Religion in America is undergoing a revolution. Mainstream religions, Christianity and Judaism have members advancing in age and dwindling in popularity. The only aspect of religion growing is the segment that has no affiliation. Atheism is increasing in numbers in this one nation under God.
Sadly, spirituality even among the major religions is decreasing. There is a feeling of disconnection in society. People have come to almost worship their privacy in America. One of the most enhancing and rewarding aspects of religion is the sense of coming together as an extended family, congregation. The dwindling and changing concept of community has come to the point that Americans fear their neighbors and definitely do not love them. As we extrapolate this out into the global community, we are confronted by this truth. America has become a spiritual wasteland.
Is there hope? A new movement, the Kabbalah, with a functioning center in Los Angeles offers hope; it stresses the importance of giving and makes the connection between spirituality and giving.
Peter Berg and his wife, Karen, are the motivating forces behind this spiritual movement that has attracted the attention of the rich and famous and the just ordinary in the world. Courses are available both online and at the center in Los Angeles and at meeting places throughout Europe and the world.
Originally the movement focused on elements of the Jewish traditions but has since become more open to those who seek a spiritual answer to the problems of the world.
There are fascinating concepts built within the Kaballah movement which include astrology and mystery religions. They have a website that details in word and photo the concepts of the Kaballah Centre and its movement.
Religion by its very nature does not change. The hierarchy of the church fathers demands the strict maintenance of the religious texts and mandates. Religion has become archaic, a dinosaur in the ever-changing world. A stone aged value system that can not work in a society that produces ideas, and sees that change and updating are necessary in every aspect of the real world.
Kabbalah is a religion of mystical faith that dates back 5,000 years ago to the Book of Formation. In Israel, 2,000 years ago, the Zohar, or Book of Splendor, was revealed to Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai. According to Kabbalah, the stories of the Torah are not meant to be taken literally. The Zorah explains the rationale behind the Torah.
Until recently, studying Kabbalah was reserved for only scholarly married Jewish men over the age of forty. That changed with the Kabbalah Centre.
