Faith and truth are a shining face. They are joy and life. They are the gateway to length of days.
But, falsehood shortens the days of a person’s life. Falsehood is death and idolatry, a dark face.
—Likutey Eitzos, Collection of Rebbe Nachman’s Advice Compiled by Reb Nosson
Immersing yourself in the deeply-true teachings of Breslov Chassidus is life-changing. Want more? Have a conversation* with Hashem about the particular lesson you’re learning—it can bring you to a higher level of awareness and joy.
But, in order to really apply what you are learning to your life, you must be honest about the truths you are learning. It also helps to be honest about yourself.
The main way to get yishuv hadaas, a settled mind, is by being happy. —Rebbe Nachman of Breslov (Likutey Moharan II, 10)
Rebbe Nachman tells us that when we are happy and we are able to control our thoughts and therefore achieve a calm, centered mind, we are able to think about the important things in life, especially life’s ultimate purpose.
