Extended Elul

September 28, 2011

Hashem in His great compassion extended my awake up call to do Teshuva this year. I have had over a half a year to reflect and analyze my deeds and behavior; I hope to have gained from the experience. One of the biggest gains was a deep understanding as to the importance of doing an hour of Hisbodedus every day. As the Ramchal writes in Derech Eitz Chaim if a person has a daily hour of contemplating how to serve Hashem he is guaranteed to succeed and otherwise he will fail. May we strengthen ourselves to serve Hashem on our own initiative and not need any awake up calls.
May Klal Yisroel be granted a happy year full of blessings in all spiritual and physical aspects and may we merit seeing the full redemption this year.

Training Course

Hashem’s training course is progressing very nicely. The message is loud and clear: There is nothing besides Hashem and we should subjugate ourselves to His will. I think that I’m even getting the message a little bit at a time.

Mazel Tov!

Town Appliance acquired a new IT consultant. The new recruit about doubled the average age of the IT department. It was a very interesting negotiation, while the employee offered his services at a low price because he was eager to get the job, the manager insisted on paying full price. Guess who is running the show?
