Translated by Rabbi Avraham Greenbaum
THE ESSENTIAL RABBI NACHMAN
There must be questions
There are many searching questions about G-d. But it is only fitting and proper that this should be so. Indeed, such questions enhance the greatness of G-d and show His exaltedness. G-d is so great and exalted that He is beyond our ability to understand Him. It is obviously impossible for us , with our limited human intelligence, to understand His ways . Inevitably there are things that baffle us, and this is only fitting. If G-d’s ways were in accordance with the limits of our meager understanding, there would be no difference between His understanding and ours, and this is inconceivable.

“And the way to sing the song of joy is by seeking the good in all people, especially in ourselves. Each good point is one more note in the song of life!”
