Pascals Law and Be the Best You!

Wednesday, 27 May, 2020 - 10:21 pm

Last week we spoke about the Red, Yellow and Green Jew. 

Some of the responses I got were: I am a goyish grey (from a Non-Jew), if that is how you define the colors, I will never be a Green Jew etc. 

The truth is that we all can be in the green category if we define green properly. 

The Tanna Devei Eliyahu says "A person must ask: When will my deeds reach the level of the deeds of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? "  

Can any of us have our deeds reach the spiritual stature of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? Let’s be practical, ___(fill this line with all the reasons you think you can't be like our forefathers)____.

To this we turn to science. Pascal's law, as I understand it (engineers please correct me), is that the pressure applied to any part of an enclosed liquid will be transmitted equally in all directions through the liquid. If the container is full, you notice this more. It is irrelevant how much water is in the container. The pressure is transmitted throughout the fluid equally. This law is the source of how hydraulic lifts work.

The Torah is compared to liquid. What were the deeds of Abraham Isaac and Jacob? That they did their absolute best, they filled up their potential.  What we learn is when will I do the best to be the best me, the most connected to Hashem me, the most mitzvah observant me that I can be?

We need to know that the pressure we apply to ourselves causes an equal effect throughout the whole world. My Mitzvah changes the world. 

You may say, Rabbi Kushi, this sounds great BUT I am not religious! I am not Moses!

"I'm afraid!" replies Zusha. "Because when I get to heaven, I know G-d's not going to ask me 'Why weren't you more like Moses?' or 'Why weren't you more like King David?' I am afraid that G-d will ask 'Zusha, why weren't you more like Zusha?' And then what will I say?!"

Don't judge yourself as to why you aren't Moses or Queen Esther, but if you are the best you!
