(Thank you Shuli for sending this post from Rabbi Katz's facebook page =the elevation seminar:)
"When your consciousness is occupied with negative thoughts which are rooted in emotional delusion - it dulls and desensitizes the heart. This effect is called the “foreskin of the heart,” i.e. a blocked heart.
This psychological state actually causes a damaging effect in the higher spiritual worlds -- blocking them off from receiving divine spiritual influx from their Source.
This causes destruction in the world itself.
However, when one thinks positive thoughts they actually cause fixing and healing in the world, and through this kind of thinking the heart is purified and the negative thinking patterns are expelled.
The result of this practice is that one can ultimately access supernatural abilities using their consciousness."
Rav Nachman of Breslov - Likutei Eitzos, Machsovos V'Hirhurim, #4
This is the power that hakaras hatov gives to us! To thank Hashem we have to search and recognize the good that Hashem is sending each of us in every moment. When we do this on a regular basis, we won't have space in our head for the negative thoughts.
We will IYH continue our "Reaching Your Essence" chaburah on Monday at 12 pm. Summer hours are changed from Sunday night to Monday afternoon. Looking forward to hearing your voices.
