I don't post very often on the forum these days.


I still don't think anyone has as many posts as our beloved Guard.


I just want to point out that this Friday night, Malchus ShebYesod, wraps up the whole week and we are metaken the entire sefira of Yesod instead of only a portion.
The Blind Beggar is a character in Rebbe Nachman's story of the Seven Beggars.

I can guard my eyes.
I want to guard my eyes.
I do guard my eyes.
Why do I say these four lines?

Thank you all for your kind words and encouragement.

Reb Guard, I don't have the words to thank you properly. If not for this site, i don't know where I would be now.

Dov, that whole Kapitel really speaks to me strongly of my (our) struggle, and it is one of the highlights of Shachris for me. One of the regular chazzanim at my usual shachris minyan skips it and goes straight to 'hayom yom..." I hate that! >

And every day that you want to wake up, that you want to wake, you can
And every day that you want to change, that you want to change, yeah

... and then we are ready to go into the sfira of Malchus. I once heard from Rav Wolfson Shlit"a that malchu"s is Roshei Tayvos: ve'atem tihyu li mamleches kohanim.

Gevurah,

Funny, I think I've read your first posts maybe three times. For some reason I keep clicking on the first post when I mean to click on the last. And each time I read them I am moved deeply by your love for Hashem, your bitachon, emunah are just such an example for me. I thank you for all you've given me, and send you love and major mazel tovs. May Hashem bless you in all things and protect you, his taireh yid.

Thanks Zemmy and 1D for the warm words.

This is post #1000!!!!!

Today I unofficially have a year's worth (354) of clean days! I have 304 cumulative days on the WOH. And before that I had a streak of 50 days before I signed up, which began on the day of Gevura Shebyesod last year.

Gevura!

WOW!! KOT!! Tiferes Shlome this week brings a zohar saying that the gates opened in shamaim pesach stay open till the end of the week of Hoid. He explains that while by all the other middos the gates are open for The hashpu'os come from hashem, but yesod and malchus (alluding to bringing out all the middos l'maase) we need to "chop the wood ourselves"! hatzlach and good shabbos

Hey Gevura, if you would like someone to bring those lofty chasidic concepts down a bit, so that even a lowly misnagid, or simple tillimzugger (who isn't in the "hechere velten") can understand it, check out what I wrote here. (I think you'll enjoy that post regardless- cuz it features some goodole matisyahu...)

Oh, and hello.
