How does it lead to blame the victim?

And for the record, when I got the answer, my reaction was: "That's just too esoteric for me."

I used to follow someone who "channeled" this sort of thinking, and they basically said that if someone had something bad happen to them it was because they were "vibrating" that and attracted it. I think Oprah used to follow similar teachings. I stopped paying attention to her years ago.

I can by that there is a type of karma... that you do get what you put out, one way or the other.

It's probably ... you know, I'm gonna link to it anyway just because this scene is on my mind a lot. Yes, Woody Allen is a creep. But this scene has everyone represented: The person who genuinely believes in G-d. The person that goes through the motions but doesn't believe. The person who thinks highly of the one that has faith. And the person who's a total nihilistic cynic who thinks that if you can get away with doing the evil, you're free. But I think the energy comes back to you.

Kabbalah isn't new age, it's ancient. With that being said, it's worth studying for the academic understanding of how religion has unfolded and developed across time.

Avoid the esoteric stuff, it's nonsense.

A Bracha is nothing more than simply saying thanks for the food. Yes animals eat, but most of them don't appreciate that food was made for them. We can appreciate it, and when we do, we're not ingrates.
