Today the blessed sun returned after our six straight days of rain.
The unusual heavy wetness was too much for this ancient agricultural terrace wall, and the stones collapsed onto a section of green-and-white-marked hiking trail in our valley.
I prayed the heavy rocks would not start falling again as I was climbing over.
It reminded me that the Rebbe Maharash (of Chabad) had this saying:
"The whole world says, if you can't go under, go over.
I say, forget going under, just go over!"
Meaning that often there is no time or energy or need for painstakingly working through a problem, so we should jump to the most direct, simple, and powerful solution and just DO it.
Usually this is the most outrageous solution to the challenge, but that's OK.
Just start by stepping right over it, as though there were no obstacle to begin with.
Maybe that’s why obstacles are there in the first place--so we will go higher.
