THE JOY OF COMPLAINING
Don’t worry if every time you walk into a Kabbalah Centre you immediately start judging all the people around you. Don’t worry if you are driving to the Centre and you feel like yelling at someone there, or complaining. Don’t sweat all that dialogue that goes on inside your head before you arrive at the Centre where you are launching a tirade of complaints at your teacher. It’s just the opponent amping up his influence because you are entering a place of true Light.
All those negative feelings will turn into blessings the moment you recognize it’s really the opponent that’s causing you to judge others. It’s absolutely NOT YOU. It’s the adversary stirring up your complaints about students, about your mentors, your teachers, the Centre, life and even God Himself.
This is actually a good sign.
It means the Opponent is worried sick about you. It means he is busy with you. If you did not have something powerful and profound to contribute to this world, he would leave you be. Make no mistake about it. You’d walk around in a carefree, judgment free, happy-go-lucky state of mind.
But you’d also have zero impact upon the world.
Those of us who are ready to blast someone before we come to the Centre, those of us who whine about the late night connections, the time delays, and everything else we can find to complain about, we have the ability to bring about significant change in our life, and in turn, in the world.
What we do each moment of our day impacts the Middle East, Africa, America, South America, the Far East and every single soul on earth.
If we want to remove darkness from the world, we need to remove it from ourselves first. That will then diminish the global darkness.
You cannot remove darkness from yourself or the world, if you don’t have it. You can only repair that you possess.
Therefore, the Light allows the Opponent to blanket you in darkness. This means the Light already knows that you have the fortitude of character and deep inner power to triumph over this darkness.
How do you conquer the darkness on a practical level?
Simply by making the separation between the opponent inside your head and the True You.
The moment you have that awareness, the moment that you know all your complaints and judgment are really just the Opponent, that’s when the Opponent is busted. The negativity then busts apart unleashing bright fountain of sparks of Light.
Now the world shines brighter.
All because of you.
