Attaining humility is a byproduct of our awareness of the awesome power of our immortal Creator. We are finite in the presence of the Infinite. We are extremely limited when compared to the One who is unlimited. We are miniscule when compared to the immense size of His total creation of which we are aware of only a tiny fraction. And what we are aware of is mind-boggling in its complexity, grandeur, and size.
Humility is what any intelligent, thinking human will have to experience with even a partial awareness of what has already been revealed to us.
(from Rabbi Pliskin's book "Patience," published by ArtScroll - www.artscroll.com)
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.
