I'm speaking about this on Shabbos, and I remembered this thread, can someone help me, exactly where to find it in Tanya?

Specifically, that Hashem recreates every second.
I answered this in PM, but realized it might benefit others so cross-posting here:

Hmm, blast from the past :)

Hard to recall what I had in mind 5 years ago, but my guess is that I was referring to these lines from Perek 2:

Quote
מעשה שמים וארץ שהוא יש מאין והוא פלא גדול יותר מקריעת ים סוף עד"מ שהוליך ה' את הים ברוח קדים עזה כל הלילה ויבקעו המים ונצבו כמו נד וכחומה ואילו הפסיק ה' את הרוח כרגע היו המים חוזרים וניגרים במורד כדרכם וטבעם ולא קמו כחומה בלי ספק אף שהטבע הזה במים גם כן נברא ומחודש יש מאין שהרי חומת אבנים נצבת מעצמה בלי רוח רק שטבע המים אינו כן וכ"ש וק"ו בבריאת יש מאין שהיא למעלה מהטבע והפלא ופלא יותר מקריעת ים סוף

Those aren't the exact אותיות that I used, but the idea that the the act of creating the natural world and all its laws constantly is a miracle, and a bigger miracle than creating the world for the first time.

The אותיות I used probably came from Tzvi Freeman article that I love (https://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/2809/jewish/The-Shushan-Files.htm)

Long read, but worth it :)

And what's the source in Midrash Tehillim.


Or, how do I get a hold of @Achas Veachas

מדרש תהלים on Tehillim 119:89
Quote
לכך נאמר לעולם ה' דברך נצב בשמים. מהו דברך נצב בשמים אי זהו דבר הנצב בשמים. אלא אמר הקב"ה על מה השמים עומדים על אותו דבר שאמרתי (בראשית א ו-ז) יהי רקיע בתוך המים. ויהי כן. וכתיב (תהלים לג ט) כי הוא אמר ויהי וגו'. אותו הדבר שאמר הוא עשה. לכך נאמר (שם) הוא צוה ויעמוד. בדבר ה' שמים נעשו ובאותו הדבר שברא אותן בו הם עומדים לעולם. לכך נאמר לעולם ה' דברך נצב בשמים.

Back when @Achas Veachas was around we almost had a shabbos at the Ohel.
I was sorta hoping to see you this past Shabbos... ;)

Ahem, I can hear you guys... :P

Well send him regards from the DDF family.
He's really needed to straighten out the election thread. :)
Sorry, I'm not going NEAR that thing...

Tech Talk / Re: Programming for Beginners

Did you do their online course or on campus? I know python basics (I too used DDMS for a project. A few years ago I built a python script to text me when DDMS had certain keywords like 'mistake' etc) but want to learn RoR to better understand my company's website. Would you recommend Flatiron?
I know this is from a while ago (I've been kinda missing lately :) )
I'm doing the online course (Learn-verified). Pretty happy with it. Let me know if it's still pertinent for you and if you want more info.

Feh! We make Kiddush? At 2? Shabbos Mevorchim, noch? SMH. This is worse than seeing intelligent people become Trump apologists.
Which part of "or later" didn't you understand :P

She is toxic. Noone can vote for her in good conscience.

You need to get out more...

The majority of Dems see Hillary as a corrupt politician. Corrupt politicians are nothing new, we've seen them before, America can survive a corrupt president. Trump on the other hand is seen by most Ds (and many Rs...) as downright dangerous to America...

I guess the less candidates the more focus there is on each one so it is tougher but at the same time you have to knock all 16 & he Eventually was running against the strongest 5..4..3..2..1 anyways.
Knocking all 16 wasn't so tough, most of them knocked themselves out without any help from the Donald.
All that time that the anti-trump vote was split between Cruz and Rubio is what gave Trump the nomination...

I understand he could have run as a D but why was it easier to run as R? The primaries weren't easy with 16 opponents....
Easier for him to run against 16 then it is to run against 1 or 2.

You think he would have won if the Rs would have coalesced around 1 or 2 solid ones early on?

Hilary ad. Is this supposed to make not want to vote for him?
I'm assuming this would work for the target audience of this ad, probably Bernie supporters...

I'm sorry, I don't understand that question
Funny, I didn't get it yesterday, but I think I'm starting to understand what he meant now.. :P
