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

poor man came to the house of an elderly couple. Unfortunately they had nothing in the house to give him except an old piece of fish “from before the time of Noah’s Ark and the flood.” Out of desperation, they served him this fish and the next thing they knew he had to be rushed to the hospital. The elderly couple, of course, accompanied him to the hospital but, unfortunately, watched him die in front of their eyes.

At the funeral the elderly woman was crying uncontrollably and her husband was having a hard time trying to console her. She was hysterically screaming, “The fish killed him, the fish killed him.”

The husband who couldn’t stand to see his wife in such a state comforted her and said, “My darling, it’s really not that bad. We had the merit of fulfilling three good deeds: Welcoming guests, visiting the sick, and escorting the deceased!”
