Change is easy after we make a real decision. The difference between a real decision and the "decisions" that most people make is that a real decision is like an incision - it cuts us off from everything that stands in its way.
When someone really decides to stop smoking he is never tempted to smoke again - not because has "decided" that he prefers not to smoke but because he has changed the kind of person he is. Its the difference between: "I don't want to smoke" and "I'm a non-smoker - I'll never smoke again - I'm not even interested."
Faith in G-d is also decision. Once you DECIDE to believe, you completely burn your bridges with sadness, fear and doubt.
May you be inscribed and sealed in the Good Book of Life,
