Do you run from pain and difficulty or do you embrace it?
We disregard darkness. We disregard difficulty. We just want to get through it and leave it behind. We think it is a situation to be avoided, to be pushed aside as quickly as possible. But when we push away the pain we are missing out on the blessing.
The truth is that it’s not life’s situations that create joy and fulfillment. It’s our ability to see the Light in every situation that creates it. Anytime we blame someone or something or feel pain, it is simply for one reason - we are not seeing the Light in the circumstances. Once we can shift our consciousness, we can leave pain and suffering behind. For good. Because we know that every single situation in our life is from the Light of the Creator.
On Pesach, we have the gift of shifting ourselves completely – of being born anew into a new consciousness where we see, feel, and know that the Light of the Creator is in every situation.
The consciousness of Egypt was that of getting through the darkness, instead ofembracing it. They used their tools, they made their connections, yet they did not see the Light of the Creator in their difficulties. On Pesach, we can leave our own personal Egypt consciousness, gaining the ability to experience the Light in the darkness. If we continue to go through life with this Egypt consciousness, pushing away those moments of difficulty trying to get rid of them quickly, we will never come to know the greatest Light.
We each have a choice: Do we experience thepain, knowing that there is great Light in it if we are able to transform it, or do we try to get rid of the pain as quickly as possible?
During this 24 hour window in time, we can connect to the incredible gift given to us to start seeing what exists in difficulty, and to know what is in the darkness. And as we shift our consciousness to begin to see the Light of the Creator in every situation, knowing that every moment of every challenge is actually a blessing, we reveal enormous amounts of Light… and leave pain and suffering behind.
