Chizuk
 
A Poem from the Depth
 
By Just Be

It's the last night of chanuka
flickering candles
burning bright
dancing flames
reaching upwards
ever higher
meant to reflect
the soul that resides
within each jew
where's the key
to this soul
that's here
locked
this time
holiness
aspiration
reflected
within the candles
within the eyes
choosing
at this time
drawing
lines
immutable
to be uncrossed
ever again
this time
choosing
the rest of the year
sealing
a conclusion
what's been until now
doesn't have to be further
depends on now
the rest of the year
it's too great
a responsibility
when i can't even
pray
in any way
but it's not always prayers
that's the choice
but the choices
in and of themselves
that have the power
the candles flicker
burning bright
reaching higher
flickering
higher and higher
reflecting
our hearts
our souls
our destinations

By Duvid Chaim

His e-mail contains a lot of wisdom and it can help us all to approach our struggles with lust with the right attitude. Duvid Chaim writes as follows:

Testimonials
 
From a Member named "Pesach"
 
By Anonymous

I want to make a $100 donation to be used for helping others. BSD, I want to donate more at a future date (say Amen). You do Hashem’s work in helping so many as I once was a victim and Baruch Hashem have been clean for over 2 years, one hour at a time.

May Hashem continue to provide Siyata DiSmaya in helping so many whose neshamoth are screaming for help from the maul that is everywhere.

kol tuv mamash,

Pesach.

I want to share today a few wonderful things that have come about for me through this program of 12 steps. I feel like I have not shared in a while and so I will do some "service" and share my "experience, strength and hope."
