This was somewhat inspired by a certain Chabadnik we both know. It says in the Talmud somewhere that a man should find a Rav and learn from him. Shabbat Shalom.

One Man's Happiness
He's coming home, the work is done for now
An average little house whose worth cannot be measured
Because there's more to life than wealth
No car, no big TV can equal happiness
True happiness is found in family
The door swings open and he sees her there
A wife whose smile is warmer than the sun
Whose love is without limits
Remember that she works as hard as you
And do not ever take this love for granted
He sees his child crawling on the floor
A little girl too young to stand alone
Her babble rarely forms a sentence
But her laughter fills the house
She hears a melody and falls asleep
Just like an angel ...
I pray to God that I can be this man
That there will come a day my searching will be over
That I survive these trying times and find a better world
Where honor and hard work are worth a damn
And men will prove that they are men by not running away
That I willl care about much more than just myself
That I will find a love that is worth keeping.

i go up to a guy and say lets do it lets put on teffilin and moshiach will come. he says no, its good for you, but for me i dont want. thats the world i do what i want and you do what you want. and no body tell any body else whats right and whats wrong.
people are so lost. terrorists are rewarded and the victim is the perpetrator. its Americas fault that the taliban flies planes into civilian buildings, and the jews fault that arab terrorists shoot missiles at civilians. and at the end of the day, as long as there is money in our bank account we really don't care who did what, to whom and for what reason.
we're living in a real fake world.
time for the youth to arise and do the right thing. the real right thing. the seven noahide laws.
1. BELIEF IN G-D
Do not worship Idols
2. RESPECT G-D AND PRAISE HIM
Do Not Blaspheme His Name
Do Not Murder
4. RESPECT THE FAMILY
Do Not Commit Immoral Sexual Acts
5. RESPECT FOR OTHERS’ RIGHTS AND PROPERTY
Do Not Steal
6. CREATION OF A JUDICIAL SYSTEM
7. RESPECT ALL CREATURES
Do not be cruel to animals.

so the Rebbe, he should be well, gave a prophecy in 1991 that "Behold, here he comes the Moshiach". I could not understand what kind of prophesy is this that here comes Moshiach! Lately I think have a bit of an understanding to the issue. all the events that happened since then and especially now, (since we are standing closer to the final and complete redemption), can be understood particularly well if we see them as events that bring closer the era of moshiach. Or at least as events that are being packed in right before Moshiachs coming. Here comes king moshiach means that first of all he is coming very soon, meaning it is relevant to those who are hearing the message, also it means we have to get ready and we should see that the world is now a world which is changing for the sake of moshiachs coming.
when i was in college i used to read world events and i thought to my self how is it at all possible to have an understand of where the world is going. every week seems like a whole new world already. the only way to see clearly the reality of the situation is w/the knowledge that G-d is changing around world all for the sake of the Jewish people and righteous gentiles that the world be fitting so we go out to greet moshiach. May it happen today.
what this means practically would take a long time to explain and talk about but, in a nut shell we all have to get closer to G-d and truth and goodness and kindness by learning Torah, halacha, nigla and especially chassidus from the Rebbe, because he is the one who pushed and is pushing the whole world and will soon lead us out to the true and complete redemption.
Yechi Hamelech HaMoshiach!!! Leolam Voed.

these cities were labeled very clearly and there were sign posts along the way which pointed to the cities. This Way To be Saved!
from the teachings of the Rebbe.

Happiness doesn’t come naturally, and it certainly is no quick fix. It is something that requires constant vigilance and effort on the part of a human being. In fact, I would venture to go so far as to say that the “natural” state of man is to feel heavy, weighed down by all types of concerns. The key is not to dwell on the negative. We all have problems and we all carry our own load. It is no challenge to point out all that is difficult in life. What we were created for is to overcome our obstacles and transform them into opportunities to grow and learn from. As a wise friend told me once – its no kuntz to find the schmutz – the key is to find the gold and the sparkle in everything. Every experience and every event we encounter is an opportunity for us to see the positive and extract it from the experience. We thus reveal that everything is ultimately for the good. In other words, the key to being is happy is to put on a special pair of “happy” glasses which sees the half cup full, not empty.

and that's only the beginning, because truly we want a world where our soul can shine and feel at home and at peace. where every single day one can feel better and be a better human being. a world where we know and thirst for the very hidden truths of the whole creation.
the jewish people never gave up on believing in such a utopia. in fact, we as a jews believe in the same utopia that the first jew, Abraham, believed in four thousand years ago! we build it by believing in the Almighty G-d and by doing good deeds. many, many good deeds. and of course learning the Torah a few minutes here and there.

drum roll ................. the meaning of life is.......
to make a dwelling place for the infinite God down here in our finite world. not only in the general world but as well as in our personal worlds our finite minds, and hearts. thereby reveling the Godliness within the mundane world. that's the meaning to all of life ! given to us by the creator of the world, God Almighty. He desired to create a world for reasons known only to him, and he gave the human being the job to show, reveal, uncover and to find God hiding so it were within creation. the more we reveal Him in the world and in our lives the closer we come to fulfilling our personal life purpose and goal. and that ladies and gentlemen is the meaning to Life! there is by the way a practical how to guide but perhaps more about that later in general we just have to do what God wants from us as enumerated in Gods lesson book to human kind the Holy Torah.

anyway what am i trying to say, nothing really, i am just thinking fine, the world has its interesting things and diff events happen, and people do seemingly new fun and exciting things, but intrinsically, is there any value to it. what are we getting so excited about? i mean how exciting can it be if for someone else it is meaningless? i am proposing that all excitements of the physical world should be lumped together into a category labeled meaningless of worthless, or at least extremely unimportant and we have to look for a new answer something that we can all agree has meaning, something which is true and deep and everlasting and right and good and proper and right.

to be consistent in a changing world is sometimes a challenge. and many times a blessing. some people wear the same type of clothing every day. i try to these days. it is grueling sometimes to do such. a person has different moods. he goes in different environments, he wants to fit in, be left alone, to stand out, make a statement, conform, not conform. and here you are rain or shine, happy or sad. like it or not same outer clothes. same uniform. so i guess i am always ready to do one thing and that is to serve G-d. no matter anything else that's happening either inside or outside me.
