    Sacrifice or investment?

    Yasher Koi'ach! A wonderful shiur as usual.

    A number of points:

    • A korbon Todoh also includes 10 loaves of chometz.
    • I don't really see that this is what the letter writer was talkig about. I felt that the answer was simple. If going after your desire solves the issue that brought about the desire, then it is healthy. If it doesn't ultimately solve the issue, then it is no more than a distraction.
      For example: You desire a wife. If your desire is based on the inner feeling that you want to give and create a loving relationship, then finding a wife and getting married will solve the issue that brought about the desire. But if you drink so that you don't feel the pain of not having a wife, then you are involved in an unhealthy addiction. 
      It is not always easy to identify the root of the desire, but if you can, this could be an easy way to determine if you should indulge a desire or run from it.
      Either way, I think it is important to feel the inner desire and not repress the feeling - even if it is unhealthy. In that case, one must work on the issue to uproot the feeling.
    • I think that the concept of investment vs. sacrifice is really important. Investment is generally positive. Sacrifice is much more rarely positive.
