Kabbalah Wisdom: Helping People to View Life Differently

Kabbalah, an ancient wisdom taught from generation to generation, equips the learner with skills to approach life in a more positive way. The knowledge is not tied to any particular religion, and therefore people from all walks of life, religion, or ethnicity are eligible to enroll to study Kabbalah at any Kabbalah Center.

Benefits of Learning Kabbalah

By learning Kabbalah, the learner gets to understand the universe and the creator better as well as get a broader perspective on matters of faith and beliefs. With this understanding, Kabbalah helps people to disentangle their fulfillment from other people and to develop satisfaction from within themselves. Kabbalah doesn’t program or coerce people to think in one particular way. It does not force ideas down people’s throats. All that kabbalah teachers do is disseminate the wisdom and then leave it at the discretion of the learners to apply it in the best way they deem fit. That’s the beauty of Kabbalah.

Origin of Kabbalah

Kabbalah teachings have been there since the universe came into being. These teachings were, however, revealed to humanity about 50 centuries ago and were recorded in an ancient book called The Book of Formation. 30 centuries later, an Israel Rabbi by the name Shimon Bar Yochai dissected the book into two parts- the Zohar and the Torah. The former expounds on the stories from the ancient scriptures while the latter teaches about how the universe operates. Kabbalah was initially taught to Jews only, but it has grown to the entire world over the years

About Kabbalah Center

Kabbalah centers have existed for many decades. The first Kabbalah center was built in the U.S. by Rav Yehuda Tzvi Brandwein about half a century ago, but the Los Angeles Kabbalah Center was built in 1984.

Students are first introduced to the Hebrew language since Zohar and Torah are written in Hebrew. They are then taught the core topics of Kabbalah such as the concept of Klippot, sex, common senses, and even the Bible. The Kabbalah Center at Los Angeles is involved in philanthropy.

Why Evolution of Smooth Is Still Impressing People

The Success Is Easy To See

Evolution of Smooth (https://evolutionofsmooth.ca/) has found an amazing way to succeed in the surprisingly untapped market for lip balm. Before Evolution of Smooth arrived on the scene the most popular brand of lip balm was Chapstick. This dominance was not the result of any smart marketing or anything of the sort. Nobody had even considered challenging them or evaluating the lip market. This is where EOS lip balm was able to find a weak spot to exploit.

What Others Didn’t Notice

What helped Evolution of Smooth reach the level of success that it has generated was the marketing research the firm did prior to launching its product. Their research poked many holes in common assumptions about the nature of lip balm consumers. It appears that lip balm consumers are mostly women and unlikely to be loyal to one brand in particular. This stands in stark contrast to what was once believed about the market. It isn’t unisex and no brand in particular was popular. Evolution of Smooth seized upon this opportunity with a marketing campaign focused on giving customers exactly what they want.

Where Evolution Of Smooth Will Grow

Evolution of Smooth will continue to grow and see most of its growth in its expansion within the personal care market. People have a clear interest in this brand and they know how to capitalize on that. There are now Evolution of Smooth shaving creams and lotions available. Eventually other products will be available as well. Imagine a future with Evolution of Smooth soaps or other products can be found on shelves of Target and Walmart stores across the country. Millennials have fallen in love with this brand and are prepared to give it just about everything they got. Hopefully Evolution of Smooth will return the favor.

 

Thor Halvorssen, Founder of the Human Rights Foundation, Shoots It Straight Politically

The more I read about this Thor Halvorssen guy, the more I like him. He is a real straight shooter. He even shoots straight when it comes to politics which is something rare to behold these days. Here’s an example.

As a young man in college at Pennsylvania University, his father was taken political prisoner in Venezuela. His crime? He was helping the Venezuelan government crack down on drug cartels. I guess he got too close to busting the wrong cartel. Anyways, the man was beaten in prison for nearly 72 days.

Thor helped free his father. You would think Thor hates socialism because the Venezuelan government that imprisoned his father was socialist, but you’d be wrong. He hates unilateral dictators because the leader of the socialist government of Venezuela had ultimate authority without checks and balances. That, Thor would later proclaim during a Fox News interview, is where human rights violations come from.

As an avowed capitalist, Thor would later work for The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education. The right-leaning group fights for an individual’s choice to seek out the education that they want. But despite working for such a conservative group, Thor Halvorssen endorsed Bernie Sanders for the 2016 presidential election. This shocked many, but his reasoning was brilliant.

As someone who cares deeply about human rights, Thor Halvorssen stated that Bernie Sanders had the best human rights track record on either side of the aisle. His democratic socialist stances on many issues did not bother Thor even though he disagreed with many of his platforms. This caught Fox News by surprise.

During an explosive three-minute interview, Thor Halvorssen shocked Fox News. They brought him on believing that he was a right-winged human rights activist that hated socialism. It was the conservative news network’s opportunity to bash the position of Bernie Sanders, who was the democratic frontrunner at the time.

Instead, Thor turned the interview around by shocking the interviewer with the fact he donated the maximum amount to the Sanders campaign. He then schooled everyone in the studio on human rights and their importance in the presidential campaign click here.
