Rabbi Nachman of Breslov often extolled the virtues of conversing with G-d. He explained it to be such a tremendous practice, that with it, anyone could reach the highest realms imaginable. The Rebbe spoke with the utmost seriousness and instructed his disciples in the ways of this divine work, telling us to set aside at least an hour a day in which to be alone with the Almighty to speak with Him.
He emphasized the greatness of the forests and fields, as well as all other places free of people’ influence and presence. However, a small, quiet room can bring you to the same intimacy with the Creator. (Reb Natan)
