Making Our Ways to Hashem Yisburach - A parable


This is a beautiful parable which I didn't do justice to in writing it up, for the time being here it is in a skeleton form, maybe one day I or someone else will merit to develop it and write it up properly:

What is involved

A king sent a message to one of His subjects commanding him to come to the palace. The message explained that the palace was under siege and was only accessible by a certain route, which the message described partially and vaguely. Upon receiving the message, the subject embarked to find the route and get to the palace. He had to wander about a great deal until he finally found the correct way. Along the way he was attacked by a swarm of bees and wild animals. Once while scaling a cliff he fell and nearly killed himself.

When he finally made it to the king, the king received him with love and affection. The king explained to him how his adventurous expedition had in reality saved the kingdom. At first, when he was blundering about the enemy feared that he had mapped out all their positions, and retreated from their attacking positions. The swarm of bees that he had instigated, proceeded to attack the enemy, and when he fell from the cliff he caused an avalanche which caused great destruction to the enemy army.

The upshot is that by making his way to the king as he was commanded, this person brought down the entire army that was attacking the king. And so it is with our devotions and seeking out HY, everything we undergo has enormous ramifications that we may know nothing of, and as we get closer to HY so too we liberate the forces of good and demolish all the forces of evil.
