    161 True Reconciliation

    161 True Reconciliation

    If you're apologizing because you feel bad, are uncomfortable or don't want to be disliked, you haven't apologized. It's all about you. So when you show up to synagogue and want to experience true repentance, stop thinking about yourself and what you want and how you feel bad. Take a few minutes and think about G-d.

    160 Life Is a Workshop

    Everything we experience in life offers us an opportunity to refine ourselves and become a better person. This is the reason G-d created an imperfect world with challenges and tests. Every test is an opportunity to raise ourselves higher. And it can't be realized without us going through the process. Life is, after all, a workshop.

    159 Is Your Spouse Like G-d?

    Is your spouse like G-d? In more ways than you may want to admit. The correlations between your relationship with your spouse and your relationship with G-d are strikingly similar.

    We all find ourselves in a dark place at different points in our life. A place of despair and hopelessness. A place from which there seems to be no hope. What we must remember is that the moon is darkest when it is closest to the sun. A dark place is never far from light.

    156 Would You Force Your Child To?

    156 Would You Force Your Child To?

    We all know how difficult it is to exercise self-discipline. This is why when we are raised with discipline it makes it so much easier. Structure and limits become ingrained within us. When we raise our children without structure and limits, when we are a yes parent, we aren't being nice. We are being very, very mean. Why? Our children will suffer greatly from this later in life. As difficult as it is for a parent to implement structure and limits, it's far more difficult to later in life.

Meaningful Guides

I so appreciate these teachings that are short but highly meaningful and motivating. I just started Rabbi Weinstein’s book and have already had several significant insights. I am not Jewish but respect hearing this point of view because these teachings resonate with Truth. Thank you, Rabbi for these podcasts that I so look forward to each week.
