Bitachon Or Hishtadlus (17) Certainty As A Nation
Length: 50 min
Based on the writings of Rav Chaim Cohen, the Chalban, Tallelei Chaim, Sefer Bereishis, P. 557. (partial review). Trusting in Hashem, yet making a minimum amount of hishtadlus, depending on the appropriate needs of the generation and the individual. Accessing extraordinary divine assistance. Being involved in tikkun haSh'chinah ("repairing" the Divine Presence) by working on behalf of the tzibbur (community). What is our kavanah (intent) during learning? When our personal worries are much more important than our pain over the continued desolate state of the Beis HaMikdash and Yerushalayim. A soldier endangers his life to save others. What are we doing with our lives - stop TALKING and CONTEMPLATING, and START DOING. Individuals, as opposed to Klal Yisrael, are not permitted to rely on miracles. Hashem's command to settle our land and not worry about the nations of the world. We should only ever worry what Hashem thinks of us, not the world. The "naturally" inexplicable miracles we have experienced in Eretz Israel.
