Philosophy of George Soros: How We Inform Our Reality

Can you imagine living in a world in which you know that your thoughts are influencing the way that you perceive the world around you? Quantum physics supports this outlook, and billionaire George Soros’ life gives us a peek into the life of a real, live person who is actually living out this philosophy.

Soros describes his understanding of the way the world works with a term that he coined, called “reflexivity“. This term describes the way thoughts and events are reflected back on to each other in a feedback loop. Soros writes that “In social and political affairs the participants’ perceptions help to determine reality”.

What is it like to live with this outlook? Soros says that his theories about the way the world work, which are largely informed by discoveries of quantum mechanics as well as his own experience of the world. Although Soros does not know if the theories he supports are right (he actually doesn’t even believe that ultimate truth can be known), he does say that his theories about how the world worked have helped him achieve financial success.

Soros, now in his eighties, is still an active trader on the world markets. He has a deep understanding of world history, and a passion for understanding the political economic world arena. He is not a passive observer (and in his view there is no such thing!). Instead he actively participates using the understanding about the world that he has developed over the years. He is originally from Hungary, and has first hand knowlege of communist oppression and fascist powers. His unique upbringing instilled in him a great respect for open mindedness and freedom of expression. He teaches that all ideas are valid, and that a society should remain open to criticism if it wants to progress.

Throughout the years, George Soros’ influence, both intellectual and financial, has helped to shape the world around us. He has poured money into foundations that network accross twenty five countries and support the concept of open society. This is an intellectual ideal that was first named in a 1932 book. Soros has expanded onthe term “open society” and given it new life. He states that an open society can no longer be defined in oppostition to communism, as it once was. Instead, a modern view of what an open society should look like must be defined in ways that include the concept of capitalism. Capitalist ideals have become too strong and single-minded, according to Soros. He says that the laissez-faire economy that the US has modeled for so many years is faulty.

His philosophic views have steered his philanthropic efforts. Soros donates generously to the funds that support the ideal of an open society. He rejects the conservative movement and instead supports liberals who want to equalize wealth distribution. In 2004 he donated $27 million dollars towards organizations that might defeat Bush, and in 2016 he donated again, a stunning $25 million dollars in support of Hilary Clinton.

The latest event organized by Danilo Diaz Granados for his ever expanding list of clients took the group from the luxury and amazing architecture of Dame Zaha Hadid’s One Thousand Museum sales center where they enjoyed a gourmet breakfast, to the Palm Beach Race Track for an unforgettable auto racing experience. The final leg of the journey made during the Toys For Boys event took the men on a sunset cruise from the River Yacht Club, which brought to a close a day filled with helicopter rides and plenty of constantly flowing Dom Perignon champagne.

 

Try Kabbalah if You Seek Permanent Fulfillment

At some point in life, we feel that we are not as fulfilled as we ought to be. Ironically, the harder we try to realize that fulfillment, the more it evades us. Fulfillment does not mean a short-term feeling of happiness or experiencing brief senses of wellbeing but rather connecting to the energy and maintaining that connection to realize long-term fulfillment.
Kabbalah is an ancient model for living that teaches that all the branches of our lives including relationships, career, and health originate from the same root. Kabbalah is an ancient model of how the universe works at the core level. It teaches us to view the world in a way that can connect us to the sort of long-lasting fulfillment we seek.

Kabbalah teaches universal doctrines that apply to people of different faiths, religions, and ethnicities. What pushes most people to study Kabbalah is the fact that everyone has their own way of thinking and Kabbalah does not force anyone to think in a given way. Kabbalah only shares with you the Kabbalistic teachings and it is up to you to apply them to your life with the aim of improving it.

The Kabbalah Centre

The Kabbalah Centre is headquartered in Los Angeles, California. The non-profit organization offers lessons on the Zohar and Kabbalistic teachings online and through its physical centres across the world. This organization helps its students understand and apply Kabbalistic teachings to their lives. The Kabbalah Centre has professional multi-ethnic, international teachers that offer training and teachings to its worldwide student community.

History of the Kabbalah

The Kabbalah Centre International was founded in the U.S. in 1965 by Philip Berg (Feivel Gruberger) and Rav Yehuda Tzvi Brandwein. At the time, Brandwein was the dean of the precursor of the US Kabbalah Centres, Yeshivah Kol Yehuda (founded in1922). Philip Berg and his wife Karen Berg later re-established the U.S. Kabbalah Centre in New York after the death of Brandwein.

Originally The National Research Institute of Kabbalah, the organization has more than fifty branch offices worldwide with main ones in Los Angeles, London, New York City, and Toronto.
