Application of the parable to תפלה - עבודה שבלב, specifically מאדך בכל

The ultimate goal of divine service (prayer) is the revelation of our inner spiritual core (נקודת הלב). This spiritual core is identified, in the previous maamar, as originating in Keser Malchus of Atzilus. As such, it is inaccessible to dimensions of the soul that descend into the world of Briah and below.

The limitations imposed upon the soul by this descent, as well as the innumerable obstacles, spiritual and physical, that we encounter in life create a powerful sense of detachment and spiritual loss (the perception that our Father has abandoned us in the words of the mashal).

In this shiur, we will review relevant “spiritual anatomy” from the previous maamar that clarifies this concept.
