I totally get that someone who is gay does not want to feel or believe being that gay equates to "a correction needed". Obviously that would feel offensive to a person who was gay, because as most people know, being gay is not a choice, you really are or are not or perhaps have attraction to both sexes, but it's not like you can flip a switch and choose it. But just to play devils advocate here, Kabbalah teaches us that we as souls come to correct many many things. And when we have corrected them all then we complete our corrections, and move into a phase that is really beyond our comprehension. This is a very rare thing, very few of us will in this lifetime, correct everything. Now what are we talking about? How about eliminating anger completely. Do you think thats an easy thing to do? And how about fear? Can someone say that they are completely not afraid of anything? The perfected Kabbalist can say yes to all these things. No fear, no anger, no ego, no desire for themself really, just a pure channel of caring and sharing that connects and is in perfect alignment to a power of the one soul that some call god, which only wants to love and care for others. So who is to say what that looks like. Is it possible that the manifestation of certain negative sexual actions result in a lifetime born as a homosexual? Who knows. All I know is that I was born with many traits I know I need to change. I have anger, I have jealousy, I have hate at times, I have negative thoughts, I have sadness, I have fear, I can go on and on. And what about judgement, thats a doozie and probably why so many homosexuals are turned off to anything that resembles religion in general. In my mind those are much more important things to overcome than my or anyone else's sexual orientation. So the question is where are you going to put your focus. Most of us will be lucky to overcome just a very small piece of any one of those issues. So worrying about someones sexual orientation (assuming it is something to be corrected and I'm not saying it is) is like deckchairs on the titanic sort of thing. I have been studying at the centre for several years and the one thing I know from my studies, a homosexual person is... A person. In the Torah we were reading the section about sodomy, and I looked at my teacher and said to him... Hey teach, so whats up with this section? Whats that about. He smiled and looked at me and said... There is a lot of light and are many secrets in this section, but first, "don't take it literally". At the centre one of the first and most important things they teach is not to judge. And that it is literally impossible for us to judge another in their process as it is a very individual thing. Each one of us have their own process and issues to work on to achieve that alignment with the source of creation. I have no idea what you have gone through in this or previous incarnations so who am I to judge your process. If a teacher is able to see a correction needed in a student then that is a very specific thing to that student, between him/her and that teacher. Are mistakes made? I imagine so as teacher have their process as well. They are just trying to bring their understanding of the wisdom and disseminate it the best they can as it has been taught to them. I know that their main job is to care for students and to help them with making them better people, and again it is a very individual thing. So sorry for the length here, and if I have offended any homosexual people reading this I very much apologize. All I can say is that I hope to see you at the centre where we can work on ourselves and work to help each other in this difficult world we find ourselves, and help to make each others lives better and more fulfilled.
