How difficult it is for me to take leave of this world. By performing one small mitzvah - such as the inexpensive mitzvah of tzitzis - a person can reach sublime levels to the point of being worthy of basking in the glory of the Divine Presence. But where can one find such a thing in the World of Truth? There, even if a person exerts every last drop of effort, he cannot reach such levels.
