The Illusion of Obstacles

Know! Even though it may seem to each person that the obstacles that one faces in service of G-d are greater than another’s and that it is impossible to overcome them, in truth, this is really not so. For there is no obstacle that a person cannot break if one really wants to. Moreover, G-d sends a person obstacles only in accordance with a person’s own strength and ability to withstand them if the person really wants to. Additionally, if a person looks closely, one will be able to understand that G-d is concealed even within the obstacle itself. Therefore, the truth is that there is no such thing as an obstacle at all, since all obstacles are but an illusion.
