    Getting passed the Corona virus

    Dear Rabbi YY,

    As always your shiurim are extremely enlightening, inspiring and motivating. My family has seven members with the virus and Baruch Hashem with chasdei shamayim, some rest, tea and good old chicken soup we are all doing better. Just a technical note from a viewers standpoint.  The position of the video camera of this particular shiur was not positioned as well as it was in the past shiurim. In addition, I wanted to let you know that viewing these classes were vital for my mother's sanity living alone in quarantine this past week. 

    Thank you very much!

    What was read at the end of the shiur reminds me of the story with the brisker rav that he would go to galitzia for his health and there was alot of chadisha yiden there. He once heard them degrading the litvacks that they put on tefilin when they are half a sleep etc. - however , the chasidim they do hachanos and then go to the mikvah and only then they daven.

    The brisker rav responded 'ya ya we put on tefilin while our eyes are still closed because we want the hispalus and the hislavos only to come from the mitzvah itself. If the hispaulus is coming outside the etzem even on very high levels it is still lacking. The hispaulus needs to come from the mitzvah and the words of tefilah themselves when one is mevatel to yechudo and then the mitzvah can change the mentch.

    I guess the Rebee would call the Brisker Rav a true chasid!

    Hope it is only a technical issue!

    Real change comes from a deep place of intellect not emotion

    Emotions are  fleeting  even the highest most exquisite emotions. They can pass like the clouds in  the  sky. They can change you, but only temporarily.  

    Intellectual realization of a item, once absorbed by a person of integrity and honesty, especially honesty with one's self, can effect permanent change.  

    That's why a not yet frum yid can be affected by an emotional religious experience  and feel good about it, but it cannot last unless and  until there is an intellectual realization that its actually true.
