Reb Noson teaches that in order to reach emes, truth one must firmly believe and state “Ain Ode Milvado,” There is Nothing But Him. This is the cornerstone for everything in our lives. When we realize that all of our happenings, tests, triumphs, successes, and failures are from the Creator himself, then we can reach emes.
No where is this more obvious than parnasa, livelihood. After all, it is Hashem himself who promises to sustain us. We are only fooled into thinking that it is our boss.
The more we can reach a level of Ain Od Milvado, the more we can connect to the Creator and to ourselves.
