Videos under 'Stop Me from Falling'
A fellow once called me up that he was working with a young man who had an irrepressible desire for a particular woman, a married woman. He couldn't help it, he constantly would see her, wherever it may be, and he couldn't stop thinking about her. He couldn't get her out of his mind. He was a frum (religious) boy, he was in yeshivah doing well up until this point, but these thoughts were consuming him. He constantly thought about her, day in and day out. And this fellow called me up, what eitzah (advice) can you give him?
The Yetzer Hara makes it look so tempting it's almost impossible to say no. But don't fall for his evil tricks--it's all empty air! He is just looking to trap you and destroy you! A small clip from “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” 1968 Children's Movie
Chazal say that if we are tempted by sin we should remind ourselves of the day of death...
When unhealthy desire strikes, remember the day of death. One day, the curtain will fall on us all.
The Chosid, Rav Pinchas Rosenbaum Zatza"l, suffered from cancer for many years. This video was taken a few days before he was niftar. In the video he can be seen crying tears to the beautiful words of Shir Hashirim, knowing that his days were literally numbered. Imagine we knew we had only days left to live c"v. Would we consider our petty desires important? Let us turn all our love towards Hashem, in whose embrace our souls will reside for all eternity! May this clip be a blessing to his memory.
