Republished: No One Is A Prophet In Their Own Land, Passover And Easter: What Is This All About?

passover and easter coming, get familiar with the facial expression you will see around you Passover and Easter around, you’ll spend time with family. You’ll see examples of “No One Is A Prophet In Their Own Land.”

You’ll be on both sides… by the way. But if you are one of my students, you will feel that you have something to teach your family: and no one will be interested. Get prepared!

In fact they will try to discourage you from continuing to pursue what you pursue when you spend time with me or my writing.

I’ve been teaching the Original Design for five years.

None of the original participants, that were my friends, are around, except one… barely.

I have been going through hell trying to get why that is, and what it is that I need to see.

It is true that no one is a prophet in their own land. Continue reading “Republished: No One Is A Prophet In Their Own Land, Passover And Easter: What Is This All About?”

2015 Passover, the blood moon, what is Passover about?

2015 Passover blood moon signI grew up communist, atheist, so when I left Hungary in 1982, I went to Israel to find out what it means to be Jewish. Honestly, I didn’t like any of it… It wasn’t for me… all that tradition, or alternatively all that worldliness…

I came the the US, and at some point I started to study Kabbalah with the Kabbalah Centre… 1 Kabbalah is an incomprehensible vague oral tradition, wide open to interpretation, and thus, for most people it is quite useless. Mystical, yeah… but… mystical for a purpose is poison to your soul.

Baby Steps To Big Dreams

Baby steps to big dreamsNote: I adapted this post using a salesy email I got this morning… I liked the questions… not the product… If it sounds a little bit salesy… I apologize. That was not my intention.

It is time to be brutally honest with yourself… just like spring cleaning, Passover cleaning, etc. You need to do a cleaning of your house at least once a year…

  • If life has lost its taste.
  • If life has gone hum-drum.
  • If you stopped really enjoying what is supposed to be enjoyable.
  • If the people in your life lost their beauty.
  • If food is only there to be eaten… but really who cares.
  • If you have become dutiful, duty-bound. If it is an effort.
  • If blessed sleep is valued more than your awake hours.
  • If being with yourself has become something to run away from.

Eerie Co-Incidence Or By Design That The Thousand Years Of Peace Began On Rosh Hashana?

shabbat hagadol: run for freedom How eerie is this?

Look at the time-line and tell me if you see what I see:

I made the first request to activate a whole group on April 20th this year.

That day was during Passover, which is the seed level of the year ahead. 1

I had the Event on the 27th to end minutes before the official Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah began, September 27 at sunset.
