Don’t Lose Hope In His Mercy

Fulfillment Can Only Be Spritual If you have built your desires of bestowal (the right line) and they are ready for work, then you no longer try to erase the problems coming to you from the left line because you realize that they come to you for a reason. You know that you have to rise above them in order to climb the mountain to the King’s palace (as in the example from Item 139 of “Introduction to Talmud Eser Sefirot”).

You are glad that you are having these problems because you know they are given to you to help you ascend. Usually, these problems are very diverse, coming from different sources and happening in different areas. The most important thing is not to lose sight of their common source, the Creator, as it is written, “Even if a sharp sword were placed by your throat, don’t lose hope in His Mercy.”

In response to that sword, feel His unity; feel that there is none else besides Him, and that He is good and does good. The guillotine will keep coming down, but it will stop at the last moment!

It will break, and be followed by mercy, because according to the law, when the guillotine breaks, the convicted is pardoned.
