“And the Jewish People passed through the Sea on dry land…”
Every one of us is constantly attacked and bombarded by his mind. The best way to avoid becoming overwhelmed by ones thoughts and worries is by simply not paying any attention to them at all. We must split the sea!
When the rushing waters start to overpower us, when we are stuck in the depth of the sea with nowhere to run, the Jewish Soul is in great distress – it is overwhelmed. Don’t look back! You have but one option – pay no attention to that which is going on around you.
God commanded Moshe: “Tell the people they should journey!” Go forward but don’t look back for even one second. And so Nachshon jumped into the sea and the rest of the Jewish People followed. God saw our strength and thus split the sea for us. If we strengthen and encourage ourselves and go forward without looking back – immediately our doubts and negativity disappear and we cross over on dry land.
