Your words have helped me more than I can articulate. You also made me crack a smile with your sense of humor.

This is so revealing. I am not Jewish, but I am a Kabbalah student and have actually changed!! But your words just before Yom Kippur make me think about so many things. I think this is God's way of telling me: This is what you have to do. I will keep coming back to your video until I can assimilate every bit of learning. Blessings.

My cousin mentioned this talk in a conversation. The topic is very healing and unbelievably important. Thank you for making this accessable.

question please ?
First of all, I learn a lot from this video. I said learn & not learned because each & every time I repeat this video I learn something new. Thank you.
I am curious, when you use the term 'resentment' does that only apply to the classical situation when someone is a recipient of a negative act or speech and no reconciliation was ever accomplished or just something like having a more clever & intelligent sibling or parent or child which you think limits your abilities? Thank your for all your efforts.

After I have taken away the power from my tormentor (my brother) should I invite him to my child's wedding?

your book
Started reading your book: God of our understanding. It's brilliant. I love it, very clear. I am in AA & alanon. I hope you do some individual talks on the 12 steps for Jewish people. I already listened to most of Yisrael Pinson's talks , which are great. We need to refresh our prayer and meditation daily.

Rabbi Taub. i didn't even finish listening to the lecture and stopped to write this long-long comment.

it is brilliant. just brilliant. for several years i listen to the lectures of the great Rabbis on the internet. 95% of them are very-very good. i heard many Rabbis, probably many dozens. you, Rabbi, stand alone. maybe it is not you, maybe this is just the topic of your lecture makes it great. in any case i propose you to move to Saint Louis. we have Chabad here, besides this is a baseball town, as you know. i would like to meet you and i would like you to be my Teacher. yes, i know - this is a wishful thinking and it will not happen. but i will also be happy if you continue to have more such lectures for many-many Jews.

this was you first lecture i heard. let me listen/watch some more and then we'll see if the offer to move to St. Louis still stands.

With great appreciation.
