Here is a fundamental principle of metaphysics: When you act in a positive manner that goes against an innate negative tendency, then you receive a great light. Each person on his own level can personally experience this. When you overcome even a minor temptation, you experience unlimited joy. And the greater the temptation, the greater the ecstasy of overcoming it!
The next time you overcome a temptation, visualize a great light permeating your entire being.
(see Rabbi Yeruchem Levovitz - Daas Chochmah Umussar,
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.
His last 15 books include such titles as: "Taking Action", "Happiness", "Kindness", "Courage", "Serenity", "Building Your Self-image" "Conversations with
Yourself" and "Marriage." These books are available at: Artscroll.com.
