Emuna Our Faith in G-d

      The smallest amount of Faith moves mountains. That tells us how strong our minds are and how powerful faith can be. But it would also be a crime to move a mountain because it was not just dropped there out of nowhere, it grew in that place by various forces from elements in a particular way to help produce it and for it to spring up in that very spot. Your life is entirely your making. Man is the only one of G-d’s creation that is given free will to shape their own life. Everything else in creation has to follow the laws of nature that G-d set forth. Man has a choice to shape their lives to G-d will or to their own will. We have more power given to us by our Creator. Our thoughts manifest our reality. If those thoughts are negative these thoughts are not in G-d’s will for us and in turn, we begin to experience His blessing as a curse when we are out of balance to His will. If you live your life foolishly then you cannot avoid disaster. G-d forbid If someone jumps off the mountain, it might feel good and may feel like you are flying until you hit the ground. This is what it means to say Ignorance is bliss. This is dangerous. Man will perish with lack of knowledge of G-d. Looking for freedom from G-d might make a person feel good briefly, but eventually, they will be underground because of that decision and it will be too late. -Rivka Sari 2001 Shemin Tov L’Moshiach...
Passover and Hashem’s Divine Light

Passover and Hashem’s Divine Light

There’s really only one difference between Matzah and Chametz. They’re both made from flour and water, both baked in an oven, and both provide nourishment. But one stays flat and humble, while the other fills itself with hot air. The Hebrew of these two words reveals this fact. Matza מצה = “unleavened bread”. Chametz חמץ = “leaven”, or “fermented dough”. By the way, chometz / חומץ = vinegar, and chamutz / חמוץ = sour.   The letter Chet ח there is no escape past the first letter of Chumetz The Letter Hey ה  there is escape in the word Matza That’s why matzah is a key ingredient for leaving your own personal Egypt to rid ourselves of our personal Pharo: As long as we are full of ourselves with delusions of self-importance, there’s no way to break out and grow to a new level. There is no way one can relate to others and have healthy relationships if we are all puffed up. Once we make ourselves small, we can fit through any bars of our personal  prison cell and we can fly past any cloud that may get in our way. Chametz (leaven) dough that has risen symbolizes inflated ego and arrogance, while Matzah that keeps a low profile, represents humility and suspension of the self, becoming a conduit for a higher flow of Divine light. Essential Oils helps to overcome anxiety, depression, feeling out of control of our lives, pain, loss (berevement), confusion, insomnia/sleeping too much, disease, etc which is the Chumetz we want to remove. Essential oil also help us regain calmness, clarity and focus back into our lives which is Matza that...

Fragrance of Torah

     Torah was given with thunder, lightning, smoke, shaking ground, and a shofar blast. How do we experience the Torah with all our senses today? Song of Songs 5:13 His cheeks are like beds of spices, banks of perfume, his lips are like lilies. שיר השרים ה:יג לְחָיָו כַּעֲרוּגַת הַבֹּשֶׂם מִגְדְּלוֹת מֶרְקָחִים שִׂפְתוֹתָיו שׁוֹשַׁנִּים נֹטְפוֹת מוֹר עֹבֵר: BT Shabbat 88b Rabbi Yehoshuah ben Levi said: What does it mean:  “His cheeks are beds of spices?” (Song of Songs 5:13) With every single utterance that came from the mouth of the Holy Blessed One, the whole world was filled with [the fragrance of] spices. And since the first utterance filled it, where did the second utterance go? The Holy Blessed One took the wind from God’s storehouse and brought around each [fragrance], one by one, as it is stated: “His lips are like lilies. They drip flowing myrrh.” (ibid.) Do not read “shoshanim” [lilies], rather “sheshonim” [repeat]. תלמוד בבלי שבת פח ב ואמר רבי יהושע בן לוי: מאי דכתיב לחיו כערוגת הבשם – כל דבור ודבור שיצא מפי הקדוש ברוך הוא נתמלא כל העולם כולו בשמים. וכיון שמדיבור ראשון נתמלא, – דיבור שני להיכן הלך? – הוציא הקדוש ברוך הוא הרוח מאוצרותיו, והיה מעביר ראשון ראשון, שנאמר שפתותיו שושנים נוטפות מור עבר, אל תקרי שושנים אלא ששונים. Sefat Emet on Bemidbar In any case, every creature can sense the frangrance of Torah, just like in: “the whole world was filled with [the fragrance of] spices” (BT Shabbat 88b). This means that even those who were unable to receive the core of Torah could absorb its good fragrance, as is the case with...

Friends Who Spark New Light. Sharing the Spiritual Unity Essence of Ketoret

Friends Who Spark New Light. Sharing the Spiritual Unity Essence of Ketoret

A beautiful thought and light was given to me which was sparked by a conversation that I had with a friend last evening. We were in a sense having a small Hakhel. I thought deeply about the conversation and was moved in something very profound that she said. This morning during my prayers it sparked even more light. Thank you Sherry for the illumination! Inspiration: When Moshiach arrives it al will be distilled down to the sweet essence of our love/obedience to HaShem, all his people dispersed the world over will unite each with their unique fragrance which will come together to make up the True Ketoret which symbolizes Unity, when the 11 fragrances meet up with HaShem, number 12. All  the Nations will be healed. “He shall take a censerful of burning coals from the altar, and the fill of his hands of finely ground ketoret; and he shall bring [these] inside the curtain. He shall place the ketoret upon the fire before G‑d; and the cloud of the incense shall envelop the covering of the [Ark of] Testimony” . . . Vayikra (Leviticus)16:12–13 Maimonides describes the function of the ketoret as the vanquishing of the unpleasant odors that might otherwise have pervaded the Holy Temple. “Since many animals were slaughtered in the sacred place each day,  its smell would doubtless have been like the smell of a slaughterhouse. Therefore G‑d commanded that the ketoret be burned twice a day, each morning and afternoon, to lend a pleasing fragrance to [the Holy Temple] and to the garments of those who served in it” (Guide for the Perplexed 3:45). On Yom Kippur, in addition to the regular ketoret offerings, the kohen gadol would enter the Holy of Holies with a...
