In the springtime, all of creation renews itself. Renewal, especially self-renewal, is a wonderful process. Renewal is particularly important in relationships, to keep them fresh and meaningful. Communication is also vital to the success of a relationship. With this in mind, this time of the year is ideal to renew our own personal relationship with the Creator. We do that by finding a nice quiet place where we can speak to Him in solitude. Here's how...

The account of the four sons in the Passover Haggadah is like a kaleidoscope where we see many different images. We see how four general types of people relate to emuna.

The Seder night is when we tell the story of our Exodus from Egypt. This is one of the Torah's 613 commandments that one can fulfill only once a year on the first night of Passover. The Zohar and the Gemara laud the amazing attributes of this mitzvah. It strengthens emuna and solidifies the family. In addition, it enhances one's inner joy, especially when we tell of the Exodus as if we were there...

What does it mean to negotiate with emuna? It means that our negotiations must be permeated with emuna, with full and complete faith in Hashem. Emuna-filled negotiations mean that the businessperson believes in all the Torah's laws of commerce. Such a person will never touch a cent that is not his. He or she certainly won't swindle or shortchange a client or customer. They won't charge for hours they didn't work or for services they didn't provide. What's more, they'll never lack what they need...

The Chassidic Movement began in the Ukraine, founded by the holy Baal Shem Tov (1698-1760). Many of the Chassidic Masters came from the Ukraine, such as the Maggid of Mezeritch, Rebbe Nachman of Breslev, Rebbe Zusha of Annipoli and many more. Both my teacher and I are also Ukrainian Jews. We have a rich past of total dedication to the Almighty and His Torah, even in the face of the most dire persecution throughout the ages. But we have a very rich folklore, with poignant stories that teach us life's true values. This is one I cherish, which shows what true riches are.

Ponder these four important characteristics of a loving parent, as follows: The loving parent favors his/her child more than anything else in this world. The loving parent focuses on his/her child's good points. The loving parent is forgiving. The loving parent attends to all the necessary needs of his/her child. How many parents do you know who can objectively and honestly say that they fulfill the above four criteria? We can't possibly know, but one fact we do know. No parent on earth fulfills the above four criteria so completely as our Father in Heaven does. Let's see how:

Logic and intellect see things through physical eyes. Just as physical gravity brings an object down, logic and intellect knock a person down. Their interpretation of events is negative and pessimistic. On the other hand, emuna sees through spiritual eyes. Spiritual gravity lifts one up. Emuna is beyond the brain and beyond the realm of negativity. With emuna, there is truly no despair.

Without emuna, life's tribulations look like a lion about to devour us. No wonder so many people succumb to fear and anxiety. With emuna, life's tribulations still look like a lion. Yet, the lion is only a costume that our loving Father in Heaven is dressed up in. That changes our outlook completely, as we're about to learn.
