Only Prayer

Here you have it beloved brethren, the only weapon that will defeat Eretz Ysrael’s enemies, is PRAYER, not weapons, or any person or army but simple sincere PRAYER from way deep within our heart.

We have to get hold of our sword (Emunah) and start praying (Tefillah) to Hashem, in order to clean the path so that Mosiach can come and deliver Klal Ysrael from our enemies.

Rabbi Lazer Brody from Lazer Beams has a wonderful spiritual explanation about the threat against Israel and how to deal with it.

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.

The Eye Sees and the Heart Covets

By Rabbi Shalom Arush
Translated by Rabbi Lazer Brody

The Tale of the Lost Princess

Part 22 from The Garden of Yearning

Rabbi Zev “Velvel” Cheshin of blessed memory, one of the prominent Breslover Chassidim of the previous generation, would say in the name of the Zohar that the Yetzer Hara is not allowed to enter a person except through the eyes. In our tale, we see this principle clearly. Had the viceroy guarded his eyes – and that means closing them, especially to temptation – he wouldn’t have suffered a setback and he’d have rescued the princess then and there.

The very first sin in the world – Adam’s – began with the eyes, for it is written (see Bereishit, chapter 3), “And the woman saw that the tree is good for eating, for it was irresistible in her eyes and pleasingly enlightening so she took from its fruit and gave it also to her man with her and he ate.”

All the blemishes imaginable – lust for women, lust for food, lust for money, coveting, jealousy, and many more – all begin with the eyes. Rashi teaches us (see his commentary of Parshat Shlach), that “what the eye sees, the heart covets.”

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.
