Video Reponse to Comments

by Reb Nati at Mystical Paths

Tell us if you like the new format


  1. Thank you Reb Nati!
    Enjoyed listening to what you had to say.
    I will do my best.. .you are so right, we are so close, if i look from my perspective seeing young Jewish adults, and how have started to search for connection back with Hashem - we have seen in the world all that is "sold" to us and how it only leaves a taste for wanting more and chasing and chasing and never getting there, to realise that it is with Hashem that TRUE connection and happiness is from... we are so close..
    Thank you for your video post and to all the team for the wonderful work and posts here!
    Kol hakavod!
    (PS - this coming from a kid who didn't attended public school (not Jewish school), learnt Barmitzvah portion by heart because couldnt read Hebrew, but having seen "light" I am so thankful for everyday as you say, two arms, two legs Baruch Hashem.. I am still on the "beginners" road, but the happiness I feel KNOWING Hashem is with us.. well, words can't describe :) )

  2. apologies, typo correction:
    didn't attended public school -->
    did attended public school

  3. Thank you Reb Nati. Your earnestness comes shining thru, a genuine caring for the other person.

    You video is a nice addition to Mystical Paths and its aim of sharing and educating.

  4. Am I the only one who had technical problems with the video? The words did not synchronize with the mouth, so I found it frustrating to watch. I tried listening w/o watching, but the sound was very low. I'll try again later on.

  5. Emes, i too heard the words out of sync with the video - it started to as frustrating, but then i put it down to the message being really important if i was being distracted and trying to be "pulled away" from listening to the message - also when i saw the time, like 15mins, i thought gee, do i really have 15 minutes to listen to something to see if its worthwhile .. again, all the "distractions" that wanted me not to watch/listen - and i can say from having done so and hearing the message know why was "tempting" to be distracted not to have :)
    Kol hakavod!

  6. prefer the written word.. easier to concentrate

  7. In his book, "Zeide Reb Motele: The Life of the Tzaddik Reb Mordechai Dov of Hornosteipel," Rabbi Dr. Abraham J. Twerski writes the following on the teachings of R' Nochum of Czernoble (p. 148):

    "When Mashiach comes (speedily in our time), there will be constant unity and perfection. This unity is the secret of the construct of the stature of Mashiach. The Baal Shem Tov said that every single Jew must prepare and rectify that portion of the structure of Mashiach that pertains to his neshamah. As is known, 'Adam' is the mnemonic for 'Adam, David, Mashiach.' The stature of Adam was from one end of the world to the other, i.e., it included the neshamos of all Israel. After Adam sinned, his structure lessened. However, Mashiach will rectify his sin and there will be a complete structure of all the neshamos of Israel, as it was before Adam's sin. Therefore, every single Jew must prepare his portion of Mashiach (Meor Eynaim, Pinchas)."

    How does one prepare his portion of the structure - dare one say, guph? - of Mashiach? Isn't it as Rabbi Nati says...? By avoiding avodah zarah and via teshuvah, emunah, etc., etc., etc.

    Personally? I wouldn't know. I'm the odd goy out and can only parrot what I'm told by my Jewish teachers.

  8. Video was ok, as it is nice to see a face as opposed to typing. Choppy etc, but good at anyrate.

    We need to initiate it. sigh
