If you truly understood what you are and where you stand, how would you feel about yourself? Would you be elated? Utterly inadequate? Both at once? A mystical guide to self-knowledge as the ultimate antidote to depression.

I love the videos in general. The intro was great, as someone commented. And as another commented from houston, this could've been a whole lot better. It was a bit confusing, and not helped by the half questions from Michael and the interrupted (or not even interrupted but not fully connected), answers.
But I almost got something amazingly powerful from this. Do it over!!

It is amazing how contradictions work towards advancing. We really are made in His image. Only in Him adverse forces can coexist.
PS:There is distortion between sound and the speed of image. I do not know the technical term.Please correct it.

Michael great ? and follow up I need clarification
Rabbi Freeman was saying that we need to have a map of where we r and where we r going. Michael said maybe it is better to be depressed because of a failure for achieving a false goal. It makes sense that if a person bases his achievements on a superficial goal then the original map theory can not really be used. Is that correct? Or did I miss the point?

Messages: Kabbalah of Self-Knowledge.
One of the few things I miss most after leaveing the diaspera is the true joy of studying Tanya with Rabbi Freeman and watching Messages on Sunday nights! If possible please post as available on your exvellent website!
We each ask of G-d that we be a worthy vessel for His will. Sometimes He lifts us up high to achieve His purpose. Sometimes we are lowered and again G-d willing. to achieve His purpose. To be worthy of His tasks we must learn to put aside our own ego. That sense of 'I'. The battle between the animal and G-dly soul. If our journey is righteous and it is G-d's will. should this not be enough for us? Are the worldly rewards in this life so necessary? Is it not enough that each day He returns our spirit to us? Blesses us wth the goodness of family and friends and loves us each as His first born children?
