The Power of Positive Thought: Parshah Shemot

"Think good and it will be good" is not just a feel-good slogan. It means that by trusting in G-d, we actually elicit His help from on High. Find out what happened when Moses doubted if he was deserving of G-d's help. (Based on Likutei Sichos volume 36, Sicha 1.)

Correction @ 19:43 The Author of the Chovovos wasn't the Ramcha"l. It was Rabeinu Bachya ben Joseph ibn Pakuda Reply

The Experience... When I found out I needed a double-lung transplant, I was afraid for not very long. I know that family and friends were concerned about me having this huge operation. However I knew it was the only way, in this world, I could continue to live. I completely trusted in G-d that He would see to whatever the outcome would be and I was sure, in my heart, that all would be good. I have never felt trust so profoundly as I did during that time. It has been seven years since my double lung transplant...and all has gone well. B'H' Reply

The Power of Positive Thought BS"D Wow! Thank you Rabbi! This is so powerful and rings so true. I have a question: If someone trusts in this way and it doesn't happen; what would that mean then? They didn't really trust? Will G-d always make it good? Won't they feel deep disappointment? Reply

Once again Rabbi Moshe speaks the truth, consoles me, and changes my life a little. It's exactly like he says, we Catholics are supposed to believe in a kind of passive way. And also, we can ask a Priest, yes, but in the end we're supposed to accept and obey and we cannot discuss or argue or even question what he says. Ever since I was a kid though, I've always wanted to change this world to the better and I have to question things constantly to find truth. I find myself in accordance with Jewish teachings almost always which is tough cause I'm living in a Christian community.
