On Purim, it is a mitzvah to hear the Megillah both at night, and Purim day. Every single one of us has our own Megillah. Some of the pages are filled up, but there are still many empty pages. When we read the Megillah, we are reminded of how we were at such a low level, but we were able to attach ourselves completely to HaKadosh Baruch Hu, and reached great levels in our Avodas Hashem… we were zoche to receive the Torah again M’Ahavah! You have the whole megillah ahead of you to write! You have a whole life ahead of you, until 120! Every person is different, no situation is the same. Your megillah is unique, beautiful, precious, the most sweetest thing to Hashem Yisbarech that can not be compared to anyone else! Just like any healthy mother or father can not show more favoritism or love towards one child over the next, every single life is so precious to Hashem. After 120, what will your Megillah look like? Will it be a story of hester panim, where Hashem was hidden throughout the whole Megillah? Or will Hashem be revealed in EVERY chapter? YOU have the ability to bring out Hashem throughout every single page in your life, every sentence, every word, and every letter mamesh! To reveal Hashem in the hester and shine His light throughout the world- throughout YOUR world!
Why do we read the Megillah both on Purim night and Purim day? Hashem gave me a beautiful thought: It is two types of readings. At night it is dark, and the aspect of “hidden” is felt more than ever. We read the Megillah to remind us that in the darkest of time, Who never leaves us? HaKadosh Baruch Hu! Our Loving Father! We read the Megillah at night as a reminder that Hashem is the only One in the world who can help pull us through and that we need to daven and rely ONLY on Him! We have to put our complete faith in Him and know that He will help us through, no matter how thick the night may be. Emunah is the opening of that light in our personal darkness! Why do we read it a second time on Purim day? This is also to remind us that no matter how thick the night may be, there is always morning that follows it. There is always light after the darkness. Reading the Megillah during the day is not a reading of hopelessness and despair, but a reading of gratitude! We are able to SEE the light so clearly that we thank Hashem over and over again, and from that light we so clearly see, we are mamesh able to feel the warmth of His love so strongly.
