A person’s success in this life depends on one’s attainment of that most valuable of qualities: patience – patience in the face of everything.
How can you attain true patience – the bearing with equanimity of all your experiences, both the spiritual and the worldly? The answer is: faith.
A Soft Answer: Based on the Teachings of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov and of His Student Rabbi Nossan of Breslov, by Mohorosh HaKodesh Breslov
Pain and suffering are with us in so many different ways. For many people, the fact of suffering is a major obstacle to faith.
Rebbe Nachman himself suffered intensely during much of his life. He had to confront the difficult questions face to face. But he was not afraid of them, because as he said, “I am a ‘Know what to answer the non-believer'” (Tzaddik #418).
Garden of the Souls, by Avraham Greenbaum, BRI
G-d wants us to stay connected and aligned, but guilt keeps us separate.
Shame over the past keeps us from reconnecting with our Source.
Rabbi Baruch Gartner, Living Aligned
When you raise your voice and to speak to the Creator in your own words, life becomes sweeter, you gain clarity, wisdom, patience, insight, and sweetness in the renewed and expanding awareness that G-d was there listening to your sweet voice your whole life!

A person needs to scream to one’s Father in Heaven with a powerful voice from the depths of one’s heart.
Then G-d will listen to his voice and turn to his outcry. And it could be that from this act itself, all doubts and obstacles that are keeping him back from true service of Hashem will fall from him and be completely nullified.
Rebbe Nachman, Likutei Moharan II: 46
If your desire is very strong, you will certainly be able to accomplish what you want and bring it from potential to actual. For the main purpose of the obstacle is to strengthen the desire. When the strength of your desire matches the strength of the obstacle, the obstacle becomes surmountable. (Rebbe Nachman, Likutei Moharan I: 66)
