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-Six: “HUNTING INSTINCT”
Since we are mandated by Hashem to make sincere efforts to seek out a livelihood and support our loved ones, it’s only logical to assume that there is clear Torah instructions about how to do so. Yet, until this book was written no such source existed!
Rabbeinu Bachaya provides us unprecedented insight and clarity on this important life-question: In the previous Episode, we’ve discovered a lucid and trustworthy faith-infused strategy to guide us in our quest of a worthy occupation. In this Episode we will continue to develop the thesis and sharpen the Bitachon perspective on employment.
The author now draws a fascinating parallel between the Hunting Instincts of various animal’s that enable success in obtaining their sustenance. Should we be relying on our own instincts to sniff out the best way to turn a profit as well, or is it wiser to leave instinctive hunting prowess to Creatures in the Jungle, and choose to make careful and calculated decisions instead?
Here we will discover what we should and should not be learning from the animal kingdom to achieve a livelihood, by best positioning ourselves to become recipients of G-d’s magnanimous blessings.
Part Twenty-Six of the chapter is the 72nd consecutive video of this ongoing series.
