“A man will never see Me as long as he’s alive” (Shemos 33:20). This world is not a place to realize the ambition of seeing Hashem. It’ll make us happier as we come closer and closer, but we’ll never fully realize that until we come into the next world.
No matter what man accomplishes — even if he comes into the Holy of Holies like the kohen gadol — it won’t quench the fire in his soul until he sees Hashem with his own eyes. That’s what he really wants. That’s his only true happiness. — Most Beautiful Nation
