Studying Sha’ar HaBitachon, Rabbeinu Bachaya’s “Gate of Trust” ~ the Timeless Torah Book that can teach US ALL to How to Live with Certainty and Discover Tranquility!
Chapter Three, Part Twenty-Five: “CAREER OPPORTUNITIES”
After addressing various theological conundrums, Rabbainu Bachaya now returns to the original thrust of his thesis; our moral mandate to invest the time and effort required to earn an honest living.
He forcefully argues that one cannot, in good faith, rely on miracles or expect others to support him, as he chooses to focus personal spiritual pursuit. Yet, despite the requirement to make our best effort — we must constantly remember that Hashem is our sole provider. Our efforts simply comprise the “vessel” for His bounty.
The question, then is, how do we find the appropriate career to serve as that vessel? Responding to this very query, the author presents us with a trustworthy Bitachon-oriented strategy to help us best choose the worthiest occupation.
The lucid Torah perspective of this venerated medieval Spiritual Master comprise a marvelous synergy of pure faith and pragmatism that are entirely compatible.
Here we will learn to cultivate the proper Bitachon attitude towards achieving a livelihood, a mindset that will best position us to best achieve that objective.
Remarkably, this thousand-year-old manuscript resonates with the relevancy of computer science and can guide us today in successfully finding the most effective Career Path and achieve the inner tranquility available only with true Trust in Hashem!
Part Twenty-Five of the chapter is the 71st consecutive video of this ongoing series.
