A person who has truly become spiritual had to work very hard for it by overcoming many hurdles and tests that push us as human beings to become more involved in the spiritual side of things. The Rav used to say that it is very simple to flow with the tide when things are going our way, but the way that we respond and react when things are not going our way is what builds our spirituality. The difficulties and pressure we encounter are what push us to do, to make, to move forward, to grow, and to become more than we are today.
True spirituality is the result of the tests that we undergo throughout life to refine ourselves and to become closer to the Lightforce. We learn to have tolerance. We learn not to be arrogant, not to be egotistical. We learn to love and share.
But the only way we can learn is by deciding that when we see the door opening, we won’t close it, and instead of looking for ways to “escape” our reality, we look for the lesson within it.
