Yasher Koach!!

Together, in the past six weeks we have finished the seforim

The Six Constant Mitzvos, Bilvavi Mishkan Evneh 1,  half of Bilvavi Mishkan Evneh 2, and almost half of In Forest Fields.


What do we have to show for this?  Hopefully, a deeper relationship with Hashem.

In Bilvavi part 2, at the end of the sefer, Rav Schwartz writes that the numerical value of Purim is the same as sheilah (question) and also the same as shalev (serene), "because when one nullifies all his questions, he has true serenity. (IYH we can reach this level on purim!!!)

Rav Schwartz: "This is the deepest level that a created being can reach.  At this level, one totally nullifies himself before Hashem.  He asks no questions, but walks with Hashem with simplicity.  The closer one is to the awareness that he can have no questions, and is always happy with Hashem's actions, the closer he is to Hashem.  The further one is from this awareness, the further he is from Hashem."

That is something to aspire to indeed!  However, the main point is to know that we can be there on  Purim and begin to prepare ourselves for it over the next 13 days.

Countdown starting now.

Chodesh Tov and thank you for being a part of this journey with me.

Lots of Love, aviva rus
