Rebbe Nachman of Breslov taught…
Did you ever notice that
What does this mean to me?
|Rebbe Nachman told a parable about trying to stay spiritually sane in a crazy world—The Tainted Grain (click here to read the tale.) But the root of the idea is found in the words of the prophet Isaiah: “And the truth is absent; and he who turns from evil is considered mad…” The sages taught in the Talmud that this is just one of the symptoms of spiritual ill-health that will descend upon the world as we approach the time of Moshiach. When the world is crazy, I have no choice but to be willing to be considered foolish or mad if I refuse to follow along with the mood and opinions of the time. It requires courage to keep on the right path even when the world around me believes that I am wrong.|
