welcome back chayav!
you’re the man (or woman?)April 11, 2012 2:48 am at 2:48 am in reply to: Rav Chaim Pinchos Scheinberg & Baseball #867063
“D. Dovshtein: A man learning Torah 12 solid hours every single day or a woman doing Bikur Cholim 12 solid hours every single day is both a mitzvah and a madreiga.
Don’t ever tell anyone not to learn 12 hour every single day or not to do Bikur Cholim 12 hours every single day.”
Shaychus to anything I said? (besides the fact that you’re wrong)April 10, 2012 4:51 pm at 4:51 pm in reply to: Rav Chaim Pinchos Scheinberg & Baseball #867061
RABBAIM- So how come prishus is the 13th perek of msilas y’sharim coming after z’hirus, z’rizus, and n’kiyus? and it’s linked with chasidus (going lifnim mishuras hadin)?
Maybe do some research before rattling off mitzvos out of context.
13th perek look it up.
Prishus is a madreiga. It’s something you do when you’re holding by it, not like tzitzis and t’filin that you do no matter what.April 9, 2012 10:17 pm at 10:17 pm in reply to: Quality of language in YWN comments and postings #866939
Agreed but besides the grammalicious quality of language –
People should watch the mussar and menchlichkiteness of their speech. Just because it’s not in person and you’re speaking with a fake name doesn’t mean you could insult people and make them feel bad. THINK before you speak (and you even have a few seconds after with the ‘edit’ button)April 9, 2012 10:11 pm at 10:11 pm in reply to: Rav Chaim Pinchos Scheinberg & Baseball #867056
Umm no sorry incorrect that’s a fallacious deduction.
A person “need not strive” for PRISHUS until he’s holding on the madraga for it.April 9, 2012 9:44 pm at 9:44 pm in reply to: Is smoking mutar? #954577
Sorry about the cynicism, and I don’t smoke so this is not getting defensive. I just think it’s pretty ridiculous to have a thread with everyone making up their own “opinions in halacha” about an issue that the g’dolim have already dealt with.April 9, 2012 9:40 pm at 9:40 pm in reply to: Rav Chaim Pinchos Scheinberg & Baseball #867052
Shmoel – who said he was happy about finally getting the “TUMAH” of professional sports out of his heart?? (I think you made up the “tumah” part) Maybe he was just happy to have the ‘distraction’ out, or to reach a level of Prishus and Kedusha of having a heart fully devoted to Avodas Hashem.
That’s why I think this story is not necessarily a proof that no one should ever start following sports. For some people it’s good to follow sports. It’s a raya that when you’re a gadol on R’ Scheinberg’s level, then, you should be happy to not be following sports.April 9, 2012 9:30 pm at 9:30 pm in reply to: Is smoking mutar? #954576
Oh you’re right!
The Gadol Hador must have missed that step!
Quick call him up!
Sorry, I apologize, he must have been “mis-informed” (That’s the great heter going around nowadays for everything right?)April 9, 2012 6:52 pm at 6:52 pm in reply to: Is smoking mutar? #954573
The little I know – please provide your sources.
From R’ Elyashiv: It’s assur to *start* smoking (because sakana), but once someone is addicted, it is a tzorech for him so then it is not assur.
Background: The Noda B’yehuda was asked if hunting is mutar; he said no because there are many accidents, so it’s a sakana. But, if it is a tzorech for someone (i.e. his parnasa) then it is no longer assur. So too, someone that is addicted to smoking has a tzorech to smoke so it’s muttar.October 17, 2011 6:25 pm at 6:25 pm in reply to: Yalili concert tonight #818256

you interupt ppl constantlyMay 2, 2011 3:27 am at 3:27 am in reply to: Suggesting Shidduch for………yourself?! #913781
Why dont we make a shiduch in the coffee room!?May 2, 2011 3:19 am at 3:19 am in reply to: Anxiety-And Symptoms #795294
I 100% agree with most of what you said and ur general suggestion, but:
“No one ever would tell a diabetic that their illness comes from a lack of Bitachon.”
Thats because diabetes is a physical problem. Anxiety is a mental problem with physical symptoms; therefore, (in limited situations, I agree) it could be dealt with on working on bitachon, which is a mental thing.May 2, 2011 12:20 am at 12:20 am in reply to: Anxiety-And Symptoms #795289
lol no they talk about emotional health too dont worry. I agree with u totally i was just suggesting internalizing those things cuz sometimes, in some situations that is what works. Therefore I was just suggesting it here because different ppl are working with different issues and this tactic may work for some.
And stam, bitachon’s always comforting along the path because other processes may be longer, so bitachon keeps ur head up and mind focusedMay 1, 2011 11:56 pm at 11:56 pm in reply to: Anxiety-And Symptoms #795287
PBA: I hear wat your saying, but i have been told one time when i was anxious that its a lack of bitachon. I dont think its a stira; you can fight anxiety/nervousness by either uprooting the core cause of it like an emotional deep insecurity, etc. or by bitachon or covering it up with just getting used to it. (I’m dealing mostly with speaking in front of ppl / a person)May 1, 2011 5:56 pm at 5:56 pm in reply to: Wheres knish? #763181
ya i agree that ‘welcome’ made our humble coffee room seem like an exclusive business meeting that u cant speak up in unless u’v been there for ten yrs.May 1, 2011 5:16 pm at 5:16 pm in reply to: Anxiety-And Symptoms #795277
Ya i also have really bad nervous/anxiety issues. (not sure what the difference is if anyone wants to fill that in for me??)
Never heard of these tapes – what are they and where do i get them? and for how much $? (are they jewish or stam?)
I believe (I’ve been told) really focusing on bitachon, ain od milvado, Hashem will NEVER EVER EVER let you down and will ALWAYS do the BEST thing for you whether you DESERVE IT OR NOT can help these situations… cuz after all is there anything to be nervous about? ur like a child being held my its mother-obviously ur mothers gona take care of all ur needs.
Also focusing on ha’olom hazeh domeh l’frozdor and everything’s just a dream world here and nothing(like embarrassment etc) really matters because this worlds not the ikur, can help. Imagine ur on a boat to an island where ur gona stay forever. if u travel in first classic cruise, u’ll be simple on the island. but if the ride is hard work and u travel in the lowest of the low – on the island ull be THE MAN. obviously u wouldn’t care if u were traveling in the sewers if u just thought about that for a second!
But obviously thats MUCH MUCH easier said than done, it requires hours of mussar b’hispaalus ‘n stuffApril 27, 2011 9:18 pm at 9:18 pm in reply to: Allergic To The Sun? #762488

Ttto: one day (4purim)
In bed I lay
Its shachris soon
I just thank g-d I’m breathin
Then I say
Just hit the snooze
cuz I’m goin back to sleepin
Sometimes rebbi gets fed-up
But I never let ’em wake me up
And then negativity erupts
They hope one day that we’ll all show up
but I say:
All my life iv been prayin for
Iv been waitin for, for the people to say
That we won’t wake u up no more
We’ll just let u snore
Just keep dreamin away
One dayyyy one dayyy one dayyyMarch 7, 2011 7:52 am at 7:52 am in reply to: purim songs and poetry #747111
The ikur is to remember one thing
If u don’t drink it up it just won’t ring
Without alcohol evrythings unclear

Chayav inish lvisumei
We take that to mean all nite and all day
But not just purim like most do
Throw in rosh chodesh and shabos too
And while we’re @ it start 30 days befo’
To practice to be yotzei “yoser milimudo’
And shushan purim also to stop the ache
Of the hangerover if u made the classic mistake
Of poundin shaloch manos all that junk
And ull be smellin some real funk
So anyways practice in advance
And diet too be able to fit in tite pants
Don’t eat all month save ur calries for drank
And stay up all nite thinkin of the r”ch prank
Nevermind get a goodnite rest
Think of it in shiur that’s much mor fest
So spend all month testin out
Wat to drink wen u needa max-out
Wen u need the brains for gramin on the spot
But needa lack the busha to say wat u want
So start tonite don’t waste anytime
Drinl it up up&try bustin a rhyme
If it flows well that’s a-okay
If it don’t rhyme @ all then ur doin it rite!!March 4, 2011 9:20 pm at 9:20 pm in reply to: How many mishloach monos do you send? #747076

And this is a hakaras hatov song to my yeshiva/rebbi:
Thru the years and all the times
I just can’t seem to speak my mind
To express wats going on inside
Wen I think about the place
The fun and challenges we faced
Iv found the treasure where my heart resides
Dear rebbi u hav taught me evrything I kno
From amelus batorah and developing midos
Ratzon and bitachon and my job in this world
Rebi ul be always in my heart and soul
The back and forth evryday
Sugyas challenged in every way
Developing our true Yiras hashem
Hashkafa mussar how to live
To learn to grow and mostly to give
Connecting with emotions once againDecember 3, 2010 8:14 pm at 8:14 pm in reply to: Limericks! #1221296
This has similar ideas but its not the song:
Just can’t seem to figur things out
Things aren’t rollin the way they shud
Minds all clouded I duno wat its about
Heads on fire I wud smile if I cud
Ain Od Milvado He’s got it in control
U just do his ratzon and then things roll
Ur heating depression is His fleeting test
Evry little thing that happens is the best
UR best interest not anyone beside
Give it some thot let ur heart decide
It won’t take long
To realize ur wrong
And all thots are long gone
Except for one song…
Ain od milvado hashem is one and true
And His entire world was created just for you
All the mountains and the trees
And that perfect cool breeze
Its all from the One
All for You- his precious sonDecember 3, 2010 8:12 pm at 8:12 pm in reply to: My made up song #714537
The Motzei shabos hack
wher to go wher 2 rock
Wat to do wat to see
Dropin coin-flyin free
From miami 2 LA
2 dallas to ZA
From milwakee to the Qween
Wata scene kno wat I mean??
Fleishix-pizza, playin ball?
Indoor outdoor wats the call
Ideas bouncin off the walls
But in the end it all just falls
Knokin down the list 1by1
Wat not to do wat won’t be fun
& the nite wastes into lines n rhymes
But the hack itself creates good timesDecember 3, 2010 8:09 pm at 8:09 pm in reply to: Limericks! #1221295
Heres a song im working on, it has a tune but i cant exactly post that:
Ur on a boat its on its way
To paradise not far away
To remain ther for eternity
If u sit in the first class
With pleasures no one can surpass
Wen u arrive u will live simply
But if u ride with nothing
On the island u will be a king
The choice is urs – where do u take ur seat?
This world is one big hallway Wer only passing thru
Nothing that u have here Comes with you
U do ur hishtadlus Hashem covers the rest
The only goal we have here Is to stand thru every test
Motor cruise ships left and rite
Seem to carry thru the nite
But wen they fail – they sink in sea
If u don’t give in to the urge
Ur little boat will not submerge
Just set ur sail – the wind comes naturallyDecember 3, 2010 8:01 pm at 8:01 pm in reply to: Yaakov Shwekey – Libi Bamizrach Album – Rau Banim #725185

But the yetzer hara’s puttin up a serious fite
So u hav ur ups and u hav ur downs
U got ur smiles n u got ur frowns
The ikur is to realize this happens to all
Don’t think that ur the only one to lose and fall
Gota just keep pushin – get up off the floor
Ha’olam hazeh domeh l’fruzdor
Evry sigle actions gota be towards that goal
Day after day gota be m’kabel the Ol-
Malchus shomayim-try to pass evry test
