Netzach JunkiesMay 30, 2021
By Rabbi Amichai Cohen
There are inspiration junkies and Netzach junkies. We all know about inspiration junkies. It’s those ppl who are constantly buying the next self-help book, addicted to inspiration, without doing the actual inner work.
What are Netzach junkies?
They are people who are addicted to the rigorous life of hard work. Although hard work is anything but negative, the manner of hard work can be.
When life is just about pushing forward and work, work, work, there is a lack of the spark of which life is made up. Joy and feelings of achievement are looked at as secondary to the actual technical aspects
There is such a deep value in Netzach that it causes the person to place it as the prime focus.
The reason for this is because it comes from such a deep place with the human psyche- Keter. In a similar vein, we don’t yearn for Moshiach enough because we know that there is a value in the struggle of Golus- exile. Yet the battle is often redundant and unnecessary. We are simply used to battle bc that is what we are used to.
