Confessions of an Anonymous Chossid

Before I had begun to study Chassidus, everything was so uncomplicated; Egypt was Egypt and Pharoah was Pharoah.  Once they drowned in the Red Sea , we were rid of them forever.  Not so once I became exposed to Chassidus... Pharoah is my evil inclination and Egypt is the constraints I encounter in my service to G-d.  No longer is it so simple to rid myself of these formidable foes.

Likewise when chametz was simply leaven, we burned it and it was no more.  Now I have to come to realize that one does not dispose of his chametz, his ego, so easily...
