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 Part One of “CHILDREN OF HEAVEN,” we were introduced to a novel way to view the surprising Scriptural Silence on Paradise and the proverbial World to Come!
Part Two of the same title comprises the fifty-first consecutive segment of chapter four. Inasmuch as it features the continuation of the third reason, it takes its place in the series as Bitachon Preamble VI.
To explain the silence on Heavenly Rewards — Rabbainu Bachaya presented a fascinating supposition that suggested G-d had no choice to the feeblemindedness of the newly birthed nation of erstwhile slaves.
Yet while the perspective was certainly creative, and thought provoking, this explanation on the Biblical Blackout on Heaven left us hungry and wanting.
Were our early ancestors really such fools, or is the scriptural silence on Olam Haba subtly conveying a critically important message?
Imagine if this seeming omission is an inclusion of the most powerful teaching on how to effectively educate, influence, and inspire future generations!
That is to say; not only insightful, but also highly relevant and pragmatic!
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 fifty-first study segment of the Fourth Chapter of “Shaar HaBitachon” comprises the 124th consecutive video about learning how to Build Trust in G-d to Conquer Anxiety. Forever!
