How to Destroy the Fly in 10 steps

Filed under: Blog Torah — Reb Moshe @ 6:31 am

There is this fly that keeps bugging around my ear. How should I get rid of him?

1. Stay clean as flies like to hover around dirt. Don’t hang around places where this fly likes to go

2. Pray for my strength over him and his falling into weakness

3. Do whatever positive things irritate the fly

4. Be happy no matter how much the fly bothers one

5. Learn to understand how the fly works and how it has become so good at being irritating

6. Be near those who are not affected as much by the fly and are able to overcome the fly

7. Go the opposite direction of the fly

8. Never Fear the fly

9. Don’t needlessly draw attention to oneself so that the fly notices you.

10. The fly hates it when you simply ignore him and he then just goes away. Especially when you learn Torah.


  1. buy some bug spray and a fly swatter.

  4. This is not about a fly…it’s about a “fly”…it’s about people who are like a fly, when they bug you, and what to do about it. At least I think that’s what this post is about…if not, then woops, sorry…disregard.. 🙂
