adar aleph 5: minha: dust in the wind

Dust is so small and light it is practically nothing. While we are much greater and more significant than a grain of dust, we are stuck literally in the dust, on the ground. Dust, by virtue of its smallness is not bound in this same way, the wind comes and often stirs up the dust and away it flies.

When we return ourselves to dust, when we recognize our insignifigance in the face of HaShem, then the spirit of HaShem can come along and waft us away to the highest worlds carry us off to the most distant places.

We can't force our way to closeness with HaShem, but when we recognize that HaShem is in control, He fills us with His spirit, raises us up, and brings us close. This is ruah haKodesh.
