ELIANA BENADOR: THE HEBREW WORD “HAMAS” MEANS “VIOLENCE, OPRESS, TO DO WRONG”

Posted By on October 25, 2014

B”H

 

Did you know that the Hebrew word Hamas, made out of chet, mem, samech, means “violence, to oppress, and to do wrong?”

As a matter of fact, in our Holy Torah, the word Hamas is used to describe “violence” against the Jewish people (children of Judah) within the covenant land, as it says: 

“Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the Hamas against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land.” – Yoel 4:19 

“And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children’s children for ever: and my servant David shall be their King for ever. Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And the heathen shall know that I, HaShem, do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.” – Yechezkel 37:25-28

ISRAEL’S INSIGHTEC: SPEAKING OF JEWISH GENIUS

Posted By on October 19, 2014

Israel’s InSightec is  metamorphosing the operating room with a new ultrasound technology that enables surgeons to destroy tumors and cysts without incisions.

No science fiction anymore now that surgery Israeli-version is being performed without scalpels and scars, as JewsNews reports.

Indeed, Israel’s InSightec is in the midst of transforming the operating room with its ExAblate MRI-guided high-intensity ultrasound technology.  Simply amazing!!!

The ExAblate O.R. system uses interchangeable “cradles” set on a regular MRI treatment table. The tool allows doctors to destroy targets, such as tumors and uterine fibroid cysts, deep inside the body without incisions. The alert patient is monitored in real time, and changes in treatment parameters can be made instantly.

While the ExAblate system garners kudos – The Wall Street Journal’s Technology Innovation Award, the European Union’s Information Society Technologies grand prize, TIME magazine’s list of 50 best inventions of 2011 – InSightec has been gaining regulatory approvals, moving ahead with clinical trials and closing a $30.9 million financing round.

Gynecology and oncology uses

ExAblate O.R. is already being used in several countries, including Europe and the United States, to treat uterine fibroids and pain caused by bone cancer.

“We started with uterine fibroids, which afflict a quarter of all women sometime in their lives and usually are treated with a hysterectomy,” says InSightec president and founder Kobi Vortman. “We believe for patients looking for alternative treatment to preserve the uterus, this is effective and safe.”

More than 9,000 patients in the United States, Europe and Asia have been able to avoid surgery as the Israeli technology has successfully destroyed fibroids through ultrasound.

A two-venue study begun in January at the Mayo Clinic and at Duke University is determining how ExAblate compares with the usual treatment for fibroids, the invasive uterine artery embolization. Meant to gather data for medical insurance reimbursement purposes, the study is to include about 200 patients over three years at the two centers.

In October 2012, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved ExAblate’s use in alleviating pain from cancerous bone tumors. A randomized international clinical trial at 10 to 15 sites will soon begin comparing ExAblate with radiation therapy – currently the gold standard for the pain of metastasized bone cancer – as a first line of defense for newly diagnosed patients.

But, now comes the most amazing challenge that has been conquered by ExAblate O.R.  as now it is possible to get past the blood-brain barrier

Meanwhile, InSightec’s related product, ExAblate Neuro, recently received the CE Mark in Europe for the treatment of three common neurological disorders: essential tremor, neuropathic pain and Parkinson’s disease tremors.

In the United States, the system is undergoing FDA-approved safety and effectiveness trials in these three areas. Using focused ultrasound in the brain is revolutionary because it gets past the blood-brain barrier as drugs cannot.

As opposed to surgery and ionizing radiation, two current alternatives to treat these conditions, ExAblate Neuro leaves the patient’s skull intact and is entirely non-invasive.

 

HELLO KITTY TURNS 40

Posted By on October 19, 2014

Inexorable, time passes for all of us.  Today, it’s Hello Kitty, the sweet and sexy kitty that has come in all versions, already 40 years ago, leading a life of love and tenderness, as women and girls all over used her to transmit feelings and passions in subtle ways.  Enjoy the article, it’s informative and nostalgic.

It was the Japanese, who straying slightly from the Ninja Turtles and the 1992 JaHello Kittypanese Super Sentai series, who created the first simple coin purse that was sold in Japan back in 1974.  

In time, Hello Kitty has become a multi-billion dollar empire — $8 billion worth of products bearing her image sold internationally in 2013.  The beauty of it is that she is attractive, sweet, appealing to young girls and secretly also to adult women tagging along their innocent teen ages.  

Fittingly, the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles is presenting a carefully curated variety of goods from the last four decades — as well as Hello Kitty-inspired art — in a celebratory Hello Kitty retrospective.  hello kitty machine gun A2 b

Time passes and for once it is good to offer a commentary unrelated to abortions, beheadings, and rather concentrate on Hello Kitty turning an awful lot of 40 years .   Enjoy!

ELIANA BENADOR: GRETA’S WISHFUL THINKING WILL NOT WORK

Posted By on October 7, 2014

Last night Greta van Susteren surprised the world with an until now unique initiative, she offered her platform so Muslim leaders could condemn their own extremism and terrorists in front of her national audience.  As many others, van Susteren thinks “not enough Muslim leaders are doing enough to speak out against such actions.”

There in lies one of the weak points in her thinking.   As she further explained, “it’s not fair for any American to link the Islamic religion itself to terrorism, and said, “I have a message to Muslim leaders. If they hate this stereotype, and I’m sure they do, they need to help stop it, and that is by having the courage to step up and condemn––loudly, clearly, and repetitively––Islamic extremism.”

And while she did credit the 120 Muslim scholars who wrote an open letter condemning ISIS, Van Susteren didn’t think that would be enough:   “Here’s my offer. I will give any Muslim leader of national or international stature the platform, right here on the record, to condemn Islamic extremism and to make a call to arms to every Muslim leader of every mosque to do the same: condemn Islamic extremism.”

It’s despairing to see how many of the talking voices are so ignorant and so willing to place blinders and do whatever it takes to whitewash the Islamic religion, which is far from innocent in these last historic events that are unraveling beginning from and in the Muslim Middle East.

Cruelty and barbarism are being practiced in front of a silent world, thanks to Islam.

And, yet, Greta van Susteren excuses and wants to provide the opportunity to ‘authorities” from the Muslim world to explain how much they ‘condemn” their terrorism and extremism.

For one, there is the now infamous “taqqiya”, the Islamic regulation that gives the right to Muslims to distort the truth in order to advance the cause of world domination as stipulated in the Koran and in sharia laws.

Then, the so-called experts who have no idea of the intense role of “family” in the Muslim world, including the “extended” sense of “family, thus Muslim “Brotherhood”, if you had not thought about it.  Greta

The reason why I explain all this, is that there is an infrastructure for terrorism to blossom and boom in the Islamic world, and that’s called, family, relatives, close-quasi-family friends and so on.

Some want to hear the “moderates” who are so lame and “neutral” that their actions or, rather, their lack thereof, are tacitly promoting and backing their extremism without much ado.

Greta invites who?   The head of CAIR?  Not good.  Or the other possibility, Zuhdi Jasser?   Not good at all.   And all the others, in between?  Nope.  Not good.

Besides, what does a lame “condemnation” mean?  Absolutely nothing.

Just as the American leaders and some people want to send “boots on the ground”, so  should these wishful thinkers demand that their famous “Muslim leaders” go ON THE GROUND.

What does anyone want them to do from the West? In fact, Muslim leaders should and MUST live in their own countries, organize the opposition, rally dissent and prepare a revolution to face the Islamist Fascist State.

Words are nothing against the barbarians.  Especially words uttered from thousands of miles away.

So, Greta van Susteren’s wishful thinking is wonderful, but it is nothing other than that:  Wishful thinking.

And dangerous wishful thinking, at tbat, because with those people are, mistakenly, led to  believe that they are achieving something, as the millions vociferous on every and any social networking who are “fixing” the world from the comfy spot at the end of their fingers.

That’s nothing else but wishful thinking, and it is a deviation of reality.

Meanwhile, the hordes of barbarians continue to advance and are now helped by the ruling of leftist governments worldwide, who have put a halt on media and search engines, that no longer bring to the forefront,  pictures with horrendous beheadings, mass shootings, rapes, buried-alive people, and so on.

Soon enough, Greta will feel great bringing on her program some “courageous” Muslim leaders, yes, condemning extremism and terrorism committed by their own in the name of Allah.

And that will not make a difference for the manyfold heads that will continue rolling down after being tortured alive -also in the name of Allah.

ELIANA BENADOR: SUICIDAL SWEDEN OFFICIALLY JOINS BARBARISM

Posted By on October 5, 2014

Years ago, I attended the Nobel Prize award ceremony, a few days celebrating the new awardees in medicine, economy, literature and more, EXCEPT for the Nobel “Peace” Prize which is not awarded in Stockholm but in Oslo, Norway.

I stayed at the Grand Hotel overlooking the Royal Palace.  Every December 10, the same function repeats, the award ceremony, the royal banquet with the royal family in

Sweden officially joins barbarism

Sweden officially joins barbarism

attendance, and some other smaller tokens as the morning St. Nicholas which I missed.

The shine and splendour of the Nobel Prize has gone tarnished with the years.

On the one hand, the Swedes know that over 20% of Nobel prize winners are Jews.  Naturally, most of those Jews are non-observant, liberals.

On the other hand, they have had no qualms giving the Nobel “Peace” Prize to Arafat, to Mandela and, the one has boomeranged, to Obama for a “peace” he never has wanted, kept or respected.

Meanwhile, Sweden has, almost like all other Scandinavian countries, opened their doors to Muslim immigration, who have brought along their Islam, their Koran, their sharia, their terrorism, their abuse against poor women, and their other horrific practices.

Sweden’s auto-defeatist and suicidal policies have gone so far as to legalise the criminalisation of any critic against Islam.

Now, as ultimate affront against the civilised world, Sweden has recognised Palestine and its barbarians, those who have been attacking and massacring the innocent population in Israel.

Indeed, Palestine is now acknowledged by Sweden as if though it be a country, when it’s not and if it’s up to G d, it will never be.

ELIANA BENADOR: ISRAEL PROTECTING HER OWN SENDS OBAMA TO HELL

Posted By on October 5, 2014

After the world has seen America’s leaders unhesitatingly sending thousands of troops to the eye of the storm, Israel has sent a clear negative reply to one of the staunchest enemies of the Jewish people and of the Land of Israel, President Obama’s Ambassador to the U.N., Samantha Powell.

Powell had requested from the Land of King David, to simply oblige the U.N. and U.S. request that Israel send help to the Ebola affected region, “because of the past successes the IDF had in sending reinforce for natural as well as humanitarian disasters, as in Japan’s tsunami or Haiti’s earthquakes, both as devastating in human casualties as in physical disaster, as reported by Ynet News.

In the recent war waged by Hamas against Israel, the U.S. took sides with the Palestinians and cut off flights to Israel.

It has however, continued to provide flight connections to the Ebola-stricken West Africa.

“Does Samantha Power not see the double standard here? To summarize: the United States canceled flights to Israel earlier this summer because of one errant rocket from Gaza that hit near Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv, but now wants Israel to send help to hot-zones in Africa?

“Israel was somehow unsafe for air travel, but there are no worries flying Israelis to Liberia or Sierra Leone?”

Israel News Now had the post, “Israel rejects U.S. request on Ebola relief in Africa.” Because?

Well, “Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon says assisting in medical relief in Liberia and Sierra Leone would risk infecting Israeli personnel.”

One blogger put it a little more bluntly. Following a reference to Ya’alon were the words “The hell I’ll expose my troops to Ebola.”

But it did have an explanation: “The Foreign Ministry recommended the Defense Ministry respond positively to the Americans’ request, even though it was a complex mission, which runs the risk of infection for medical crews, who would have been forced to wear full [hazmat] suits. … However, after examining the request and mission details, the Defense Ministry decided against Israel’s participation, saying there was no feasible way to provide for the safety of the Israeli doctors and medical crews, which then could return to Israel and further spread the virus.”

An anonymous commenter added, “Good for Israel. I’m an American and I applaud Israel for telling Obama to go to hell in public.”

The U.S., meanwhile, confirmed on Friday that up to 3,900 U.S. soldiers will be sent to that hot zone for command control, logistics, civil affairs and medical help.

Department of Defense spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said the soldiers’ exposure to Ebola will be limited.

WND had reported one day earlier that the Pentagon is planning to spend at least $1 billion on the effort, and critics were questioning why Obama was using valuable, highly trained warriors to provide mostly logistical and engineering support for health workers trying to stop the spread of Ebola there.

At Friday’s news conference, those answers really weren’t available.

Kirby earlier had said the troops would be setting up the infrastructure for an operation that will be run by the State Department’s U.S. Agency for International Development, or USAID, and the Centers for Disease Control.

He said then the effort would not include U.S. military personnel treating Ebola patients. Instead, their function will be in support of other health-care workers who are the experts in the Ebola treatment process.

WND requests for answers about why U.S. troops are being used in a scene containing a deadly viral disease didn’t generate any responses. He also couldn’t respond to questions about whether other countries could be helping, saying those invitations were up to the government of Liberia.

On Friday, he said 1,400 soldiers would be moved over to Africa on an as-needed basis, but the early surveys of the needs suggested that up to 3,900 soldiers would be required, and that was what was authorized.

Besides all the above, Israel is right in not sending their people to “help” on the epidemic that Ebola will turn to be.   What is shocking is that Americans seem not to care a hoot about their soldiers being contaminated and carrying with them the deadly virus.

Indeed, as per the White House and the American president, the U.S. is “confident they can tackle the Ebola crisis -at risk of their by now 3,900 troops that can for sure carry the virus safely on their way back home.

To be sure, even bioethicists are doubtful of the development of the contagion.  Indeed, there is an experimental treatment called ZMapp, from Spain and that had never before been tested in humans.

ZMapp is not the answer to the Ebola epidemic ravaging West Africa. There is no chance of getting a significant amount of this drug made for many months. Deploying more health care workers, face guards, moon suits, gloves and antiseptic, along with restrictions on travel and burying the dead, is the only way to get the epidemic under control.

What is very troubling is that the only people known to have gotten the drug to date are two Americans and a Spaniard. The drug’s maker, Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc.Ebola treatment, said Monday that it also responded to a request for ZMapp from a West African nation and that its supply “is exhausted.” It did not name the nation or say whether a patient there had received the drug.

Unbelievably, the American Administration “declared healed” two doctors that initially were repatriated with the Ebola virus in full action.

Those doctors should have been left in situ, so as to not spread the epidemic, but that appears to be the least of the concerns of the American Administration, the safety of the American people.

ELIANA BENADOR: A WEEK OF REPENTANCE

Posted By on October 1, 2014

Repentance, that magic word.  And this world has so much to repent for.

The world at large will be on trial this coming Saturday, and the vast majority ignores this.  If they only knew.

Life means to be responsible for one another.  The mischiefs and crimes of some are responsibility of others.  The goodness of some reflects on the life of others.

An element of true Repentance or Teshuva is in its perfection, according to the Rambam, is when a person is faced with the opportunity to commit a sin which he has previously transgressed, but due to his repentance, he does not succumb. The Talmud teaches that a person who repeatedly transgresses a certain sin views the sin as a permissible act.

The Rambam teaches us that the mindset which is required for Teshuva is one in which a person divorces himself from his actions of the past. A person must feel that his past actions do not reflect his true nature, and furthermore, that under the same exact circumstances he would not repeat them. Perhaps he may sin again in the future, but that is not because the behavior is ingrained in him from the past.

We cannot guarantee that we will never sin again. However, the knowledge that the sinful acts of the past are not part of our present will ensure that they are not motivating factors for committing the same sin in the future.

A person must feel that his past does not control him. The ability to come to this realization is not a difficult task. If a person is truly interested in changing his way of life, this mindset will be natural and accessible to him.

 How to forgive?

Look in the mirror. Recognize that you are a difficult person to live with, that you have your own imperfections and limitations that others have to deal with all the time. Forgive the weaknesses of others the same way you overlook your own mistakes.

See the Big Picture. Think of Yom Kippur as a lookout on the top of a mountain that you have been climbing all year. See your days and their moments spread out before you. Be willing to look now at this big picture of your life. Your ultimate goals. Your beliefs. See each person in your life as part of that picture. What lesson have they taught you even if you had to learn it through pain? What message is God sending you by putting this person in your life?

Say Something. Asking forgiveness doesn’t require a long letter or a meticulously planned speech. Often we just need to say something. Anything.I’m sorry. Let’s start over. I want to talk. It’s that first step that begins to chip away at the buried resentment.

Break the Cycle. Sometimes we get into patterns with people that we love that aren’t working. Even if you feel that you are ‘right,’ break out of the cycle. Stop having the same argument over and over again. Have the courage to put blame aside and say: Let’s start over. “Insanity is not doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results; insanity is doing the same thing over and over again knowing full well what the results will be.” Anonymous

Forgive Life. Sometimes we resent others for hard circumstances in our own lives. It is easier to blame people than to face our own disappointments. We need to go one step further. To forgive God for all of our frustrations and challenges. To forgive Him for hiding His Face when we needed Him most. To forgive Him for the times when it seemed like He gave up on us altogether. To now turn around and say thank You. For life. For another chance. For the gift of forgiveness itself. Knock incessantly on the closing gate of Yom Kippur. He wants to forgive us and for us to forgive.

So much to learn and to forgive.  And, yet, the most amazing is that there are for the future also other ways to repent.

We are told that there are, on a daily basis, courts that are working 24 hours.  Those judges are G d’s angels, and do not have His Compassion, His Rachamim.

However, we can have access to G d IF we decide to repent on a daily basis.  Our sages say, one hour a day for prayer and repentance is necessary.  We need to review the actions and behaviour of each day and accept those transgressions, repent and promise that we will never do it again.

It seems that HaShem is there, ready to forgive us with the added bonus that by doing this, we have a credit in our favour in the afterlife, and that makes this effort so very worthwhile.

Chatima tova…  May we all be inscribed in the Book of Life for a good year.

Eliana Benador: Litmus Test of Obama’s Allegiance

Posted By on September 10, 2014

What makes the world expect that the otherwise pro-Muslim leaders of the Western hemisphere are going to step up to the challenge and actually fight those who, with their actions are precisely implementing the global dream of world domination on behalf of Islam and its all-encompasing, ad hoc legal system, sharia?

To be sure, leaders of the so-called Western civilization, have appeared threatening with grandiose statements such as the American Vice-President Joe Biden’s vow to “follow ISIL to gates of hell.” He also said that, “The American people are so much stronger, so much more resolved than any enemy can fully understand… ” Which “American people?” Maybe he refers to the civilian mercenaries that the current administration is going to shove down people’s throats?

At the international level, Americans “top diplomatic and defense leaders pressed a core coalition of 10 nations to summon the willpower to go after the Islamic State group in Iraq militarily and financially, and said they must build a plan by the time the U.N. General Assembly meets in about two weeks.”

When President Barack Obama delivered his infamous Cairo Speech in 2009, he said “ … throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.” And also, “That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”

True to his word, the president has implemented measures that have facilitated the Muslim Brotherhood infiltration at key jobs of his administration.

Under his leadership, his administration ordered the removal of any rhetoric including Islam and Muslim terrorism from official manuals at government institutions, such as the FBI, CIA, DHS, and so on.

When Major Nidal Malik Hassan committed a terrorist attack against his innocent unsuspecting colleagues at Fort Hood, murdering 13 people and wounding 32 others in 2009, his was labeled “workplace violence,” not terrorism, and has remained so until now. He was sentenced to death, unanimously, in August 2013. However, as no active-duty service member has been executed since 1961, legal experts argue that it will probably take many years, if ever, before the sentence will be carried out. And, here comes the main caveat: a military death sentence requires final approval by the president, as commander in chief. Would Obama approve that? It is highly unlikely.

Obama’s allegiance to Islam is consistent: This story was published last year in Egypt’s Rose El-Youssef magazine. It announced the appointments of six Muslim Brotherhood operatives to key positions, thus the White House went “from a position hostile to Islamic groups and organizations in the world, to the largest and most important supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

A few weeks ago, on August 20, in the aftermath of James Foley’s beheading, Obama advanced his understanding of the Islamic State: “So ISIL speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents. No just god would stand for what they did yesterday and what they do every single day. ISIL has no ideology of any value to human beings. Their ideology is bankrupt. They may claim out of expediency that they are at war with the United States or the West, but the fact is they terrorize their neighbors and offer them nothing but an endless slavery to their empty vision and the collapse of any definition of civilized behavior.”

The president initially wanted to erase any association between the Islamic State and Islam but, for each atrocity committed by those terrorists, there exists theflagrant evidence of a Koran edict:

“Beheading people: “When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks…” (Koran 47:4).

Subjugating women and girls: “Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them” (Koran 4:34).

Killing Muslims: “They wish that you reject Faith, as they have rejected (Faith), and thus that you all become equal (like one another)… But if they turn back (from Islam), take (hold) of them and kill them wherever you find them, and take neither Auliya’ (protectors or friends) nor helpers from them” (Koran 4:89).

Killing Christians: “Fight those who believe not in God nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by God and His Apostle, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (Koran 9:29).”

Later, at a press conference in Estonia, the president first addressed the danger with a forceful rhetoric, only to retract his position a few sentences later: “We know that if we are joined by the international community, we can continue to shrink ISIL’s sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its financing, its military capabilities to the point where it is a manageable problem.”

Indeed. “shrinking” may be the president’s goal of his speech tonight.

How can anyone expect the son of a Muslim, in this case, the American president, to plan to annihilate these or any other Muslims for that matter?

Besides, it is also natural that Mr. Obama will not hesitate to send troops, most likely elite teams, of course. Bankrupting America in every possible way, is within the line of this administration.

On the other hand, the Arab League of nations is “uniting” to fight and stop the Islamic State.

It is hard to imagine Iran joining forces with Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Al Qaeda, and others, and figure where the Muslim Brotherhood will fit in all this and who will be against whom. In the case of Syria, President Basher al-Assad has been fighting for years against the terrorists that Obama helped and had it not been for the intervention of President Vladimir Putin, he would be history now. To the forceful anti-Putinists, a question: Assad could be replaced by the Al Qaeda terrorists and, currently, even by the bloodier thirstiest sub-humans? Now there is a lot of choice. This, naturally, is providing the golden opportunity to bring down President Assad’s compound, in one of those air strikes.

However, the only ones who can straighten this, may be the militaries of Muslim Middle Eastern countries. They speak the same language, share the same culture and civilization.

If there is anyone who can save the day, it will be the armies of Muslim countries who will not put up with the sub-humans who are beheading babies, young children and adults, who are raping, enslaving and mutilating women, who are burying alive their own and the yazidis and Christian populations, who are lining up hundreds of men and shooting them like cowards, on the back, and more and worse.

However, the main question remains: What if this is the dream situation to achieve Muslim world domination? And, with his track record, would President Barack Obama really want to stop that?

After all, the zombies are not about to wake up.

In other words, unless you are a proud, angry person,
you will accept your best friend and your love the way
HaShem sent this person to you.
Why? Simply because challenges are there to serve as
lessons to you. They are tests to your patience, to you

Above all, they are tests for your capacity to really “love”.

ELIANA BENADOR: LEARNING FROM OUR SHORTCOMINGS

Posted By on August 17, 2014

B”H

We all have shortcomings. We all make mistakes. And each of them should become a stepping stone to make us better persons. Surely, the number one element is to accept we are wrong. Number two is to decide if we “need” to change. Number three, is to decide if we “want” to change. Number four, is to decide if it is “worthwhile” to change. If you answer all the above with a massive “yes”, then you need to set up a plan. And Item Number one is: A daily reminder. 

Indeed, a “reminder” is a precious note that will remind you of your commitment to succeed changing what you need to change. 

Do not let anyone fool you when people tell you “I am too old to change.” 

That’s totally false. 

With age, we become mature, but not rotten. That will come when we are no longer alive. With age, we become wiser to learn to prioritise what’s truly important for us and that what’s not -according to your brain and your heart. 

The brain will make you think logically and wisely. 

And the heart will make you compassionate so you won’t behave like a robot. 

Those were my random thoughts for the beginning of our week. 

In all, do your best, with your brain and with your heart. 

And, leave the outcome to HaShem
