Opening the World With a Key – Twice, With Yirah and With Tora

אמר רבה בר רב הונא, כל אדם שיש בו תורה ואין בו יראת שמים דומה לגזבר, שמסרו לו מפתחות הפנימיות ומפתחות החיצוניות לא מסרו לו” שבת ל”א

The Torah is a key,
What does the Torah open?
Torah and Yiras Shamayim open the world
And how it brings us to shame and culture?

The Sechel Which Disables The Yetzer – Yiroh On Tour Face – Embarrassement

וּבַעֲבוּר תִּהְיֶה יִרְאָתוֹ עַל פְּנֵיכֶם לְבִלְתִּי תֶחֱטָאוּ”  שמות

According to this Pasuk, there is power in the world that makes it impossible to do an Aveira: Yiroh on your face. It’s like culture
Yiroh on your face is a kind of intellect, not a feeling of embarrassment, because Rabbi Israel writes that emotion is a fading thing
The purpose of giving the Torah is that we will not do Aveiros, It can not be that the Torah was given for something that is fading
How to get there?

Need to Create Culture to Combat the Yetzer

ריש לקיש אמר: אין אדם עובר עבירה אא”כ נכנס בו רוח שטות”   סוטה  ג”

The study of morality needs to create a  culture.  That a person should build an internal culture for himself (that he will not do an Aveira as it is clear to him without explaining why not go with pajamas on the street)

How to Build a Center in Stages (Yungeleit Lakewood)

In order to build a center for life, it has to be done in stages;
Conceptual first,  then actions.
‘כל שמעשיו מרובין מחכמתו, חכמתו מתקימת”  אבות ג’ ט”
What does that mean?

Emuna is Central to Life – By Working on Birkos Hanehenin

This Shiur was said in front of  “Ba’alei Batim” in Far Rockaway.

We have a big task: To bring Emuna to our heart = To bring Emuna to the center of our life.   Like it’s said in the Pasuk: שמות ל”א, ו’ :  וּבְלֵב כָּל חֲכַם לֵב נָתַתִּי חָכְמָה

There is something that blocks us from saying a ‘Bracha’ at loud, why is that?
– Because Birkos Hanehenin  are not the center of our life!

We can change this by changing the concept of saying Birkos Hanehenin.
The main concept of Birkos Hanehenin is Ha’Karas Ha’Tov. Not all we get is self understood.
The perception of a Bracha is that you see the world with outlook of Ha’Karas Ha’Tov.

Birkos Hanehenin shows us that what we’ve ate and enjoyed is a little part from a much much bigger picture,  and that is the beginning of Emuna

By working on the concept of Birkos Hanehenin, we can make the Emuna to the central of our life.
