One thing made Rabbi Nachman great!

Maybe in Sichot Haran, this Friday at Saba's I read.. "everyone thinks/ says that I became great thanks to my being the great-grandson of the Baal Shem Tov. Only because of one thing, did I reach my level"... and no further explanation. Don't you want to know what this "one thing" is?

Then.., I overhear a conversation between Shimon G. and a less familiar, but learned Na Nach who states that Rabbi Nachman's "fearsome secret" is that he never looks back.

In New Age religions they say to live in the present, but RN is more accurate. If you are new, then you aren,t tired, sick, depressed or full of regrets and remorse. You aren't about to make a mistake you have already made. Attitude is all important when combined with faith since it is the omnipresent that does everything, not us.

This is the attitude of Jacob that Isaac has when dealing with Abimelech in Grar. They fill up the well, move on and build another.
