Eminem's 'Relapse'...

beats are catchy and makes you wanna shake your booty! The words are a plethora
of poetic-diarrhea filled with selfish, diabolical, violent serial killer,offering nothing but self-distractive dead-end solutions to a world seemed devoid of values!

Eminem's come-back 'Insane' is just that, a clear depiction of a'sick-America'and paying the price!
Eminem's constantly fighting addiction 'swallowing a Klonopin while nodding in and out!' He's out of whack and he blames his momma: 'Valium was in everything: food that I ate,The water that I drank, fucking peas on my plate," and his sick behavior is her doing!
There is nothing new here it is Eminem all over again whinning once more, irresponsible, blaming everything on his momma for growing up in a cruel cruel Detroit. Yes, he might be the new
Elvis but i wish the message was positive and uplifting rather then dark and depressing cause after all, lots of people listen to the kid!!!

Urgent Yearning

By Tzvi Freeman

At the base of our Torah and our Jewish psyche lies an incessant urgency. Not just a sense that things are not the way they should be, but a relentless yearning that things should heal this very moment. Relentless, because it refuses to decay with time or to fade with disappointment. In the morning, we make our plea as though unable to tolerate another moment. And as evening comes, we demand again as though morning never passed.

We live on the verge of eternity. May we arrive now.

By Tzvi Freeman

Torah is the interface between the Infinite and creation. On the outside, it speaks the language of humankind. On the inside is depth without end.

Grasp either end and you have nothing. Grasp both and you have G-d Himself.

Talking to Himself

By Tzvi Freeman

He talks with Himself, entertained by His own thoughts. The thoughts imply a background, which is the world. But the Torah, those are the thoughts themselves.

And we? Our souls are the self with whom He speaks.

Playing With Our Minds

By Tzvi Freeman

If He had made the world a complete and utter mystery, we would have no path to know Him. And if all would fit together like a neat and tidy grandfather clock, we would not know that there is anything more to know.

So He took His raw, unknowable Will and cloaked it in wisdom, from which He formed a world. We approach the wisdom only to find ourselves swimming in an unfathomable ocean of wonders.

Now it is within the mind's grasp to know that no thought can grasp Him.

The Process
By Tzvi Freeman

Torah is not about getting to the truth. When you are immersed in Torah, even while pondering the question, even while struggling to make sense of it all, you are at truth already.

Torah is about being truth.

The Unnatural Nature of Things

By Tzvi Freeman

He could have made a world where the nature of each thing may be deduced from its parts. A predictable, orderly world. A world void of wonder. And then we would say, "Things are this way because they must be this way." G-d would be a stranger in His own world.

Instead, at each step another surprise greets us, a new way of being emerges unexpected from everything we knew before. Until we must conclude that things are the way they are for no particular reason -- other than His desire that they be that way.

He has made a world that has room for Him, because its nature is wondrous.

Spiritual Disdain

By Tzvi Freeman

As spiritual beings in a material world, we engage it in a posture of descent, in compromise, with a lessening of light. That is why spiritual people disdain all interaction with this world, and strive to minimize it at all costs.

Yet the Torah provides an interface with the world that is more G-dly than the soul itself. How does it accomplish this? By unlocking the spark of G-d within each thing.

Give me strength! Give me music! G-d give me strength!!!!
There are some powerful positive forces in the universe
where one can draw power from and Chopin's music is definitely one!!!

What a beautiful day!

The sidewalks are so clean!
The cobblestones await and anticipate each step

What a pleasure!

Enjoy your day!!!

Infinite & Intimate

By Tzvi Freeman

Does G-d then laugh? Is He so vulnerable as to cry over failure and rejoice in success? Does He that brings heaven and earth into existence truly love with the passion of a frail human being? Can the Infinite Light feel regret, just as a creature trapped within the tunnel of time?

But G-d desired Man with all his struggles. The proof: We are here. And G-d looked down from His lofty realm beyond love and laughter and passion and remorse, down into this thought of a human being, and He said, "Shall he then be alone in his place and I in mine? Is this oneness?"

So He arranged a meeting place, in the boundless emotions that are the fabric of Man's soul and are reflected within the bowels of the Infinite Light. So that in love and laughter and compassion and awe and beauty, Man and G-d could find one another, and neither would be alone.

Unimaginable Journeys

By Tzvi Freeman

Each journey the soul travels takes her higher.

There are journeys that are painful, because there is struggle. Struggle to wrestle out of one place to reach another, struggle to discern the good from the bad and put each in place, struggle to face ugliness and replace it with beauty. But in each of these, a sense of purpose overwhelms the pain and brings its own joy.

Then there are journeys that seem to have no purpose. Where nothing appears to be accomplished, all seems futile. There is no medicine to wash away the pain.

But every journey the soul travels takes her higher. It is only that in some, the destination is a place so distant, so lofty, she could never have imagined. Until she arrives.

By Tzvi Freeman

When Man desired to fly, two paths lay before him: To create vehicles lighter than air, or to use the air's resistance to his advantage. In the end, the second path proved more successful.

It turns out that when you wish to fly above, resistance is to your advantage. In fact, it carries you higher than the angels.

Maturity of the Soul

By Tzvi Freeman

The ultimate elevation of the soul is to find it has purpose. To discover that it is not here simply to be, but to accomplish, to heal, to make better. In that moment of discovery, the soul graduates from being G‑d's little child to become His representative.

Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

To be envious of someone is a negative commandment. In fact, it is one of the
ten original sins and one which we should guard ourselves from falling into and veer
away from b/c it can have a spiral of negative affects. That and greed can probably shake hands.
Yes, it is true if you look at your material life you most likely have everything you

However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

Earth is only traveling through our solar system at 178.000km per hour!
If it were to deviate or slow down by one kilometer we'd all fly off into space: G-d Forbid! But just as earth is moving forward, hence constantly changing, so
do our situation good or bad! Good Shabbos!!!!!!!!

Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

Every individual is given just enough according to what they can handle.
It's like a serum to the wound. It's a give and take. Some people compare
their lives to others but we cannot because you do not know what it is like
to walk in anothers' shoes! The journey must be enjoyed and as you clear the rocks
from under your feet in order to walk forward, do it all with a smile!!!

My guitar is in the shop today for minor repair; Spring cleaning!
My left hand is a little sprained from smacking the badmington birdy a little
too hard..hehe!

No Need for a Middleman!!!

By Tzvi Freeman

He doesn't need you to report on the dirt in His world. He is quite aware of its existence, He put it there and doesn't really care to hear about it.

He sent you here to search out the jewels hidden in the mud, clean them and polish them until they shine. And when you bring them to Him, the angels make a crown of them for Him, saying, "Look what Your children have made for You out of the mud!"
