Studying Sha’ar HaBitachon, Rabbeinu Bachaya’s “Gate of Trust”~ the Timeless Torah Book that can teach you to How to Live with Certainty and Discover Tranquility!
Episode #6 “SEA OF TRANQUILITY” Before teaching us how Bitachon or “True Trust” can be achieved, the case continues to be made for it. Rabbeinu Bachaya makes a bold claim: Nurturing Trust will necessarily lead to Peace of Mind, allowing us to fully devote our energies to Prayer, Torah study and other forms of meaningful Spiritual Pursuit.
Ok. Sounds nice, but seriously, is that real?! So many people wish they could feel secure about the future, and live with no anxiety — yet the cold hard fact that the future is ever unpredictable worrys them. The uncertainty of tomorrow is reality, and as such, practically speaking, how can our anxieties be ever truly be transcended?
Is Living in a Delusion or creating of an unrealistic Illusion a souce of comfort? Can choosing to “Live Trustfully” — assuming that’s even possible — actually enable us to experience inner tranquility and provide the Certainty and Security we all so desperately crave!
Finally, lets find clarity on why the author chose to make the case for Bitachon’s importance by emphasizing its many benefits rather than its obligatory status in Judaism?
