Shelach: Mitzvah 387-Concept 24 = Constant Mitzvah #6
“Do not explore after your heart and after your eyes after which you stray.” (Numbers 15:39)
· Do not tear yourself down when you look at others and compare. Do not allow your self-doubts to tear you apart.
· Proverbs 20:12: “A hearing ear and a seeing eye; God made them both.” Did God not make all the different parts of the body? Solomon specified the two senses that cannot help but be exposed to negative influences.
· When you sense some low thought or desire within yourself, and you know that you are once again being cast thousands of miles from the border of holiness, let a groan break forth from your lips: Woe, Master of the universe, at least do not let me be cast away from You to the lowest depths.”
