I am Holy

Filed under: Blog Torah — Reb Moshe @ 5:44 pm

Our holy souls have been bound to our physical body in order to fulfil the commandments. This doesn’t make it easy for something so pure to be in unusual territory. A world full of sin and the cravings of the body. I constantly tell myself, “You are holy and pure”. Trying to remind myself of the holiness of my soul. All Jewish souls have total purity and when we connect to this purity, it is impossible to sin and not be attached to Hashem. Therefore, we have to remind ourselves of this attachment, strengthening it by speaking about it. So I tell myself, “Moshe, you are pure and holy”. In hopes to strengthen this attachment.

  2. have you heard the song by shuli rand where he fights his yetzer hara? the refrain is basically him insisting that he is the son of the king, precious stones from head to toe. (taken from Rebbe Nachman’s story of course)

    imh”o that song i think really helps to flesh out this Torah.
