with the rapid growth of world terrorism-including many muslim groups-Which country in the world today do you feel is the safest to live in & farthest away from being hit by non-stop terror? & why do you feel it is the country you choose?
Antarctica seems to be very safe. But finding a regular minyan would probably be challenging.
Olam ha-Ba is quite safe. It’s the world of emes. This world is the world of sheker (fake world). Don’t lose sleep over it. In a wink of an eye you’ll realize its a bad dream and no more.
Best is to be in Eretz Yisrael. That way even if you are killed,c”v, you get the zchus of dying in Eretz Yisrael al kiddush Hashem. Also, it’s much less scary to be killed when you are so close to the Shechina.
And it’s for sure much less scary to live when you are so close to the Shechina!
Mann tracht un gott lacht
Olam Habbah, and the Emess for that matter, is not necessarily the safest place for everyone
Gehinnom is good for us.
“Olam ha-Ba is quite safe. It’s the world of emes. This world is the world of sheker (fake world). Don’t lose sleep over it. In a wink of an eye you’ll realize its a bad dream and no more.”
Wouldn’t that apply to anything in “this world”? So there’s no point in expending effort to get a good-paying job, finding a pleasant place to live, etc.?
He was talking about feeling safe. We can’t do anything about it, so there is no point in worrying. This wasn’t about expending effort.
