Here’s a New Way of Looking at Changing Your Life

Here’s a New Way of Looking at Changing Your Life

Bringing a New Meaning to “Life-Changer”

There is no such thing in existence as a rigidly defined reality, because all of reality depends on us. This is the first lesson we have to learn. The picture you perceive, see and live in is simply a movie that is being played to you, but you cannot get up and leave.

You are used to it; you’ve lived in it since you were born and you sense it as your life, as if it’s real.

However, one day you find that you have become terribly bored with this movie because your desires have evolved or the suffering that is being shown to you has become unbearable and you crave to rise above it and see something else, some other movie. You long to change the movie.

Kabbalists teach us that unless we reveal spirituality and gain the ability to see other movies, we won’t understand that we are only dreaming. Sometimes we feel the same way while we are asleep: you’re sleeping and are worried about something in your dream, but you get the impression that this is real life, as if you will stay in the dream forever. That is exactly what is happening to you right now – you are asleep!

A Chance for Fundamental Change

Why Do We Feel the Need for Change?

A question arises: Is it not enough that we are born and live our life from year to year? Why do we need to change? It’s obvious that a newborn baby needs to grow in order to start living a meaningful adult life, start a family, have children etc. But why do people need some additional development, aside from the chain of generations inherent to the animal world? Where does this opposition come from? What is the goal of human development? This is something we don’t see.

Still, we can draw an analogy with a baby who is not yet ready for life. A lengthy development is required for a child in order to acquire reason, strength, and feeling until he or she actually learns to understand life, to arrange and alter it. Perhaps it’s the same story with us? Maybe the thousands of years of our development are comparable to the life of one person or every century of human history is like one year for a child?

However, we don’t yet see where we’re going. A child’s development proceeds on a well-trodden path, and we know how to secure for him all the necessary means, including exercises, games, and a specialized environment. And yet the goal of the universal human development is unknown to us.
