Shavuot 2016 Greetings and Wishes
It’s more like a battle for freedom than a cure for an illness. The evil inclination is the enemy force, fighting to cage the soul; the soul in turn fights back via Torah study and mitzvah observance. The more you do, the harder you fight, the farther back you push the enemy lines.
Dear Shmuel of Jerusalem: Because the cure is on-going. It’s not a once-for-all cure, like getting over a physical disease. It is an on-going struggle. G-d cherishes our victories over evil, and knows that these victories are what make life interesting and meaningful. Good luck with it. Shabbat Shalom.
The cure (Torah) will not be overcome by the malady (evil inclination), but the reverse, as our Sages teach: My son! If the repulsive one engages you, draw him into the study hall: if he is like a stone, he will dissolve, and if he is like iron he will shatter. (Kiddushin 30b)
That we experience an evil inclination to not perform the Mitzvot is the biggest proof of their effectiveness in freeing us from our evil inclination, hence his resistance.
This is as stated by our sages teach us (Avos 6:2): there is no such thing as a free person, save for one occupied in Torah study, which is equal to all of them [i.e. all Mitzvoth combined] (Peah 1:1).
