Parshas Shlach - Falling Upwards
Why does Hashem send a soul down into this world if the only purpose is to return to shomayim? If an aveira is so bad then why does Hashem create aveiros to begin with? In this shiur, Rav Burg explains how sometimes what appears to be falling downwards is actually falling upwards. Within some of the worst moments of our lives, within some of our worst decisions, there is an opportunity to get down to our bare essence and discover a dimension of self that we never knew existed. In these moments we come to realize that we have been falling upwards the entire time.
