The 72 Names of God

A long time ago, when I was in High School, I believe, I read an amazing story by Isaac Asimov which blew my mind. How could I know then that so many years later I would find out that Asimov must have known about the idea of the incredible power of the 72 names? Maybe he learned about it at the Kabbalah Centre? It just occurred to me that the story also uses the power of the computer to change the world. More about this later.

The foundation

Maimonides stated, in his monumental Mishneh Torah that, “The foundation of all foundations, and the pillar of all wisdom is to know that there is God… All the beings of the heavens, and the earth… came into existence only from the truth of God’s being.” This is a fundamental belief of Judaism, and in fact is the basis of all Kabbalist thought about God as the source and fundamental basis of all of creation and existence. Indeed, the Kabbalah is a universal philosophy and system of beliefs, as taught by the Kabbalah Centre and Rav Berg.

Berg’s courses

Michael Berg of the Kabbalah Center sends out online course material via email. He wrote, “We live in a world of cause and effect, with time creating space between action and reaction. That’s why the Light rarely comes in the moment we do something, positive or negative.”
Interesting. What he is saying is that there is a time delay between when you do something to when you get the full results of that action. This means that one must be patient so that he waits until the full ramifications – positive or negative – take place. Learn Kabbalah to further understand this.
