Ancient Jewish sages developed the tradition of the kabbalah. Rabbi David A. Cooper is among the first to bring the mystery and mysticism of kabbalah to us in a way that is easy to understand. Kabbalah is about bringing human consciousness to its full potential, recognizing that we are partners with God in the continuous process of creation. This means, as Cooper says, that "There is no move we can make physically, there's nothing we can say, there's no emotion that can arise in us, there is nothing that can happen in our mind, that doesn't ripple into the universe and affect everything in that particular moment as it unfolds." Cooper discusses the kabbalistic notions of soul, soulmates, reincarnation, enlightenment, free will and God. (hosted by Michael Toms)
