Have you ever heard the expression, “Smile, though your heart is broken”? Seems odd? Doesn’t it seem more logical that if you‟re hurting, you should be sad and upset?
Our Sages tell us otherwise, “Whoever, is drawn to problems – problems are drawn to him” (Berachos, 63a).
Simply put, thinking about problems magnifies them; giving no thought to them, shrinks them.
So, you got a problem? Why not do the opposite; don’t think about it; forget about it, and be grateful!
Forget about It!: Based on the Teachings of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov and of His Student Rabbi Nossan of Breslov, by Mohorosh HaKodesh Breslov
Through the Truth, G-d Himself will shine to us and help us see the openings of hope that exist even in the lowest depths.
This is the way to escape the Darkness and enter the Light, constantly coming closer to G-d.
