His latest book is why Mars and Venus collides
He explains that men and women have different brains
In fact almost opposites
In Kabbalah this is also very clear for men have a strength in innovation while women’s strength is understanding reality
The bottom line is, that women cannot turn off reality, while men can
In other words – if you are a man – imagine that reality dictates that you must do four things (cook, earn money, clean, put the kids to bed) then these things become absolutes, and you cannot get around the fact they are necessities
If you are a man however, nothing is absolute, everything can be invented – basically, you have a fantasy button, so nothing in reality troubles you
“In the beginning” really means the primary purpose, for before an intelligent being does anything there is a purpose and the purpose of creation is for the Jewish people.
Then comes the physical beginning, which results eventually in the creation of the Jewish nation at Mount Sinai.
But as God is a God of love, he didn’t leave us in the dark; he desires to give us the mechanism by which we could increasingly achieve better and better things.
Hence God gave us the Torah in which the truth of goodness and kindness and staying away from evil is found.
One of the most fascinating mistakes all religions make even possibly Jews, but not Kabbalah/Chassidus, is the notion of black and white!
Good and bad!
From bad to good, or from neutral to good, is actually the goal of this world!
The simple notion of spiritual people, religions, is, that spirituality is good, hence physicality, particularly pleasure, is bad!
Kabbalah insists, that this world is not an exit towards spirituality, rather spirituality is an entrance into remodeling a possibly crass material existence into a Godly existence.
To keep things simple, I will list the possibilities and it will be the (perhaps) easiest way for us to be able to see this altruistic utopian world, in your (and my) hands!
