What do you Really Want?

Your own preciousness

I really don’t know how much I am worth. If G-d would give me a taste of my own neshama [soul], my whole life would change.
The question is not only if you know that you are precious. Because if I walk around and say, “I am precious, but you… listen, I know you are not,” it means you never tasted your own preciousness. Because your own preciousness is so divine and so holy that if you mamash know what is precious about you, then every person you meet, you bring forth their preciousness too.

Who are all the big Rebbes? Why when I stand next to the Lubavicher Rebbe, when I stand next to the Amshinover Rebbe, I am a different person? Because, at that moment, that which is precious about me, is mamash shining. So their presence is so special.

What do I really love?

Rebbe Nachman says… Do you really think we love what we want to love? Most of us love everything we don’t really want to love.

Friends, sometimes you can spend a thousand years, and only in the last minute of your life is it clear to you that everything you did in your life you didn’t want to do it. “This is not what I want.”

When do you reach the moment that it is clear to you; “What do I really love? What do I really want?” It is at those great moments when you are alone with G-d. When your own preciousness is shining so much. We need this the most.

Why is it that when you stand by the holy Wall something happens to you and you realize, that maybe all those things you want, you don’t really want.

Friends, I just want you to open your hearts. What is the holy Wall? How did King Solomon build the holy Temple? King Solomon collected the preciousness of every human being in the world. Unbelievable. And from that he built the House of G-d. Obviously he didn’t build it just from stones. That is just the outside. But the inside….

Daily Torah Quote

Joke of the day

The Ropshitzer Rebbe was famous for his sense of humor.

Once one of his followers asked him, “What is the reason for your custom to dress in only white cotton clothes?”

The Ropshitzer Rebbe said, “I cannot reveal this to you now. You must first prepare yourself. Immerse yourself in the ritual bath eighteen times every day. After three weeks come to me and I will reveal the reason to you.”

The follower did exactly as the Rebbe ordered, and after three weeks time he proudly went to the Rebbe.

“I did all that you asked,” said the follower. “Please reveal to me the secret.”

The Rebbe said, “Because it is cheaper.”

The follower was confounded: “What? Because it’s cheaper? Why did I have to immerse eighteen times a day for three weeks? Why couldn’t you just tell me?”

The Rebbe answered, “If I would have just told you, then you would have just told someone else, and he would have told someone else, and so on…. And before you know it the price would go up.”
