Exodus 15:21 And Miriam answered them, Sing ye to the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider has he thrown into the sea.
The horse and its rider are your negative thoughts (rider) and the momentum that carries them (the horse) refers to the state of mind that is trapped by the weight of those negative thoughts. Getting beyond this state of mind is what happens when the miraculous occurs.
The miraculous is symbolized by the opening of the sea which is free flow of holiness that presents the way through. This holiness is engendered by Shekhinta creating that significant pathway for thoughts of good to line up and pass on through even under the most difficult of circumstances.
The Eternal always provides a way through since by its nature it is continuously creating opportunities for Creation for inspiration and ultimately for Divine connection. This is more than evident in this week's parsha Lech Lecha.
Gen: 12-1 … And the Lord said to Abram, "Go forth from your land and from your birthplace and from your father's house, to the land that I will show you.
This is the initial opening following Abram's revelation of the unity of the Eternal. It is not only the way thorough to experience holiness it is the way through for all of Israel meaning all of our thoughts of holiness.
This dynamic of seeing the way through is meant to awaken within us the possibilities that are inspired by this elevation of thought. These eventualities are by definition "the way through" our troubles even leading to the perception and real time feeling of Divine connection.
Through the eyes of Kabbalah we seek to awaken the inspirations that evoke these connections aligning them with our every day experiences. Torah beneath its elegant surface contains the keys to these awakenings applicable to every life situation. In a sense what you do by studying Torah is to "make it work for you."
There is always resistance as in the horse and its rider and in the first example there is Tohu va Bohu of Bereishis, darkness and void the ultimate resistance against which the forces of good are always transforming these seemingly negative aspects into the "light" that comes immediately afterwards.
Learn to "see" every apparent resistance in your life as an opportunity to connect above and to transform the resistance into the "light of holiness."
