The law of the garbage truck

Thursday, 5th December 2013


One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport. We were driving along when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! 

The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us. My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. My taxi driver was really friendly so I asked, 'Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!' 

This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, 'The Law of the Garbage Truck'. 

He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they'll dump it on you. 

Don't take it personally, just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don't take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets. 


I wanted to change the world

Wednesday, 27th November 2013


When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world. 

I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation. 

When I found I couldn't change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn't change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family. 

Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world. 


One extra Mitzvah

Thursday, 21st November 2013


Rabbi Israel Abuhatzeira, otherwise known as the Baba Sali, was once travelling by taxi from his home town in Netivot to Tel Aviv to deliver a lecture.  En route they were driving behind a Coca Cola lorry and Baba Sali asked the taxi driver to stop the Coca Cola lorry as he wanted a drink.  As is customary, one doesn't question great Rabbis, so the driver overtook the lorry and waved and slowed it down to a stop whereupon the taxi driver asked for a drink for his special passenger.  Understandably the lorry driver was very angry that he had been stopped on his journey to supply a drink for a thirsty road-user and jumped back into his cab to continue his journey.

The taxi driver and his holy passenger continued to their destination where Baba Sali duly delivered his lecture.

On the return journey however, they came across a a Coca Cola lorry that had been turned upside down in a serious traffic accident and unfortunately the driver did not survive.  The taxi driver then questioned Baba Sali in utter disbelief:
Did you curse him just because he didn't give you a drink???????
Said Baba sali: "absolutely not"!
As we were driving behind the lorry, I noticed the Malach Hamaves (Angel of death) hovering over the lorry.
To try and save him, I wanted to give him the extra zechus (merit) to try and tip the balance in his favour to avoid him succumbing.

The lesson here is simple yet powerful!
We never know when we may need that ONE extra zechus to carry us through and to avoid catastrophe.
It is important to look at our every action as if this may be "that one" extra mitzvah or extra act of kindness that WE need for ourselves.

The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small,  uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for G-d to rescue him, and every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming.

Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him from the elements and to store his few possessions. But then one day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, the smoke rolling up to the sky.

The worst had happened; everything was lost. He was stunned with grief and anger. "G-d, how could you do this to me!" he cried. Early the next day, however, he was awakened by the sound of a ship that was approaching the island. It had come to rescue him. "How did you know I was here?" asked the weary man of his rescuers. "We saw your smoke signal," they replied.

It is easy to get discouraged when things are going badly. But we shouldn't lose heart, because G-d is at work in our lives, even in the midst of pain and suffering. Remember, next time your little hut is burning to the ground--it just may be a smoke signal that summons.
