# There The Gemara notes that there is an apparent contradictionbetween two pesukim in Tehillim. On one hand we are told , the pasuk says that Hashem owns the world, as the Passuk statesyet, "לה' הארץ ומלואה" To Hashem belongs the earth and all that is in it (Tehillim 24:1), and at other pasuk describes how the same time we are told that the earth land was given to us: "השמים שמים לה' והארץ נתן לבני אדם" The heaven belongs to Hashem but the earth He has given to mankindmanking. Chazal reconcile this; explain that indeed, everything belongs to Hashem, but once a person recites a blessingbracha over a certain worldly pleasure, he acquires ownershipit. <ref> Gemara [[Brachot]] 35a</ref> Chazal , therefore , instituted a series of blessing [[brachot]] to be recited every morning, each blessing corresponding to another of the various worldly benefits and pleasures that one is granted in this world. <ref> Gemara [[Berachos]] 35a</ref># Many poskim rule that while reciting ברכות השחר[[Birkhot HaShachar]], the morning [[Berachos]], and while reciting blessing of praise or thanks, one does not need to stand. Others recommend standing. Some say that this only applies if it will not detract from one's concentration. <ref>פרמPri Megadim (Peticha LeHilchot [[Brachot]] #18 and M"ג פתיחה להל ברכות אות יחZ 432:3, פסח תלב משב"ז ס"ק גHalichot Shlomo ch. 20, הליכות שלמה פ"כ, תשובות והנהגות בTeshuvot VeHanhagot 2:לז37</ref># In Talmudic times each of the morning [[blessingsBirkhot HaShachar]] was were recited at the moment when the particular benefit for which it was composed occurred: One would open his eyes and recite the blessing פוקח עוריםPoke'ach Ivrim; when one would sit up he would say, מתיר אסורים[[Matir]] Asurim; etc. Nowadays, because of a concern of unclean hands when reciting the [[blessings]], as well as the prevalence of those without sufficient knowledge of Halacha, we recite all the [[BerachosBrachot]] at one time, after preparing oneself for Teffilah. <ref>שS"ע מוA 46:א1-ב2, ערה"ש מוAruch HaShulchan 46:ט9</ref># In three of the second to fourth [[BerachosBirkhot HaShachar]] of Bircas Hashachar, we thank Hashem for not making us a gentile non-Jew, who isn't obligated in any mitzvos, nor mitzvot or a slave who is limited in the Mitzvos mitzvot he performs, nor is obligated in. Men also recite a bracha thanking Hashem for not being created a woman who is not as obligated as men in certain Mitzvos. Thus we are expressing pride for all the mitzvos we performmitzvot. At this time, women also affirm their unique status in Judaism and recite SheAsani Kirsono.<ref>Tur and S"A 46:4</ref>
