Morning Blessings-Elokai, Neshama-Pesach
We read in Pirkei Avot, “Know from where you came (3:1).” These words are addressed to the soul, that it may know that it has come from the Upper World. “And reflect to where you are going.” These are also directed to the soul, that it may give a suitable answer to the question, “Are you acsending as you should or are you descending?” (Michtevei haRav Chafetz Chaim, page 94).
Haggadah: “And numerous,” as it is written: “I made you as populous as the plants of the field; you grew up and wore choice adornments; your breasts were firm and your hair grew long; yet you were bare and naked. And I passed over you and saw you wallowing in your blood, and I said to you, ‘Through your blood you shall live,’ and I said to you, ‘ Through your blood you shall live.”’ We are describing both from where we came and to where we potentially can go.
