Madonna: 'I found an answer'

Madonna writes about her journey into world of Kabbalah for Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth today:

There is an old cliché: When the student is ready the teacher appears.
I had traveled the world many times over, performed in soccer stadiums, appeared in films, dined with state leaders, collaborated with great artists and achieved what most people would view as a high level of success but I still felt something was missing in my life.
I was pregnant with my daughter, almost 14 years ago and I had just finished the film Evita and realized I had spent my whole life worrying but myself, and that I would soon be responsible for someone else's life.
I was raised a catholic and my father was very religious but none of my questions ever really got answered when it came to trying to understand why people suffered in the world or what the meaning of life was all about.
And suddenly I thought, 'What will I teach my child about the important things in life?'
I was practicing Yoga for years and studying Sanskrit. I had read many books by the great Yogi Masters and Indian Avatars. I studied Buddhism and the teachings of the Dali Lama. I studied Taoism and the Art of War.
I read about the Gnostics and the early Christians. I learned a lot and I was very inspired but I still could not connect the dots and find a way to take this knowledge and apply it to my daily life.
I was looking for an answer.
I went to a dinner party in L.A.
A woman sitting next to me was telling me about a class she was taking from a Rabbi.
She said it was so inspiring and that I should come along. I asked her what it was about.
She said 'Life.'
I asked her what it was called.
She said 'Kabbalah.'
I told her I wasn't Jewish and she said: 'What difference does it make what it's called and what religious upbringing you have had if you are inspired?'
She had a point.
So I went to the class and sat in the back and I listened to a man named Eitan teach the class.
I heard what he had to say and I knew at this moment my life would never be the same.
