R' Yisrael Reisman Shlit"a: A MUST for anyone struggling with these issues.

This Shiur, given recently by Rabbi Yisroel Reisman, discusses the little-known Middah of “Netzach.”  We believe that the GYE community will find this Shiur very inspiring and insightful, both for its general theme and for the specific discussion of the Nisyonos of the Internet. (The Shiur is being shared in its entirety with the generous permission of the copyright holder.  Please note that permission is granted to download only for your personal use.  This Shiur, and hundreds of other Shiurim by Rabbi Reisman, can be purchased and downloaded here, or contact navitapes@gmail.com.)

shiur from R' Bentzion Twersky

www.torahmedia.com/search/fileinfo.php?sid=l89mh53204i043s&cid=&directlink=29692&frompage=

All the tricks to guarding our eyes are great (like on this page). They can and do work. But they can still take a lot out of you. There’s a constant struggle, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose (even if you don’t act out) and it’s very draining. Instead, in this amazing shiur from R' Bentzion Twersky, he says that the long term answer is to address the root cause, which is to change your character so that this is not something you want. If you don’t want it, you won’t see it (he gives a mashal for this – listen to the shiur!).

You address the root cause by focusing on what you want instead (hopefully Torah and a connection to Hashem) and as you work on that you will slowly become that.  It’s a lofty goal but in the long run, it will put you in a different place entirely and all these strategies will become unnecessary.  And lofty goals are achieved step by step, one day at a time, as we know.  So start today!

Someone posted on the forum at www.jewishsexuality.com:

Interesting Lecture on Dealing with Temptations

I just heard a really helpful, interesting lecture called: Maintaining Kedusha in an Overexposed Society - Rabbi Mayer Twersky and Dr. David Pelcovitz. The _link_ to this lecture is:

www.yutorah.org/lectures/lecture.cfm/731589/_Artists_Various/Maintaining_Kedusha_in_an_Overexposed_Society_-_Rabbi_Mayer_Twersky_and_Dr._David_Pelcovitz

It includes both religious and psychological aspects of the struggle against sexual temptations, along with tools for dealing with these issues.

Just wanted to post a link here to a fantastic lecture serious from Rabbi Moshe Wolfson, mashgiach of Yeshivas Torah Vdas and Rav of the famous Emunas Yisroel shul in Boro Park.

Rabbi Wolfson has been lecturing on the topic of emunah for many years as this subject has been the focal point of his hashkafas ha'chaim.

Engendering a deep and lasting emunah in Hashem is a crucial aspect of any recovery whether it be 12 step based or not.

In my opinion, these lectures are worth their weight in gold.

www.613.org/wolfson.html

Also, for many other free and current shiurim in many languages see www.kolhashiurim.com

Note: The shiur is more halachik than hashlafic and could possibly be a trigger for some folks.
