Be Polite

By Rabbi Avraham Tzvi Schwartz

Brisk

Respect others and they will respect you. Love others and they will love you.[1]

But we have problems with this teaching:

     1)       Others don’t always return our kindness, our affection.

     2)       This leaves us feeling worse about ourselves – a little put-down, a little inferior.

We need two ideas here:

     1)       Many people don’t know how to be polite, considerate – they don’t realize that they could, should, pretend a concern for others. Therefore, they throw our friendliness, our compliment, back into our faces – and hurt us. Still, mostly, they do this only from ignorance.

     2)       What helps more than being nice to others, is thinking nice thoughts about them. Sometimes, it pays to greet people in a brisk way. Sometimes, it even pays not to greet them at all. Then, we may compensate this “lack of regard” with a kind thought. As we move away, we could say to ourselves, “I love him or her – together with all the people in my world.”

Todays eMussar Lesson 19th Av 5769

 

Today 19th Av, 5769 – eMussar Lesson –
Our Inherent Love for HaShem

Todays eMussar Lesson

eMussar – The Wisdom of Personal Growth
A daily inspirational, concise idea, with a suggested action.

AROUND THE SHABBOS TABLE\PARSHAS EIKAV

A straightforward reading of the verse (Devarim 11:13) that we read every day in Krias Shema seems perplexing: “If you continually hearken to My commandments that I command you today, to love HaShem…” Is “to love HaShem” the sum total of what HaShem requires of us? Aren’t there 613 commandments?

King Dovid said “My soul knows very much” (Tehillim 139:14), meaning, the human soul is inherently wise, i.e., it knows HaShem. However, the material element of the body intercepts and hides our inner light. Therefore, HaShem gave us the Mitzvoth, which protect the soul from the impure influence of the material elements.

The Talmud (Shabbos 152b) presents a parable that alludes to this: “A king distributed royal garments to his servants. The wise among them stored it in a chest, whereas the fools wore them while they did their work. Subsequently, the king requested his garments that He had distributed. The wise ones returned them to him clean, while the fools returned them soiled. The king was pleased with the wise but angry with the fools. So too, HaShem gives us souls. In the future He will collect them. If we return them clean we will be rewarded, but if we return them soiled they must be purified.”

The entire purpose of Torah is to protect the soul so that it remains pure and holy. As long as the soul is protected through Mitzvah observance, it naturally is drawn to its source. Hence, it is filled with love for its Creator, for it was formed from the Divine element.

Now we understand the verse from Krias Shema: “If you continually hearken to My commandments that I command you today” – the soul will revert to its natural state – “to love HaShem.” Hence, the fulfillment of all the Mitzvoth awakens love within the soul of man – the very purpose of creation.
[Based on Da’as Torah of Rabenu Yerucham HaLevi]

TODAY: Awaken the natural love of HaShem that is rests within your soul.

By Rabbi Zvi Miller.

DIVINE LIGHT 19th Av 5769

 

DIVINE LIGHT – 19th Av, 5769

The Baal Shem Tov Times

The Mystical Light of the Baal Shem Tov

Section 19.

When the Baal Shem Tov first took up residence in Mezibush, several of the local rabbis opposed his teachings and his way of practicing Judaism. These same rabbis visited him during the holiday of Succos and told him that his succah was not built in accordance to Torah law. The Baal Shem Tov argued that his succah was kosher. Then, he rested his head in his hands for a few moments. When he lifted his head and opened his hands, he held a piece of parchment. On the parchment was written, “The succah of Rabbi Yisrael Baal Shem Tov is kosher. Thus says Matat, the Prince of the Countenance.”

That parchment was inherited by the Baal Shem Tov’s grandson, the holy Rabbi Moshe Chaim Ephraim of Sudilkov. Whenever someone became ill, he would tell the family to place the parchment under the sick person’s head. The person would immediately recover.

This practice continued for two years. The parchment was put under the pillow of every sick person and he or she would immediately get better. During the entire two-year period, not one person in the city of Sudilkov passed away.

One day, they put the parchment under the head of a sick person, and it disappeared. Reb Moshe Chaim explained that it had been revealed to him that Heaven was not pleased with what he was doing, for all those born must eventually die. Therefore, he had prayed that the parchment be taken back.

I heard from honest people who heard directly from the Tzaddik Rabbi Yoskie, the grandson of Rabbi Moshe Chaim Ephraim, that he personally saw the parchment in his grandfather’s possession.
From a Letter of the Rabbi of Mezibush

Today 19th Av 5769 Little Mitzvos

 

Today 19th Av, 5769 – “Little Mitzvos

Little Mitzvos Org

You may think, how does one little Mitzvo help . . .

Our times are calling out to us to do Teshuva, but it’s too hard for us to change our lives. Even when we try, we end up reverting back to nothing, everything as was. We MUST show HaShem that we are seeing the signs and that it means something to us.

In this way, when HaShem asks what did we did, we can reply “I took this on…”

You must not consider this “Little Mitzvos” as a replacement for the Shulchan Oruch – you must continue learning Halochos via mainstream Seforim and with Shiurim.

Moving a Vase of Not Fully Opened Flowers on Shabbos

Although cut flowers in a vase can no longer grow and therefore there is no problem of Zorei’a, there can still be a problem on Shabbos if they are the kind of flowers that open and have not yet fully done so. The Bris Olam holds that you may not move the case since the moving of the water can spur the opening of the flowers, which would be assur. The Shalmei Yehuda in the name of Rav Elyashiv says that you may move the vase gently, trying not to move the water. (Piskei Tshuva 336:7)

Important Note: We try to convey the Tshuva to the best of our ability. We admit that our understanding may not be accurate. Please also understand that this Tshuva may not be the final word on this topic. One should consult a Rav before drawing any conclusions.

The Epitome Of “Cool”

Some of us are obsessed with being “cool”. It is the ultimate title conferred on someone in their lifetime. More often than not we do all the wrong things to try to earn that title. Here’s something that you can do that will make you one of the coolest people on the planet.

There has always been a mystique attributed to secrecy and privacy. This is a trait of some really cool people. Think about how cool you would be if no one would ever know what you thought about another person. How cool would it be for people to always guess what you thought about last night’s speech, chasuna, etc., and never really know because you never gave away your opinion in words or even by facial expressions.

I think you’d get lots of votes for the coolest person around, and more importantly, Hashem’s as well. What’s really great is that although titles don’t go with you to the grave, after 120 you’d continue to be “cool”. That’s important because it can get really hot up there!

“Zachor Eis Asher Asa Hashem L’Miriam BaDerech B’Tzaischem MiMitzrayim”

The Ramban and other Rishonim count, among the Mitzvos Aseh Min HaTorah, the mitzva of remembering and saying with your mouth each day what Hashem did to Miriam when she spoke about her brother Moshe. The Chofetz Chaim in Shaar Tvunah Perek 12 says that being Mikayem this mitzva can save you from the aveira of Lashon Hara. More than just saying the pasuk, says the Chofetz Chaim, one must think about the incident in order for it to have its intended effect.

GuardUrEyes


A website for Jews struggling to maintain their moral purity in today’s world

Why is Sexual purity so important in Judaism? Our sages called Shmiras Habris “Yesod”, meaning “Foundation”. The foundation of a building is “underground” and no one sees it, yet it holds up the entire building! Shmiras Habris is the hidden part of a Jew, it’s the real you. If the foundation of a Jew is weak, his whole spiritual structure is fragile and in grave danger of collapse. At guardureyes.com we are finally joining together, for ourselves and for all future generations, to strengthen the foundations of our people!

There is a lot of material out there on the subject of guarding the eyes and the Bris, but sometimes “too much” is overwhelming.
A little bit each day is just right, to be able to read, digest and apply it to our lives.

The booklet “Windows to the Soul” by R’ Zvi Miller of the Salant foundation, is a MAN’S PRACTICAL GUIDE TO MASTERING HIS EYES. (Right click the link and choose “Save Target/Link As” to save the PDF booklet to your computer). To subscribe to eMussar, the daily lessons of the Salant Foundation, send email to salant@netvision.net.il

The Zohar compares this world to a churning ocean and the body of a man to a ship in the sea. Therefore, man requires knowledge in order to guide himself on a straight course, avoiding mishap and losing his way. The ocean of life roars fearfully and continuously. The winds of challenge blow and the negative impulse rips about like a tornado with unimaginable force. All of life comprises great and endless tests, which can easily capsize the ship and sink it into the murky, nethermost depths.

Yirat Shamayim and the study of Mussar will prevent the body from sinking into the miry depths of desire and corrupt character traits.
(Rabbi Yitzchak Blazer, Ohr Yisrael)

TWENTY TIPS AND TECHNIQUES FOR SHMIRAT EINAYIM

(Tips 13 – 16)

13. KIDDUSH HASHEM

As a member of Klal Yisrael, you represent Hashem in the world. Conduct yourself in a way that inspires others to act with decency and goodness.

14.   MY FATHER, MY KING

I am a Ben-Melech (son of the king). What would Hashem tell me about controlling my eyes from seeing improper sights?

15.   THE AVOT

How would Avraham, Yitzchak, and Yaacov conduct themselves when walking in public?

16.   DIALOGUE WITH HASHEM

Speak with Hashem whenever you need His help. He is there for you, come close to Him.

WISDOM CAN ONLY BE LOWERED TO A CERTAIN POINT – IF YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND IT READ IT OVER TWO THREE TIMES AND THINK ABOUT IT

The difference between being in the klipah and being intentionally evil

–  Most people alive at this time are deep into the klipas.
–  There are many different types of klipas.
–  This does not mean that they are evil. They do not know any better or do not know how to get out of them.
–  Many people do good deeds and they will get rewarded for them.
–  However since thy are in klipas they will never transcend their low state of existence.
–  Evil is when person is consciously aware of what he is doing. He knows what evil is, and he does it anyway.

Perek Shira: The Fox Sings – Whose Assets Are You Leveraging?

The sly fox is a shrewd crook. He never produces anything himself, he’d rather just take from others through trickery. He doesn’t even have a home. He finds himself a cave where rodents and insects live and chases them out and makes himself comfortable. However his trickery catches up with him and he eventually falls into his own trap. To catch the fox the hunter sets up a fake cave equipped with a trap. When the fox devilishly makes his way into the cave he is finally caught and his life of injustice is over. (HaKol Yishabchucha – Birchas HaShir)

This is the meaning of the pasuk in Yirmiya (17:11), says the B’Soraso Yehgeh. “Korei Dagar V’Lo Yalad, Oseh Osher B’Lo Mishpat, BaChatzi Yamav Ya’azvenu”, the Dagar bird whistles and all the chicks follows him thinking the Dagar is their mother. However when they get older they will realize the truth and leave the Dagar empty.

Some people prefer not to build anything on their own. They prefer to sit idly while others build. Then they set their eyes on fruits of other peoples’ labor and scheme to take it from them through cunning and guile. Any scheme based on trickery will eventually collapse. Then all that you have amassed from others will disappear, leaving you caught like a fox in a fake safe haven.

The fox sings (Yirmiya 2:13), “Hoi Boneh Baiso B’Lo Tzedek”, woe is to the one who builds his fortune bereft of any sense of justice. This unjust wealth will eventually become his downfall.

Tikun Habris 19th Av 5769

 

Tikun Habris – 19th Av, 5769

True Kabbalah org

Tikun Habris is the most important topic to discuss in this low generation, and no one is dealing with it.

If you are Jewish then you are part of the Holy nation. Have mercy on your holy soul and stop blemishing it with the sin of wasting seed. Take heed of what the kabbalah says and stop committing this sin of wasting seed.

Rebbe Nachman of Breslev on Shmiras Habris

These are only the basic references about Tikun Hbris. The torahs have a lot more about this topic. We strongly suggest that everyone learn Likutay Maharan.

Every one of the seventy nations excels in one bad trait. The cumulative evil of all seventy bad traits is the desire for Niuf. By abolishing it one does a general rectification. Who ever brakes this desire will easily be able to break the rest of his bad traits.

[Likutay 1 Torah 36]

Hassid bar

A Wonderous Segulah to rectify oneself and to rectify Nefesh Ruach and Neshama. Culled from the Holy ARIZALs works to be said every day after prayers.

Tikun Mem Ches from the Tikunei Zohar has the Segulah to bring that which is precious and holy out of what has fallen into spiritual darkness and to rectify the sins related to the Bris Kodesh.

Whomever says it will be worthy of many wonderous things relating to body and soul.
