Israel's richest woman?

Or the country's weirdest woman?

Now, it is true that we allow the rich to entertain ideas that the rest of us do not. They are, after all, insulated from the real world by their very wealth. But this idea that you might be getting visions from above, that the Almighty might be telling you what to do....no, this is kookiness, not just the eccentricity of the rich:

Shari Arison, Israel's richest woman and the controlling shareholder of the country's second-largest bank, said on Sunday she has visions and receives messages "from above," but they do not influence the management of her companies.

Fortunately, she doesn't actually manage any of the companies she owns. say fortunately, for look at the title of the books she's just releasing.

"Birth - When the Spiritual and the Material Come Together,"

Yup, barking. Rich and barking.

Spiritual and the Material

That's barking?

There is no metaphysical?
