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!’”*
