The Main Chometz is cleansing our mind – breslove 148
The Main Chometz is cleansing our mind:
The main thing is to guard one’s mind it shouldn’t get leavened, he shouldn’t think bad thoughts and entertain lusts which come from the side of death, and one needs to rebuke those thoughts which are from the other side, and to drive them away from his mind and thinking, they shouldn’t come near him, because they numb his brain and as a result one cannot pray or be happy, therefore one needs to be careful with them even with one tiny bit, for this is the main chometz and the leavening of the dough that we need to get rid of, it shouldn’t be seen or found, and to purify and completely empty our minds of them.
(Likutei Eitzos, Thoughts, 1)
הָעִקָּר לִשְׁמֹר מֹחוֹ שֶׁלֹּא יֶחֱמָץ, שֶׁלֹּא יְהַרְהֵר בְּהִרְהוּרִים רָעִים וּבְתַאֲווֹת שֶׁהֵם סִטְרָא דְּמוֹתָא, וְצָרִיךְ לִגְעֹר בְּאֵלּוּ הַמַּחֲשָׁבוֹת שֶׁהֵם סִטְרִין אַחֲרָנִין וּלְגָרְשָׁם מִדַּעְתּוֹ וּמַחֲשַׁבְתּוֹ שֶׁלֹּא יִתְקָרְבוּ אֵלָיו, כִּי הֵם מְטַמְטְמִין מֹחוֹ וְעַל-יְדֵי זֶה אֵינוֹ יָכוֹל לְהִתְפַּלֵּל וְאִי אֶפְשָׁר לוֹ לִשְׂמֹחַ, עַל-כֵּן צְרִיכִין לִזָּהֵר בָּהֶם בְּמַשֶּׁהוּ, כִּי הֵם עִקַּר הֶחָמֵץ וְהַשְּׂאוֹר שֶׁבָּעִסָּה שֶׁצְּרִיכִים לְבַעֲרָם בְּבַל יֵרָאֶה וּבְבַל יִמָּצֵא וּלְטַהֵר וּלְפַנּוֹת אֶת הַמֹּחַ מֵהֶם.
(ליקוטי עצות, מחשבות והרהורים, א’)
From here we see that the main part of the hametz is the thoughts in our mind,
Also the main force that clings and does not leave the person and creates blockages for him at work or with people or problems in health and in the soul, a kind of spiritual storm wind, like confusions in the person's soul, also the evil eye and witchcraft that are perceived in people – they depend on the thoughts of the person and his spiritual state and his thoughts.
Passover is a spiritual holiday that cleanses us of all the spirit and witchcraft of the ancient Egyptians who were very great in the wisdom of witchcraft, and were rulers of the world,
The nation of Israel by faith and the ways of the Torah and Moses rabinu, in their prayers and cries and requests and wishes that were full of faith – for the mercy of God, Creator of the world, one Lord and ruler of all creation from Genesis to this day…
They came out of the enchanted kingdom in the morning visible to the eyes of the whole world, and he performed miracles for them and changed nature, for the sake of his great name to increase his power in the world, like a king who shows his face to his subjects so that they may see the greatness of his glory.
And so every year Jews believe that in every generation there is an exile of the soul amid the troubles of the Egyptians, each one with his own troubles because no one goes through this world peacefully, everyone has pain or trouble or difficulty moving forward in all kinds of fields.
So the cleaning for Passover is both in the home and in the soul and especially in the thoughts – to be more religious, to try harder to be regular in the prayers and mitzvahs of the Torah, and to keep the joy because we believe in the Creator of the world, who is when he sees our desires to be better to ourselves and others, then he will bring us out with miracles and mercy through miracles Above nature from the private exile of each of us.
A prayer to burn the hametz from the heart and mind
Donate your soul freedom and release yourself from exile !!!
