What is the story behind the Kabbalah?
Write a hub about the teachings of the Kabbalah, or how the Kabbalah came to be the important book that it is today. I do not know much on the Kabbalah, and would appreciate if someone would put together a hub about the Kabbalah, and the story behind the Kabbalah. Another angle that someone could approach about the Kabbalah is it's authorship. Who wrote the Kabbalah?
is this what is spoken of in the THE ARRIVALS documentary?? its 5o documentaries and you can watch it in you tube.
is this kabbalah a part from that. i dont remember which one but in the last 15 documentaries.
Are you joking?
The Kabalah is not a book, but an oral tradition passed down from father to son, the son being married with children and financial independent (very successful) and age 40 or older.
You can read many books on Kabalah, but you will find many blinds or long and narrow paths that dead end, all the while the truth of kabalah is under your nose, between your eyes, within the grasp of your fingertips, a whisper in your ear, and a sensation on your tongue.
It is awakened rather than learned, more remembered than discovered. Its truth and power is realized from within and that which comes from without only confuses at first as one trouncing through a puddle muddies the water.
Kabbalah is open to everyone in our generation: men, women, and children. It is revealed in our time as a means of helping us develope peacefully into the next stage as a human race.
I have written a short history and explanation of Kabbalah in response to your request.
"Kabbalah in Hebrew means "To Receive," which is a good starting point in explaining what Kabbalah is all about."

I will write several more articles on Kabbalah in the coming weeks. Let me know if there are any specific topics you would like to know about.
My best understanding of the origin of Kabbalah is that it represents a third level of rabbinic biblical understanding. It was first written down by R. Shimon Ben Yohai just after the destruction of the second Temple. He authored the Holy Zohar in which, sacred mystical interpretive tradition dating back to the time when Moses received the Torah. The Ramban outlined strict qualifications for study including mastery of Torah oral and written (conceptually and in practice). Hopefully an expert in this area of study will clarify the limits of what I've said here.
Well today the Kabbalah is commercialized. Originally the Kabbalah was only open to a limited circle. These circles still exist and they do not share the knowledge with outsiders and especially not to women, because they are not allowed for priesthood.
In the modern world clever business people have noticed the desire for spirituality and use the Kabbalah to sell people crappy things like tarot cards or book and make them believe wrong stories about god and his angels.
Originally the Kabbalah is a few thousand years old and evolved in the priesthood of the tribe of Levi. Ka and Ba are the old egypt words for body and soul, while alah (allah) is derived from the old hebrew el ilah which means the one god.
Somehow the old teachings of the Kabbalah contain the trinity of the Body, Soul and God. Inside the Kabbalah lies the sealed name of God. In hebrew religion the real name of god was sealed, still today YHWE, Adonai, Hashem etc. are only code words or well descriptions for god, but not his real name.
In ancient times the sexagesimal system was common, counting one hand till 12, and on the other hand all full 12´s. With this method you count till 60 + another 12 with the first hand= 72.
This why there is spoken of 72 names of god or well Angels. But the truth is that in each line there is mathematic cryoptology to prevend that people who do nit belong to priesthood of thetribe of Levi can read it.
I agree with Mark Upshaw. Whoever gave him a minus one knows nothing about the Kabbalah
Some interesting answers, here.
In my own limited research, I found that 2 chapters of Genesis contain the Kabbalah's Tree of Life matrix. So, we know that the Kabbalists were around to influence the writing and compiling of Genesis. I detail this discovery in a series on Genesis. I suspect there is a great deal yet to be discovered on this topic.
