Does Lindsay Lohan Know Her Karma From Her Kabbalah?

“I would never steal anyone’s boyfriend. It’s bad karma, and I’m a big believer in karma–hence the fact that I’ve studied kabbalah. I’m very true to the ‘Treat people the way you want to be treated’ sort of thing.” –Lindsay Lohan

Hollywood’s favorite tabloid starlet appears on the cover of this month’s Elle magazine, disarmingly frank and honest about her experiences with the paparazzi, dating various men, visiting Iraq, and–surprise–religion, among other things.


Going the way of Madonna and Britney, Lindsay seems to embrace Kabbalah, a form of Jewish mysticism, as the faith that prevents her from committing relationship adultery. Problem is, Lindsay mistakenly points out Kabbalah helped her understand karma, a reincarnation concept usually associated with Buddhism and Hinduism.

Even though Madonna and Britney also flirted with Hinduism, Lindsay seems unaware of her religious gaffe. Still Lindsay seems to be having a true New Age, multifaith experience.

Aside from getting in touch with her spiritual side, L.Lo has also set Iraq as a top destination spot for her next trip out of the states:

ELLE: Any big plans for the next year?

I’ve been trying to go to Iraq with Hillary Clinton for so long. Hillary was trying to work it out, but it seemed too dangerous. I wanted to do what Marilyn Monroe did, when she went and just set up a stage and did a concert for the troops all by herself. It’s so amazing seeing that one woman just going somewhere, this beautiful sex kitten, who’s basically a pinup, which is what I’ve always aspired to be. So I tried to go there. I’m not afraid of going.


At 20, L.Lo’s desire to go overseas and entertain disheartened soldiers seems admirable, especially when she admonishes the paparazzi, “Stop writing about me and start writing about how people are dying overseas for our country!” Unfortunately, her confessed aspirations to be a pinup à la Marilyn Monroe is self-serving and unlike the enlightened mystic beliefs of Kabbalah… or karma.

Perhaps Lindsay should take a page out of Evangeline Lilly’s book. Raised as a Baptist and Mennonite, the “Lost” actress and May 2006 Elle cover girl seems to be truly making headway in her faith. As a former Sunday School teacher who would prefer to be stranded on a desert island with her Bible, Evangeline has traveled to Rwanda for missionary work and wept at the thought of being a sexy pinup girl. She also expresses hopes of imitating another Hollywood icon, albeit one who was known for her humanitarian work just as much as her acting: Audrey Hepburn.

    The tree of life is quite fascinating. The pillars, form a truth, as do the 10 points, and the pathways between them. Is it really fair to disassociate Karma from the tree of life, because they are from different religouse traditions? I’ve always thought of the three wiseman from the east in the nativity story as Lau Tzu, Confucius and Buddha. Universal truths are universal because they apply to all things.>
