is take care of your own piece of trash. You are the only person that can make it into something beautiful. And it can only be with others like you. Others that want only to influence others, properly. You have to want it enough so that they can want it enough.

The world crisis. it’s funny to say, but there is no crisis.
people got enough food to sustain, they have shelters, they have company
to assist them. what more is needed….?
pepole got all they need, but they cannot accept this simple fact.
if people relaxed a little, they will notice they live in a beautiful world, nothing really to worry about.
ofcourse there’s a little shake in the world, but as said in the movie “Revolver”
“there’s nothing like some money loss and a little humiliation…..”
people who want to survive this “crisis” shouldn’t go finding solutions to their own problems, they should gather together and start helping each other getting basic and fundemental care. no more no less. when you have food and shelter, you are safe. when you have people who accompany you, you are secured.
from here people can start thinking about growing.
it’s like the flowers. they need soil,water and sun in order for them to bloom. i don’t see why you need to kill yourself in order to live.
live in harmony, ask what you need. if you ask for a glass of water and pieace of bread, who will refuse to help……?
people forgot about the land that nurture us, nobody gives respect. you kill the earth you kill yourself.
people need to learn about starvation, maybe they will eat less.
people need to learn to walk instead of driving, and their body will thank them.
people need to spend some time outside the babylonic reality, and maybe they will find out fresh air is satisfaction.

why defiant the law of gravity?
A. Because you can.
B. Because you need.
C. Because it’s there.
D. I don’t defiant it, i live and accept it.

think about this question, what is your nature, do you live fearing the law?
or is it your true nature, the nature of love………?
buildings you can always build, but life you cannot always live.

with true love to the real nature, still, flora, live.

So many beautiful and impressive contributions have been added to the search for a way to end the crisis so we would like to add our ‘’’ounce’’ to all of them AND also………..

We seek support to continue the development of a ‘school’, for our children, where the method, that is Kabbalah, is thought and learnt.

We seek to have a written curriculum,/syllabus, for children of all ages,

We seek to have these development plans, including assessment, evaluations, monitoring, developed, step by step……..

We seek to have training and development for all teachers and potential teachers.

We seek to have this kabbalah school, resourced and available, for others to come and see.

We seek to work with our expanding group, the world Kli, and the parents and family of our children, to end the crisis for them and thus the world.

With the books , the group and the Rav, we and our children will move towards the Goal, correction of our intention from receiving for self alone to bestowal, adhesion to the group and thus the Creator ;away from the crisis to the……………………….

Those people who know the reason of global crisis should by all means explain it to the others. There is no solution without treating the reason. And the reason is in our rapidly growing ego and our unability to control and manage this ego. In order to understand how to do it correctly we should learn and therefore we should change the education system. If we will only rise one correcly educated generation – there will be no crisis.
All the problems we are facing today – political and economic corruptions, wars, terrorism, crime, abuses of all kinds, ecology – have only one reason and it is the evil in man himself, we are egoists and are opposite from nature. So in order to come out of crisis we have to acknowledge our ego and learn how to deal with it. Therefore we need to change the education system.

The current crisis is gonna drive a lot of people to seek for one autorithy to lead the way. Lets do our best to guide ourselves and everyone that needs it to Bnei Baruch. I think if we succed, we can help to avoid autoritarian regimes coming to power, and guiding people to Bnei Baruch wouldn’t mean that they gonna fall under the authority of a person or a group, but conciously fall under His authority. Double efforts on dissemination ( targeting mass media). Maybe is a form to tell the world: “there is none else besides Him”.

that’s all I could think, I hope it helps.

There is no crisis only the perception of one. What is occuring is a major correction as we have strayed too far from centre. Therefore it is our perceptions that need to be realigned and readjusted. We need to ask “What is our true desire?” rather then “What am I suppose to desire?” and be willing to recieve it.
All is from God.

The crisis is generated by exhastion of the human energy-the light received automatically by every living man not engaged in spiritual development work of conscios purpose and intention(kavana),by trickle process from higher realms.
Exhastion is caused by the power entities of modern economy that are structurs
designed to convert human ‘commodities’ (love,care,willingness,respect…)
that origenate in the light into deadly economic power (low order) through an irreversible ,one way process.(money can’t buy me love’).
This destructive economical process has expanded to every possible aspect of life and to all the corners of the earth thereby eliminating the last reserves of humane commodity in asia and latin america,crossing the threshhold point
of collapse.-no more available sources to sustain the greedy growth.
THE SOLUTION lies in the creation of a diametrically opposite new process
that will generate grace annd human qualities by activities designed to generate
light as a first principle.so work will generate light and not consume it.
People will go home charged and regenerated rather than draind exhasted and wasted.Because every business will be defined and measured by its human contributon.THIS IS REDEFINITION OF ECONOMY and can’t be opened in this short submission.we love you all.thank you for being here in this critical time
in the evoluton. of the world.

1) Eliminate Federal Income Taxes (in the US) for anyone making under X amount of dollars. The intention here is to relieve the poor and middle class struggling to meet their obligations.

2) Replace these income taxes with a new “Luxury Tax” on Luxurious Goods and Services. Tax everything that could be considered a luxury item or a luxury service.

This would immediately help to BALANCE the scales between the rich and poor.

In short, freedom, capitalism, and transparency. Free societies and people make good decisions for themselves and there people. Freedom is empowering to all. Freedom the power resides in the people. This allows people to be accountable and empower others to be the best they can be. Ultimately be goding in their human existence. Capitalism is the form of market that is the most resilient to change. Capitalism flows with change, allows all people to make a profit from the market and rewards those that are being. Capitalism follows the principals set down by nature. That those who do or be are rewarded with abundance, which is our birth right, and those who don’t, don’t get. Transparency, is so that all activity is visible to the people that are interested. Government is to be fully transparent, full disclose, to the people that it administers. In the market, the financial sheets of companies fully disclose its state. In relationships, is to allow the intimacy, the love, all of this is transparency in a relationship.

Our Crisis is Global; is affecting all species from the ocean to Subatomic particles. Hence, the solution must be a global solution. The crisis will be solved by creating one world government that implement a new system of education using a method of correction, Authentic Kabbalah, this will awaken humanity. The World Government will have one main commandment “Love thy Neighbor as Thy self” that will be passed as a constitutional Law for everyone for follow. Eradicating our evil (the ego), citizens will start changing their thoughts and care for each other as one body. The banking system will change and poverty will disappear. If we do this Nature and all that lives on earth will come to balance. We will be in harmony in a complete new world learning the real purpose of life.

This is our simple and radical way to solve the problem, but we cannot do it alone …

The solution is not easy but it is possible and it is much easier than the alternative, e.g. progressive suffering. The solution comes with the following realizations:
1. The Creator put us into a material world that shows limited resources while inviting us to see into a spiritual world of abundance without limitations;
2. We are all one Kli;
3. By sharing motivated by altruism (unconditional love) we overcome our fear of lack and move from competition and greed to cooperation and bestowal.
4. To do the above requires knowledge, faith, and discipline in letting go of our limited concepts;
5. This unifies spirit with materiality. . . and,
This is Tikkun – the essence of Kabbalah.

I think the worst is to come. For the people hardest hit food, water, and shelter will be things they pray for, like Jacob before he became Israel. People with land should let people learn how to farm without the dependancy of petrochemicals fetilizers, poisons, and geneticly modified organisms. Water should be conserved and desalination plants opened everywhere possible. Shelter can be as low tech as one can think., straw bale home, tents, ect… Man has made it without technology for since the begining of time. Only in the last 100 years has the average man become diconected from nature and dependant on this global economy. Love of your neigbor and this planet is the work at hand, not love of mammon. We must localize the issues and have the foresight to mend problem that are important, food, water, and shelter. Did Adam have money, tecnology or was he made to till the land.

“and My eyes and heart will be” Jonathan renders (I Kings 9:3):”and My presence will rest there if My will is performed there at all times.” My eyes will be there if My heart and My will are there. Negating egoism is possible through pure acts of chesed .These pure acts of chesed gives birth to humility as we reach out beyond ourselfs. When we touch one another we touch G-d. It is at this point or matrix that we encounter His Presence.

The Solution to Global Crisis.

First of all, I think it is essential not to panic. If everyone starts to fear and worry about “their” money and “their” situation, immediately we start to behave in a really egoistic manner.
So… we need to push the “pause” button for a while, breathe and re-think about our approach to the whole situation.
Ok, it is true that it is not the best moment in our economic history, but it is also true we can see it as a big opportunity for us.
What we have done to reach this degree of chaos? Why everything seems to be so confuse and everybody appears to be running to “save” themselves?
The answer is we have disconnected from the rest of our colleagues in life. We firmly believe our personal interests are first. But they are not. If we could imitate the rest of living beings, we’ll understand that only by working all-together for the global interest as well as for our personal we could softly achieve a balanced state of wealth for all of us.

Let’s do it.

The Solution to the Financial Crisis

How can we remedy the lack of trust that is the root cause of the financial crisis?

When a problem arises, the solution often seems to present itself and in this case the solution is the fast growing phenomenon called Kabbalah. In common with some religions, the ancient Jewish wisdom of Kabbalah tells us that all of humanity shares one integrated soul which is actually a realization that we are all one big family that must look after all of its members.

Six thousand Kabbalah students from all around the world recently gathered in Israel to promote their ideal that all of humanity is one large family. Witnessing the love and trust between Muslims, Christians, and Jews, and between many different cultures and races was truly a humbling experience that seems to hold the solution to all our problems:

• Can a financial crisis exist between brothers and sisters who feel responsible for each other?
• Can anxiety and fear exist in a family?

This crisis has prompted many to re-examine their ideologies and beliefs.

Perhaps it has served a useful function after all?

  Karen wrote @ February 16th, 2009 at 11:31 pm

There is no earthly solution to our global crisis. Only through correcting our self-centered and egoistic nature and growing our hearts until we can feel that we are all one will stop the escalation of violence and greed. Without an absolute knowing that we are all part of one creation of our Creator, each nation and individual will continue to act in its perceived best interest until we destroy ourselves. Only through the study of Kabbalah can we accelerate our spiritual growth so that we can fulfill our Creator’s intention for us to live in love and harmony and end human suffering. Ultimately, ONLY the light of our Creator will end the global crisis and will must appeal to Him for this light.

The whole world is “bleeding” money! And this suffering is only the beginning… the imploding financial world is revealing to us how we are all connected; reminding us that “Love Your Friend as Yourself” is more than ideal or ethic ? it is REALITY.

Just as cells in one organism, we are all connected and we must behave accordingly. We cannot insulate ourselves, we cannot run away somewhere into open space, and we cannot create open space by annihilating others without destroying our self. Care for each and every part is essential for the well-being and survival of the whole.

Only by uniting with each other toward harmony with Nature, will we start moving in the direction of spirituality and rise together above the crisis.

The first step in this direction is to change our intention: instead of looking for the best opportunity to take advantage of the market, we must look for the best opportunity to contribute to the market; instead of caring for our own interests, we must safeguard the entire system.

Just one qualitative step in this direction will bring us to a new world, a world of goodness and love. The only question is, how much more suffering we will have to go through in order to realize this is the only way out of the crisis?

In my opinion the world crisis, be it financial, social, religious, security, or in the scientific community, is driving humankind to the brink of despair. Mankind is coming to the realization that nothing manmade or conceived of up to this point is true or trustworthy as it is built on our individual innate desire to supersede any other person or organization. When people lose confidence in the support structures that we have taken for granted the very ground we stand on is shaken. With no where to turn the crisis will turn mankind to the only solution. That is the wisdom of Kabbalah. Institutions, organizations and structured dissemination and teaching of Kabalistic principles and wisdom must be in place when the final collapse occurs. This must be a worldwide effort so that no one is outside the safety net of Kabbalah. Each one taking care of one other, until all are cared for, asking nothing in return because nothing will be needed by anyone.

There is no other solution for the crisis, this is the final help against mankind.

The solution begins with acknowledging our interdependence and our huge egos. Rather than placing blame on everyone and everything but ourselves and continue to offer a false world view that has engendered pain and suffering, we should be aware, by now, of just how serious things are in the world we call ‘reality’.
As humanity gropes forward being pushed by forces unknown to him, there is a real possibility that a small group can tip the balance that favors altruism over egoism in the very near future. The beatings, accompanied by a viable entity to explain what is transpiring, will reinforce the move toward homeostasis…the balance.
We can change the pardigm by choosing and changing our environment to one where we work on a human model, providing for the group, a society where giving and love are valued over taking and hate. By gradually bringing the world this wisdom through dissemination we cause a correction. We must aim to fan the fire of desire for spirituality and provide the method of correction. This is the only way.

We humans tend to run all the time, like almost skipping the present jumping from past to future. We talk to someone, and we do not even wait for them to finish the sentence, we finish it for them, and then move on. That is how we try to solve this crisis too. Immediate knee jerk reactions, and if they do not work we throw another reflex reaction on, and so on, not even recognizing that we fall deeper.
First we should just stop and listen, feel. What has just happened? What does the situation tries to tell us? What can we learn here?
The education, the analysis of the crisis is the first step.
What are the factors every person can recognize by now: on one hand we live in a totally interconnected world, on the other hand there is no trust or any meaningful positive connection between us. Although we are now physically connected like cells in a single body, we want to behave like cancer cells. And the body is very sick.
If we all understood these principles, the solutions would be almost automatic.
So let us just stop, listen and learn.

First, to worry about our own correction as soon as possible, doing a deep reflection and then to wish that the rest does the same thing.

We live in a time where no long can a tsunami happen somewhere in the world and kill 1 million people like it has in the past in places like China, or a war in Europe where millions die, or a financial crisis in Japan or Argentina and it not effect the rest of the world. We have internet and TV /media that now when a 911 occurs or and tsunami in SE Asia that kills 300,000 happens, or a war in the Middle East, or a financial Crisis in the US those images and emotions of pain, suffering, anxiety, hatred, fear etc are broadcasted around the world simultaneously so everyone in the world in every household no mater where you live. We instantaneously FEEL all these emotions in us, as if it happened to us. We feel each other no matter where we are immediately. No longer are we alone in our on house, village, city or country. WE are with each other, and feel each other. Kabbalah must counteract this force these emotions that are swirling around the world through the media networks with the emotions of unity, connectedness, joy, cooperation, hope and LOVE as quickly as possible through all forms of media. Pulling us back together as one ,not through the emotions of fear , anger and hatred but binging us to the emotions of love, compassion and unity. This is how we must feel each other. All efforts must be toward this. This is the force that must be disseminated by all means possible as quickly as possible through every media channel. We must have a 24 Hour US cable Channel that is translated into all languages. I know you can do this.

Although playing to take home all the chips works wonderfully in a game of poker, the crisis has revealed that such motives in the business world only ruin the economy. The answer to the crisis is to teach business leaders how to benefit the world with their bright ideas, rather than aiming to profit from the world.

We should start a pseudo-company website, a kind of spoof on the ‘business analyst’ paradigm that looks totally serious but was full of altruistic videos and taglines, explaining how to ‘love your neighbor as yourself’ using business terminology and other lingo. If the website portal is intriguing enough, it would spread across the world’s business class like wildfire. I’ve met those guys, and they all fall to pieces over slick web-based fluf!

To solve the crisis every man, woman and child should

a) realize that after hundreds of years no human being has the solution

and

b) call out from the bottom of their hearts together for the Upper Force to save their friends by bringing correction to the crisis.

and

c) start living a new life in perfection in the Light which is love your neighbour as yourself.

The law of Nature is one of absolute altruism–true love and bestowal. Within the law of Nature, all of Creation takes only what it needs to survive, thus the entire system remains in balance, flourishes and remains a self-perpetuating system of plenty. Man’s egoistic nature operates in direct opposition to this system tipping the scales of Nature’s balance reflected in the current global crisis. Man’s ego has not led him to seek connections or have concern for others, and all the technological advances in the world cannot “fix” this malfunction and bring humanity to a state of balance. Man will continue to live with his own self-interest at heart, not entering into the state of “love thy neighbor as thyself.” Kabbalah has the simple answer:

“When all human beings agree to abolish and eradicate their egoistic will to receive for themselves, and have no other desire but to bestow upon others, all worries and evil in the world will cease to exist. And we will all be assured of a healthy, complete and secure life, since for each and every one of us there will be a whole world ready to satisfy his every need. However, when everyone has only the will to receive for himself, from here originate the pains, the wars and slaughter which we cannot escape.”

Let’s start learn different. Let’s create new models of activities. Let’s invent kabbalistic Universityes and Colleges. Mabe, when people will think different they will create different things – different models of business, different law, diffferent technologies, different foods, different…

  Rolland wrote @ February 16th, 2009 at 10:47 am

The aim is to put some new thinking to other people heads. While each of us have our own sphere of interest (law, business, design, gaming, engineering,..) we can leave our cabalistic ideas in forums – virtual or live. Too, much of us read virtual newspapers – here we can leave our comments. Any little message touches that little “point” in reader’s minds which intenses new light new thinking. Let’s do what we like and spread new thinking among similar to us.

First, the soil must be prepared, which means that the nations of the world will see a continued decline in their respective economy and fear will escalate as it becomes understood that these huge stimulus packages have only added to the burden. At first, religions may gain more power as people think they are turning to God. The more religions develop greater influence, the more it will be revealed they have no answers and no real connection to God. However, this yearning for God will remain and grow as the fear intensifies. The soil is ready.True prayers will rise and points in the heart will activate. When the point in the heart is activated, then the Creator will bring this person to Kabbalah. The Creator is the only possibility of a solution. Kabbalah simply delivers us to the Creator through “Love thy friend as thyself”.

The global crisis is the reflection of the our ambalance with the Nature. As we have attained the last degree of the desire’s evolution, the discontent is spreading in each part of our life. Family, Food, Money problems, Governements which are collapsing, and Scince. If we see closely we can say that the states of alef, bet, ghimel and dalet are in crisis becouse there is problem in an upper stage wich is the stage of the man. So in past when there was a problem in stage bet, for example, we corrected it by using the ghimel stage. Now the problem is in daled so it seems that there is no solution. Yet, the solution is obvious we have to correct ourselves.
And the question is how can we correct ourselves? With the mutual connection between us, and the Nature is forcing us to attain this law.
Is like a phisycs law, the scientist knows that by eluding that force great harm will come. We are eluding this general law for the simple reason that we are not aware of it. And when we wil be, we are not so stupid to elude it again. It is like to say that I’m aware of falling from the tenth floor and I will splat on the floor.

My solution in a few words : Complete collapse of the financial system of the world, complete collapse of the world ecomony, strong psychological shock due to “losing everything”, finding a solution to this absurd situation requires a questioning of all current beliefs because obviously some core assumptions were wrong since the collapse could not be avoided , questioning of beliefs leads to a disintegration of neurological structures representing the current world view in the human brain of each individual , by that the ego is cracked “the hard way” , people who are not willing to let go of their ego will not make it through the crisis , after a short period of total chaos new society structures form out of grassroot approaches, these local communities slowly grow together , once humanity has taken the first steps in the right direction there will be some help from “above” and things will get really awesome.

We have a good future ahead if you look at things from the big picture perspective
