David

Rabbi Brody
You probably do not remember me (I attend all your lectures when you are in Miami) but I once emailed you for a blessing as I had a client that manufactures cigarettes and I had two executed contracts for the sale of 4 containers per month to be shipped out of the Port of Miami. You responded that you could not bless this transaction as cigarettes are unhealthy etc. One of the contracts was for the Ukraine the other was for Mexico. Just as the cargo was being loaded to be shipped to the Ukraine the war between Russia and the Ukraine started and the contract was cancelled. On the contract for Mexico the containers were loaded and ready for shipping when the buyer (a sole proprietor) apparently smoked too many cigarettes and passed away. Contract cancelled. Your blessings or in this case non blessings are very powerful. As such, when you ask for modesty, which includes mental and physical aspects, in order for Hashem to protect Israel, I shall do this. So I keep my eyes lowered when taking the metro to work. I bring the Garden of Emuna with me everywhere I go so can keep the mind from wandering. And I am working on doing 5 of those perfect push-ups. It's not much but it's all I can think of doing to remain modest in the terms of your article. If you have any other suggestions on how remain in this mode I would be very happy to also do this.
Thanks

Lazer Brody

Sure, I remember you, David! I pray for your success and parnassa and am waiting to hear good news from you. Every blessing, LB
