Who Straightens the bent

Filed under: Blog Torah — Reb Moshe @ 11:11 pm

“Blessed are you Hashem, Who Straightens the bent.” Doctors are given a license to heal and also to destroy peoples body and minds. They have a loaded weapon in their hands. Don’t trust just any of them with your life. Many give out medications haphazardly not realizing they are poisoning their very patients who would be better off with good diet and exercise. Don’t fall into this endless trap. Most bodies and souls have the ability to heal themselves through better physical and emotional care. It is time to take our lives back. Hashem returns to a person life and good health every day. Just when yesterday, you couldn’t continue anymore, here you are put back together this morning.

Shabbos for study

Filed under: Blog Torah — Reb Moshe @ 10:58 pm

For those that work hard all week long and don’t have as much time to study Torah. During shabbos alone, you can accomplish a weeks worth of Torah study, but you must study every moment an with all your heart. I discovered this when I was a CEO of a company and worked 70 hours a week. When it came to shabbos, I would study every second and he Torah was open for me… So close up the magazines, limit the shmuzzing and study Torah! It’s your gift to take!

Life is a candlestick chart

Filed under: Blog Torah — Reb Moshe @ 10:57 pm

Life is a candlestick chart, you have to build resistance and watch for the turning points. You have to go with the momentum to your advantage. Ride the Fibonacci waves with patience expecting for every up in life there might be a 30% relapse but soon you will go back up if you hold on tightly. When your down, that is when you buy into life as how you serve Hashem when your down, in simple and joyous ways is more important then how you serve Him when your up. When your up, that is when you need to sell, giving to others life. Don’t be greedy but give to others when you feel well and are in a good position in your life. (I traded stocks and forex for years. I hope you like the analogy) We also learn in graphing that you should never rely totally on the charts. There are other factors that come into play and you have to be ready for anything. Never let your emotions completely dictate your decisions and do your research. Learn from others & see how other traders are currently finding success. The same is true in living a Torah lifestyle and investing in yourself. This is your winning stock play, live life smart.

The morning blessing

Filed under: Blog Torah — Reb Moshe @ 10:54 pm

The morning blessings all made sense to me this morning but one, “Raka Haretz Al Hamayim.” What does it matter to me the first thing in the morning that Hashem makes a separation of the earth and water? So I was thinking on this and I realized that we can relate to this blessing in the following way. Without having a foundation and schedual, our life could literally be in shambles. So I am asking Hashem, please let my life make sense today. Let me be organized, let me separate like the earth and water, that my life should be in its place. That everything should go smoothly and be successful today. Blessings….

New Torah thoughts

Filed under: Blog Torah — Reb Moshe @ 4:26 pm

Our Yetzer Hara (evil inclination) wants us to think that we are stagnant in our spiritual growth because we see our daily challenges becoming stronger and we thereby overlook our constant spiritual improvements. Every day bares a new set of challenges that we grow from.The greater the person, the stronger his Yetzer Hara becomes. This causes our good deeds to become overlooked. We believe we are stuck in the same place yet we are far from that place. We only seem to notice the stronger Yetzer Hara but we don’t see our stronger Yetzer HaTov. My friends, don’t compare your soul to another, be the best that you can be. Only joy will help you realize how far you have come and grown. Your really not stuck like you think, your free. Now live your life as a free man. Why do we say the daily passages about going out of Egypt in the prayer service? It is to remind us that Hashem is taking us out every day from the grips of negativity. We are free men to grow and prosper. The Yetzer Hara wants us to think we are in constant captivity but Torah study frees us from his grips. So no, your not stagnant at all. It is only his allusion. A free man is above his Yeter Hara, he is above his imagination & thereby doesn’t fear the angels. Through Torah study and prayer, he is never stagnant but is mastering his soul every day. So don’t look backwards and see only the challenges, take hold of your good points and bask into the light of the Shechinah.
