A Tzaddik’s Request – Just 10 Minutes

I requested Reb Akiva of Mystical Paths, to allow me place this video of HaRav Shalom Arush, shlita, where HaRav Arush, shlita, makes a special request of the world. Hebrew w/English subtitles.
It’s a blessing to hear HaRav Shalom Arush, shlita, in hitbodedut (personal prayer).

This video, placed with the kind permission of Reb Akiva of Mystical Paths.

The Tzadik in the Field

Due the last news, which are quite disturbing, I requested Reb Akiva of Mystical Paths, to allow me place this video of HaRav Shalom Arush, shlita, where he gives a powerful example of hitbodedut (personal prayer), showing how to express one’s emunah (faith) in the Creator of the world. Rabbi Arush, shlita, is the author of The Garden of Emunah and the Rosh Yeshiva of Chut Shel Chesed in Jerusalem.

Pesach Seder night – Hashem’s favorite night

Rama, Shulchan Oruch, Orach Chaim 481:2 – “This night is protected from the forces of evil.”

The Torah describes Seder night as a “night of protection” (Exodus 12:42), when Hashem personally took His beloved children of Israel out of Egypt. The original Hebrew lail shimorim is interpreted two different ways in the Midrash: First, it is a “reserved” night, since Hashem redeemed Israel from bondage on the night of the 15th of Nisan, he reserves this same night to redeem his children Israel in the future (Yalkut Shimoni, Bo, 210). Second, it’s a “protected” night (ibid), since Hashem’s divine presence repels all mazikim, the dark-side forces of evil.

“Night of protection” is no mere homiletic catchphrase; it’s anchored in religious law! The Abridged Code of Jewish Law (119:9), in explaining how to perform the latter part of the Seder, writes: “After grace following the meal, we pour the fourth cup. According to custom, we open the door in remembrance that tonight is a protected night and we fear nothing.”

A person can turn any night into a “night of protection” by simply pouring his or her heart out in personal prayer. Rebbe Nachman teaches that when a Jew desires to speak to Hashem, Hashem moves everything aside to listen. By virtue of our speaking to Hashem, we hasten the day of the ingathering of the exiles and the final redemption of our people, amen.

Truth, Tales and Visions:A Breslov Book of Wisdom.

Texts of R. Nachman of Breslov

Rendered into English by Yaacov David Shulman

A Spirit of Folly

Where do sins come from? They come from a lack of understanding. “A man does not sin unless a spirit of folly has entered into him” (Sotah 3a).
This is the greatest pity of all. Have compassion on those who have sinned; fill them with understanding.

Do Not Despair

Even if you have fallen very low, do not despair. There is no despair in the world. “Sins can be turned into merits” (Yoma 86b). This matter contains mystical secrets.
You can easily return to G_d from any fall, because G_d’s greatness has no end. Never give up crying out to God.

Simplicity

The essence of serving G_d is simplicity: in learning a great deal, praying a great deal and doing good deeds.You do not have to be too strict with yourself. The Torah was not given to angels. Simply do what you can.

Courtesy Jewish, Spiritual and Beautiful.

Assimilated into the oneness of G_d!

Each one of us has to see to it that we become assimilated into the root of who we are, to return and be assimilated into the oneness of G_d, Who is the One Reality.

This can be achieved only when we make ourselves totally stop, when we cease our being.

And we can only come to this cessation through hisbodedus. When we are in seclusion with G_d, we can cause all desires and bad traits to cease.

We can cling to G_d and be drawn into the root of who we are.
