We are summoned to fix what went wrong in our psyche, body and emotions as a result of the sin. Questions such as ‘Who am I’ and ‘What is the purpose of this life’ can either pose instability or awaken us to higher understanding and acceptance. Dedicated Torah study, emuna strengthening and prayer are the spiritual backbones and wean us back to wholesomeness. The commandments are opportunities to connect to higher states of consciousness and tap into our higher potential. However many times we resist the messages G-d sends us.
Often the messages come in the form of bitter elixir met by defense and denial. Although difficult to accept, G-d may hand over our life’s lessons through distressful circumstances and may transmit a message that requires that we change certain aspects in life. The ego does not allow us to readily accept this is Divine sent nonetheless we need to embrace the message and make the necessary changes to heal.
