How does this relate to situations of abuse?I hope that people receiving abuse don't tell themselves that they have to be all for the other person and that they just have to go along with things as they are. Reply

I liked it very much and it does make you think over again and open your eyes for the other person in your life again. Reply

Kabbalistic Philosophy? Please forgive me, but what is "Kabbalistic Philosophy"? (the subject of your many excellent lectures) It seems to be an oxymoron since The Sages dispensed with philosophy, we do not speculate about states we have not attained. and once attained there is no need for it. (philosophical speculation)

Please do not misunderstand, I like Philosophy, but Kabbalah and Philosophy have never been friends.

Disclosing one concealing two... Shalom! Reply

Sharing So where does my compulsion to tie my husband to a chair to listen to this fit into your schematic? JK........but truly, this was fantastic, I think I should listen to it, at least, once a month, if not more often. Reply

You are young enough so you can carry the all "past" without personal experience. If one put it on your intelligence, the result is as we can receive. I'm almost your pupil. Now I'm 63 & I my life is located in Poland. Reply

Back to Genesis for Truth This is greatly insightful psychology; better than a therapist. Gave me a lot of insight on my life of basically being a loner and why my 8 year marriage failed.

Adam and Chava: The First Relationship Thanking G-d for making a helper is really not enough. i thank G-d for getting me some help, period. Like the old saying goes i could use all the help i can get. For the most part being alone is not mentally healthy either. Talking to yourself just doesn't get anything resolved. Great class i need to get up and get out for some fresh air. Reply
