We learn how to rely on our spiritual strength throughout our lives. We’ll gain awareness that Hashem is truly with us.

Tonight, Monday, February 8th, at 8 pm (EST), come explore some uniquely-Breslov approaches to understanding your fears and transforming them into peace of mind and even joy.

Long And Winding Road

sunset-on-road-1408056“All of a person’s journeys and all the traveling around that he must do a because of a blemish in his emunah, which is, in essence, idolatry.

“For if a person believed with perfect emunah that the Holy One, Blessed be He, is capable of supplying him with all his needs, he would not undertake a single journey. ” —Rebbe Nachman of Breslov  (Kitzur Likutey Moharan, 40; Reb Nosson)

Worrying Won’t Help-Honest

CREDIT TO Arturo De Frias MarquesDoes it sometimes feel like you’re barely hanging on and all you can do is worry?

You already know that worry, anxiety, and fear aren’t good for your physical health. But the spiritual side-effects are equally pervasive and even more damaging. According to the teachings of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov, these side-effects negatively impact every aspect of your psycho-spiritual self.

Why is it important to articulate and examine what fear, and its cousins, anxiety and worry, do to us spiritually?

Because fear can creep into virtually all our thoughts and feelings. Once we truly understand the pain it causes and the quicksand it pushes us into, we are more likely to find the motivation we need to get rid of it.

No one does this sifting, clarifying, and analyzing better than Rebbe Nachman of Breslov.

Rebbe Nachman was light-years beyond of today’s psychological experts in his depth and breadth of knowledge about the psyche.  Today the experts kindasorta know that fear, worry and anxiety might possibly be related to anger, depression, and other painful feelings. But, they don’t have the wisdom or the emunah, to give us lasting, soul-elevating answers rooted in Truth.

Rebbe Nachman clearly shows us that Continue reading Worrying Won’t Help-Honest

Welcome To Your World, Be Fearless

124231main_NEW_extrasolar-browseIs the World your (huge) responsibility? Read on…

Recently I read an article which bristled with distaste as it questioned the value of Torah-based personal growth books. Focusing on the self is a selfish indulgence, the article said (in much stronger words), and went on to express the need for the publication of more Universal, non-self-referential, and brilliantly-intellectual explorations of Torah Judaism.

I get the point.

It might seem selfish to focus on the self.

But the truth is that the self, the neshama-in-this-body, is an entire world according to Torah.

More than that: Each of us is responsible for this world called “Self.” Continue reading Welcome To Your World, Be Fearless
