187. Choosing Labor

I heard

The issue of the lower Hey in the Eynaim (eyes) means that there was a Masach (screen) and a cover over the eyes. The eyes mean guidance, when one sees hidden guidance.

A trial means that a person cannot decide either way. It is when one cannot determine the Creator’s will, and the will of his teacher. Although one can work devotedly, one is unable to determine if this devoted work is appropriate or not, that this hard work would be against his teacher’s view, and the view of the Creator.

To determine, one chooses that which adds more labor. This means that one should act according to one’s teacher. Only labor is for man to do, and nothing else. Hence, there is no place for doubt in one’s words and actions. Instead, one should always increase labor.
