Choice vs Fate (Part 1 of 3) — Illustrated Video Teaching
A kabbalistic exploration of Choice vs Fate based on the Ari (R. Isaac Luria) and a particularly relevant feature of Quantum Mechanics.
This Illustrated Video Teaching introduces the concept of I-centers—an extremely useful tool for sorting through the complexities of paradox. It is always good to build an idea from the ground up. In the next teaching (Part 5 or our series) we will examine the mystical origins of this concept as well as its practical applications.
Paradox is a subject that is oft-discussed, but there is actually very little instruction about how, practically, to work with it. These 12 Illustrated Video Teachings (of 7 – 10 min. each) present paradox as a spiritual path and provide practical instruction about how to negotiate (and even embrace) paradox.
This video teaching, called Varieties of Paradox, is a summary of the different types of paradox that we encounter in the world. People expressed confusion because we have introduced so many different kinds of paradox and each one calls for a different response and they felt a bit overwhelmed by the unruliness of the subject. This video provides a framework that organizes the complexity and makes it more manageable.
