Betsy DeVos Has Surprised Some People With Her Personality

You wouldn’t know the kind of person Betsy DeVos truly is if all you did was read some media reports about her. While those reports will breathlessly talk about the Secretary of Education as though they are highly informed and understand her intimately, that is simply not the case. She is really not the kind of person that is so often shown in the media. She is a lot more complex and compassionate than some people might like to believe.

 

Betsy DeVos hails from Grand Rapids, Michigan. She and her husband Dick DeVos are well-known fixtures in the area for the charitable work that they have done. The two are also known for being billionaires after having a large stake of control in the family business called Amway. They have not hoarded their money though, in fact far from it. Instead, they have spread that wealth around by donating to causes that they really believe in.

 

There are some things that you cannot make up when it comes to just how much good these two have done. Betsy and Dick have combined to give away enough to build numerous museums and other buildings of public importance to help grow out Grand Rapids and the influence that the city can have for the people who live there.

 

Other signs that Betsy DeVos is not always the same person that is on television is the fact that she paused to speak with members of LGBT groups before the Trump Administration (which she is a part of) issued new rules that resending the Obama-era rules regarding transgender students using the bathrooms of their choice. Obama-era regulations allowed for this, but the Trump Administration took it away.

 

Betsy DeVos clearly did not agree with what the administration had done, and she wanted to let those who might be most harmed by it know what was about to happen ahead of time. She didn’t have to do that, but she found it to be important enough to make sure they knew what was going on. In this way, Betsy DeVos once again proved that she is not the evil person that some make her out to be.

 

You have to think about Betsy DeVos with a broader mind than what some are willing to approach this with. There are things about her that you probably won’t like, but that would be true of any person. You just have to understand that sometimes people are shown in a certain light in the media when they are in fact much different than that when you meet them up close. Understanding the difference is essential to understanding Betsy DeVos and the work that she has continued to do over the years.

The Kabbalah Centre Provides New Understanding of Ancient Teachings

Kabbalah means “receiving” or “tradition” in Hebrew. It is a discipline and school of thought that originated from Judaism. The characterization can be different depending on the tradition and aims of those following it. Kabbalah Centre is a set of obscure teachings used to define the relationships between an invariable, endless and mysterious EinSof (infinity) and the worldly, predetermined universe (God’s creation).

While it is not a religious denomination all by itself, it is typically used by some other denominations. Kabbalah’s purpose is to define the nature of all creation and the person, the nature and principle of reality and other ontological questions. It provides approaches to aid in the understanding of these concepts to achieve spiritual consciousness.

It originated from within the realm of the Jewish tradition and practicing Kabbalists typically use Jewish foundations to explain its mysterious wisdoms. The teachings are held by Judaism followers to help define the inner meaning of the Hebrew Bible and Rabbinic writings, and to define the importance of Jewish observances.

Kabbalah emerged in the 12th to 13th centuries, in Southern France and Spain. It became reinterpreted in the Jewish mystical renaissance of 16th century. It was popularized as Hasidic Judaism from the 18th century on upward. The 20th century brought must interest in Kabbalah, inspiring cross-denominational Jewish renewal and backing a wider contemporary spirituality, even in non-Jewish people.

The Kabbalah Centre, in Los Angeles, is a non-profit organization that provides courses on Kabbalistic teachings, both online and through its city-based locations. It was developed by Philip Berg and his wife, Karen. The Centre has a multi-ethnic, international staff of teachers that offer guidance to a global community.

Some have seen The Kabbalah Centre as a distortion of the ancient and mystic traditions, as traditional Kabbalah is thought to be so complex that it can only be taught to devout students older than 40.

The Centre was founded in 1965 and the Los Angeles location was opened in 1984. This organization has over 50 branches worldwide, including large ones in New York City, London and Toronto. The Kabbalah Centre’s method of teaching is starting students with Kabbalah teachings that do not make prior knowledge of Hebrew or Jewish texts necessary.
