REAL DEALS

[55a bottom] Gemarah: If an appointment is made through a ‘Kinyan Sudar’ (acquisition through a handkerchief) this “Chalipin” undoubtedly signifies the appointer/seller’s approval.
R’ Rosner explaining RambaM: The action itself is not a formal sale, but it is inherently reflective and a concretization of the owner’s Daas (intention), as a universal Kinyan [just like by a marriage, a groom has witnesses testifying to his document’s validity, but he still picks up a pen to show that this contract is completely authentic].

D-E-ep Thoughts: Hashem always knows our true and ultimate intentions. When we simply ‘go through the motions,’ we do not acquire the same (if any) reward. If we constantly fan our egotistical flames while trying to subserviate ourselves to G-d or others, we will burn ourselves up from the inside out. We must be able to dive in to the deep end and give everything we do our all. Make it Real, to Seal the Deal.
