Staying Focused in Prayer

Prayer has tremendous potential for spiritual elevation and intense pleasure. How tragic that such a great opportunity is sometimes regarded as a boring chore!

On one extreme, some people think that the object of prayer is to just rattle off words. On the other extreme, some people try so hard to pray properly that they become very tense and nervous.

The way to have an elevating prayer experience is to calmly recite the words, while keeping in mind that you are speaking to the Omniscient Creator of the Universe. Whenever an external thought comes into your mind, gently return your focus to what you were saying in your prayers. You need not fight other thoughts - just ignore them, and once again concentrate on the words of the prayers you are reciting. If the thoughts that come up concern a practical problem that must be dealt with, set a time later in the day when you will address that matter.

Last week I took a One Israel fund trip to the Gush Etzion, just south of Jerusaelm
Here is the second part to the trip to the Herod castle just south of Jerusalem where Herod may be buried as well.

Eight pictures to make you think... and Churchill foresaw it! and Jeep riding in the Gush


Accept Other People's Differences

Accept the fact that no other person is exactly like you. This will save you from many problems in interpersonal relationships.

When the Torah commands us to "love your neighbor as yourself," that obviously means we should have unconditional love for those who are different from us.

Love Yehuda Lave




An anecdote about a rabbi who was normally very well disposed to children but who got very angry when he saw a group of children from his congregation writing their names in wet cement. A female member of the congregation, shocked at his outburst, reminded him that he had always been so fond of children and said she simply could not understand the change in his attitude. To which he replied: "I like children in the abstract but not in the concrete." Told to me by Rabbi Kaplan of the Chabad Synagogue of Flamingo in Detroit.

...And some people still do not see a reason to worry!
Winston Churchill 1899. "Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world."===============================================================================================
This is amazing. Even more amazing is that this hasn't been published long before now.
CHURCHILL ON ISLAM Unbelievable, but the speech below was written in 1899.
(Check Wikipedia - The River War). The attached short speech from Winston Churchill, was delivered
by him in 1899 when he was a young soldier and journalist. It probably sets out the current views of many,
but expresses in the wonderful Churchillian turn of phrase and use of the English language,
of which he was a past master. Sir Winston Churchill was, without doubt, one of the greatest men of the late
19th and 20th centuries. He was a brave young soldier, a brilliant journalist, an extraordinary politician and
statesman, a great war leader and British Prime Minister, to whom the Western world must be forever in his debt.
He was a prophet in his own time. He died on 24th January 1965, at the grand old age of 90 and,
after a lifetime of service to his country, was accorded a State funeral. HERE IS THE SPEECH:
"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy,
which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy.
The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture,
sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the
Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement,
the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to
some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction
of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Muslims may
show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it.
No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant
and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step;
and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had
vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome."
Sir Winston Churchill; (Source: The River War, first edition, Vol II, pages 248-250 London).
Churchill saw it coming.

 
AND WHO TOOK THE BUST OF CHURCHILL OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE????
