Parshat Vayishlach: The Secret of Shechem
Ascent From the Depths

A nation of miracles

Miracles "For the people of Israel, miracles are the way of nature, for the people of Israel are above nature." Rebbe Nachman of Breslev

Don't be upset with the nations of the world because they don't understand us; they're not capable of understanding us.

Many of our own brothers and sisters don't know what it means to be a Jew, so what can we possibly expect from our neighbors? One of life's biggest tragedies is when the King's own son and daughter don't know who their father is.

Our Father in Heaven can do whatever He wants, whenever He wants. Nature is nothing more than a tool in His hands. Whenever He so desires, He overrides nature. We call that miracles, but for Hashem, it's business as usual.

How can we invoke miracles?

My beloved teacher and spiritual guide Rabbi Shalom Arush says that if you haven't yet seen a miracle today, it's because you haven't said thank-you to Hashem today. So what are you waiting for?

Baruch HaShem!

I wake up every morning and come to your site to get myself mentally prepared for another day of walking with HaShem. May He continue to bless your endeavors abundantly! Consider this a big giant embrace through the Interwebs!
