Guest Post: The Power of Thanking HaShem

The Power of Thanking HaShem by Mr. Cohen [GUEST POST]

This true short story happened to me on 2016 August 10:

I went to a hardware store to make three sets of keys.

After the three sets of keys were made, I left the hardware store.

When I arrived at my destination, the third set of keys was missing.

I checked all my pockets and my knapsack and any place where I might have put them – more than once. I could not find them at my destination, so I thought that I must have left them in the hardware store.

On my way back to the hardware store, I thanked HaShem for giving me the new keys.  Then I thanked HaShem in advance for helping me find the lost keys. Less than five seconds later, the lost keys popped out of a compartment in my knapsack that I never noticed before, right before my eyes.  The lost keys were found!

Before I conclude my true short story, please allow me to point out that this was not the first time that I thanked HaShem that day; it was the 30th or 40th time that I thanked HaShem that day.  If it would have been the first time that day that I thanked HaShem, I do not know if the results would have been the same.
Last but not least, please allow me to recommend THE GARDEN OF GRATITUDE by Rabbi Shalom Arush, translated into English by Rabbi Lazer Brody.

“Justice is what Torah refers to as justice. Compassion is what Torah designates as compassion. Non-Torah ideas of justice and compassion have played no small part in the moral decadence so prevalent in modern civilization.”

Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski MD said:

When Rabbi Nachman [of Breslov, born 1772 CE and died in 1810 CE] said that despair does not exist in reality, he meant to say that: If you feel hopeless, [then] you should have the presence of mind to recognize that this feeling can have no basis in reality. 

You should realize that the feeling of despair is a distortion of reality, a hallucination, or delusion brought about by the sitra achra [the side of evil].
