Focus on the Good

Always look for the good
in others.

Focus on that good and highlight it.

How To Be At Peace

Be like G-d and don’t look for people’s shortcomings and weak points.

You will then be at peace with everyone. (Ad. p.258)

The Power to Create

Although there are things we cannot understand, things which remain paradoxical no matter what, we must strengthen ourselves each and every day to think good thoughts.

We are important enough in G-d’s eyes to be considered mini-creators.

Each and every one of us is entrusted with these powers to create.

Our thoughts, our desires create Day, they create the good that exists in this world

Likutei Halakhot, Minchah 7:2

Chaim Kramer, Crossing the Narrow Bridge

Seek Only The Good

G-d’s way is to focus on the good. Even if there are things that aren’t so good, He only looks for the good.

How much more do we have to avoid focusing on the faults of our friends? We are obligated to seek only the good— always! (Likutei Moharan II: 17).

A Little Bit of Truth

A little bit of truth can bring us to very great truth.

Our personal “point” of truth gives us contact with Supreme Truth, G-d’s Truth.

Some light sources shine with their own light, like the sun. Others do not shine with their own light, but reflect the light coming from an external source, like the moon.

In the same way, the “lower” truth in all of creation channels the “higher” Truth, G-d’s Truth.

Our Point of Truth

A type if truth exists in every one of us.

It is the truth of the soul, which gives us life and power. The truth of our dignity as human beings. The truth of our positive points, our good qualities.

Rebbe Nachman refers to the truth that resides in each of us as the “point” of truth in a person.
