The Kabbalah Centre Blog is happy to present a special piece by Yehuda Berg, who recently traveled to South America to meet with influential figures and leaders. Here is his personal account of one such meeting.
Approximately one year ago, a Dr. Federico Franco invited me to visit him in Paraguay. For whatever reason, our schedules never were in sync, but we kept in regular contact. Then a little over two months ago, when former President Fernando Lugo was impeached, my friend Dr. Franco was appointed to become the President of Paraguay.
Last Monday, the President and I finally had a chance to sit down with each other for our first of what I hope will be many in-person conversations.
“I know that it is because of your prayers that I am President today,” he said, “and I am asking that you continue praying for me to do my work for my country.”
President Franco went on to say he knows the Light is involved in everything. He feels it is not a coincidence that he has been given a chance to influence so many.
I was graciously introduced to the judges and the head of the Supreme Court there as well. Would you believe they also read the Daily Tune-Ups? They were kind and friendly, inviting us to visit anytime, as I invited all of them to please come visit us as soon as possible.
It was only a few years ago that there were no people in powerful political positions studying Kabbalah or scanning Zohar – and only a few years before that the wisdom and tools were not accessible to the masses. The mere thought of someone like the President of Paraguay scanning Zohar seemed impossible, but because of the work of my mother, Karen Berg, and my father, The Rav, there are countries now being led by students of Kabbalah.
The Rav and Karen knew… that nothing is impossible.
The more we believe in the spiritual work we do, the more people in power will be led to this source of consciousness. Imagine true leaders recognizing their Opponent; not being reactive, seeing what is best for the whole and following through with the necessary changes to make the world a better place.
The people of Paraguay are as warm and beautiful as their country.
Thank you for welcoming me with open arms.
All the best,
