Baal Shem Tov – 20. It states “ Shevisi I place God before my eyes consistently” Shevisi comes from the word Hishtavus equanimity – whatever happens to you should be equal – whether people praise or shame you – and anything else – similarly with taste – whether you eat delicacies or not – it should all be the same to you – for you have from yourself removed the Yetzer Hara – and anything that occurs to you – say to yourself “but this came from God – and if He saw for this to occur, and it is right in his eyes… “- everything you do, your intention should be only for God – this is a great level indeed.
