|Rebbe Nachman of Breslov taught…|
|You are wherever your thoughts are.
Make sure your thoughts are where you want to be.
(The Empty Chair, p. 20*)
|What does this mean to me?|
|In Rebbe Nachman’s Wisdom, Rebbe Nachman explains that, physically, every faculty in the body that is higher on the vertical plane can “reach further.” One can reach higher than he can kick; one can hear from further away than his voice can project; one can see to a further distance than that from which he can hear; and the horizon of a person’s thoughts are truly endless. Thought is our highest faculty (other than the will that propels them), and wherever it goes, it takes us with it.|
|Help me, dear G-d, stay calm
And settle my thoughts.
Shine down upon me
Help me control my mind
My sins have hidden You from me,
Work wonders for me,
(Between me and You, pg. 194-196)
