Studying Sha’ar HaBitachon, Rabbeinu Bachaya’s “Gate of Trust” ~ the Timeless Torah Tome that can teach US ALL How to Conquer Anxiety and Live with Tranquility!
In past few Episodes, we’ve been focused on the Biblical Blackout on “What to Expect in Heaven.” Our fiftieth consecutive segment of chapter four presents a third reason.
Entitled “CHILDREN OF HEAVEN,” Bitachon Preamble V introduces a novel way to view the surprising Scriptural Silence on Paradise and the proverbial World to Come!
To explain the anomaly of our faith’s foundational texts studiously ignoring Heavenly Rewards and the [Spiritual] Delights of the Afterlife — Rabbainu Bachaya presents a perspective that is at once profoundly insightful, yet surprisingly pragmatic.
Far more than a sensible cause for the scriptural silence on Olam Haba, it conveys a highly effective Torah strategy to successfully educate, influence and inspire change!
Although, as previously, we won’t directly address the subject of Bitachon, the content and concepts touched upon are fascinating, enlightening and even uplifting!
Upon full clarification of this important issue, we will eventually return the original subject: applying Trust to this specific dimension of Yiddishkeits life and values.
The fiftieth study segment of the Fourth Chapter of “Shaar HaBitachon” comprises the 123rd consecutive video about learning how to Build Trust in G-d to Conquer Anxiety. Forever!
