Yitzchak greeted Joey and asked him how he is doing?
YOU KNOW WE ARE HAVING TO ROAD TRIP SOON, GOT TO SAY I AM EYE TO THE ROAD EXCITED!
I explained that right after the call, Joey and I would be driving to CT and staying there for a few days, where we will swim, hike, run, BBQ, basically have a mini-vacation. Yitzchak explained that he could spend some extra time talking today if we could manage it, but I explained that I didn’t want to run over much, as we were aiming to get there by lunch time, and were on a bit of a tight-ish schedule. Yitzchak asked Joey what part of the trip he was most excited for?
BANTER WITH YOU RULES BUT I AGREE WE NEED TO HIT THE ROAD AT TEN. I’M SUPREMELY INTO HIKING AND SWIMMING.
Yitzchak commented that its nice to go somewhere that offers both water and hiking. Y also brought up our last conversation about abundance, and hoped we would continue it.
YOU KNOW YOU HAVE TO TRY TO APPRECIATE THE THINGS YOU HAVE IN ORDER TO GAIN MORE ABUNDANTLY.
Yitzchak explained that the great sages of Israel also believed this, thinking that a person who is happy with their life is one who has abundance. Asked if Joey was one of those great sages?
YOU KNOW THAT I’M NOT SOME GREEDY GLUTTON BUT I’M OPEN TO GAINING HAPPINESS WITH LIFE AMD TODAY’S COOL BLESSINGS.
Yitzchak recalled that over the past two sessions, Joey said that some ways to abundance are to try hard, to pray, to watch/allow it to happen, and to appreciate the things we have. Any other ways to abundance?
YOU KNOW THIS…MAYBE HAVING WONDERFUL PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE IS THE PATH TO HAPPINESS AND ABUNDANCE.
How do you mean? Why is that?
YOU KNOW THAT I’M TOO PARTIAL TO THE THEORY THAT PEOPLE ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN MATERIAL POSSESSIONS.
So if you have wonderful people in your life then you can have abundance, is that what you mean?
YOU KNOW THAT WONDERFUL FRIENDSHIP HAS MORE VALUE AND CANNOT BE BOUGHT IN THE STORES.
I asked Joey if he had any final thoughts or parting words for the rabbi?
I WOULDN’T TRADE ANY OF MY TEACHERS AND MENTORS FOR ALL OF THE RICHES IN THE WORLD.
