Gaining Control

Mastering others is strength. Mastering yourself is true power.

Lao Tzu

Sweetest friends! We live in a world where people try to control others. Spouses, children, students, employees etc.

G-d's way is to learn how to control YOURSELF! This is much more rewarding than controlling others.

Once one learns to control himself he can rise to a position of power. It was only after Yosef showed that he could control himself [and he didn't succumb to the passes of Aishes Potiphar] that he could rule over others and become second to the King. However, the primary area where one must wield power is over himself.

Aizehu gibbor? Hakoveish es yitzro!!

[See Shiurei Daas of Rav Bloch Ztz"l in his essay on Malchus where this idea is expanded upon.]

Love and blessings!
