There is nothing greater in the world that can give a person serenity and tranquility than awareness of the Almighty and trust in Him. This awareness is the tried and true method to alleviate all of a person's emotional pain. It will calm the spirits of the brokenhearted. This is the best path to tranquility in the world.
Today, when someone happens to throw you off balance, stop and ask yourself: "What is God trying to tell me?"
(see Rabbi Chaim Zaitchyk - Maayanai Hachaim, vol.3, p.175; Rabbi
Pliskin's "Consulting the Wise")
We're human. We need food. We need meaning and connection. And we most definitely need encouragement.
Now, in this wise and charming new volume, we learn how to effectively use the massive power of encouragement,
to encourage ourselves and others, particularly when we feel overwhelmed or depleted.
In Encouragement, Rabbi Pliskin shares meditations and affirmations, inspirational true stories, and his trademark
wise, practical advice. He shows us how our words can help others - and ourselves -- become more confident,
optimistic, and upbeat people.
Rabbi Zelig Pliskin is the author of 25 books with his specialty in mastering happiness and other positive inner resources.
