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-Eight: “THE RELIANT”
Having sketched the parameters of the correct Mindset and Attitude we must develop regarding the appropriate efforts made towards obtaining our livelihoods, we now illustrate how it those very endeavours can and should be an embodiment of our rock solid Bitachon, Torah -True Trust.
With remarkable clarity, Rabbeinu Bachaya will demonstrate how doing “Our Part” not only doesn’t infringe on the imperative for us to Rely (totally and unequivocally) on G-d, but rather flows as a tributary of it!
Despite it being somewhat counterintuitive, our investiture of wherewithal in pursuit of our livelihoods, doesn’t have to indicate a lack of faith. In fact, as already richly documented – by adopting the correct mindset – it’s quite to the contrary.
Conversely, self-reliant belief in your own Ability and Efforts will get in the way of your Soul’s Faithfull Aspirations! Ultimately, this misguided approach might even impede or close doors to the success you seek.
In elevating our perspective, we are enabled to nurture our inner spiritual reservoir of Emunah, notwithstanding the “real-world” efforts and activities we undertake.
Part Twenty-Eight is the final Episode of this Chapter. It comprises the 74th consecutive video of this ongoing series. This class has been generously sponsored by Ami Maishlish to honour the memory of his dear departed wife, Dalia (D’lal) bat Moshe.
