Where can Insiration be Found

Filed under: deep reflections — Reb Moshe @ 2:29 am

I have been thinking the last few days how I can make the torah videos more inspirational and better. By taking these few months break, I am able to look back at them with a more clear mind. I’m able to see faults I would otherwise not notice and I am also able to see potential. I want to make all the videos in HD, I think Eretz Yisrael is very beautiful and I want to show in high definition detail its beauty. I’m also thinking to film in wide screen on a slower format. Lots more fades from different scenic views. Changing entire location within each film. Outlining the content before the films. Bringing along someone to take the video. Thinking of learning the guitar to do some strumming. A little more action shots. More quick changes. Pictures taken at scenes. I want to be more inspirational. Give more inspiration. Have videos avaiable in DVD for HD viewing. Better text on videos, longer editing time so that each video is completely a film in and of itself that can be watched many times over. Honestly, I don’t know how we all make it. I feel like the music, videos and reading content today is lacking in inspiration. People need to be able to server Hashem in their own way, feel more free to search themselves. I find nothing out there inspires me and I wonder if others feel the same. Shabbos to me is where I get all my strength but what about the weekdays? They should also be inspirational. Why can’t Jewish music today give us what we need? Why do we feel so removed from these Tishes that we see videos of online? We need more inspiration!
I feel like over the years I help set the standard for some of the Torah content on the web. I was the first to do Torah Videos, then the first to do them in holy places here but now they must reach out in a more spiritual way. They have to be in HD. Anyway, this is my flow of thoughts for today. I am an unrealistic dreamer. The amount of time needed to do this impossible financially for me. But at least I have something more to pray for.

    Hashra’ah (inspiration) has the same gematria as Tikvah (hope).

    When I first heard this gematria from my Rav, I made a song for it. The “Hashra’ah Tikvah” song!

    I’ve also cried to your nachamu song many many times. It’s most helpful when the pain of golus hard. Searching for a way to respond, I remember your song.
