Todays eMussar Lesson 15th Elul 5769

 

Today 15th Elul, 5769 – eMussar Lesson –
A Case of Sincere Repentance.

Todays eMussar Lesson

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

THE PARABLES OF THE BEN ISH HAI

One night, under the cover of darkness, a man made his way to the royal treasury. He took out a shovel from his pack and began to dig. After a few hours of work he reached an opening, and climbed inside. He immediately, began to feel his way around, searching in the darkness for treasures to steal. Much to his dismay, he did not find anything, whatsoever. Unbeknownst to him, he had reached the corridor to the treasury and not the treasury, itself. After a few hours of futile searching, the rising sun began to shine upon the earth. He had no choice but to make his exit, empty-handed, before he was a discovered by the guards.

That same night, a different man approached the royal treasury from the opposite direction. However, luck was with him – the tunnel that he dug lead right into the vault. He lowered himself inside and began stuffing his pockets and sacks with gold, silver, and gems. As he was about to leave, his conscience started to bother him: “How can you steal from the king. You owe your life to him. You should love and honor him even more than you love and honor yourself.” Hence, he put back everything he had taken and left the treasury.

In the morning the royal guards discovered the excavations and started an investigation. Before long they apprehended both of the alleged thieves. When the first man was called before the king he said, “I intended to steal from your treasures. The only thing that stopped me was that I could not find them.” The king ordered him to be imprisoned. Then the second was brought before the king and said, “Your majesty, I confess that intended to steal from the royal treasury. I succeeded to break in and filled my pockets with a priceless fortune. But then I deeply regretted my actions. I asked myself, “How could you steal from the king? Shouldn’t you love and revere him. Far be it from you to do anything that would displease the king!” And so I returned all the jewels and beg for your forgiveness.” The king granted him special gifts and sent him home in peace.

So too, there are too types of repentance: [1] repentance that is awakened from fear of judgment, and [2] repentance that is awakened by one’s love of HaShem. Although both forms of repentance are praiseworthy, repentance that is inspired from love awakens great favor in Heaven for the penitent. HaShem grants him special blessings and reward. Not because he elects not to sin, for he is bound to comply with the laws of the Torah. Rather, the genesis of his special reward is awakened because his reason that he did not sin was not based on his fear of getting caught, but rather by his love for HaShem.

TODAY: Reflect on how you owe every second of your life to the kindness of HaShem.

By Rabbi Zvi Miller.

Daily Writings on Kabbalah and Torah – 15th Elul, 5769

True Kabbalah org

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

In regards to Shaul asking a prophet about his donkeys.

–  Other nations had diviners and used various methods of black magic to receive such answers.
–  Meaning, we had to have a replacement from the side of holiness.
–  One was able to ask a prophet even monetary issues.
–  One of the reasons prophets were called seers in those days was for this reason. As the generations got lower they served only as conveyers of G-D’s message and were called prophets.

Two Tzadiks

ON GOOD AND EVIL

“Rabbi Pinchas of Koretz entered the House of Study, and his disciples fell into a profound silence. He asked: ‘What were you talking about just now?’ ‘We were saying how afraid we were that the Yetzer [hara, evil inclination] will pursue us.’ ‘Don’t worry,’ said he. ‘You haven’t reached that point yet. Right now, you are still pursuing it!’”*

HITBODEDUT MEDITATION AND PERSONAL PRAYER – Hitbodedut at night

The main time for Hitbodedut is at night. Seclude yourself and express yourself to G-d. Speak with all your heart and search out the goodness in your soul. Find the good points that are inside you and cleanse them of all evil until you pour out your heart like water before G-d. This is the way to subdue all lust and desire and attain true happiness. You will develop a good memory, and thus you will constantly remember the world to come, never losing sight of the end goal and purpose of this life. This is the way to repent and return to G-d.

Likutey Moharan I, 54

Rabbi Nachman of Breslov
“It is a great mitzvah to be happy.”

From our Sages on the Parshah

 

Chabad

Parshah: Ki Tavo Verses: Deuteronomy 26:1-29:8

And He brought us to this place, and gave us this land (Deut. 26:9)

The Holy Temple was built by King Solomon in Jerusalem hundreds of years after the people took possession of the land under Joshua. The verse’s order should therefore be reversed — “He gave us this land, and He brought us to this place”!

But here we have an allusion to that which the Targum Yonatan relates: that on the first Passover (while still in Egypt) the Children of Israel were carried on “wings of eagles” (see Exodus 19:4) to the Temple Mount, where they brought the Passover offering.

(Etz Chaim)

Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out (28:6)

May your departure from the world be as free of sin as was your entry into the world.

(Rashi)

Breslev Israel
 

Akavya ben Mahalalel said: Reflect upon three things and you will not come to sin. Know from where you came and where you are going and before whom you are destined to give account and reckoning. From where have you come?–from a putrid drop. Where are you going?–to the place of dust, worm, and maggot. Before whom are you destined to give account and reckoning?–before the supreme King of kings, the Holy One, blessed be he.

Tikun Habris 15th Elul 5769

 

Tikun Habris – 15th 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.

When one reaches levels of happiness, then G-D himself helps him be Shomer Hbris. The main cause of Pgam Hbris is depression. The known Klipah that is called Lilis, because she is always whining, causes Pgam Hbris. Whining stems from Sadness. Therefore the main part of Shimras Hbris is to be happy. By being happy one merits that G-D himself helps him be Shomer Hbris, as mentioned above.

[Likutay 1 Torah 169]

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.
