    The Solution to the Global Crisis

    Nature is out of balance. We know this. We know that our modern industrialized society has exploited Mother Nature causing much damage to our eco system. Our weather patterns are changing and global warming is upon us. What may not be understood is all of the ramifications of this assault on Nature. The current global financial crisis is the latest example. What we do not understand is that our assault on Nature is actually an assault on our selves. We can destroy everything or we can learn from the message given by Dr. Laitman in this book. It is not too late. The ancient science of Kabbalah can explain exactly what is going on and it can also provide the solution we need. This is a very important book!

    We Are All A Part of the Solution

    From Chaos to Harmony The Solution to the Global Crisis According to the Wisdom of Kabbalah, Michael Laitman, PhD<BR/><BR/>The escalating global financial crisis makes this book, written over two years ago, incredibly relevant. Latiman explains, ¿The purpose of the crisis is to make us realize that we are treading the wrong path and must change course.¿ How to change course is precisely what Laitman shares: it is to implement a fascinatingly simple principle of altruism. Altruism is the natural law that even our own bodies obey as each cell and each organ operates only to fulfill the needs of the entity as a whole. Laitman offers proofs of both the causes of the economic crisis, as well as all other social, personal, and global problems and also for the solution. This is a brilliant, logical approach to achieving harmony and peace that we all yearn for. Better still, Laitman describes that every individual, each and every one of us CAN make a difference.

    Perfect Book for Troubled Times

    This book is perfect for the tremendous pressure the world is experiencing. <BR/>From chaos, comes harmony. However, it is hard to imagine. Dr. Laitman's book explains how we get to this point in history and what it will take to move out of it. I highly recommend this book to anyone who would like a more clear picture of where humanity is and how we got there. Every action causes a result. The only way to change the result is to perform a new action.

    You can find Harmony within Chaos

    Rav Laitman's book offers all of us a chance to grasp the meaning of the chaos in the world, why it is happening, and most importantly, how each individual can work to correct the chaos starting with him or herself. This is a perfect book for those who know little or nothing about Kabbalah, but would like to learn why Kabbalah is so important in these times. It is easy to read, and Rav Laitman is a master at understanding his audience, and what it is that they need from his books.

    It makes so much sense!

    When I look around at the events in the world today - terrorism, financial collapse, hunger, environmental disasters - I feel a sense of helplessness and hopelessness. This book helped provide me with a larger perspective to start seeing not only why these things are happening, but why they are necessary. If we can begin to understand the source of all our problems, we can take steps to correct them. Right now, it is like squeezing a balloon - we fix one problem only to have it pop out in 3 other places!

    What's the Problem?

    As the saying goes, 'If you're not part of the solution you're part of the problem'. That's well and good except 98% of people don't understand what the problem really is. In his book, 'From Chaos to Harmony', Michael Laitman not only explains the problem facing individuals and society today but reveals the solution to our situation. This is life changing reading.

    We are the solution!

    I want to share this amazing book with everyone I know who has ever expressed an interest in learning more about Kabbalah! Laitman manages to deal with complex subjects that concern all of humanity in a clear, straight-forward and inspiring manner. Then he shows us how we can have a positive impact on humanity through focus and effort as individuals.

    For those looking for an intellectual understanding of why we humans have such difficulty getting along to those looking for an emotional connection to one another - look no further! This book artfully blends explanations about our current world crisis that are satisfying to both our intellect and our emotions.

    From Egoism to Altruism

    I have found it difficult to try and summarize this book. It is a really good explanation of Kabbalah on many levels. It took me a while to finish, but I felt the need to reread some of the chapters before I moved on. I have read many books on Kabbalah over the past couple of years. This book contains one of the most simplistic descriptions of what a person feels and perceives as they change from egoism to altruism I have ever found.
    This is a very good book for anyone that has not felt satisfied with any explanations on what the purpose of their life is. Or anyone who has just wondered if there is more out there then meets the eye.

    From Chaos to Harmony

    Have you ever wondered why you want something so much and then when you get it all of a sudden you want something else? Our desires constantly change. From Chaos to Harmony gives us a look into why we are the way we are and why we are so indecisive. We have all heard the saying, "be careful what you wish for because it just might come true." Kabbalah gives us something that not only helps us as individuals but helps all of mankind. From Chaos to Harmony shows us what we truly need to be wishing for and gives us the tools to begin the journey.

    The title says it all

    A fast, easy read. I also found it very relevant to the problems and struggles we are all facing. This book was written in 2006 and in that respect, this book is like a prophetic script begging us to open our eyes. Though this book is not an apocalyptic revelation of the end of the world. It is a practical account of why we have reached this point in humanities evaluation, not just financially, but with all of the globe's endeavors: socially, politically, individually & philosophically. The solution is in recognizing our connection with everyone and everything in a way we've never considered before we began to suffer. And further explains that we need to this on a scale that can actually reverse further suffering, by revealing a truer purpose; profound love and connection between everyone. If you've ever been curious about what Kabbalah is all about this book can put you on the right path and will offer an explanation for any crisis you may be experiencing.
