‘If a person sees that suffering befalls him ......
He should examine his deeds.’ (Berachos 5a)
Just like the physical world, Judaism believes in a cause-effect spiritual world also.
If things aren’t going well in life, likely it’s a manifestation of a spiritual malaise. (could be some correction needed from a prior life)
Nevertheless, the Rabbis tell us that this is the first place to look.
Examine your deeds and see if you are living up to your own values and standards. If not, take the opportunity to make a change.
