Sometimes it's hidden from us

Sometimes it's hidden from us (most of the times I should say), but it's more in the believe.

What if it could and we could make it so?

The attitude of "Gam Ze L'Tova" is somewhat different from that of "couldn't be better." The first reacts favorably to events which are not obviously favorable and saves one from much needless suffering. The second, however, could blind us to the fact that we can improve our lives in many ways if we think about it. The "couldn't be better" attitude expresses resignation but not hope. The "gam ze l'tova" includes hope. A more inclusive attitude could say: this is good, but how can I make it even better? That's also something to think about.

"Gam zu l'tova."

Excellent treatment of a topic that is often quite difficult for two discouraging reasons; firstly , the concern for insincerity (dishonesty) and secondly, to our natural rationale, it seems illogical and goes against the very grain of our unadjusted human nature, both of which Rabbi Salomon covered comprehensively in the video. Memorable to say the least. Edifying. "It's all for the best."
