Revealing Riches from the Sea
True exodus means freeing the G-dly soul from the shackles of the animal soul.
The primary achievement of the Exodus was to liberate the sparks of holiness trapped in Egypt. This occurred primarily at the splitting of the sea. The Egyptian wealth that the Jews took at the sea exceeded that which they took with them from Egypt.
On the Right & On the Left
We must enlist all possible facets of human nature in performing G-d's work.
The purpose of the sea's splitting was not merely to escape from the Egyptians; it also served as a foretaste of the Giving of the Torah and a preparation for it. At the Giving of the Torah, the G-dliness latent within the physical world would be fully revealed.
Journey Forth!
Our task is to sanctify ourselves and the entire world one step at a time.
Four factions developed in front of the Sea of Reeds, each with another plan of action, all erroneous. The common denominator of them all was that their plan of action originated in their own human psyche.

When one reaches the level of absolute surrender and "travels forth", the sea is split -the deepest dimension of the soul, the aspect that is absolutely one with G‑d, is manifest.
