This week on BreslovCampus, Meir Elkabas discusses the Torah portion, Parshat Vayigash with insights from Rebbe Nachman of Breslov and Reb Noson. In this parsha Yosef went through a lot of trouble to conceal from his brothers the real reasons for his actions. Reb Meir explains how when the tzaddikim want to give a gift and lasting blessing, sometimes they have to disguise what they are doing, and even hiding the process via strife and controversy.
When we experience tribulations in our connection to the true tzaddikim we can ask: If this is real strife, is the Tzaddik really pushing me away? Or, is there a deeper reason behind my difficulties?
