Souliner: Everything is going in the right direction! Rabbi Akivah was thrown into the ocean as his ship was torn apart by a storm – the sages had given up hope of ever seeing him – yet suddenly he walked into the house of study (beis midrash) “how did you survive?” they asked him incredulously – “every wave that threatened to drown me, I bowed my head to it” – in other words, in life we can fight the current or realize that as God is making the current, bow our head and see the good in it, as Rabbi Akivah did.
