Daily Lift #489

Fulfill the Will of the Creator

When someone's total focus is on fulfilling the will of the Creator, he will be free from all worries and anxieties. He constantly fulfills the will of the Creator with sublime ecstasy and joy. A wise person makes this his life-goal.

This is such a powerful message that it is worth rereading over and over again. Integrating this into our consciousness is life-transforming. Print this out and put it in a place where you will remember to read it daily for at least one week.

(see Rabbi Simcha Zissel Ziv - Chochmah Umussar, vol.1, 287-8)

Fulfilling the Will of Our Creator

If one has yet to understand their purpose how do they know what the Will of the Creator is? and How do we know if we are then fulfilling G d's Will or just fulfilling our own will?

Wisdom is highly valued in Jewish culture. The rest of the world would do well to consider Wisdom as an important element in their daily lives.
