Mishe Nichnas Adar Marbim BiSimcha, is generally translated as “When Adar begins, we increase in joy.” As we are in the month of Adar, with Purim just a few days away, we should be feeling especially happy. However, read this incredible line from R’ Avraham Yaakov Hacohen Pam zt”l:
“People are always searching for the city of happiness, but they don’t realize that it is a state of mind.”
On this line, R’ Paysach Krohn adds that the Hebrew word BiSimcha (joy) is made up of the exact same letters as Machshova (thought).
It’s up to you!
