Anyone can experience the Infinite Light, at least for a limited time. Just close your eyes and meditate on the fact that nothing exists but Bore Olam (the Creator of the universe), until you forget yourself completely. Then automatically all your sufferings will cease.
The more one is aware of serving God and becoming a conduit for God’s will, the greater the rectified ego can lead others: "
"He used to say: Do His will as if it was your will that He may do your will as if it was His will. Make your will of no effect before His will that He may make the will of others of no effect before your will." Pirkei Avot- Ethics of the Fathers; Chapter 2:4
In relation to man, one must be sure that any action initiated for the sake of others comes from sincere intent and not from self-serving interests or hidden agendas, let everything done for the sake of heaven.
A life of Torah and mitzvot is the surest path to a good life. It is the very best thing for a human being and will bring him to the greatest fulfillment in this world
In short, if a person wants to have good relationships with his parents, spouse or children he should follow the directives of the Torah. If he wants to have a healthy body he should follow the laws of Kashrut (eat kosher food).
If he wants to create healthy children he should keep the laws of Taharat Hamishpachah (the laws of family purity).
If he wants to have a healthy mind and heart he should lay Tefillin and study Torah. To create a healthy atmosphere at home he should create a home where Torah is studied and mitzvot are kept.
If he wants family dialogue he should have a Friday night table upon which words of Torah are discussed.
If he wishes to be protected he should have a mezuzah on his door (by keeping the physical mitzvot at home with the right intention, keeps our home kosher and protected by Bore Olam / the Creator of the World).
If he wishes for Divine benevolence he must dispense charity to the needs.
These are the pathways, not only to bliss in this world, and in the world to come.
True happiness is achieved by feeling awe and nullification (bitul) towards the things, people and experiences that have come into your life (your memories) that you did little or nothing to influence their entry into your life. Focusing on these things is what makes a person happy, knowing that HaShem is in control at all times, and He is the one who provides this soul sastifiying experiences.
Pray to HaShem only, seek Him as He can be found, in the merit of Avraham, Yitzak, Ya’acov, David, and of course, our Rabbi, Maran Yeshua. Amen.
