Don't Run Away from the Battle
Test yourself: Are you here or did you run away from the battle?
To run away from the battle is called that you are sitting here, pleasantly, good to the friends and the environment, fulfilling all the rules of society, taking part in the duties, but your thoughts for some time are already in another place and actually you aren't with us. This is called that you are running away. Physically you are here, filling in a space and occupying a seat. But, we are not considering bodies, rather, desires and intentions. It could be that in this way you have not been here for some time already. This means that during the lessons neither Mocha (mind) or Liba (heart) were given. You don't have the desire and thought to attract the Light that Reforms.
Each one must check himself if he is escaping or not. This is work for each moment. It is written, "One should not ignore the principles of the Torah." The principle is the Light that Reforms especially during the time of the lessons. Even if you prepared yourself before the lessons and during the studies you escaped, then for 5 minutes you were in the correct intention, but afterwards all the three hours were lost. The self examination should constantly be: Am I here or not.
