KEEP SMILING ~ Self-Growth, 7th Kislev, 5773

Disappear

Here is an ultimate secret to happiness and success: Cease to exist, disappear. In other words, throw out your personal desires and ambitions, and replace them with a genuine, burning wish for the welfare of others, for the happiness and success of others. Focus fully on the needs of others. Work for them — strive for them — dream for them — and forget that you exist.

Now, this doesn’t mean that you stop living. Rather, it means that when you eat, sleep, go on holidays, etc. you do so for others. How so? — You eat, sleep, and go on holidays that you may have the push and creativity to help and inspire others, and thereby improve their lot in life.

Can such living really make me happy, successful? — Taste it, and you’ll know.

Is such a way of life possible? — Try it, and you’ll see.

Does anyone actually live like this? — Yes, this is just how the Creator lives.

Motivational Quotes

Switch
How easily can we switch from one world to another? How smoothly can we exchange our noisy, busy environment, for a world of tranquil thoughts, a setting of serenity and light, calm and peace?

Often, we are guilty of spoiling even our quietest moments. We turn our attentions to the news or sports events, to music, eating, running around, shopping, traveling. Even the moments we give to prayer, we interrupt with noisy images and ideas. Thus, we turn away from the world of the spirit.

We need to look however, to do the opposite. We need to interrupt our hectic schedules, our mad activity, and give a moment to the heavens. We need to pause in the middle of the noise, and reconnect to the Creator — to the power of the world, to eternity. In this way, we draw success into our days.

Motivational Quotes

Shining Sun
My lover, my sweetheart, has a gift for me. He has hidden it just around the corner. He is waiting for something — a smile maybe, or a laugh, for me to clap my hands in joy, in anticipation. Then he will produce his gift.

The Creator is our lover, our sweetheart. He wants us to enjoy the life He gives us — as it is. Moreover, He has a special gift. He has hidden it just around the corner. He is waiting for something — a smile maybe, or a laugh, for us to clap our hands in joy, in anticipation. Then He will produce His gift.

Motivational Quotes

According to His Praises
“A person is who his praises” (Mishle 27.21). What we admire, speak about and praise defines our inner self. When we praise the rich and mighty, we understand that these are our true aspirations. When we praise those who do good and help others, this reveals our true self (Shaarei Teshuva 3.148). Accordingly, we remake ourselves when we change who we praise — who we take an interest in, think about and admire.
