How To Be Happy

Someone once asked Reb Noson how he could be happy when he had so many problems and difficulties. Reb Noson answered, “Borrow the happiness!” (Siach Sarfei Kodesh 1-736).

When it comes to money, we rarely hesitate to borrow against future earnings. Well, sadness makes a person feel he’s missing something. The thing to do, as Reb Noson advises, is to borrow from whatever you can think of that makes you happy.

Besides, there’s a big difference between owing money and owing happiness. When money is paid back, it hurts a little. But with happiness, when we pay it back, we have happiness again!

Each New Day

The Architect of the world never does the same thing twice.

Every day is an entirely new creation.

Take as much as you can from what each new day has to offer. (LH 1:123d)

Rebbe Nachman of Breslov, The Empty Chair: Finding Hope and Joy—Timeless Wisdom from a Hasidic Master, Rebbe Nachman of Breslov

Go to Yourself

G-d said to Avraham, “Go to yourself” (Genesis 12:1), because the entire journey of life must be a journey into yourself.

It must be a journey to the inner point of truth, which is the very source of your being and your life.

Reb Natan. Likutei Halakhot, Hilkhot Geneivah 5:5, 7-8

Tsohar: Light, Rebbe Nachman by BRI

Truth through Peace

If we really want the truth, we must not allow ourselves to be drawn into a quarrel by our own half-truths.

How can we expect to rectify anything through conflict and strife?

It is impossible to improve the world and encourage others except through peaceful means.

Reb Natan, Likutei Halakhot, Hilkhot Ribit 5, as cited in Mayim: Water, Rebbe Nachman

Perfected Truth

Truth is most complete precisely when it is revealed and extracted from within “the many.”

The truth that emerges from duality and falsehood represents the most perfected form of truth possible.

Reb Natan, Likutei Halakhot, Hilkhot Ribit 5, as cited in Mayim: Water, Rebbe Nachman

 

Many Lies – One Truth

There are many lies, but there is only one truth. It is only possible to say one truth about any given thing – namely, [the truth about] the way something actually is.

Ultimately, the truth will certainly be revealed and conflict will disappear.

For all conflict is the result of the countless profusion of lies [that exist], and all conflict derives from them. The truth, which is one, will certainly endure forever.

All lies, however, which are [the source of] conflict, will perish; while the truth will endure forever.

Rebbe Nachman, as per Reb Natan of Breslov, in Kitzur Likutey Moharan (Abridged Likutey Moharan) I: 52

Intro: How to Find Your Way in Darkness – Rav Dror

Reb Natan in Likutei Halakhot says:

When we fall into hard times, many of us make the mistake of thinking that when we experience darkness, it’s because of our sins, mistakes, and failures. But the truth is that when people are experiencing darkness, it is because the Creator turned off the light. If the Creator would want to turn on the light, even the darkest hour will shine like the brightest day.

For that, you need faith. Because it is very, very easy for a person to fall into sadness and depression, to self-blame, to self-hatred, and to not recognize the hand of the Creator in what one is going through.

It is very easy to praise the Creator (Hashem), and to recognize His G-dliness when we experience miracles and wonders, and happy things in life. But when something hard is happening in our life, the natural thing to do is to blame ourselves instead of recognizing the G-dly Supervision of the Creator in our life – making the hours even darker…
