The Kosher Ego

Do good with all your ego.

Say, “I need to make this happen.”

Say, “I have to see this done.”

Not only is this “I” permissible, it is crucial to your mission in life.

So when does ego become evil?

When it believes it is your mission in life.

Terumah 5734:2; Torat Menachem 5752, vol. 1, p. 241; Likkutei Sichot, vol. 33, p. 118.

Weekly Video Program
For everything there is a season, a time for every matter under the heaven: A time to give birth and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to uproot that which is planted. A time to kill and a time to heal; a time to break and a time to build. A time to weep and a time to laugh; a time of wailing and a time of dancing. A time to cast stones and a time to gather stones; a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing. A time to seek and a time to lose; a time to keep and a time to cast away. A time to rend and a time to sew; a time to be silent and a time to speak. A time to love and a time to hate; a time for war and a time for peace...
— Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Parshah
Balak


What Balak is about: a frightened king and a greedy prophet, a sword-wielding angel and  a talking donkey, curses transformed into blessings and a messianic prophecy,  a plague provoked by pagan debauchery and a zealot who saves the day.

But also: the connection between Balaam and Laban, the Moabite ancestry of Moshiach, the duality of Jacob and Israel, the evolution of pleasure and the offal-worship of Peor.
