    The Power of Gratitude in an Ungrateful World

    28:14

    We are all seeking ways to become healthier and more productive human beings; searching for the key to loving and sustainable relationships, answers to finding deeper purpose in our lives, and methods to help us live up to our full potential. Often, the secret to achieving such fulfillment is right in front of us, presented to us by our daily life and society. We only need to notice and tap into these messages surrounding us.  Thanksgiving offers us one such vital lesson. It's a good time to ask ourselves: is this holiday anything more than simply turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie? Sitting around with family and football and food... While this all sounds fun and delicious, Thanksgiving presents us with something far far more.   Please join Rabbi Simon Jacobson to discuss the powerful message of Thanksgiving, a message that provides us with a most necessary and fundamental tool in life: the tool of gratitude. Thankfulness is far more than being nice and civil. It carries the secret to personal and global transformation. Gratitude is the antidote to the very core of ego and self interest; it manifests the essential purpose of existence: To illuminate a dark universe, to refine a hostile environment, to bring goodness and kindness to a unkind culture and gratefulness to an ungrateful world.

Please join Rabbi Simon Jacobson for a fascinating discussion on the beauty and potential of our dreams. Discover how dreams are there to give us a glimpse, a peek behind the curtain, into our inner subconscious and superconscious psyches. Learn about a dimension of yourself that often remains concealed beneath the surface level.

    The Soul of Veterans Day

    34:38

    What is the true meaning of Veterans Day? What are we celebrating and what personal lessons can we learn from this day? One of the most powerful and beautiful things a human being can do is put their self interests aside, their selfish needs and ego on hold, to protect and help another. Our veterans have – and continue to – put their lives on the line for something bigger than themselves. They sacrifice themselves for us. It's now time to ask ourselves: Where do we stand in servicing others? What are we contributing to the world? This is the soul, the very essence, of Veterans Day. Please join Rabbi Simon Jacobson for this special presentation honoring our veterans, and the larger lessons we learn from them: How to access the very essence and purpose for which we were sent to this earth -- to commit our lives to service, to give, protect and sacrifice ourselves for the good of others. Indeed, serving a higher cause than ourselves is what makes the self greater than it could ever be on its own. In these polarizing times, we are in dire need of a message and attitude that transcends our different opinions and viewpoints and reminds us what lies at the heart of our country -- that our higher calling is more powerful than our differences.

    Why Was the World Created?

    30:51

    There is a simple and fundamental truth that many of us don't always follow: The why must always precede the what. Meaning -- before you do something, you must have a reason as to why you are doing it. Yet many of us are stuck in our habits and routines and often the what ends up preceding the why. We first act and only then do we look for a reason for our actions. We do, and then wonder why we just did that. In life it is so critical that the function precede the form. First, understand the purpose and meaning behind every action, and only then can you act on it. This defines your entire life -- Are you simply a victim of circumstances or are you controlling your life, being proactive and mindful of your actions? Which brings us to the most important question of all time: Why was the world created? Once we begin to understand the why, we can then begin to understand the what - what is expected of us, what is our purpose here and what can we do about it? Join Rabbi Simon Jacobson for a fascinating glimpse into the very dynamics of how we work. Learn the secret as to why the world was created, and go even deeper to explore why you - yes, specifically you - were created.

    Mission Statement Vs. Vision Statement

    37:30

    Do you have a picture of what you want your life -- and the world around you -- to look like in the future? And does that drive the details of your life activities? Or is your life just random occurrences and haphazard events that keep you trekking along blindly -- a life driven by the immediate demands and needs, with no larger plan and long-term goals directing you to a greater destination?  The vital importance for a vision and mission in life cannot be overstated. Take any entity or organization. The first step in a successful and efficient business is establishing a mission and vision statement. No enterprise can succeed or function without one. And yet when it comes to our personal lives many of us never gave the idea much thought. Not due to our own fault; we simply were never taught the necessity of having a vision and mission in life, let alone -- implementing it. We often just allow life to happen to us, instead of allowing ourselves to direct our life's trajectory. We are reactive instead of proactive. Please join Rabbi Simon Jacobson for this essential and life changing discussion on developing the focal point that connects all the spokes of your life. Discover the necessity -- and even more so the power -- of a personal mission and vision statement. Learn how to craft a mission and vision, and how to actualize it in your life -- realizing your greatest dreams and aspirations.

    Deciphering the Divine Sparks

    36:43

    Do you ever feel like your life is fragmented, composed of so many disjointed pieces, and lacking a common thread connecting them all? These disconnects begin to accumulate and in time become overwhelming as they tug at you and your psyche, pulling you in so many directions. Is there more to life than random occurrences and haphazard events? You may be surprised to hear this, but kabbalists and mystics address this fundamental question with a beautiful and elegant concept called The Divine Sparks. Each one of us is a book - or a musical symphony - and at birth all the different pieces and moving parts of our lives have been scattered, like torn pages of a book - or individual musical notes - and we are tasked with the mission to uncover and discover these sparks, these spiritual opportunities in everything we do. Whether it be in our personal lives, our relationships, our leisure or our work, our calling is to collect every spark and piece them together like a jigsaw puzzle - finding the deeper meaning and purpose within each fragmented piece as part of a larger picture. And only then will we witness and experience what will emerge - a unique and beautiful narrative of our lives, the harmony within diversity. Join Rabbi Jacobson for a fascinating discussion on how to find that elusive unity within -- a unity that connects the multitude of details in your daily life -- and begin to understand your life in a completely new way.

    Your Thoughts CAN Create Your Reality

    29:34

    How much control do you have over your life? Conventional thinking — and in many ways, the prevalent current view — is that most of our lives are determined by circumstances out of our control. If one was born into a dysfunctional home or experienced trauma, for instance, then they will most likely have difficulties with trust and relationships. If one grew up in a toxic and unhealthy environment, that will shape their destiny. This deterministic view is quite fatalistic and frankly downright pessimistic and depressing. Are we indeed simply defined by cause and effect? Or do we have the power to transcend our circumstances? Can we create a better reality than the “hand” we were dealt? To determine whether we are – or we are not – a victim and product of our circumstances, we must first understand and define: Who am I essentially at my core, what makes me tick and what potential and inner resources do I contain? Please join Rabbi Jacobson for this important pre-Rosh Hashana talk and discover new vistas of your soul, that when tapped, go beyond the usual cause and effect forces of life. Learn how your mind and mindset have the strength to change the course of your future; how your thoughts generate energy and chemicals that can shape your destiny. And that even if you can’t control events around you, your mind and attitude can control your ability to navigate even the most difficult challenges.
