Todays eMussar Lesson 5th Elul 5769

 

Today 5th Elul, 5769 – eMussar Lesson –
The Powerful Faith of Israel

Todays eMussar Lesson

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

PARSHA INSIGHTS\THE SAGES OF MUSSAR

The fundamental axiom of the Torah rests on two pillars that comprise faith in the Oneness of HaShem: 1) to believe that HaShem is the Creator of the universe; 2) to believe that HaShem oversees every second of our life, He is with us every place we go, and He sees our actions and knows our innermost thoughts. In light of this principle, we can understand the reason that there is a radical difference between the armies of the nations, in contradistinction to the Jewish army as ordained by Toras HaShem.

The armies of the other nations operate on the assumption that the stronger and smarter the troops, the better the army. Whereas, the perspective of the Torah army is that their success is dependent exclusively on HaShem. Dovid HaMelech expressed this dichotomy in Tehillim: “Some [nations trust] in chariots, and some [nations trust] in horses, but we – in the name of HaShem, our G-d, we call out!”

Therefore, when a Jewish soldier is newly married, no matter how important his military role – he is exempt from serving in the army, even in a time of war. Rather, he is required to stay home and develop a joyous relationship with his new wife (Devarim 24:5). However, in the armies of the other nations, the priority is getting every capable man into the battle. Hence, even if his wedding took place the night before, the groom is expected to follow orders and go off to war the next morning. Since, they pin their hopes on the ability of their troops to wage the battle; it would be preposterous to grant exemptions to any able-bodied members of their army – including the newly married.

Conversely, Klal Yisrael deliberately takes measures to disengage any notion that victory is dependent upon the performance of its soldiers. For instance, Gideon led the army that defended ancient Israel against the attack of Midian and Amalek. Although he raised an army of some 30,000 fighter men, ultimately HaShem instructed him to pare his force to a mere 300 men!

From a Torah perspective, we have a better chance of victory with 300 men than 30,000. Indeed, HaShem told Gideon to minimize his forces “lest Yisrael will grow proud and proclaim, “The power of my own hand saved me.'” Similarly, in the army of King Saul, the only soldier who carried a weapon was King Saul, himself!

Nothing is more disheartening for a bride than to watch her husband going off to war. After all their efforts to unite in marriage nothing should deprive them of the opportunity of this joyous time in their lives. The Torah has the sensitivity – and the faith – to grant the groom a one year exemption, so that he can devote himself to filling his wife with happiness.
[Based on Da’as Torah of Rabenu Yerucham HaLevi, parshas Ki Tatzei]

DIVINE LIGHT

 

DIVINE LIGHT – 5th Elul, 5769

The Baal Shem Tov Times

The Mystical Light of the Baal Shem Tov

Section 21.

Rabbi Yitzchak Isaac of Komarno (1766-1834) said that my teacher and father-in-law, Rabbi Avraham Mordechai of Finshtov, had told him that one of the disciples of the Baal Shem Tov asked the Rebbe, “What will be my livelihood?”

The Baal Shem Tov responded, “You will be a cantor.” The surprised disciple exclaimed, “But Rebbe, I can’t sing!”

The Baal Shem Tov replied, “I will bind you to the World of Melody.”

The man became the greatest cantor in the world. Once, this cantor came to Rebbe Reb Elimelech of Lizensk (A disciple of the Maggid of Mezritch, 1717- 1787). An intense discussion ensued between the Rebbe and his son, the Tzaddik Reb Elazar, over whether or not to honor the cantor with leading the Kabbalas Shabbos service. Reb Elimelech was afraid that the cantor would disrupt him from the state of holiness he normally experienced during the Shabbos prayers.

Finally, they decided to honor the cantor and his two accompanists with leading the Kabbalas Shabbos service. Their decision was a result of their great awe of the Baal Shem Tov, for the cantor was known as “the Cantor of the Baal Shem Tov.” Out of respect for the Baal Shem Tov, they decided to honor him, and whatever would be, would be.

When the cantor and his two accompanists began to sing the prayers to welcome Shabbos, Reb Elimelech sent word that the second accompanist should stop singing, and only the cantor and the remaining accompanist should continue. Afterward, he ordered even the cantor and accompanist to stop, for he was afraid that he would be annihilated in the Divine light emanating from their singing.

“On subsequent Shabbosim, Reb Elimelech showed honor to the cantor, but because of his fear, he would not allow him to pray before the congregation.”
From the Manuscripts of Rabbi Yitzchak Isaac of Komarno

Today 5th Elul 5769 Little Mitzvos

 

Today 5th Elul, 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.

Rav Chaim Kanievsky & Pele Yo’etz: Can You Eat Before Feeding Your Children?

It is forbidden to eat prior to feeding one’s animals. How about eating prior to feeding your young children? The Pele Yoetz says that if one may not eat before the animals certainly it is forbidden to eat prior to feeding your young children who are dependent on you for their food. However R. Chaim Kanievsky Shlit’a says that the Pele Yoetz is only saying that b’Derech Musar, but Mi’Ikar ha’Din one may eat before the children as the Halachah only applies to animals, not to children.

Zechiras Miriam

Stop Loshon Hora
Stop Loshon Hora

Parshas Ki Seitzei: Ramban – Miriam’s Shame Is Recorded

The Ramban at the end of Parshas Ki Seitzei writes (25:18) regarding the mitzva of Zechiras Miriam, you must tell the story of Miriam to your children and it should be passed down from generation to generation. Why would it be a mitzva to embarrass Miriam for all generations? The Ramban says that in Miriam’s honor the Torah should have hid this incident, however since this is such a widespread evil, it is worthwhile to publicize the incident in order that the severity of it be known to all.

Since every mother does not want to see her children make the same mistake as her, maybe this is the greatest zechus for Miriam that the memory of her name will prevent aveiros for all future generations. Yehi Zichra Baruch.

“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.

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 of the Soul” by R’ Zvi Miller of the Salant foundation, is a MAN’S PRACTICAL GUIDE TO MASTERING HIS EYES.

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)

Today’s Shmiras Ainayim Chizuk

Saying no

Never underestimate the value of each and every time you say ‘no’ to yourself. Sometimes a person is feeling weak and says to themselves, “what’s the difference if I look now at something that I know I shouldn’t? I’m anyway not feeling strong now”. You must believe in the significance of saying no every time, no matter for how long and no matter for what desire, be it a bigger sin or even a quick gaze at a woman. Tell yourself, “Now I will not look, now I will turn away. Later I may look, I may fall, but just for NOW I will be strong”.

Believing in the significance and importance of every time on it’s own is a powerful and proven method for making significant progress in the long term.

Everyone has different abilities depending on the tribe they represent. Let us all unify and work together in the battle against the Sitra Acher.

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

Regarding What Happens After Death

–  Know, nowadays people only use three to five percent of their brain.
–  The reason for this limitation is the klipos, another factor is the fact that the mind is attached to a physical body.
–  When a person dies he loses this limitation and gains full awareness.
–  A person has millions of signals entering his mind every second these are normally blocked out by the jamming signals of the brain.
–  When a person suddenly gains such awareness it is an overwhelming experience he can not control it the only thing he can focus on is his body.
–  A person watches as his body as it rots, this is a very painful experience. In addition his awareness has now been greatly increased, it is no longer interrupted by all the other signals.
–  This is called Chibut Hkever.
–  When a person can finally learn to focus away from his body his awareness is then shot from place to place. He is never able to focuses or gain composure, this is also very painful.
–  This is called Kaf Hkeleh (sling shot)
–  When one finally adjusts to this state of mind, he is greeted by all the evil spirits he created through his sins.
–  These beings, angles of destruction then afflict immense punishment upon the person until he is worthy of being cleaned in Gehenom (purgatory).

HITBODEDUT MEDITATION AND PERSONAL PRAYER – The spider’s web

You want to speak to G-d but find it hard? You are like a warrior who girds his loins to overcome a mighty wall but when he comes to the gate, he finds it blocked with a spider’s web. Could anything be more foolish than to run away from the battle because the gate is covered with a spider’s web?

The main thing is speech. With speech you can win every battle. It is possible to meditate in thought, but the most important thing is to express yourself in words.

You may find it difficult to speak to G-d. You may also find it difficult to speak to a true Tzaddik. This is only because you are shy and lethargic and lack sufficient boldness.

This is silly! Here you are, ready to use your speech to overcome the great battle against the evil urge inside you. You are on the verge of victory: you are ready to break down the walls and open the gates with your words.

Should you hold back because of a minor barrier caused by a lack of confidence? This is nothing but a spider’s web covering the walls you want to break down with your words.

Tikun Habris 5th Elul 5769

 

Tikun Habris – 5th Elul, 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.

All the false charisma comes from the “False beauty.” Some one who is not careful about staying away from the beauty of women falls victim to these false charismas.

[Likutay 1 Torah 60]

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.

Self-Growth – Keep Smiling – 5th Elul, 5769

Self-Growth - Keep Smiling
 

An Art

Throw a ball to the sky. It rises higher, higher — then it begins to fall. It cannot escape the force of gravity. Similarly, we cannot escape our ingrained nature, our habits and attitudes. With effort and time though, we can improve all that we are.

Happiness is an art. We must learn it in theory, then through practice. The better we understand its tools, the better we may use them. True mastery however, requires skill and practice. A top musician trains daily to maintain and improve his level. In the same way, we must work daily to acquire happiness.

Excerpted from “Be Happy and Succeed”.

Have a growth-filled, uplifting day
