Day Thirty – SUMMATION – 12th Tishrei, 5771

Todays eMussar Lesson

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

DAY THIRTY:
“SUMMATION”

We have completed the path of preparation for repentance on Yom Kippur. Now we are ready to make a plan to study Mussar for the rest of the year.

The first task is to establish daily periods of Mussar study. These sessions should be about 15-20 minutes. It is helpful to connect them to an already existing habit. For instance, you may schedule your Mussar session before or after one of the daily prayer services or perhaps before or after one of your meals. Some people prefer to study Mussar as soon as they arise in the morning while others study it before they go to sleep at night. There is no standard time; rather every person must devise a plan that is most efficient for them.

A classic and successful method entails selecting a Mussar passage that relates to the aspect of growth that one wants to improve. The passage should be verbalized in order to arouse one’s emotions so that the Mussar will be internalized. Forming a group that meets on a regular basis to learn Mussar together is highly recommended. The synergy of the group helps to strengthen Mussar concepts among the group as well as in the individuals.

The incremental approach, a little bit each day, is the best way to successfully absorb Mussar and transform oneself. If you miss a day do not fret-just continue the next day. Eventually the study of Mussar will become a beloved routine, bringing you endless joy, inspiration, fulfillment, and holiness.

Select a Mussar book, such as: The Path of the Just, The Ways of the Righteous, Duties of the Heart, Tomer Devorah, and Ohr Yisrael. There are many other books and resources for you to choose from. For instance, The Salant Foundation publishes online, a daily, concise Mussar lesson, culled from a wide variety of sources.

To join the emussar list (free), or for any questions that you might have regarding Mussar, send an email to: miler23@netvision.net.il or call 786- 319 -4582.

May your daily study of Mussar evoke abundant Heavenly mercy for you and all Klal Yisrael. Together may we be inscribed in The Book of Life!

Implementation: Choose a Mussar book and make a daily schedule for study-and realize that by doing so you are giving Life to Your Soul.

In his conduct, he has injected his soul with a surefire remedy. Mussar is life itself! In light of this, HaShem will inscribe his name in The Book of Life!

Implementation: You are learning Mussar-and as you are learning–visualize your name being inscribed in The Book of Life.

Todays eMussar Lesson

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

True Love

THE AGADAH OF THE TALMUD

Rabbi Akiva taught that the verse, “Love your friend, like you love yourself,” is the primary axiomatic principle of the Torah. That is, love of others is the root of the Torah, from which all of its branches extend. Love of our fellow man is the core that powers every Mitzvah and its fulfillment.

The Alter of Kelm, Rabbi Simcha Zissel, offers a beautiful explanation of this verse. The verse tells us to “Love your friend, like you love yourself.” Therefore, in order to love others, you must love them in the same way that “you love yourself.”

A person naturally loves himself. He doesn’t need the Torah to command him to love himself. Just as we naturally love ourselves, the Torah instructs us to love others “naturally.” That is, he should not love them only because the Torah commands us to love them. No one wants to be “loved” by order of the Torah, because forced love is not sincere love.

Therefore, loving others is the one Mitzvah that should not be performed as “a Mitzvah.” Meaning we shouldn’t say, I love him because the Torah commands me to love him.” Rather, just as we automatically love ourselves, we should see the good in our friends and love them automatically – and naturally.

TODAY: Fulfill the axiomatic principle of the Torah by loving others – naturally.

Daily Kabbalah Tip
Advice in the daily Kabbalah lesson is recommended, practical tasks for advancing spiritually.

Being A Man (Adam)

What are the conditions to attain the level of “Man” (Adam)?

We do not know where we are exactly and which reality we should reach, because we can examine them only one against the other. To enable this process we are given two advices, two main conditions, which are a group and the study from Kabbalah books.

By the group we wish to connect together. We perform, so called, an action of getting out of ourselves to the state of “Man” (Adam). A Man is the one connected to others, who is in the attribute of bestowal. The Kabbalah books bring us the Light so that our imaginary tendency toward others will become a reality.

When these two conditions are met, we can attain the level of Man (Adam), who resembles the Superior.

Motivational Quotes

Do What You Like

Here is an awesome key to success: Do what you are best at doing, and leave the rest to the Creator.

For example, imagine that you are a good cook. Even though you live in a world that doesn’t want cooks — in a world where food is mass-produced — in a world that’s full of good cooks — ignore all this. Don’t look for a different occupation — especially when it’s something you don’t like doing — especially when it’s something you are not good at doing. Just cook. Find someone, somewhere, who will give you something for your labors. Then work to the best of your ability. And what of the future? Don’t worry. Leave it to the Creator.

This doesn’t mean that you don’t have to work hard. In addition to doing what you are best at doing, you need to do your best. Also, doing what you enjoy doesn’t mean that all will be easy and smooth. You will face tests — you will confront difficulties. But you’ll be the richer for one vital reason — you’ll be doing what you are most happy doing. As for the rest — with a little thought and a little faith — you will see that the Creator does it for you.
