The Process Hi. It's great to be back with you. In level 2 we learned how our tikkun is the process by which we reveal the unique Light that's in our soul. And although this process may be difficult and challenging at times, it's the way to connect with endless fulfillment. In level 3, we saw how our opponent tries to sabotage this process through logical, limited and reactive thoughts. And through the fear of loss, of pain, and of discomfort. Now, let me ask you a question. If you knew that your check was coming in on Monday, would you be scared of the bills on Tuesday? If you knew you were about to meet your other half in a month, would you do something stupid and crazy tonight? What did we learn? We see that the hardship and a lot of pain is from us not seeing that the challenge we are facing now is part of a process that will eventually lead us to goodness. Rav Ashlag, the founder of the Kabbalah Center in 1922 teaches us a beautiful lesson. He says, "Compare a newborn calf and a newborn human baby." The calf will straight away walk, how to feed himself, has survival instincts to keep him away from danger. A baby, totally helpless. willl run right into the fire, cannot feed himself, let alone walk. If you were to look at those two beings, without any other information, who would you say is the most evolved, influential one of them? And yet we know, that the baby will end up growing eventually into a powerful, discerning, intelligent, influential being. Let me give you another example to drive the point home. If you were to take an unripe green banana, and you tasted it, and it tastes sour, would you judge it and say "It's such a bad fruit?" No! You know that it's just not ripe. You would wait a few more days, a week, until it eventually becomes sweet. Rav Ashlag teaches us something so beautiful. Really what we often perceive as bitter, as painful, and difficult, and sour in our lives, is only an indication that we are at the beginning of a process that eventually will reveal goodness and sweetness. Growing means finding ourselves in such situations. Where for example, we're going through a painful breakup or a project gets refused or we lose that beautiful home. What we want to achieve, is to begin viewing those challenging, difficult situations as part of a growth process. And most importantly, in those situations, not to judge yourself, judge others, or judge the situation. But understand that it's part of a process of growth towards sweetness. In the next Mission, we're going to learn how to view our lives and our situations as processes. And how to embrace them and grow together with them.
