The Subconscoius of Prayer, Torah Study and Target Practice

Every competitive target shooter experiences “perfect” shots. The physical elements of the shot were perfectly executed, and the paper reveals a dead centered X. To the shooter, the shot felt as if it fired itself.

As you may know, Simchat Torah recently passed, and we’ve begun reading the Torah anew. I sometimes (well, ok, often) miss reading the week’s portion but I am good about listening to the Chabad .mp3 lectures. I particularly like the lectures by Elimelech Silberberg and Moshe New. I often listen while I’m talking a walk, or even during a shooting training session.

I’m amazed at how a year later, something in the lecture will trigger my ability to remember where and when I listened to the lecture last time. Often I can remember what was going on in my life at the time.

That makes me think that much of Torah learning has to seep into the subconscious. Its simply impossible
