Do we remember?


how long has it been?

not that many years, if you think about it.

if you think about it, that is.

no, we have not forgotten.

articles run almost monthly about it.

remember,

remember,

remember.

and so we all remember.

right?

yes,

we remember the war.

we remember the deaths.

we remember the great minds lost,

the great human losess.

so, yes we remember.

but do we really?

do we remember the everlasting message we learn from it?

and what is that message?

a great song and video on the message just below.

Dreams…

Long- lost thoughts drift in the mist of time…

dreams come and go…

Words are said and constantly forgotten…

People walk in and out of our lives all the time…

Deeds are done and forgotten…

Everything comes and go as if they never occurred.

 

Alas, is time but an illusion,

buried time for naught,

Dreams long forgotten worth nothing at all?

We spend so much time on things that turn out to be nothing at all,

petty and soon forgotten.

 

Are they all for nothing?

 

In a place far away,

and what goes on there no one can truly say,

the master scribe sits,

recording every deed,

every word.

 

each prayer is used to bring relief,

or sealed for the future.

 

Each tear used to heal the sick,

spark a dream,

another brick on the heavenly kingdom.

 

Each deed is forever imprinted,

on the world it will forever have an impact,

a brick added,

or subtracted,

each one does something in a not not so small way.

 

So make sure each word is truly what you mean to say,

each smile to brighten another’s day,

each deed carefully measured,

because it will make an impact on the world,

if not today,

then sometime far away,

and each thing,

will come back to you one day.

License plates


recently, I was on a bus when I suddenly started noticing –

the license plates!

 

have you ever looked carefully at a license plate?

if you have, you’ll realize that each plate has a unquie set of numbers and letters.

if you look further,

you’ll even find out some stuff about the person whose car it is.

 

you’ll find out where he lives,

is he’s traveling here or if he lives here.

sometimes,

there are even unique letters formed to create a message.

 

look closer.

If the plate is old,

then you know the person is probably older,

English: Sonora_mexico_license_plate

and has had this car for a while

they are probably also a more experienced driver.

 

let’s think a little deeper.

each license plate is different,

each one with a flavor and a message all its own –

who has the time and patience to do that?

 

don’t they ever just get tired of this boring, thankless job?

would anybody really care if they are all the same?

 

but, no,

day in,

day out,

more and more license plates appear.

 

like this,

robbers are tracked and found,

cases are solved,

people can recognize which car is theirs,

and we learn a powerful lesson.

 

what can we possibly learn from a license plate?

 

Take a look at the people around you.

 

Each person looks different,

each person has amazing stories to tell you,

each person has a story all their own –

secrets, dreams, friendships, etc.

 

Who has the patience to sit down and decide,

day in,

day out,

that this person should live here,

this person should look like this,

this person should get this?

 

who has the patience to concern themselves with trivial,

everyday matters of over 7 billion people?

 

I’ll tell you who.

 

G-d does.

 

He never takes a break,

He creates people anew every day,

each person with their own purpose.

 

He decides these things- and more

every single day.

 

Rosh chodosh is coming very soon,

make this month meaningful-

know, you have a reason.

where is the love


a re-post from teen inspiration.

Where is the Love?

It’s a small world we live in,

A small state we sit in

But we stay strong-

sometimes too strong,

leading turning in to turning wrong.

Drama attracted up by news,

Who cares who’s projecting whose views,

Leading a world tortured to drama,

Addicted by the glamour of mobbing trauma

Overseas, across the seas, in the borders of this country

We raise high fists against terrorists; we claim to be fighting a war.

But the fight won’t nullify the battles we’ve got inside

This small, strong nation’s factioned corps.

Each remaining with the mindspace to understand only to their tastes

And to have love for one type of race, leaving room to discriminate,

With

Gaps of comprehending other frameworks and lacks of fathoming the way others work

Only can lead to distaste, misunderstanding… and then hate.

Because you only know your own kind,

Stay with your own kind, break bread with your own kind,

Understand the values and lifestyles of one kind.

But drop the d, then it’s “kin,” and you’ve added family- but each is different.))

Then, with love only for your own, there becomes the space to disown,

Blurring the family tree lines in favor of redefined the nationality.

It’s killing people, causing crying
Women pained, their dignity dying
Could you practice the tolerance you preach
And let her sit in the back if she so please
It’s got me questioning our commitments
To the principles that we teach
Did we forget to live governed by love
Or by belief that Someone’s above

faith


I just made that video on youtube.

enjoy,and please share your comments.

On tightropes-part 4


She watched the rain as it poured down in sheets,

And suddenly realized how utterly defenseless,

man is.

 

Man who,

is certain of their strength,

as they give or take lives seemingly at will,

a few drops of rain,

send them scurrying into their homes,

and they have no control over it at all.

 

she went under the shelter of a store’s roof,

waiting,

for the storm to pass,

or at least abate…

 

to be continued……

4pillars of prayer


 

people are always talking about,

how important it is to pray.

this is very true,

but,

how does one know if they prayed well?

what are the key elements of prayer?

these are,

in my view,

the four pillars of personal prayer:<as in prayer,just to hashem ,not from a sidduir>

  1. consistently-believe it or not,prayer from the heart on a daily basis only improves the power of your prayer.why?because you have a much deeper bond with g-d.
  2. concentration-if you can put away all other thoughts,and just concentrate on the prayer,or better yet,turn every thought into a prayer-you will be able to pray much better-and have gained a vital life skill.
  3. heartfelt-this requires no explanation.
  4. change-a good prayer will change you.you should come out of the prayer feeling fresh,with a newfound knowledge or a committment to change for the better.

 

which other ones can you think of?
