The Tree of Life: A Lesson from the Kabbalah Center in Los Angeles
The Kabbalah Center in Los Angeles teaches us many things. One of the primary teachings has to deal with the Tree of Life. It has to deal with 10 divine emanations given to us by God. What we choose to do with them is up to us. I have been studying Kabbalah off and on for the last 7 years. There is a lot you can learn from the teachings, whether you go to the center in Los Angeles or somewhere else.
Why is this important? Why study the Tree of Life?
The first teachings were written down in the year 400. Some day it goes back all the way to Abraham. The center in Los Angeles teaches us that the tree forms an entity that is always changing. Here are a few basic teachings and what it all means.
1) It all boils down to relationships. It has to deal with the relationship we have with ourselves, with others, and with the heavens. The tree is a map of consciousness. We are all connected in one way or another. Our thoughts bleed over to someone else.
2) This light from the tree is a blessing. It is there to help us connect to God and to one another on earth. It gives us the support system we need to survive. Once we believe this everything in our life will begin to be changed.
God gives us blessings each and every day. Not all of them are from the physical world, though many of us are attached to it. Many of the blessings come from our relationships. Once we feed into this information and connection, it will change the way we look at one another and treat one another.
