down in the money

HaShem seeming far away lately? The Noam Elimelech (Parashath Re'eh) suggests this might be because you've been spending too much time worrying about money. 

Instead he suggests, spend your money on what your soul desires, not what your body desires. Your body naturally desires the fleeting pleasures of this world, whereas your soul cares only about mitzwoth, especially Tzedakah.

Through giving life to your money by spending it towards mitzwoth, you realign your world, and bring yourself closer to HaShem. In this manner you can even reach the level of the greatest Tzaddikim, the Noam Elimelech confides.
