Reb Shlomo Carlebach zt"l on Parshas Bamidbar

(Via Stuie Wax)

I want you to know the deepest deepest depths. What is the holy book of Bamidbar all about? The essence of Bamidbar is one thing. In Bereishis, you learn the beginning; how G-d created the world, and how he created the beginning of the Jewish People. Shemos is all about how we became a nation and received the Torah. In Vayikra we learn how to serve G-d. But you know something so crazy - you can know Bereishis, Shemos and Vayikra, and you can still fall to the lowest depths!
Do you know why? Because it takes more than all this.
You know friends, you can do everything right in life and yet not get to the point. Imagine I met this girl and I love her the most. I say to her "I want you to marry me." She says "Why should I marry you?" I say "Because I'll do everything you want me to do." How exciting. She says "I'm sorry. It doesn't turn me on." "It doesn't turn you on? What do you mean? I just said that I will do anything you tell me to do!" 
It's got to be deeper than that.
You know friends, I'll tell G-d "I'll do anything You want me to do", and I'm still off. It takes something deeper than that. You think the highest you can offer G-d is to do everything right? It's possible to do everything right and still be off. If you follow the portions of Bamidbar, we learn about Aaron, Miriam and even Moshe. Even Moshe can make a mistake; it's possible because we are just human beings.
The book of Bamidbar begins when mamesh the Ribbono Shel Olam is counting Yidden, what is it all about? G-d is counting every Yid's individual strength, and He is begging us, "Yiddelach, each of you have to find your own connection which is beyond just doing everything right and not doing wrong." 

Good Shabbos!
