  1. Chazal say, “Hashem created the world to bestow His loving-kindness'”. We are made in the image of Hashem. It does not say Hashem desired to bestow loving-kindness’ on Himself, Blessed be He. Learn from this. Practice altruism and you will find peace within you and without you. Hashem does not want us become ever-more infatuated with ourselves to the extent we have become insecure, neurotic and worse, Rahman L’Tlan. Are we going to continue down the same path? Hashem does not say, “It’s all about me”. It’s all about the other. You will thus find Wisdom and peace of mind and it will surround you and infuse all that surrounds you.

  2. Imagine we lived in a world where education looked like this. Imagine if kids in school would be getting this message continuously. Imagine how much healthier kids would be and imagine how much they would attain. The greatest crisis is the crisis of crushing self-esteem. As Dr. Twersky ZT’L famously said, “I’ve written many books with many titles, but at their core, every one of them talked about the same idea – the idea of self-esteem.”

  3. I think an individual needs to establish a healthy balance between thinking about him/herself & others. I don’t think being mevater at all times makes for a happy & healthy individual and it’s very possible that one could start to harbor resentment adhereing to begin mevater all the time. Happy Pesah Sheni to all. Bore’ Olam should protect us all.
