Kabbalistic Concepts

The Best Deal

God doesn’t make deals, but we try to make deals with God all the time. For example, sometimes we’ll say, “I will pray three times a day and be a religious person if you will do this one thing for me, God.” Then when nothing appears to happen, we become upset and question why God isn’t manifesting what we want in our life, even though we are doing all of the “right” things.

The reason we aren’t getting what we want is because we are trying to make deals. In this world, the only deal is to be the very best human being that we can be. To achieve this level of enlightenment is the only task that God has given us to do. He wants us to wake in the morning and not only see the beauty of the world, but to marvel at how wonderful it is that we can see at all. This is the consciousness we are put on Earth to gain.
