Know the Enemy
you are hit with an onslaught of lust which drives you to the edge,
and then you discover that it is your itzy bitzy nerd neighbor who is
doing voodoo and all types of black magic on you GF. You would no
longer feel so helplessly overcome and inundated, you would take it
in stride and you wouldn't allow yourself to be knocked out of
control into the degradation of bodily desires simply because some
imbecile wishes your downfall. To a certain decree many of our trials
and tribulations are instigated by lowly evil spiritual forces that
seek our detriment. Big tzadikim would be very aware of who and what
was confronting them and would name them aloud and battle them
precisely with holy incantations and so forth. This is something we
can't even begin to do, even if we would get lucky here and there,
that would just open us up GF to much worse GF. Even still we must
bear this in mind, that lowliness of the forces seeking our downfall,
seeking to slump us into depression, sin, and even self abuse GF, and
to register this strong in our faculties that there is no reason why
we should let such a lowly thing dominate us or issue us any
inconveniences whatsoever. The prayer of the high priest Rabbi
Yishmuel gives a few paragraphs of invective to put such lowly evil
forces in their place. Ultimately however everything is exactly how
HY wants it for us, so that we have free choice, and without Divine
help and intervention we can not surmount the new attacks of the evil
forces which charge us.
