When we’re conversing with someone, do we spend the whole time searching for launching points for what we want to say?  Or, do we actually listen to appreciate what they are trying to relate?

The root of the Hebrew word for humility (anava) is la’anot, which means “to answer.” When the humble person speaks, he participates as one component of the whole.  He truly responds. ~ R’ Micha Berger

    How are you? I hope you’re doing well I want to tell you I just spent the last two months going through rav Miller’s sefarim, a 4 book set on chovos ha levavos. It literally changed my entire mindset on how I approach daily life including Dovening.. walking outside and business. In my humble opinion I think if our kids can leave school just knowing shaar bechina and bitachon. I think they don’t yeshiva.  Sent from Yahoo Mail on Android
