Today we learn the Fourth Principle of Emuna, all about the eternality and infinitude of Hashem. Awareness of this principle saves a person tons of anxiety in life, as we're about to see...
The third Principle of Emuna, that Hashem has no physical attributes nor can a finite being comprehend Him, is one of the most difficult to learn and internalize. Today's lesson shows that four hurdles stand in our way; these four hurdles are also the key to our personal and national challenges since the beginning of time.
Today we learn the 2nd of the 13 Principles of Emuna, Divine Unity. This principle is not only the core of our belief system, but the key to inner peace, no matter what turbulence surrounds us.
Principle 1: I believe with complete belief that the Creator, blessed be His Name, is Creator and Director of all the creations, and He alone did, does and will do every deed.
This is the belief in the existence of the Creator and that He is the life force behind all of creation; nothing can exist without His will, from the mega-galaxies to the tiniest electron. The Creator makes everything happen and nothing can happen or exist against His will or without Him.
We're delighted to share the replay of the Emuna Hour with Rabbi Lazer Brody this past Wednesday, 4 Nov., 2020. It's called "The Search for Truth," a guide to finding joy and purpose in life.
First, we'll review basic spiritual anatomy and the two different flows of influence from top to bottom and bottom to top, and then we continue to learn about the anatomy of free choice.
This is our debut of Emuna Hour, our new weekly shiur on Zoom that helps us learn and internalize the principles of emuna. The mp3 is unedited, so you can hear how Nazis and hate-spammers tried to crash the shiur between minutes 17:00 and 18:30.
