    I heard Gaon summoned The Dubno Maggid to give him musser. I too am asking for musser. Today I shtyged so much that I feel "bishvili nivra haolam", that mamesh my learning is mikayem the whole world and it was all created for me, as chazal tell me!

    I need some emergency serious musser to deflate my ego and help me return to my usual midah of sincere humility.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    A Bochur once went to the Steipler, confessing he was having problems with Gaavah.

    The Steipler looked at him and burst out laughing. "You?" He laughed. "Problems with Gaavah?"

    The Bochur got the message and never had problems again.

    That's not gayva. Its how we are supposed to feel so that we keep shtyging.

    2nd chapter of pirkei avos, 9th mishna
    if you start being all proud of yourself cause of all the torah youve learned, DONT, it is the reason why u were created

    u see a garbage man running a victory lap after picking up the trash? no, he was just doing his job
    you were just doing yours

    "Today I shtyged so much that I feel "bishvili nivra haolam", that mamesh my learning is mikayem the whole world "

    Good. Very good.

    Now try shtyging with some dry crackers, a little water on a hard cold floor at night with a candle. That's the way our ancestors did it.

    When you're finished, you'll know what to feel like.

    Incorrigible; eccentric; somewhere between mean and average; sometimes only a bit over the top; arbitrarily engaged in cynicism.

    I'll help.

    You have no idea what gaava is, and you have no idea what chazal were talking about.
    I'm not sure you have any idea about anything.

    Thanks for all the helpful responses and advice. They all helped and I got rid of the gaavah. I am feeling humble again.

    It's amazing how the CR can help you "return to my usual midah of sincere humility."
    It reminds me of a bumper sticker; my humility is so great all my other qualities don't even show!

    I saw your krum learning and svaras in the Gutten Shabbos thread. You have no right to be gaavadik about your learning.

    There's your musser...thanks for asking.

    Ironically, redundant subtitles can be redundantly ironic.

    Don't be humble... you're not that great.
