The Bnei (children of) Yisrael said, "ritzoneinu liros es Malkeinu -- we want to see Hashem". They wanted to see Hashem. Don't you believe in Moshe Rabbeinu? He told you!
No, it's not enough, we want to you!...
The more you can see Hashem in this world, the more you're fulfilling your purpose of being in this world. We're in this world to gain an actual feeling that we're standing in the presence of Hashem. And the more you gain that feeling, the more you're successful with your life in this world. -- Show Me Your Glory (Gifts of Emunah) (#E-176)
