לזכות יהודי השרוי במצוקה שה' יוציאנו מאפילה לאורה!!
There are great people who are capable of their greatness through a strengthening of simcha in Hashem. If these people are distracted a little from their elevated level and cease to "wave the flag" of strength and exultation, immediately they fall from greatness to smallness and stumble in coarseness and crude pleasure and they have no other recourse other than to return to their greatness and strength. When they discover that they only stumbled because of the time and smallness - that in itself is teshuva and they return to their original clear, personal level.
