Exertion During Weakness

How does one make efforts while his body objects and his mind reminds him of failures in work?

If I failed to the extent that I now find myself in limpness, confusion, and weakness,  then my entire body objects and I can't even move a finger in the spiritual direction. There is sometimes a feeling that if I try to do something, then that the situation will only make things worse than they were before.  So then, why should I try to begin something when from the beginning there is no hope?  What should one do?

One needs to get the importance of the goal from the society. There is no other chance. Then, we will ask the question of how we can be included into the society and receive from it the importance, if the body objects and doesn't allow me to go. If I commit to get to a certain place, I need to keep my word and fulfill it.

You make an excuse: I know in advance that they will come to help me and will take me home because I asked them in advance for help. A person needs to worry that the environment will worry for him in difficult situations, otherwise alone he will not advance. He will always find excuses for himself, "I'll study on the weekend when I have more time,'' etc.

Oil and Incense   

About the meaning of what is written in The Zohar, "Oil and incense will gladden a heart."

The meaning of ‘'heart'' is desire. "Incense'' stands for the Light of Hassidim (Mercy). Ohr Hozer (Returning Light) and "oil'' stand for the Light of Hochma (Intelligence). And according to what is written "Oil and incense will gladden the heart.'' refers to the desire that has within it the Light of Hassidim, i.e., Masach (Screen) and Returning Light. And then he can already receive the Light of Hochma within him and thus it is called a joyful heart, joyful desire.
