Recording of Rabbi Shais Taub on Duvid Chaim's Call

Erev Yomim Nora'im Preparation: How can I expect G-d to love or forgive me when I'm still acting out?
Torah
 
The source of all love
 
By GYE

The Chassidim teach that physical love is a branch of spiritual love. It is a materialistic expression of what the soul truly yearns for. G-d gave us these desires only to "learn" what the love of G-d should be like. As David Hamelech said, "Tzama lecha nafshi, Kama lecha besari" - "my soul thirsts for you, my flesh aches for you."

If someone has a very strong subconscious need for love, it means he has a great soul because he has the highest opportunity for the true love of G-d. But he is in this world to learn how to focus it properly, to channel the love in the right place - to the Source of all love, all beauty, all desire, and all good.

Daily Dose of Dov
 
The Only Thing That Matters
 
By Dov

Where you are going is much more important than where you are coming from.

You may be in some dismay about where you are coming from right now, your track record, your lack of this and of that... but if your reaching out for help and trying, your direction is just fantastic!

It's so easy to sit back and criticize another for not doing this or that, or not holding by whatever good thing.... But by the same token, it is also so natural and easy for us to bitterly criticise ourselves for what we are lacking! We are often quite damning of ourselves. Most folks destroy themselves this way, and permanently.

So, I say you are definitely one lucky guy. Staying on the upward path is the only thing that matters. The only thing.
