**Please note special day for this call to accomodate for our guest Moshe's weekly Shabbat practice.
"When you're open to meaningful coincidences, opportunities will present themselves to you all the time." Rabbi Moshe Gersht
Rabbi Moshe Gersht found himself at a pivotal decision point early in his life. At 18, he chose to leave school in response to a forced choice between pursuing his passion for music or graduating instead. It was at this crossroad and subsequent ones that he learned there are two things that shape our decisions: how we see ourselves and how we see the world.
"I wasn't walking about believing in accidents. There were no mistakes in the universe. I was looking for hidden opportunities wherever they could be found. When you're the one looking for silver linings you'll be the one who finds them", said Moshi.
By the age of 20, having "made it" as a pop-punk rockstar, Moshi found himself wondering what living a successful life actually entails. This question led him to Jerusalem, where he experienced a spiritual awakening. He went on to spend two decades in Israel immersed in Torah study, prayer, and meditation as well as the mystical teachings of Kabbalah and Chasidus.
In bridging his spiritual and mystical studies with an exploration of the inner landscape, Moshe brings a new energy to the journey of personal transformation. Today, he is an international speaker, a meditation guide, and spiritual teacher helping people find fulfillment through self-discovery. The spiritual journey is essentially a journey to ourselves, and in being true to ourselves we are able to live out our highest good. "My mission is to share the life-giving wisdom of unconditional love, by empowering [people] to awaken to a higher consciousness," he said.
Many of Moshe's talks share his uniquely holistic approach to a spiritual and fulfilling life. He is a Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author of several books including, It's All the Same to Me, a spiritual self-help guide endorsed by Deepak Chopra, and its companion journal. He also authored The Three Conditions: how Intention, Joy, and Certainty will Supercharge Your Life and the workbook, "The 5 Steps to Manifesting and Co-Creating Your Life".
Moshe grew up in an Orthodox household in Los Angeles (U.S.) and currently lives in Israel with his wife and their children, whom he believes he learns as much from as he shares with them.
Join us on Feb. 18 for a call with this compassionate spiritual guide.
I love life. I am truly in awe everyday at the miracle of this unbelievable existence. In the good and the challenging we are given this amazing gift. To be able to share my enthusiasm, inspire others to connect to the essence of themselves, to the essence of existences is my passion. To assist in the awakening of humanity towards a consciousness that is unified, loving, and infinite. To share in the joy of our nature and cultivate a kind, compassionate, and peaceful reality for all of us to experience together. To learn, study, pray, and meditate, have all been pathways towards this end, not any one of them being an end all and be all but grateful for each of those avenues. To share the light that comes through is the joy.
Always having a feeling that I want the close people in my life to love me, when I first left the band to study spiritually that was hard. But when I finally went back to my old band members to make peace and ammends and I was not well received. I was yelled at and ghosted and in the end left feeling a bit broken. The very next day after realizing i had taken care of my side of the street, forgiving myself for any unintentional pain i might have caused, I experienced a wave of relief, a "Jericho moment" where all the walls of fear in my energy came down and a freedom of "I don't care anymore" which meant "I don't fear anymore" came over me. Everything in my life changed after that moment. I let go of the need to be perceived a certain way and just leaned deeply into the truth of being.
There was a time in my life where we had nothing, we couldn't afford milk for our kids. Most people had no idea. Two people saw the challenge we were going through and without any warning or any request for something in return, transfered thousands of dollars into our account which allowed a level of relief that is indescribable. It truly allowed us to push through a dark time financially and the gratitude we feel to this day is beyond words.
Kiss my great grandchildren
