28. Transferring My Heavy Load

One of the ways of growing in bitachon (trust) is actually a very simple visualization. After I’ve done my part, after I’ve been involved in the world, I used the world in the way that Hashem wanted. To earn my living I went into the marketplace and very, very carefully analyzed and put in my best effort, in terms of medical issues I did my research and I consulted. When I’m done my part, I visualize within my mind taking my heavy load and transferring it to Hashem. I say to myself, I’ve done my part, I’ve done my hishtadlus (effort), I’ve used the world in the ways of the world, and now I visualize taking my heavy load and transferring it to Hashem. Hashem, I’ve done mine, now I know that exactly what You have decreed is for the best will be.

Imagining that sort of transference, imagining that sort of taking my heavy load and putting it on Hashem is a very powerful tool for bitachon. Again, I’ve done my part very carefully, I’ve used the world in the ways of the world, I’ve done my hishtadlus as I should, but then I visualize taking my heavy load, transferring it to Hashem. I then recognize that exactly that which Hashem decrees should be will be, and there’s a sense of calm, of equanimity, a sense of bitachon. I rely and trust in my Creator.
