The time is now
Thanks for reinforcing the message of my destination soon to be realized as Spoken by Hashem, I must do as He has Spoken.

The only place I know that has really helped my neshama in her spiritual struggle is this Chabad; now I wonder, how to find the mitzvah that belongs to this place alone. I tell you, honestly, I do want to find it.
Not long ago, here in Chabad, I read an advice from the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, to someone who where very fond of playing chess. The Rebbe advised him not to play on the entire Shabbat, no matter if the game were lost. I took the advice to heart for myself. It's not really a mitzvah, but it looks like. And Oh surprise, all my game discomforts went away.

Thank you so much for these thoughtful words, so full of meaning.
These are words to remember even if we do not get a chance to wander throughout G-d's beautiful natural settings. If we take our vacations at home we can still be inspired by this gorgeous video. Beauty and peace completely enveloped me as I watched and listened to this reassuring and instructional message. I am sure I will watch it again ... and again.
Thank you.

Fullfillment.
Shalom.
Thank you for those beautiful views and words. I am planning to visit Tzfat and Meron this year and will say Torah at the last resting place of The Ari and at the tomb of Shimon Bar Yochai.

i am looking
i want to take those words with me wherever i go, but i know it will be a challenge to remember them when i fall into my sick mind.
however, it can take me higher when in the time of feeling truth.

Dear Rabbi Freeman,
although I said it already many times how much I love this video, the pictures as well as the words. I could look at it every day.
I see it is true. Every word of it and also every picture.
When I think of "Chabad", what it means to me, I think of this vacation meditation.
It makes me happy and content and thankful. I understand things in my life I would not be able to understand without hearing these words (and the pictures
are part of it. The first picture is extraordinary beautiful and makes me feel, that I am part of G-ds creation. Very tiny in this huge universe.
Allow me to thank you for all of this again. Everything belongs to it. Even the strings of the guitar and the beautiful voice, G-d gave you.

I have been at the place waiting fore me
Without this wonderful film and text I would not have known its meaning. Thank you so much.
I was at the Adriatic sea in Italy, and Hashem was there too.
