Hashem should bless us all with simcha and growth.
This story is meant to serve as a “Mission Statement” of sorts. I’m a chossid following the path of the Baal Shem Tov, and this story is incredibly important to me, in fact it is the reason I’m online doing this work in the first place.
There was a time when the hailige Baal Shem Tov had yetzias haneshomo (“exiting of the neshomo”) and in this state he went to the Heichal HaMoshiach, the Palace of Moshiach. Once he arrived, he saw Moshiach sitting on his throne, and he asked, “Rebbe, why haven’t you come yet? Don’t you see the tzoros Klal Yisroel is having? When will you come?” Moshiach answered him, “I will come when your Torah flows out over the world like water from a wellspring, and every Yid attains the same spiritual heights as you.” After this experience the Baal Shem returned to his body and told the story.
This is the ikar of the Toras HaBaal Shem, that we should attain tremendous levels in avodas Hashem through simcha, and through this bring Moshiach. Most say the first part of the story, that Chassidus should spread over the world, yet neglect the second part, the reason for this I don’t know. We should all merit to attain the levels of the Baal Shem Tov and experience the Geulah Shleimah.
