The Eighth Day, Chanukah Conclusion.


B"H

The Path of Light

When He made the world, He made two ways to repair each thing:
With harshness or with compassion.
With a slap or with a caress.
With darkness or with light.
And He looked at the light and saw that it was good.
Darkness and harsh words may be necessary. But He never called them good...
Even if you could correct another person with harsh words the One Above receives no pleasure from it. When He sees his creatures heal one another with caring and with kindness, that is when He shines His smile upon us.

The Last War

Some people are waiting for a final, apocalyptic war.
But the final war is not fought on battlefields, nor at sea, nor in the skies above.
Neither is it a war between leaders or nations.
The final war is fought in the heart of each human being, with the armies of his or her deeds in this world.
The final war is the battle of Chanukah and the miracle of light.

The Seventh Night of Chanukah.!!!!!!!!

Normal Miracles

These things people call amazing coincidences, synchronicity, small miracles -- this is the way the world is supposed to work.
It is only that the world is in slumber, like a sleeping person who does not see, does not hear, does not speak -- so that nothing distinguishes his head from his feet, his heart from his brain. So too, the world lies deep in a dream where anything is possible, but nothing seems to have a goal. Where only chaos reigns.
It takes only one person to open his eyes, his ears, his mind and his heart and the objects of this world fall into place and work together as a single whole. Synchronized. As they were meant to be.

Shabbat and The Fourth Night of Chanukah....!!!!!



B"H

All the world's problems stem from light being withheld.
Our job then, is to correct this. Wherever we find light, we must rip away its casings, exposing it to all, letting it shine forth to the darkest ends of the earth.
Especially the light you yourself hold.

The Third Night of Chanukah....!.!!!

B"H

Without miracles, we might come to believe that the laws of physics define reality. Once we witness the inexplicable, we see that there is a higher reality. And then we look back at physics and say, "This too is a miracle."
The miracle of a small flask of oil burning for eight days was this sort of miracle.Then there are those small miracles that occur every day. Those acts of synchronicity we call 'coincidence' because, in them, G-d prefers to remain anonymous. But when we open our eyes and hearts, we see there is truly no place void of this wondrous, unlimited G-d. These were the sort of miracles the Maccabees saw in their battles against the mighty Greek army.

The Second Night of Chanukah....!..!!

B"H

The Ancient Greeks couldn't understand us Jews.
They asked us to describe our G-d. We said He could not be described.
They asked us to explain how He created a world out of nothing. We said it could not be explained.
They told us that which could not be explained could not exist.
And so continued the debate between philosophy and Torah for many centuries. Step by step, men described and explained everything they saw, until there was no room left for miracles, for prophecy, for divine providence, for G-d.It was then that the fountains of wisdom opened for humankind and we gazed into the mysteries of the atom, of energy fields, of black holes in space.Suddenly, the universe became once again a wondrous place. Suddenly, we discovered that existence itself could not truly be described or explained. In truth, the greatest mystery is that anything exists at all.Today, it is okay to believe in the supernatural, for the "Laws of Nature" have been deposed from their throne. There is no reason to deny free choice, for the iron chain of Cause and Effect has been loosened. Today, once again, scientists talk about the oneness of the cosmos and a Consciousness within it.Today, if anyone should tell you that Science has all the answers, respond that yes, it does. Its answer is to stand in awe at the design of this universe in which we live.

The First Night of Chanukah....!...!


B"H

On the first night of Chanukah all eight candle holders stand before you. But you light only one. Tomorrow night you shall light two. You know that eventually you will light all eight.From which we learn two things:
(1) Move step by step in life. Take things on at a pace you can handle.
(2) Always grow. Always keep moving.

If you did one good thing yesterday, do two today. Your ultimate achievement is always one step ahead.
