Through this playful yet serious faux-bio, readers learn that Satan resides within everyone, manifesting himself as that nagging little voice of doubt and uncertainty, and that that's how havoc is wreaked throughout the world. By doing the spiritual work that Kabbalah teaches, readers can banish negativity and evil influences from their lives, and eliminate chaos from the world.

Jul 14, Linda Branham Greenwell rated it it was amazing Shelves: spirituality , jewish. I may have to think of a whole new shelf for this book. The word "Satan" really means adversary And he is inside of us.. Yehuda writes the book as if Satan is talking to us. Satan is trying to give us pointers, because he's been winning and he can see that we need help Yehuda writes the book in a way that is informative, enlightening, funny, and it is absolutely brilliant.
Satan tell us that our ego and our reactionary nature is what is keeping u I may have to think of a whole new shelf for this book. Satan tell us that our ego and our reactionary nature is what is keeping us in pain, doubt, suffering, and plain downright unhappy. Every decision and choice we have made knowingly or unknowingly has been the result of our selflish, self-serving ego.
It is time for us to share, to demonstrate with our actions that we "love our neighbor as ourselves". Satan, as our ego, has kept us from loving ourselves and others. How we treat our fellow man is the measure of success we will experience on this planet. You chose how you will live this life.
Everything that happens to you is contributing to you being a better you. Overcome your ego at every opportunity and in exchange you get true and lasting fulfillment and happiness It is one of those you have to read to understand Satan also asks us to begin by sharing the book with others so that everyone will begin to share and create a better world I'm sure that will be seen as a ploy..

Y es el ego lo que nos separa de la Fuente y de la Unidad. Jul 05, Michele Harrod rated it it was amazing. I think I have mentioned that I love all of Yehuda's work - now this, is a work of genius - I actually felt like Satan himself who is in fact, not an 'himself' but just your own big fat ego getting in the way of everything you do!!
This is a book that places the responsiblity for everything you do, or don't do, right back in your own hands - and the only enemy you have - is the very one within - your own ego. View 1 comment. Aug 08, Mary Karpel-Jergic rated it it was ok Shelves: religion-spirituality. Not sure what I expected from this book but I imagined it would have scored more than two stars from me. Bottom line, there is no horned devil, instead there is an evil, negative energy in the universe and it resides in each of us as our negative thoughts such as selfishness, anger and jealousy.
If we can become aware of this and work on eradicating our doubts and cynicism all will be better. The concept is interesting enough and not too dissimilar from the Buddhist practice of self awareness, h Not sure what I expected from this book but I imagined it would have scored more than two stars from me. The concept is interesting enough and not too dissimilar from the Buddhist practice of self awareness, however Buddhism and the concept of Enlightenment recognises the challenge in practicing this simple act of self-awareness.
Berg's idea that we feed Satan by having negative thoughts reminds me of the Cherokee story about the two wolves that continuously fight inside our heads. One is fearful and angry the other is peaceful and compassionate. Which one wins? The one we feed the most! No great insight here. Turn your pain into a learning experience, turn it into abundance and happiness. Recognise it as a test i. This sounds like positive psychology to me. I found the simplistic account of the birth of creation somewhat difficult to accept Berg would suggest that this is a manifestation of my doubt - my ego - my Satan and too much of an easy read.
Plus the solution - that we all need to share in order to create a better world - is commendable but lacking in any real analysis of our human condition. It was probably a poor choice of mine as a first book about the Kabbalah. I appreciate that it has a long lineage and a respected philosophical basis but it just didn't come across in this book.
Added to this is my disappointment in his request that we buy copies of the book to give to our friends and families as a way of sharing.
It reads like a cheap marketing trick and does little justice to any of the ideas outlined in the book. On another sour note, I Googled the author and was dismayed at the headlines of earlier this year. I hope that the matter gets resolved soon. Sep 28, Dario Alioscha rated it it was amazing. Pero para eso, tienes que ser abierto a las ideas del autor y de esta corriente del pensamiento de las cuales hablamos muchas veces sin pensar. Feb 03, Meg rated it really liked it. This book really took me by surprise and I really loved the cheeky way it was written.
I would recommend this to anyone no matter their beliefs,it really makes you take a hard look at yourself and take responsibilty for what's happening around you! Jan 22, Magda Marcella rated it it was amazing. Really good book on truly understanding what is standing in your way, how to overcome obstacles, and how to improve yourself. The crux of the book is overcoming our ego in order to find true happiness and success.
Niega algo y luego lo valida, contradictorio en varios pasajes. Sin embargo, tiene ideas rescatables. May 11, Marce rated it did not like it.
Nada nuevo, soso y repetitivo. Jan 07, Herbalteebag is currently reading it. Jul 28, Michael Weaver added it. Excellent allegorical perspective from Berg as he raises some rather overlooked, and very profound questions.
Sep 11, Marc rated it it was amazing. A very intersesting story of how the devil does his work with ego Do not be spooked out by the title! This book is funny, witty and laser-light on point making the history of religion s so clear! This book plays with your mind in the most riveting psychological way. The end result? Spoiler alert

However, after allegations of sexual assault and allegations of offering drugs from one of his students,   he stepped away from the organization. He was later found liable in a civil suit and ordered to pay damages to his victim for inflicting malice and intentional harm. Berg was an international speaker and author. One of his many books, The Power of Kabbalah , became an international best-seller  as did another of his books, The 72 Names of God. He served as co-director of the Kabbalah Centre International for many years; however, after running into legal problems related to allegations of sexual assault, the Kabbalah's Centre was re-organized, with his mother and brother as its leaders. Yehuda's wife teaches at the Kabbalah Centre still.
