From an ongoing translation of the holy words of Saba Yisroel

The first time in my life I heard the name Breslov.

But I heard that there is a hasidus in the world called Breslov, so I remained without the book, but I continued to do hisbodidus, and I prayed to H”Y that he should have mercy on me, just as he began to help me and I found this book and I know what this is, what it did to me, so I requested that He should summon to me the books of Breslov and hasidim of Breslov. I lived in Tiberius and I did not leave Tiberius. I did not know Safed which was close, and everyone travels to Meron in Elul and Lag BuOmer. And I was poor, I did not have money, I did not travel to Safed. If I would have traveled to Safed, I would have heard, perhaps, in Safed there were Breslov hasidim, but I did not know, I did not know from the hasidim of Breslov. I requested from H”Y that he should summon for me Breslov hasidim, I thought that maybe in Jerusalem, maybe they exist in the world, in some place, Breslov hasidim, so I requested, and this... a long time passed by, and H”Y accepted my prayer and sent me, to Tiberius, Rabbi Yisroel Karduner.

I find the insight of Israel Odessar that all Orthodox rabbis are evil to be amazing. That that he originated the concept. It appears several times in the Lekutai Moaharan but it is of course ignored by all breslov rebbis except from him alone.
