A vort from Baal Shem Tov in honor of Chai Elul

Chai Elul is Baal Shem Tov's birthday.

by Yaakov from GYE (See all authors)

Every pull to lust and connection is really a pull of your soul to G-d... It's just that an addict's brain messes up the signals... The Bal Shem Tov calls it "Fallen Love"... Its source is up on high, but our souls are trapped in physical bodies and are looking for the answers in the wrong places.

So when you keep feeling the obsession, it's not because G-d is abandoning you. It's because He is calling you. Your soul is yearning for something... something... you just don't know what, and see with eyes of flesh. Try to see with the eyes of your soul what it is that you REALLY are looking for.
