THE POWER OF SPEECH – If you know how

Speech has tremendous power. If you know how, you can even whisper to a gun so that it cannot shoot.

THE POWER OF SPEECH – Mother of children

Speech is a “mother of children” (Psalms 113:9) . Just as a mother always stays with her child and never forgets him even if he goes to the filthiest of places, so the power of speech never leaves a person even if he finds himself in the filthiest of places.

Even one who has sunk to the lowest level can always remind himself of G-d’s presence if he speaks words of holiness: Torah and prayer. Regardless of his situation, he should try to speak words of Torah and prayer, meditate and speak to G-d, and he should discuss matters of faith with his teacher and friends. This way he will always be able to remind himself of G-d’s presence regardless of how far he is from G-d, even if he falls to the “filthy places”. His faculty of speech will not desert him, and he will never be able to forget G-d.

Understand the tremendous power of speech. It can save you from destruction.

Likutey Moharan I, 78

THE POWER OF SPEECH – The hammer

A certain king sent his son far away to study. The son eventually returned to the king’s palace fully versed in all the arts and sciences. One day the king told his son to take a particular stone that was as big as a millstone and bring it up to the top floor of the palace. But the stone was so heavy that the prince could not even lift it up. He was very upset that he could not fulfill his father’s wish.

Eventually the king said to his son, “Did you really imagine that I meant you to do the impossible and carry the stone just as it is up there? Even with all your wisdom, how were you supposed to do such a thing? That was not what I meant. I wanted you to take a big hammer and smash the stone into little pieces. This is how you will be able to bring it up to the top floor.”

In the same way, G-d commands us to “lift our heart with our hands up to G-d in the heavens” (Lamentations 3:41 ) . Our heart is a “heart of stone” (Ezekiel 36:26) , a very heavy stone. There is no possible way to raise it to G-d except by taking a hammer and breaking and smashing the heart of stone.

The “hammer” is speech!

THE POWER OF SPEECH – Guard your tongue

Speech is the breath of the lips of the Holy One, blessed be He. To abuse it is to turn it into a “raging storm­ wind” (Psalms 148:8). This raging storm wind is the great accuser – the source of all man’s trials and challenges. This wild spirit erodes man’s very flesh. It is the root of all the slander, falsehood and evil that people speak about each other. It is called the “end of all flesh” (Genesis 6:13 ) because it wastes and destroys man’s flesh and his very life. All this is the result of abusing speech.

Likutey Moharan I, 38

THE POWER OF SPEECH – Guard your tongue

Speaking derogatorily about other people reinforces the hold of fantasy and illusion over us. When people use bad language and speak derogatorily about others, their spiritual awareness and understanding are withdrawn from them and they fall from the love of G-d and descend into animalistic passions and desires. The source of these passions and desires is man’s faculty of imagination, which is part of his animal nature. Imagination feeds on falsehood and slander and is directly opposed to the faculty of memory with which we keep our true situation in this life and our eternal destiny in the forefront of our minds.

Those who abuse language fall into forgetfulness, which is the death of the heart. Their heart dies within them and they never remember that the true goal of our life in this world is the eternal life of the world to come. Such people are dead even in their lifetime, because they have no conception of their true goal and purpose.

THE POWER OF SPEECH – Guard your tongue

Never let a word of wickedness leave your mouth. Don’t ever say you will be wicked or commit a sin, even if you mean it as a joke and have no intention of carrying out your words.

The words themselves can be very damaging. They can compel you to fulfill them even though you did not mean them seriously.

This was what caused King Jehu’s downfall, because he said, “Ahab served Baal a little, but Jehu will serve him very much” ( II Kings 10:18 ). When King Jehu said these words, he had no intention of committing idolatry. He said them only to trick the Baal worshipers, as explained in the following verse. Yet these words were his downfall, because he later came to commit idolatry.

From this the Talmud learns that “a covenant is made with the lips” ( Sanhedrin 102a). You should therefore be very careful about what you say.

THE POWER OF SPEECH

Prayer must be spoken out in actual words – literally. It is not enough to think the prayers. It is true that G-d knows what we are thinking. But the words have to be spoken, because speech is the vessel with which we receive the flow of blessings. According to our words, so is the blessing we receive.

One who perfects his speech can receive abundant blessings through the vessels he forms with his words. This is why we must actually articulate our prayers with our mouths.

HITBODEDUT MEDITATION AND PERSONAL PRAYER – When Mashiach comes

There are certainly worthy people who do not practice Hitbodedut. But I call them confused. When Mashiach suddenly comes and calls them, they will be disoriented and confused.

But those who practice Hitbodedut will be like a person who wakes up from a restful sleep with a calm, settled mind. This is how we will be when Mashiach comes: our minds will be calm and settled, without panic or confusion.

HITBODEDUT MEDITATION AND PERSONAL PRAYER – Water wears away stone

Even if many days and years pass and it seems as if you have accomplished nothing with your prayers and conversations with G-d, don’t give up! Every single word makes an impression.

“Water wears away stone” (Job 14: 19 ) . It may seem that water dripping on hard stone could not make any impression, yet when water drips on stone continuously for many years, it can literally wear a hole in the stone. We actually see this.

Even if your heart is like stone and it seems that your words of prayer are making no impression at all, still, as the days and years pass, your heart of stone will also be softened. For: “Water wears away stone”.

HITBODEDUT MEDITATION AND PERSONAL PRAYER – Hitbodedut at night

The main time for Hitbodedut is at night. Seclude yourself and express yourself to G-d. Speak with all your heart and search out the goodness in your soul. Find the good points that are inside you and cleanse them of all evil until you pour out your heart like water before G-d. This is the way to subdue all lust and desire and attain true happiness. You will develop a good memory, and thus you will constantly remember the world to come, never losing sight of the end goal and purpose of this life. This is the way to repent and return to G-d.

HITBODEDUT MEDITATION AND PERSONAL PRAYER – Hitbodedut at night

The best time for Hitbodedut is at night , when everyone is asleep. Ideally you should go to a place outside the city and follow a solitary path where people don’t even go during the day.

Empty your heart and mind of all your mundane preoccupations and then work to nullify all your negative traits, one after the other, until in the end you nullify all sense of self completely. First work on one character trait, then another and another, until you reach the point where you are free of any self-centeredness and any sense of independent existence.

You must be as nothing in your own eyes. Then you will be worthy of attaining true self-nullification and your soul will be merged with its root. The whole universe will be merged with you in your Source. You and everything with you will be merged in the Unity of G-d.

HITBODEDUT MEDITATION AND PERSONAL PRAYER – Your own place

It is good to choose somewhere to sit day and night engaged in Torah, prayer and devotion. When you need to eat, run to some house and quickly grab a piece of bread or the like to appease your hunger and then go back to serving G-d.

HITBODEDUT MEDITATION AND PERSONAL PRAYER – Your own place

It is very good to have your own room where you can be alone and engage in Torah study, prayer, meditation and private conversation with G-d. Even just to sit in such a room is also highly beneficial.

If you do not have your own room, you can still seclude yourself and talk to G-d. You can make your own room under your Tallit. Just drape your Tallit over your eyes and speak to G-d as much as you desire.

You can also seclude yourself with G-d when you lie in bed under the covers. This was King David’s custom, as it is written: “Each night I converse from my bed” (Psalms 6:7).

You can also sit down with some book and let others imagine you are studying when in fact you are speaking to G-d. There are many other methods you can use if you truly want to practice Hitbodedut. Nothing is loftier than Hitbodedut, which is the root and foundation of holiness, purity and repentance.

Sichot Haran #274-5

Rabbi Nachman of Breslov
“It is a great mitzvah to be happy.”

HITBODEDUT MEDITATION AND PERSONAL PRAYER – Out in the meadows

Hitbodedut is best done outside the town in a place where grass grows, because the grass will awaken your heart.

How good it is to pray to G-d and meditate in the meadows amidst the grass and the trees. When a man goes out to the meadows to pray, every blade of grass, every plant and flower all enter his prayers and help him, putting power and strength into his words.

Likutey Moharan II, 11; Sichot Haran #227

HITBODEDUT MEDITATION AND PERSONAL PRAYER – The spider’s web

You want to speak to G-d but find it hard? You are like a warrior who girds his loins to overcome a mighty wall but when he comes to the gate, he finds it blocked with a spider’s web. Could anything be more foolish than to run away from the battle because the gate is covered with a spider’s web?

The main thing is speech. With speech you can win every battle. It is possible to meditate in thought, but the most important thing is to express yourself in words.

You may find it difficult to speak to G-d. You may also find it difficult to speak to a true Tzaddik. This is only because you are shy and lethargic and lack sufficient boldness.

This is silly! Here you are, ready to use your speech to overcome the great battle against the evil urge inside you. You are on the verge of victory: you are ready to break down the walls and open the gates with your words.

Should you hold back because of a minor barrier caused by a lack of confidence? This is nothing but a spider’s web covering the walls you want to break down with your words.

Sichot Haran #232

Rabbi Nachman of Breslov
“It is a great mitzvah to be happy.”

HITBODEDUT MEDITATION AND PERSONAL PRAYER – A settled mind

It is a great achievement to be able to settle your mind for a period of time each day and regret what you must. Not everyone is able to attain mental calm and tranquility for a time every day. The day flies past and is gone, and a person finds that not once in all his life did he have time to settle his mind.

Make every effort to set aside time to review your life calmly. Think about all your different activities and interests and how you behave. Consider carefully if this is how you should spend your days.

Someone who does not meditate cannot attain wisdom. He may occasionally be able to think clearly, but not for any length of time. His power of concentration remains weak and unsustainable . He will never realize the folly of this world.

But one who has a clear, settled mind can understand that everything is madness and vanity.

Sichot Haran #47

Rabbi Nachman of Breslov
“It is a great mitzvah to be happy.”

HITBODEDUT MEDITATION AND PERSONAL PRAYER – The power of desire

When you speak to G-d, make it a habit to express your longing and yearning to extricate yourself from evil and attain true good. Putting your longing into words is the way to draw your spiritual power from the realm of the potential and possible to the realm of the real and actual.

Longing and yearning alone create potential spiritual power, but the words of your prayers and conversations with G-d bring this spiritual power into the realm of the actual so that it becomes realized in actual fact. This is the way to accomplish what you yearn for.

Letters of Torah are present throughout the Creation. By expressing and articulating your yearning and desire in words, you invest these letters with new vitality and power for good. This brings you new life and strength and draws goodness and blessing into all the worlds. Numberless souls are stirred to make their own return to G-d, all through your words of prayer to your Maker.

How precious are the longing and yearning that you express before G-d. The main thing is actually to articulate the words. Make this your regular practice and devote time to it every day. This will benefit the entire world.

Likutey Moharan I, 31

HITBODEDUT MEDITATION AND PERSONAL PRAYER – Today I am starting

During your Hitbodedut, it is good to say: “Today I am starting to attach myself to You!”

Make a new start each time, because everything that comes later is always in accordance with the beginning.

No matter what happens, it is always good to make a new start each time and say, “Today I am beginning…” If things were already good, now they will be even better! And if they were not good before, then you certainly need to start anew.

HITBODEDUT MEDITATION AND PERSONAL PRAYER – The silent scream

You can shout and scream with a “still, small voice” without anybody hearing you. Everybody can do this. Imagine the sound of such a scream in your mind. Imagine the shout exactly as it would sound. Concentrate on hearing the scream in your mind until you are literally screaming with this soundless “still, small voice” – and nobody else will hear anything.

This is actually a scream and not mere imagination. Just as there are channels that bring the sound from your lungs to your lips, so there are nerves that bring the sound to the brain. You can draw the sound through these nerves, literally bringing it into your head. When you do this, you are actually shouting inside your brain.

When you imagine this scream in your mind, the sound actually rings inside your brain. You can stand in a crowd of people screaming this way and no- one hears you.

It could be that when you do this, a faint sound may escape your mouth. This is because the sound traveling through the nerves to the brain can also activate the vocal organs, and they may then produce some sound. But it will be very faint.

It is much easier to shout in this way without words. When you wish to express yourself in words, it is harder to hold the voice in the mind without letting a sound escape your lips. Without words, it is much easier.

Sichot Haran #16

Rabbi Nachman of Breslov
“It is a great mitzvah to be happy.”
