Remembering The Good Old Days

Hold On! Yesterday’s Glow
Meshivat Nefesh #18

Rebbe Nachman taught: “You need to always be in a state of joy and serve G-d from that place, even if you sometimes fall from the level that you’d like to be on—meaning, even if you’ve done wrong. The way to pick yourself up is by encouraging yourself with the spiritual light that you’ve experienced in the past, the glow of the good days. You can tap into that light and it can give you strength and vitality even now, so that you can start again and get back to where you want to be.”

Dear G-d,
Please help me to remember
the powerful glow of my good yesterdays.
I know that if I’ll just allow myself to feel it
by remembering how it used to shine for me,
I’ll be able to restore my soul to its rightful place.
(Based on Likutey Moharan I:222)

Yehudis in her own words: When I first began learning Rebbe Nachman’s teachings with my husband and other teachers, I felt as though I had come home to the personal and vital relationship with G-d that I’d always sought. Today, a large part of my inspiration comes from helping other Jewish women discover their own spiritual potential through the meaningful teachings of Breslov Chassidut. Yehudis Golshevsky has been teaching Torah classes to women and working in Torah publishing for nearly twenty years. She’s a graduate of Yavne Teacher’s Seminary in Cleveland and holds a degree in Judaic Studies from SUNY at Buffalo. Currently, Yehudis is a contributor to Breslov.org and “Pathways”, the Breslov Research Institute’s weekly publication. Since 2006, she’s been taking women’s groups to Uman and other sites in Ukraine for prayer and study. Yehudis lives with her family in Jerusalem.
