Serve your family, your neighbor, your
brethren,your nation, the stranger in your land and above all serve G-d!
He will reveal your hidden talents in
the many ways that you serve Him and
others. He has given you these "hidden"
talents, but you must develope them as
you serve. Get started!

To, Walter Brown and the rest out there!
There's no such thing as 'missed' G-D's calling forever, as long as you're alive, there's always hope. In Judaism we believe that our chance isn't over until we are. Look out for some ways you can hear and follow G-D's messages now and it will surely enhance your life. There are many ways you can acquire and learn more about what G-D's telling us. You can check it online by many very wonderful sites as this, or something like Hineni, Gateways and more. A good suggestion is to read books that will show you as how to go about growing at every possible opportunity. So go for it, no if, buts, and when's, life goes too fast for that. We're all able to do it, sometime, somehow, just look out for the tools available out there to help you reach your goals.
And while you're at it, don't forget to smile, cause even if you feel no reason to smile, if you do, G-D will give you every reason to!!
Good luck and best of wishes!!

Our Gifts, Our Desire, Our Vision
In each of us, no matter what walks of life we are in, I trully believe we have gifts given to us by G-d. The blueprint of what each of us were created for. The problem is, we may know the desire we have, but we can't envision us actually living it out. This can breed alot of frustration and leave us feeling quite unfulfilled in life. This movie depicts that, we need to just GO FOR IT !!! If we have a desire to paint a picture, buy paint and go for it. It doesn't really matter if you are a Rembrant or not, it matters that you did it. It was your creation, your vision, thus leading to a fulfillment you made of the desire to paint. Judaism teaches that man is co-creators with G-d.There may be alot of genious's out there waiting to make their debut. If you feel like it failed at first, don't give up!!! Ask Thomas Edison, he could tell you, failure only illuminates to further correct knowledge.(no pun intended)

True strength comes from wanting the best for other,
When one is young it's mostly all about themselves and how they can conquer the world. but, as one matures and gains responsiblity they should work on conquering their fears, their inner demons of selfishness as they work to make the world better for those they love. Wanting the best for others will drive a person to realize that with GOD they can defeat the giants in their live. As one grows in strength GOD reminds them daily that middle age and old age are only devilish words from satan himself meant to hold you back with a defeatist attitude.

To Yaacov Then it is up to us to fight back [figuratively speaking!], that's the way G-d wants us to develop our spiritual muscles here, it's a tightrope walk to be sure but it's worth it in the end ..

Sometimes we do access our "hidden talents" but there are other people around that because they feel threaten or simply jalous we are not allowed to bring out those "hidden talents" and every body around suffers

you have to search for your hidden talents and see if you could find them, because everyone has them hidden somewhere deep inside.
