FEEL THE HUGS!!! 21 Sep 2009 18:08 #19180

Possibly flakiest thread in GYE's history.....

Listen,life is scary.
All of us have a lack of trust.
In the world.
In Hashem.
In ourselves.

That's why this thread is gonna change all that.
Hashem runs the world.
And we're in safe hands
I know what you're all saying....
"O man.Another bitachon shmuz!"

NO!

This is the HASHEM LOVES US corner!!
Here we will come each day and share or at least acknowledge one hug that Hashem gave us that day.
And when we all feel ready,we can move up to two.
And three.
And a million.
Could be big hugs.
Small hugs.
Fat hugs.
Thin hugs.
They're all good.
The point is to just spot it and feel it!!
This is a big step in our recovery chevra!!
Who's in?

Good idea,Uri!
You inspire me with your words so often.
And your music touches my heart and my soul.
Ill go first.

My hug today was I was looking for a job at a certain type of store,and I passed that type of store,and there was a sign in the window:
Looking to hire

HUG!!
Thank you Hashem!

Oy! are you bad! and bad is an understatement!

But the Funniness makes up for it, so what can I say.

Uri,

Just by putting up with this guy shows that your not that big of a flake after all.

You know how to fend for yourself.

Does one from 3 months ago count?
About three months ago, something called summer was approaching.
A creature that is pleasant in many ways, but has a very nasty streak to it.
(Check out countryYIKES if you're not familiar with that side of it)
Kutan here was really not sure how he'd make it through  ???

And then, Hashem sent this guy onto the forum that was a breath of fresh energy, a singular source of inspiration, and Kutan's summer was a dream.

HUG!!!

(ps: that guy had something to do with this thread.)

This is a fantastic idea - I just read in Chovos halvovos that it is impossible to have "trust" in a person, where there is no love.  He writes that one the main foundations of "bitachon" is the absolute cognizant that Hashem loves "me"!
For me this has been a tremendous eye opener!
How can Hashem love lousy ole me, when He knows all my hidden deeds?

I've come to the realization that I haven't even begun to fathom who Hashem really is? 

So this is a great idea for a thread......if I understand the goal correctly .......its not merely about recognizing Hasgacha Pratis but more then that focusing on Hashem or Tatty's ;)message of love to me and a special hug from Him that is found in the Hasgacha pratis....

A very very tall Order, Uri!

Ok. I'd like to share something that might be helpful...
by the first bracha of sh'esrai, stop for 5 seconds at 'behava', and meditate on how much Hashem loves us.

I think this is another great thread. Not flakey at all! I had an upsetting morning, and I've already gotten chizuk today from it. Shkoiyach!

And Fiery Noorah,

Great insight from the Chovos Halevavos about Bitachon, that its is impossible to have "Trust" in someone where there is no Love. So when I have Bitachon in Hashem, I realize that HE loves me and that allows me to have more Bitachon in Him. Great insight!

Rage,i was wondering when ud show up here.

Ive asked this question to mom many times believe me.

Why does He have to hug so hard???!!!

And you know what mom said?

BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!!

ever see someone you havent seen in a while and give them such a tremendous hug you nearly take their breath away?
they are like what the heck?
You just cant help yourself.
Hashem is like that every time.
His massive Godly hugs are sometimes a little intense.
But they are geshmak
