I just found out that there are three things in this world that are “Me’ein Olam Ha’abah”. We petty mortals can get a whiff of the world to come…how cool is that. So the three things are Shabbos, walking in the sunlight, and going to the bathroom. Chazal said this eons ago, and I would modernize it by including, taking off high heels.
Of the three, a person can only experience two of them at the same time. Unless you are walking in the sunlight on shabbos while relieving yourself, you are a weird, free- spirit, eewy hobo-type person, and you don’t count.
For the first two, the preparation for them is pretty painless. It’s instant gratification.
It’s not Shabos, then it is, the transition is easy.
You’re walking in the shade, and then there is direct sunlight.
Transitioning is painless, easy, calming…
With going to the bathroom, it’s the one that I understand and appreciate the most… but I hate waking up in the morning with that pre me’ein olam ha’abah feeling.
