Know that whatever we experience, no matter in which form it presents itself and particularly from your immediate family and especially from your wife are all a direct communication from Hashem, and they are our prophecy if we would but understand this and decode it we could walk through life effortlessly avoiding untold stress and damages.
It is by these communications that we receive our mission orders. It is precisely in this manner that we interface and receive the tools we need to achieve our spiritual perfection. A monk on the mountain attains little in the way of spiritual perfection; there is no one to strive with. This life we live is our link of prophecy.
If we find ourselves faced by contradictory messages in life that is just the way that creation has been designed to give us the appearance of free will and thereby test us.
All of this relates to why the study of Shulchan Aruch is emphasized so strongly by Rebbe Nachman, “A Halachic decision brings peace”. This resolution of conflict in general is what brings shefa into our lives and the world in general. It brings inner peace and resolve to all one’s conflicts, both internal and external.
This resolution removes “the divided heart” which produces instability. For “when Hashem is pleased with a person’s ways, even his enemies” – the Yeitzer and his thoughts, which twist us and bend us- “even his enemies will make peace with him.”
And with this peace we will be full of joy and thanksgiving and will merit the full redemption.
