Please comment Garden of Emuna This book is interesting. All that stuff on this blog about philosophical reasoning to come to Judaism and Torah … Rabbi Arush would say stay away because it detracts from emuna. This book categorically explains what it means to live with perfect emuna with a high level picture, then discussing free will, then discussing individual situations from those who are not religious to those who are not Jewish to those who are in jail or have gambling addictions.
The rest is applications of the principle applied to different situations. The constant trust in the Creator throughout his day to day struggles and events made him quite happy and he saw only good. His religious friend asked how it could be that he, the religious person did not have this level of joy in his life, but his not religious friend does! Answer: Torah and mitzvos are a vehicle to have emuna and that is the purpose of life.
One can have emunah without Torah and do mitzvos without really having emunah … the taste of wine without the cup, or the cup without the wine. The man who was not religious but had emunah would eventually get tired of taking his own path and use the company car.
Living a life of emunah means you have no doubts who is in control. That was meant to happen. However, in the future, you make changes and do what you should. This is the free will dichotomy of a Creator who knows what will happen, but we still have the choice. This is how someone with trust in a Creator views the world. I am honestly not on this level of belief. However, this is still the goal and still something to be worked on constantly.
With emuna, there is no anger. With emuna, there is no pain. There is growth and connection back to the source. Those who think otherwise are constantly in a state of fear and anxiety because a disease or mishap can happen at any time beyond their control. When you ask for emunah and ask for things on a spiritual level he says that such things are almost always granted. Take a look at lives of lottery winners — winning often shatters their relationships and they find themselves in debt often with unpaid tax bills.
While the book is based very much on Jewish sources, the concepts are universal as they must be. Related Posts.
