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.
