Q: How can we be sure that we are fulfilling our life’s mission and not making a big mistake?
A: Even Aaron the High Priest, one of the all-inclusive and greatest souls, made a mistake. This means that everyone can make mistakes. This is part of the process of searching for our mission in life. The sages say that Moses made a mistake because he became angry. If we want to prevent mistakes as much as possible, for starters, we must not succumb to anger. Anger is like making a golden calf. When we become angry, we are actually protesting the way that God rules the world. From there, it is just a short step to making a serious mistake and even literally worshipping idols.
