The same is true in spirituality; I cannot just lie there and wait to be lifted up to final correction (Gmar Tikkun) along with my bed.
It doesn’t happen that way. Correction occurs only through our efforts, and efforts are measured by the feeling of suffering, the force of resistance. So, we are talking about two destroyers, corporeal obstacles and spiritual obstacles, that interfere with our progress.
Corporeal obstacles are problems of this world: in the family, at work, with health. And spiritual obstacles are hidden inside them. We cannot dig deeply into obstacles, but we must clarify both of them in order to see how much they direct us toward the goal.
And if I focus more precisely on the goal internally, then I will see how obstacles begin to change because they come from the Creator. And if before I felt corporeal obstacles and it seemed that I could not do anything about them, now, due to my attitude to the goal, I can eliminate them. Problems in the family, with children, and at work will disappear; everything will turn into spiritual problems.
