Do Not Lose Today

by Steve Maraboli

“This day has been handed to us to shape as we choose. However, this blessing is often overlooked because we tend to focus on the two days in every week that we should not worry about. Two days that dilute our experience of today with an injection of anxiety and fear.

One of these days is yesterday; with all its mistakes and stresses, its victories and losses, its aches and pains. Yesterday has come and passed. There is not a thing you can do to bring back yesterday. We cannot undo anything that happened. We cannot un-say a single word we said. Yesterday is gone.

The other day we should not worry about yet Continue reading

Fight The Good Fight

Days grow shorter and the nights are getting long
Feels like we’re running out of time
Every day it seems much harder tellin’ right from wrong
You got to read between the lines

Don’t get discouraged, don’t be afraid, we can
Make it through another day
Make it worth the price we pay

The Good Book says Continue reading

LIVE In The Present

For many people, sadness and suffering is not a result of present experiences. Rather it is pain caused by regretting and resenting the past, or worrying about the future.

Living in the present saves you from needless emotional pain. Additionally, keeping one’s mind on the present is necessary to concentrate on the important tasks of the day.

Christians Look to Torah Portion to Prove Solar Eclipse is the “Shadow of God”

For centuries, the weekly Torah portion was the exclusive domain of the Jewish people. However, non-Jews have recently started to look into the Torah portion for instruction and meaning as well.

Prominent Christian leaders told Breaking Israel News they have found connections to the upcoming solar eclipse in Saturday’s Torah portion and its modern day implications.

“The time has come when non-Jews are realizing they have been taught lies. Why would people want a counterfeit when there is an original? We study the Torah portions to connect with the Jews all over world and because we believe the Torah is still relevant today,” Pastor Mark Biltz, the bestselling author of “Blood Moons,” told Breaking Israel News. “I bring in commentaries by Rashi, Rambam, Ramban and others because of the incredible insights. Non-Jews are discovering what they have missed by not studying in context.”

“I have always heard from my Israeli Jewish friends how the Torah portion has been shown over and over again to be relevant to current events in Israel,”  explained Bob O’Dell, co-founder of Root-Source, “and now I am starting to see it for myself.”

O’Dell, a student of astronomy for the last 35 years, discovered this upcoming Friday’s exceedingly rare North Pole eclipse, as first reported by Breaking Israel News.

The total solar eclipse will take place over the North Pole on Friday, March 20, coinciding with the beginning of the Hebrew month of Nissan, the first month in the Biblical calendar year. The particular timing of Friday’s solar occurrence has never happened before in human history. Continue reading

Just Do It

By Moshe Bryski

Back in 1981, when I was attending rabbinical college in Boston, there was a young rabbi — fresh out of seminary — who founded a small congregation in the Boston suburb South Brookline. He would often hang out with us as “one of the guys.” From the day he started up his synagogue, he was quite successful. He developed a strong following and quickly put his name on the map. I often wondered to myself wherein lay the key to his success and popularity. Upon meeting him, one really could not notice anything particularly remarkable about him.

One day, I picked up a newspaper only to find a picture of this young rabbi sitting and chatting with President Ronald Reagan in the Oval Office, accompanied by a write-up about how he was sharing the message of Chanukah with the president. The story was carried nationally. That was enough for me. I had to find out how this young “shnook” was doing it. I asked him how he managed to accomplish all of these wonderful things.

No Regrets

unnamed

Karl Pillemer, a professor at Cornell University, interviewed more than a thousand older Americans from different economic, educational, and occupational backgrounds and asked them to share the most valuable lessons they’d learned.

Overwhelmingly, the focus wasn’t on what they did, but what they didn’t do.

Of a thousand people in the later stages of life, what dominated their advice on the lessons of life was regret.

One man in his late eighties was asked:
“If you could come back and live the life of anyone, who would you want to come back as?”

His answer: Continue reading
