The Joy Of The Commandment

239A commandment is an opportunity to do something to please the Creator. And the more difficult the condition, which is not felt in my egoism as pleasant, the better. After all, this means that I do not have an egoistic motivation in this action but act against my egoism.

Then it is really called a commandment, that is, I carry out the Creator’s instruction to draw closer to Him despite the resistance of my egoism.

The joy of the commandment is that I can take action against my desire to enjoy more and more each time. It may be a small achievement, but the main thing is that it should be about unification. All I need is connection with friends and the daily lesson: these are two tools for getting closer to the Creator.

If I fulfill both the first and the second condition every day, then the day was not wasted. This is how you need to consider your life, and then it will flow meaningfully and bring a special result.
From the 1st part of the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 11/17/20, “Work With Faith Above Reason”
