A7 Radio's "Lazer Beams" with Lazer Brody
Follow Israel Radio on
A person who lives with emuna, and particularly emuna in Hashem’s Divine Providence, sees life’s mini inconveniences as tiny tribulations and great gifts from Hashem that are all for the very best. These tribulations qualify as vessels of abundance and worthy spiritual receptacles for the blessings of Torah, the Land of Israel, and the World to Come. Such a person won’t be required to suffer serious tribulations to acquire these three marvelous commodities that are usually earned through suffering. So why suffer? Some people are naturally patient and even-tempered; even so, if they don’t get angry about life’s tiny inconveniences. Even so, if they don’t accept them lovingly and with emuna, their patience won’t be enough to mitigate harsh decrees and judgments. The principle of accepting tiny tribulations with emuna and love is so beneficial for virtually every situation in life. With emuna, we're calm, collected and still smile. Without emuna, we're a bag of frayed nerves.
Multi-talented author, speaker, composer and spiritual guide, Rabbi Lazer Brody came to Israel from the USA in 1970 after graduating from the University of Maryland’s College of Agriculture. A decorated veteran of an elite IDF Special Forces Unit, he left his mountaintop farm in Samaria in 1982 and began intensive Torah studies that led to his rabbinical ordination in 1992. Rabbi Brody pens the award-winning Lazer Beams weblog http://lazerbrody.typepad.com/ , is the English-language editor of Breslev Israel web magazine http://breslev.co.il/ , and the author of numerous books in Hebrew and English including the highly-acclaimed 'The Trail to Tranquility'. His translation of 'The Garden of Emuna', written by his rabbi and spiritual guide Rav Shalom Arush shlit’a, has become an international best seller. In addition, Rabbi Brody’s original Calming Waters album is an exquisite collection of his soul-healing flute melodies. He hosts the Lazer Beams podcast every Thursday at 7:00 p.m. Israel time on Israel National Radio.
