Q&A: How do I apply Likutey Moharan teachings without estranging myself?

Q&A: How do I apply Likutey Moharan teachings without estranging myself?

I feel like I’ve been through an inferno after spending all that time reading Rabeinu’s words, what does he mean, how do I apply his concepts, without estranging myself from, myself, society, from the world even from my loved ones. If you ever feel that the Rebbe’s words are putting you through an inferno, then take that as a sign that you do not properly understand what the Rebbe is saying. If someone ever gets the feeling that...

Sukkot Joy

Sukkot Joy

Apropos of Sukkot, an abridged rendition of Likutey Moharan II, Lesson #81 When a person cheers himself with the joy of mitzvah, and the joy is so great that it reaches down to his feet—i.e., he dances for joy—this concept is called “we will bring home a heart of wisdom” (Psalms 90:12). The feet are Netzach and Hod, the prophets. They ascend to the concept of the heart through the heart’s joy, because the joy elevates them. This is...

Dvar Torah for Sukkot/Feed Your Head

Dvar Torah for Sukkot Feed Your Head You’re probably familiar with the expression “a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” That was told to young women of bygone generations to encourage them to learn how to cook well so that could “catch” a man. Well, Rebbe Nachman teaches, the same is true of coming close to Hashem (God). The way to your neshamah (soul) is through your stomach. But the way away from your neshamah is also...

Bouncing Back—and Forward

Dvar Torah for Parshat Netzavim-VaYelekh Bouncing Back—and Forward “You are standing here today… (Deuteronomy 29:9). Rashi comments: “Like ‘today’ which is, which gets dark and which shines, [God] has shone on you in the past and will shine on you in the future. The curses and the suffering [of Deuteronomy 28] maintain and sustain you.* They help keep you going with [God].” Ooyyyyyy! Finally. Finally! The last Shabbos (aka...

Dvar Torah for Parshat Vayetze

Based on Chayei Moharan (Tzaddik) #349 “…[Yaakov] took stones from the place and placed them at his head and lay down…” (Genesis 28:11). Rashi comments: He arranged them around his head, like a bunker, because he was afraid of wild animals. The stones started to argue with one another, each one saying, “The tzaddik should rest his head upon me.” Immediately the Blessed Holy One merged them into one. Rebbe Nachman once...

HaModia article

This article originally appeared in the Erev Sukkos 5771/2010 edition of the English-laguage version of HaModia. It is posted here with their kind permission. Since I wrote it on the Sunday before Rosh HaShanah, less than 24 hours before my pilgrimage to Uman, prior to packing for my flight to Odessa, I thought of titling the article Breslov in a Hurry. Fortunately I, and Mrs. Birnhack HaModia’s editor, realized that a more...

Dvar Torah for Elul/Teshuvah-Time

Dvar Torah for Elul/Teshuvah-Time Based on Likutey Halakhot, P’ru u’R’vu 3:10 We’re taking a break from the based-on-the-parshah dvar Torah. Don’t fret none. With God’s help we’ll be writing and you’ll be reading, just it won’t (necessarily) be about the parshah. And, also with God’s help, it won’t be boring or uninformative, either. Now, you’ve certainly heard and read a lot about teshuvah. You’ve seen the word teshuvah translated in...

{This post was first published on 6 June 2010 and was updated 13 June. New comments are in {}. My thanks to those who have commented. You made the post a better one.} The recent article in Mishpacha Magazine that we were thankful for, and applauded here, was recently followed by a number of “Letters to the Editor.” Those letters, sad to say, were full of canard-laced ignorance-based attacks on Breslov. Even though we...
