    Your message tonight brought awareness to me in how meticulous the Torah is in distinguishing different spiritual and emotional experiences. The Torah didn’t just roll the salvation into one expression. It taught me a lesson that to have real gratefulness and appreciation it has to start with living in awareness and being present to the subtlety of different experiences.

    Only then will I be able to appreciate and distinguish all the amazing chasodim that surround me day in and day out nonstop.

    That awareness might allow me to have a new perspective and begin to understand God’s love language and notice how it’s  being continuously expressed in my everyday and my every moment of life.

    That realization might perhaps open us up to a deeper and more meaningful  relationship with God.

    A relationship of love, connection and appreciation with a Father that loves us in an eternal and  unconditional love.
    Thank you so much.

    Why is our gratitutude greater for nisim over niflaos and why niflaos over teshuos? (Interstingly in Modim we also say nisim then niflaos and the tovos which could correspond to the same order of gratitude. An aside what is the niflaos that happen every second?)

      Alter Rebbe says in Tanya that entire physical universe is created every moment ex-nihilo (much like a movie on a screen needs the projector every moment to continue on)

      That are the niflaos we thank for, every second.

    A small correciton: The order of the text I discussed in in the Sidur of the Shalah, the Sidur of Reb Yaakov Emdin, the Sidur of the Baal HaTanya. The order in Tur Hilchos Chanukah is like in Mesechte Sofrim ch. 20.
