Rebbe Nachman, after delivering a lesson in which he referred to one’s desires and evil inclination as illusory and dreamlike, said, “We should give the Evil One a new name. From now on he should be called Imagination” (Likutei Moharan I: 25:end).
We imagine ourselves different than we really are…
As Rebbe Nachman said: The world deceives you. Accept this from me. Do not let yourselves be fooled! (Rabbi Nachman’s Wisdom #51).
