If you choose to trust in God then you will fear no one

Fear versus love, two opposing directions

 

 

 

Rabbi Yisroel Baal Shem Tov the founder of Chassidus and eventually Chabad had as guiding light, inspiring his every moment the following teaching from his father the Tzaddik Rabbi Eliezer: Fear No One And Love Everyone With All Your Heart And Soul!

 

He certainly fulfilled this in his lifetime and managed to inspire millions of Jews in his and subsequent generations!

 

Fear is a funny thing, for we have but one computer, one cpu, that processes our thoughts in our brain.

 

You are your soul, the feeling that feels fear or love, the entity that sees your thoughts, now the way your soul works is that it doesn’t really enter your body, rather is associated to it and sort of hovers in and around it, so you a. can feel fear and b. this will cause you to think of ways to prevent fear.

 

Likewise, you can feel love and this will cause you of ways to think of how to obtain your desires.

 

But you can’t feel fear and love at the same time.

 

So normally we begin life – hopefully – in love with the world.

 

Then we have some kind of traumatic incident and we fall out of love with life, where the basic saying of Henry David Thoreau

“The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. What is called resignation, is confirmed desperation;” applies.

 

So the first thing we must realize is, that our brain is not truth; like our computer is not truth, it merely plays what we tell it to play (determined by our feelings which enter our brain and try to prevent our fears or achieve our loves.)

 

So there really is, one solution: Fear No One And Love Everyone With All Your Heart And Soul!

Happiness comes from humility, for in humility there is the ability to indentify with others, for in haughtiness one is greater than, hence beyond others, hence unable to identify with them, hence unable to love them and the only joy in life comes from the feeling of love and the ensuing unity

It is not fame, nor sex, nor drugs, or any kind of narcissistic pleasure that makes man happy

To know how to die is to know how to live – with dignity

If you want to understand God, all you need to do is understand women

 

 

You see, men understand why men like women, but for the life of them, don’t understand why women like men

 

Now of course being a man – not much of one, but generally speaking you know – I wouldn’t understand either, if not for Judaism, which contains all truth

 

One of the reasons women want men is simply for a relationship

 

Yes, you heard right

 

A relationship!

 

What is a relationship? – friendship!

 

Women desire to have a friend in their husband – and find me one, one woman! who will deny this assumption.

 

So now, get back into God’s head!

 

To have a friendship / relationship, five main things are required:

 

1. There a., must be an other – to do this God created a nation (in Hebrew the word Am comes from the word oimimus depth, meaning other.)

 

2. You need that the other should desire to have a relationship with you – ah… here comes the hard part = what don’t women do so men should desire them – similarly, God let men roam the earth (women too) so they should get out their walkabout *a term used to describe the male need to roam planet earth prior to being ready to find his happiness is in his own home.

 

3. God needed Judaism, for it is the bridge between man and God.

 

4. God needed the Rebbes, the prophets, perhaps even the Rabbis who would share Judaism’s message to humanity!

 

5 But most of all, God desires the free choice, that eureka moment, when a Jew (or perhaps all people) discover, YES THERE IS A GOD! YES, HE DOES LOVE ME! AND YES! AI DO LOVE HIM!

Life has great highs and great lows – those who celebrate the highs will not drown in the lows
