how come nobody leaves comments? i know you're out there! leave a comment!

all those who desire life

the torah mandates that we should have six cities of refuges built where all those who are in danger of their lives can run and have refuge. these days we do not have the physical cities, but we have their conceptual counterparts. the six cities where one can have peace are the six things that we are obligated to do all moments of our lives. for example believing in G-d, loving G-d, Fearing G-d, denouncing idolatry, .. when a person enters into a state of mind and body of being connected to G-d, Torah, and truth he enters into a place of refuge. He escapes the deathly dangers that his soul faces every day in the not yet perfected physical world.
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.

An amazing letter from Rabbi Vidal Bekerman:
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.
