"Serve G-d in Joy, come
before Him
in song"

Sally Mullihan of Coral Springs, Florida decided to take one of the jobs that most Americans are not willing to do.

The woman applying for a job in a Florida lemon grove seemed to be far too qualified for the job. She had a liberal arts degree from the University of Wisconsin and had worked as a social worker and school teacher.

The foreman frowned and said, "I have to ask you, have you had any actual experience in picking lemons?"

"Well, as a matter of fact, I have! I've been divorced three times, owned 2 Chrysler's and voted for Obama."

(please don't blame me that's how I got this joke.)
I take urs tooooo!!!

How to get anyone into a state of tranquility and self confidence.

The following is a quote from one of the great mystics. "Thoughts and the ability to visualize are incredibly powerful. As if it were convincing and lifelike, these faculties will place a person anywhere. At that moment the person is totally elevated from the nonsense and trivia of the earthly reality. His awareness, his consciousness, his aspirations travel away. His thoughts are dancing, elevated in the realm of the spirit and soul, and his flesh is detached and perhaps even estranged from him..."

It is possible for a person to physically be in one place, an unpleasant place, and be completely and totally unaffected, through his thoughts that put him in a place of peace and tranquility.

"The Baal Shem Tov said, "Where a person's thoughts are, that is where the person (truly) is. " In the seminal book on mysticism the Zohar, it says. "The Human existence - is thought". It is through the channel of one's thoughts, at the top of one's form, the soul energy of a person, the quality of his life and his feelings are drawn and then shine in one's body. The desire for something and the resolve and determination inside a person must work with and through ones thoughts.

Strength and weakness in a person's life are all the result of ones thoughts. Thought is compared sometimes to a funnel. In the same way that through a funnel water is given shape and is directed , it is through the conduit of thought that the full power or weakness of the soul will make its' way into a person's actual body.

Thoughts that accentuate optimism, faith in G-d and happy beliefs will shape and express the soul accordingly. Negative thoughts give shape to the soul and with that everything about the person to reduce itself to that undesirable pattern. The influence of good thoughts on the soul is far greater and deeper than speech and action, because of its closeness and constant attachment with the soul.

G-dly words and inspiration, for example the book of Psalms, are the ultimate in good and positive thoughts of wisdom and light. They are particularly beneficial to influence, mold, and direct the soul and one's life for the good.

When a person thinks G-dly thoughts, which is most compatible with the spark of G-d within, they encompass and synergize with the soul and this will trigger from ones essence and depth the full shine and infinite light that knows no bounds.
This will allow the soul, a spark of G-d, to bring forth the strongest of life itself and makes any person in whatever circumstances they are in feel both peaceful and at the zenith of personal confidence.

Thoughts that are the opposite of Holiness and G-dliness will cause tremendous hurt to a person, by going against the nature of one's own soul and strangling the soul. This choice, to think non-worthy, negative thoughts places a perimeter on the soul and reduces the soul of its light in the body which results in darkness and uncertainty.

The positive influence of a good thought, finer speech and actions is much greater on the soul than a bad one. "Greater is the measure of goodness over the measure of punishment." A small positive light will chase away much darkness from a large dark room. Positive, inspiring thoughts are more powerful than the darkness caused by negative thoughts.

The more a person accustoms and trains oneself to think positive thoughts, the more we habituate our souls to flow in a positive direction which brings about great positive results.
Living with the Rebbe.
The Rebbe Writes,
All About,
Earning A Living

Translated from letters of the Rebbe

... Since in our world all things get better with time, you should not be overly concerned if your first job will be difficult or your salary will not be satisfactory, for this is but the beginning [of your job experience] and "All beginnings are difficult."

Even if you imagine that you are being taken advantage of, as your productivity warrants a better salary, still, bear in mind that this is but the beginning.

In the above matter, the teaching "A person is too close to himself [to be entirely objective]" also applies. You should therefore specifically seek the counsel of your good friends. After explaining to them the details and your reasoning, they will be able to offer you objective advice regarding your job.

Mikdash Melech, Vol. I, p. 236

You write that for the time being you have not had any job offers:

In light of that which is explained in Kuntres U'Mayon, man must make a receptacle [for obtaining his sustenance].

It is therefore inappropriate to wait for others to offer you a job; you are to go out on your own and actively seek a job, particularly since this [i.e., acquiring a job] is more important to you than to other individuals, i.e., those who may offer you a job.

Igros Kodesh, Vol. XIV, p. 417

In reply to your question as to what would be the best type of job for you to obtain:

Understandably, you should give priority to the type of job where you can best utilize your talents and knowledge.

Also, seek the counsel of your local good friends, as this will clarify to a greater extent the situation, potential jobs, etc.

Heichal Menachem, Vol. III, p. 179

... Regarding matters of earning a living - it should be according to the advice of discerning friends. This is in keeping with the verse, "Salvation lies in much counsel"; which is to say, that the individuals offering advice are to be wise and discerning so that they are capable of providing counsel. And "much counsel" means that there be at least two individuals providing advice, as the minimum of "much" is at least two.

Moreover, they are to be "friends" - individuals who seek your welfare, for which reason they will give your situation proper consideration and offer you sound advice.

Sefer HaSichos 5748, Vol. I, p. 240

It is regretful that you are finding it so difficult to accept the fact that you are having temporary difficulties in finding a job, although - unfortunately - such situations are quite common during present times.

We actually perceive that which is explained in the sacred books, that the more one increases his faith and trust in the Creator of the world, the One who conducts it with individual Divine Providence, the sooner will there come about an improvement in the situation, and the greater will be the improvement. The same is true with regard to your situation.

Igros Kodesh, Vol. XVI, p. 223

It would seem that once again you are worrying, and central to your worries is the concern about the possibility that, G-d forbid, you will not be able to earn a living.

Understandably, it is quite disconcerting that you should be so concerned; surely that which is stated in Torah in general and in Toras HaChassidus [the teachings of Chasidism] in particular about faith and trust in G-d should suffice for you not to worry.

(As is self-understood, this in no way contradicts the need for making a "receptacle" via natural means, as the verse says, "G-d shall bless you in all that you shall do." However, this must be done in a manner of "By the labor of your hands shall you eat," i.e., that your hands should labor, but not your head and heart.)

This is particularly so with an individual such as yourself, you who have beheld miracles with your own eyes, miracles that transpired with yourself.

Now, all of a sudden you begin to worry if the One who sustains and nourishes everyone, approximately one billion eight hundred million people, will be able to sustain you and your family in an honorable and ample manner.

It would be a misuse of precious time to go on at greater length about something so obvious.

Igros Kodesh, Vol. XII, p. 198

From "Eternal Joy" translated by Rabbi Sholom Ber Wineberg, published by Sichos in English 

It Once happened
The Picture that drew itself......
In a far-off country lived a king who had, as his closest friend and advisor, the Chief Rabbi of the Jewish community. Often, the king would call the rabbi to his palace and question him all about the Torah and Judaism. The rabbi answered all the king's questions patiently and wisely.

On day, the king called in his friend. "I have a question that has been bothering me for some time now. I have failed to find a satisfactory answer."

"Ask, your Highness," said the Rabbi, "and with G-d's help I will be able to answer."

"While studying your religion," began the king, "I have learned that one of your basic tenets is to believe in G-d who created the heavens and the earth. Now, my dear Rabbi," the king continued, "before we can believe that G-d created the world, we have to be sure that there is a G-d. What proof do we have that G-d created the world? Perhaps it came about by itself."

While the king posed these questions, he accidently brushed his elbow against a bottle of ink which was on his desk. The bottle turned over and the ink spilled out, blotting up the papers which were near the ink bottle and spilling on the king.

The king jumped up from his seat, excusing himself for being so careless, and left the room to change his clothes.

As soon as the king left the room, the rabbi quickly took the ink-filled papers off the king's desk and threw them away. The rabbi, who was also an artist, then took a clean sheet of paper and began drawing a picture of lofty mountains, tall trees, a river, and beautiful flower gardens. As soon as he finished drawing the picture, he placed it on the desk right next to the overturned ink bottle, making it appear as thought the ink had spilled on the paper.

Soon, the King returned to the room, and immediately noticed the beautiful drawing on his desk.

"What is this?" asked the king in surprise. "Who drew this beautiful scene?"

The rabbi smiled at the king and said, "Oh, when the ink spilled all over your desk it made this picture!"

"Come now," cried out the king, "certainly you are smarter than that. How could you say such a thing? Why, a magnificent drawing like this can not happen by itself. Surely someone drew this breathtaking landscape."

"Please come with me onto the balcony," offered the rabbi. Once outside, the rabbi began, "Your majesty, tell me, where did all of these tall trees come from? Who formed these high mountains? And look at the beautiful flowers in your gardens below, who made them?"

The king nodded, beginning to understand. The Rabbi continued, "Just a few moments ago, you yourself proclaimed that it would be foolish to say that anything came about by itself. Obviously, it was I who drew the picture you found on your desk in an attempt to prove that G-d created the whole world. For who or what, if not G-d, made the heavens, the sun, moon and stars? Who filled the deep oceans and formed the lofty mountains? The answer is as "black and white" as that drawing on your desk."

The king was impressed and satisfied with his friend's sagacious answer. For many years he continued to enjoy the rabbi's sharp wisdom and perception.

Quick Fix Inspiration from the Lubavitcher Rebbe
Penetrating Wisdom.
At Mount Sinai, tradition tells, there was no echo.

Torah penetrates and is absorbed by all things, because it is their essence.

There is no place where it does not apply, no darkness it does not illuminate, nothing it cannot bring alive.

Nothing will bounce it back and say, "Torah is too holy to belong here."


Moshiach Matters.

Moshiach will be a faithful shepherd of the Jewish people, caring for every Jew with a total commitment,

so that not a single Jew will be lost.

(Pesikta Rabati)
Action -
Counts the most.
This was the form of the menora: hammered work of gold, from its base to its flower it was hammered work; according to the form that the Lord had shown Moses, so did he construct the menora. (Num. 8:4)

"Beaten work of gold," explains Rashi, means that the menora was to be made of a single piece of gold, beaten or pounded with a hammer and other tools, until it assumed the proper shape.

Likewise, a person who desires to transform himself into a "menora," to kindle his G-dly spark and be illuminated with the light of Torah,

should also do the same to himself - striking away at his negative qualities and working on his character until he, too, assumes the proper form.
