I guess mivtzoyim is a maasedike way, since its to prepare the world for Moshiach...
and if we have in mind with every mitzva that we do that its all to bring Geula faster

another one!
During the early years of his nesius, the Rebbe told an avreich during yechidus:
"Every avreich should think each day before and after birchos hashachar about my father-in-law the Admor [Rayatz]." And as he spoke, the Rebbe burst into tears

From the diary of a Tomim, written during Tishrei, 5714/1953:
“Before we left to bring joy to Jews in other shuls, the Rebbe instructed each group to appoint a leader, who would make sure that no one went over the top or would upset the baalei batim. They would do whatever they could to make sure that any serious drinking would only occur when the group got back to 770 …

“During hakafos, the Rebbe stood on the shtender several times (after he had turned it over on its side) and danced joyfully.

“During hakafos someone wanted to give the Rebbe a handkerchief to wipe away his perspiration, but the Rebbe didn’t want to take it. The Rebbe later explained that this was because he wanted his perspiration to remain with him and not go to someone else.

“When this particular individual later went into the farbrengen, he was pushed by the crowd. The Rebbe remarked to him, ‘Let them squeeze out everything that isn’t appropriate from you, and they should push into you everything that you need….’”

hey, this is my 100th post! anyway, that's great! also, even if you learn w/ someone younger/less skilled than u it will still help you understand it in some way b/c just explaining it to someone else makes anything a lot clearer.

i don't know how you got to 285 posts in a month!! i guess i don't visit ct too often...

i think someone (with technical knowledge) should start a virtual farbrengen website. i guess kind of like a chat room, but like a farbrengen. u could log on whenever u need some inspiration.
(sortof like this thread :-) except w/ more than 3 ppl...)

Whats something I can do so that I remember every morning and jump out of bed with the though 'hey! Moshiach is coming today!' with renewed excitement every day. I mean, learning does renew it... but I usually don't remember all I learnt whan my alarm clock rings...

usually i can't even remember what day it is when my alarm clock rings!

put a big poster in your room that says 'what have u done to bring moshiach today? or something of that effect.

if u know how, make your alarm clock wake u up with 'moshaich is coming TODAY!' that should remind u :-)

me neither! so- i ask the same question as why: what can i do so that every morning, as soon as i open my eyes, even before modeh ani, i think about moshiach? thats actually a pretty high level- to be mamsh living moshiach every second. i think the answer would be to live moshiach in ur sleep!

why, thats jsut asking for trouble, cuz here we have mods, so if there are any trolls, we can just ask for them to be banned. if ur making it like chat, then its a risk.

on my phone u can make voice memos and use them as a ring tone. so i can record any music or whatever and use it, although it's pretty bad quality

i think there's another thread discussing right tones on ct--but last i heard there weren't any jewish sites

i guess you'd have to have mods too. making it like a chat makes it a little more 'real' but i guess it's harder to control too
