KEEP SMILING ~ Self-Growth, 8th Kislev, 5773

Pleasant Words

Speak pleasant words. Be Polite. Be Positive. Enjoy others, even those who seemingly hurt you. Avoid cursing others, even under your breath. Enjoy your life, even when it doesn’t go your way. Avoid criticizing, complaining about your surroundings. Don’t condemn what happens to you.

Our words are powerful — the most powerful tools we have. We can use them to mock, blacken and destroy even that which good. On the other hand, we can use them to repair, heal, develop even that which is weak and poor.

When we speak in rough, tough ways, we do more than hurt others, we hurt ourselves. We hurt our self-image. We prevent ourselves from reaching the greatness that awaits us. We are the first victims of the ugly words we speak. At the same time, we are the first to benefit from the pleasant, positive words we speak.

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.

Yedidah Cohen’s talks on Rabbi Ashlag’s Kabbalah, 30th Tishrei, 5771

Where I am and where I’d like to be

 
The body and the soul have three main channels to them,according to the way the Divine channels, the Sephirot, line up. These are the right hand line, the left hand line, and the middle line. Our consciousness also lines up similarly, the right hand line being the consciousness of wholeness and perfection, that all is just as it should be, and the left hand line being the consciousness of where I really am. Which consciousness should I focus on? Which one is more real?

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.

Loving G-d talk 2:
Loving G-d as Noah did or as Abraham did

 
Noah walked with G-d; that is he needed G-d’s support in order to come to love the One. But Abraham walked on ahead, says the Bible, and was whole. Whole in love. What does it mean for us today to love G-d in the way that Noah, the father of humanity did, or as Abraham did?

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.

Food and Clothing
Do you have a food to eat? Yes? So, be happy. Do you have clothes to wear? Yes? So, be happy. Can you breathe? Yes? So, be happy. Are you alive? Yes? So, be happy.

That’s it. We really need no more. If we can focus on what we have — no matter how little it is — we can stop complaining, and just be happy.

Motivational Quotes

Enjoy Others
Look at the children playing in the garden. Doesn’t this give you pleasure? Surely, you can delight in their beauty, their simplicity? Surely, you can enjoy their laughter, their fun?

Look at old people, resting in their places. See worn hands resting on shining walking sticks. See lived-in faces with deep, warm eyes staring into the distance, gazing into an uncertain future. Surely, you could hug such a person?

So far, the exercise has been easy. Now, let’s take it one more step.

Start looking at all people in a new way, in a happy way. Some of them dress well, others are a little shabby; some are handsome, others are quite plain; some are easy to talk to, others are distant. Still, we can enjoy them all. We can take pleasure in their presence. We can see them as our friends, and wish them happiness and success.

Motivational Quotes

A Favorite Friend
If a favorite friend gave you a gift — a gift that cost him thought and time, effort and money — you would be grateful. Even if you did not understand this gift, even if it did not suit your tastes, still you would thank him. You wouldn’t want to injure his feelings.

We must do no less then with the gift of life — the gift the Creator extends to us. We may not understand this gift — it may not suit our tastes — still, we say thank you. We don’t want to injure the Creator’s “feelings”.

Moreover — we must know — that if the Creator himself — the billionaire of all billionaires, the Creator of all creators, the Genius of all geniuses, the Kindness of all kindness, the Love of all love — gives us this gift, it must contain great value. There must be a prize beyond what we realize — a worth beyond what we know buried in this gift. We need to unlock its secret — its excitement and greatness — and find the treasure of life.
