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