One of the most puzzling things about Kabbalah has to do with the proportions of worldly to spiritual. It says it is 1%, as opposed to the 99% spiritual. Therefore if you do your job in the 1% reality, then the 99% reality will to its job. It is like putting in $1 to a self improvement fund, and your company would match it with $99. Good deal, isn’t it.
It may be a good deal, but very few do it.
Why? Because your mindset has to be certainty, instead of waiting for it to come, or hoping, or wishing, or at the other extreme, thinking that you can only count on yourself. Or strong desire… or hoping… or “faith”… or praying… or all the happy horseshit gurus teach.
None of those mindsets activate the 99%. Bummer.
I am learning a “new” method of getting around fear method, called Kaizen.
Kaizen is the tiny steps method. A step can be asking a question, can be saying something, or doing something nonthreatening.
Though no one says, the foundation of the Kaizen technique could be found in the 1%-99% Kabbalistic teaching.
While Kaizen is designed to fool the fear (Satan?). By not waking Satan up to the thousand mile journey you are planning, Satan only knows about a tiny step, and it deems it insignificant. And the tiny steps come, one after the other, in a leisurely way, and Satan doesn’t wake up until you are thousands of miles into your journey.
Each tiny step activates the divine, and makes it easier to get the 99% support.
It goes so counter with the bombastic declarations, or big hairy goals that self improvement gurus preach. And it goes counter with Kabbalah.
