L.H. Hilchot of the Morning Blessings H.5,22

This is what the Tana said: It is revealed and known before you that my will is to do your will only the yeast in the dough inhibits me.etc. Because the yeast in the dough is the opppsite of the supernal will, and it is impossible to nullify and sweeten (this impediment) other than through the illumination of the [metzah haratzon] (forehead) cerebral will. as was mentioned earlier. Therefore, in truth our master, teacher and Ribi Z’L warned us very very much that a person should always be careful to emphasize and literally take control of ones being with positive thoughts desires, and yearnings for HaShem may He be Blessed. Because the essence is the will etc…and like it is clarified inumerable times in his teachings. And even more than this he spoke with us constantly saying “even if a person is as low as he is, as long as he does not give up on himself, and conquers with positive thoughts and yearnings to HaShem may he be blessed and his Torah, through this he gives power to all the true Tzadikim who are constantly engaged in channeling the illumination of the [metzach haratzon], and through this they raise up a person from devastation to ultimate will.  Understand this well. Also, this is what the Tana himself was doing speaking before HaShem in his prayer  above “it is revealed and known before you”.  etc… Through the very act of making this argument before HaShem he brought upon himself incredible yearning and desires for Hashem and was able to bring the illumination of the ultimate supernal will, and essentially nullify the yeast in the dough which is impeding him  from doing HaShems will.

All of this is the realty of speaking directly before HaShem, which our master and teacher Z’L warned us constantly without measure that this is the main channel. The entire idea of this personal prayer is to renew and strengthen ones own will and desire to serve and come close to HaShem. Through this a person brings into his life the illumination of the supernal redemption [pidyon] that was mentioned earlier. One must be very very vigilant in this beyond measure. THen in the end finally he will certainly sweeten everything through the power of the Tzadik who is engaged in the universal redemption[pidyon hakollel] of souls. Then everything will be transformed into the good because in this place everything is rectified. NNNNM Gevalt!!
