    After listening to the incredible classes on this maamer, I am wondering to myself…what would the state of our children’s health (on all levels) look like if they were fed a steady preventative diet of this wisdom and truth. Not only once challenged, but from a very young age, at home and in the classroom. How much pain and confusion could be avoided or at least mitigated?
    To me, this maamer plants the seeds for a kind of unparalleled spiritual intelligence.
    Imagine, if we served this up as a preamble, as a premise and paradigm - for all things to come… 
    I think more destructive than actual struggle (which unfortunately mostly cannot be avoided) is the confusion, the loneliness, the self-condemnation… Our kids deserve to hear this from every adult in their life - until it's coming out of their ears…

    As a society we’ve become excellent at giving our kids the best. The best opportunities, all the tools, all the skills. Why not the best spiritual tools - deep insight into their inner world, to a G-dly reality? 
    Why wait until they’ve already experienced pain or confusion to give them this life-giving information? Why wait until we have a lot to undo?
    Am I being naive? 
    Maybe I haven’t experienced enough of life to be saying this, but I feel like we are sitting on a treasure and we’re not sharing enough of it’s language with our kids.
    Is it wrong to wonder why these ideas aren’t incorporated into the curriculums of our schools? 
    It’s great to be able to read and translate a Rashi Sicha independently, but if you have little appreciation for what you’re reading or it remains an academic exercise - its a lost opportunity at best. 
    Why are so many of us or our children reaching adulthood without any inkling of the profound and vast therapeutic gifts contained in Chassidus? 
    How many children condemn themselves for their struggles without any sense of just how normal they are?
    I say perhaps I am naive because maybe I have yet to learn, that so goes the journey of life, to be handed treasures and not know what you are holding… or perhaps, we just haven’t yet found a way or the right language to bequeath to our children what is rightfully theirs… 
    I really don’t know… but I hope the second is true.

    This is the battle of the worlds too ...will we fulfill our desires of the flesh or maintain our fleshly desires to the good of all!

    Two people can use the same technique but get different results, and they blame the patient.  Put the patient with the successful person and they fly.  Kosher is kosher!

    If you are an abuse victim, it could be to their benefit to fix, force their agenda on you...it deflects.  Scripture is truly all you will be able to fully trust, other than G-d.

    Hear Reb YY, you have to listen to G-d!  It has to be a kosher way of healing to heal!  That mixed with the ways of hell will destroy!
