comment Oops, you said Boruch Atta Hashem Elokeinu in error
Rav Moshe Levi writes in Birkat Hashem that even if you said Elokenu you can still finish that Pasuk (his source is Haye Adam Kelal 5) however he writes that even if you said that Pasuk you should still say Baruch Kevod Shem Malchuto because it's not a full Pasuk.

comment Why Bless on Gum if some say not to
My question is why we don't apply Safek Berachot Lehakel, not why we bless because of taste.\

comment How to implement the Mesilas Yesharim
Not that my opinion means anything to you but I don't think it is worth trying both at once. My father always says a Derash on the Gemara in Sukka "Tafasta Merube Lo Tafasta" don't take too much on at once.

comment Why is Maseches Shekalim in Daf Yomi
@DoubleAA tell you the truth I didn't like the Derash. There is a very interesting Dibrot Moshe in Kidushin that might contradict this Derash as well.

comment Why is Maseches Shekalim in Daf Yomi
I heard a Derash yesterday that it is because if someone learns through all of Shas and get's to Shamayim they are going to ask him "why didn't you learn Yerushalmi"? So he can answer "I learned Shekalim" at least one Masechet.

comment When did the Kaf HaHayyim first see the Aruch HaShulchan and the Mishnah Berurah?
If you have the patience you can go on Hebrewbooks and search in "Mishna Berura" or "aruch Hashulchan" in every volume of KAf Hahaim.

comment Does the Reishis Chachma apply to our generation?
I always understood that there are different levels of Musar. There is basic Musar from Orhot Sadikim Hobot Halevavot etc. and then once one reaches the levels of Hassidut he starts learning Reshit Hochma.
