The love unconditional - The flow of energy that opens us to the world

Use Google Translate for your language

Being an ish chesed (a man of kindness)

One of the main goals of Judaism is to help man to improve themselves spiritually for it to become an ish chesed, a man of kindness. Not surprisingly, therefore, that the first Jewish patriarch, Abraham, personifies Sefirah, the Divine attribute of chesed - kindness, generosity and boundless love.

Generous and selfless, Abraham was always concerned with the welfare of others, respecting and loving all human beings and surrounding them acts of kindness and generosity.

Hospitable, the first Jew used his wealth to accommodate the travelers, the doors of his tent was always open to all those who went there. Anyone, angel, beggar or even idolatrous, could come into your home and eat at your desk, or relax in one of their tents. Abraham also shared with others his wisdom and knowledge. To save someone else's suffering and death, did not hesitate to take the necessary, even risking their own lives. Abraham is the paradigm of the Jewish ideal - kind with Gd and with men, the Talmud teaches that anyone who has compassion for others certainly descended from the patriarch.

In Kabbalah, the "Sefirah of Chesed", symbolized by Abraham, represents kindness, altruism, sharing, give unconditional love. It is the flow of energy that opens us to the world and makes us reach out to others. In Hebrew, the word that means "love" is "ohev" and comes from Ha'v' - "Give". True love, Judaism teaches, consists of acts of giving and kindness.

AMO A FRASE MÁGICA
Amo a frase mágica
E envolvente
Que faz a todos
Menos tristes
Apesar do pesar
Que deixa a quem
A lê surpreso comovido
Quem me ensinou
Foi o sonho sentido
Eu me amo
Amor
Eu os amo
Frase que leva à paixão
Frase que transforma a vida
Numa centelha multicolorida
Frase que torna qualquer ser
Num ser de exceção
Frase que todos os dias
Vem me comover
Envolver
Embalar
Tranqüilizar
Dormir
Sonhar
Com
Amor incondicional
Eu os amo eu os amo eu os amo nunca lhes direi quanto

Creed - Poetry Shaul Tchernichovsky

Laugh, laugh at all my dreams!
What dream will come true!
I laughed because I believe in the men,
And I believe in you (Adelle *)

My soul is also seeking a freedom,
That does not exchange for golden calves.
Because I still believe in men,
And in their spirit strong and courageous.

And I believe in the future (with you my love *)
That still distant, it will come
When other nations bless
And peace at last fill the earth.

(* Forming part of the poetry by me to you, my great love)
