Appreciate Accomplishments

Filed under: Blog Torah — Reb Moshe @ 8:25 am

Every day we look at ourselves in the mirror and think, “How can something, someone be both so low and so high?” One minute I am flying with my soul so close to Hashem and the next minute, I am in a pit of hell drowning. We ask, “Who am I really? I have come so far but I am still so far.” Life is like climbing Mount Everest. If you climb to much elevation in one day, your body can’t handle the change. At each peak, we must stop and evaluate our spiritual and physical health. At the same time, we don’t appreciate that we reach this new peak in our climb. Therefore, we either fall from the cliff or attempt to climb too quickly even higher. Rather, we need to stop at each peak, find the joy in our accomplishments and then we will climb the mountain. Har Sinai was a small mountain but it still took Moses 40 days. This was because he paced himself and was happy at every days accomplishment.
