Happiness: Psalm 84:5


Ashrei yoshvei vetecha od y’hal’luchah sela
Happy are the God-house dwellers, they continue to praise

When we are aware that God is the landlord of the entire universe in which we live, and when we activate that energy and live from that place inside ourselves, then we are full to overflowing of praise. We are then able to begin to approach the magical elixir of happiness. It’s all about being and living in God’s house.

Another teaching in the name of Rabbi Shefa Gold in the name of Reb Zalman z’l is that underneath all our anxiety there is a place of joy of our true authentic self. These words are about helping us to find that inside place of happiness. The ashrei place of inner joy.
