Firstly,
Men Tohr Nisht Gribblen in Dehr Blotteh
We are not allowed to dig and roll in the mud!
I see from your postings and from the extensive Dov postings that I read from your links (Thank you so much for that) that I need an entirely new frame of mind and a complete reset to get into the 12 Step system.
I sent Dov a question that I had based on his posts in a private email. I am still forcing myself to communicate on this forum as I feel totally naked and exposed here and I am anonymous. I will have to work on myself to reach Dov's level of openness and honesty. I will have to think about your responses and let them percolate in my head so that I can digest this revolutionary way of thinking for me. I guess I am approaching a fork in the road, am I prepared to let go and get absorbed into the 12 step program or will I be sucked into the spiritual abyss. I am wondering to myself if there is a middle road and maybe I am not an addict and with this communication with you, my partner and the forum, I can keep vigilant clean and safe.

WOW!!! What a powerful post. Thank you so much. It will take me some time to digest all you wrote. I am so strenghtened just by seeing how you care to take the time to read my post, focus on it and try to put yourself in my frame of mind and then provide me with such chizzuk. I'm sure you have plenty to do but you gave me some precious time. Thank you for that..

The fact that you got chizzuk, gives me chizzuk, so thank you!

Firstly, that is not what you wrote above. You wrote

pischoshelmachat wrote:
I don't like to talk or even think about what I have done in the past because it is too painful for me to face the horrible things that I did that are so not who I really am.

Secondly, I agree with you to a degree. It really depends how it is done. I joined one of the 12 step phone conferences from GYE. One of the most difficult (and most important) things I did was to do a first step inventory. I wrote down my entire history of acting out. I then read it (really paraphrased it) to the group. I can tell you that it did not trigger me at all. It was quite a humbling experience. At the same time it was a very liberating experience. It is hard to describe, but being able to articulate it was a very important step for me.

A lot of the work has to do with "getting out of Hashem's way" so to speak. The ultimate goal of the 12 steps (as I understand it) is really humility. Humbly accepting what Hashem has in store for us. Much of our acting out doesn't really come from ta'avah. It comes from being uncomfortable with life for one reason or another. Acting out is just a drug that makes life more bearable (in the short term). The humble acceptance that Hashem runs the show and we are just here to do his will releives us of that stress so we have no need to act out.

Thirdly, can you translate the yiddish phrase. I am somewhat yiddish impaired. I undertand only a bissel .

Please explain what you mean let go but don't give in.

I will try. Many of these concepts came to me gradually. Some I am still fuzzy on. I'm no expert, I am just trying to share my experience.

Often times, I would have a good streak for a period of time. Then I would be waiting in the checkout line at the grocery store and have a conversation with myself that went something like this.

"I have a good streak going don't look at that magazine."

"But I really want to look."

"But it's not good for you."

"Why does Hashem put me in theses situations? How does he expect me to pass? It's not fair."

To me, "letting go" means letting go of my expectations. My little conversation with myself is my selfish desire for something, and my wish that Hashem wouldn't put it in front of me. How many times did I wish that acting on my desires was just muttar? That is ME trying to run the show. ME trying to tell Hashem what I think is good for ME. I need to trust Hashem to run the show.

I need to "let go" of my desire, not struggle with it. Struggling, is just a way of hanging on to it. Letting go, is the feeling that it is not for me. Struggling, means I really want it and wish Hashem would let me have it.

There was a good story posted here a while back about a chassid who was walking with his rebbe. (I hope I'm telling it correctly) They passed a lady stuck in a pit. The rebbe helped her climb out. The rebbe and the chassid continued walking. Finally, the chassid asked the rebbe "how could you touch that woman?" The rebbe replied, "I touched her for a moment (and then let go- my comment), you have been carrying her with you this whole time (and are still struggling - my comment)".

I'm not sure if I am being clear. Maybe dov will pop in and enlighten us.

Please explain what you mean let go but don't give in. I feel that I must be tough to repel the attacks of the Yetzer Hara. Sure I daven to HKB"H that he shield me and give me the strength to resist, but when the fire heats up, i have to get really tough to tell the YH where to go. I feel that I cannot let go because i am on a tightrope at all times over Niagara Falls and the slightest distraction will destroy me. So NO I cannot let go or give in.

all anivus aside

i received tremendous reaction from yesterdays email

thank you

"Bardichev" responds in his indelible style:



Forget the apology for right now, just stay clean!!



Yes, we all want to do Teshuvah.

But here on GYE you will learn how to live life.

You will grow. You will be happy and at peace.

So if you will ask me, 'Bards, what's so bad about a little regret - and a huge "I'm sorry"??'

I will answer you, my dearest chaver.

You are in a cesspool. You got your Yom Tov suit dirty.

Does Mommy need an "I'm sorry" now, or does mommy needs you out of the cesspool??

I heard a story from the Tzaddik, Reb Nosson Vachtfoigel, the Lakewood Mashgiach ZT"L...

A bachur did a sin.

He asked the Mashgiach for a kapparah.

The Mashgiach said, "Come back in a few weeks".

Some weeks passed...

He came back.

The mashgiach said, "Come at the end of the z'man".

"Come next z'man"...

"Come at the end of next z'man"...

The bachur was getting antsy...

He came Elul...

Selichos...

Rosh Hashanah...

Finally the Mashgiach said, "Come to me on Yom Kippur".

On Yom Kippur the bachur said, "Rebbe, what should I do??"

The Mashgiach replied, "Gribble nisht" (don't delve into it)...

Move on!!

Often times the Yetzer Hara wants us to be busy with the kapparah as a way to keep us HOLDING ON to the sin.

Just Keep On Trucking!!
