In Likutey Moharan, Lesson 18, Rebbi Nachman explains that everything has a goal, everything in creation has a purpose, The ultimate goal and purpose of creation is the delight of Olam Habaa, the World to Come. This delight is bound up with the experience of being very close to Hashem.
But no one can really understand this except for the tzaddikim. This is why it’s so important that we have a connection to the true tzaddik, because when we do, we begin to understand a glimmer of what the purpose of life is.
We connect to the tzaddik. We become more compassionate. We begin to view ourselves through the mirror of the tzaddik’s teachings. Then we begin to understand a small taste of the ultimate goal.
Bonus: This makes life delightful in and of itself.
May you have a day in which you master your connection to the tzaddikim.
