Marital Peace.      

Nothing is greater than peace. Even when you are 100% right, and you know your spouse is 100% wrong, you can still give in for the sake of peace. 

Resistance to peace.     

The relation of husband and wife is the way our world reflects the relationship of the Creator with His Creation. There is nothing more pivotal to the world's ultimate fulfillment than this.

 TWO Masters    

 

A body has two masters, a brain and a heart.

 

 

Working with the body.

   

 

Progressive failure.

There are two ways to ascend: You can step upward, leaving one foot in its place as the other moves ahead. Or you can crouch down and leap.

This is the true meaning of failure: Failure is not just a setback. Everything in life is a step forward, because everything has meaning.

So too, failure: It is the crouch before the jump, the break away from the past so that we can leap into the future.

 

 

 

 Moshiach Matters.
Once, Rabbi Shmuel (later to be known as the Rebbe Maharash - the fourth Chabad-Lubavitch Rebbe) asked his father, the Tzemach Tzedek about the date for Moshiach's coming ascribed to the year 5608 (1848) and why Moshiach had not come then.

The Tzemach Tzedek replied that the book of Chasidic teachings, Likkutei Torah, had been printed that year.

Mistreating animals.


You shall not plow with an ox and a donkey together. (Deut. 22:10) We learn from this prohibition just how careful the Torah is to avoid causing pain or mistreating animals.

The donkey is much weaker than the mighty ox;  if the two animals were paired together with one harness, the donkey would have terrible difficulty keeping pace with its much stronger companion.

DEPRESSION.
What man is there who is fearful and fainthearted? Let him go and return to his house (Deut. 20:8)

The words in this verse were said by Moses to those who were to wage war.

Rabbi Yosi Haglili said: This means one who is afraid because of his sins.

Rabbi Nachman of Breslov added another insight:

The worst thing is when a person dwells on his transgressions and sinks into a depression.

You are the children of the L-rd your G-d (Deut. 14:1)

Just as the child is drawn down from the brain of the father, so are the souls of the Jewish people drawn down from G-d's Supernal wisdom.

However, the connection between the Jew and G-d is even loftier than that between an earthly father and son,  for G-d's wisdom is not a separate entity from Him, but "He and His wisdom are one."

And the cause that is too hard for you (literally "from you"), bring to me and I will hear it (Deut. 1:17)

"Know," Nachmanides once told his son, "that whenever a person derives pleasure from something, he will go to great lengths to find it permissible, even if it is clearly forbidden.

He must not break his word; he must do all that he expressed verbally (Num. 30:3) When a person is faithful to his every utterance and lives up to his word,  he merits that G-d will "do all that he expressed verbally," as the saying goes: "The righteous man decrees, and the Holy One fulfills it."

(Kedushat Levi)

Miracles & Doctors.


Firm confidence in G-d can perform miracles of healing. Nevertheless, you should still follow the instructions of the doctor.


Not that it is the doctor or his medicine that heals

Healing..


People think that if they are not well, they must sacrifice all meaning in their life in order to take care of their physical situation.

In fact, the opposite is true: You cannot separate the healing of the body from the healing of the soul. As you treat the body, you must also

MIRACLES...

We take the laws of nature too seriously. We think of the world as though it exists just as its Creator exists.

Therefore we have miracles. A miracle is a state of enlightenment that says, "Our reality is nothing but a glimmer of a higher reality. 

In that higher realm, there is no world. There is nothing else but Him."

A quick fix from The Lubavitcher Rebbe,
Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson.
Higher consciousness

The first step to higher consciousness is to be conscious of a consciousness higher than your own.

And to be conscious of how that consciousness is conscious of you.

Do You Fear????
Captivity begins by believing that you are small and the world is big.

Once you believe that, next you are likely to believe it will step on you, and you fear it.
