Talking to God
“When the Mashiach / Messiah will come, the people of the world will be in a state of confusion. But someone who spends time everyday alone talking to God will be as if waking up from a nap with a settled mind.”
- Rebbe Nachman of Breslov
The second step in attaining a settled mind is by spending time everyday talking to God in solitude. When a person spends time alone talking to God, one can truly settle one’s mind as we open ourselves up to the infinite. In fact Rebbe Nachman says that when a person has an open heart, whatever he experiences in talking to God is just under the level of prophecy.
God is always communicating with us in a personal way – and through this Hitbodedut of talking to God, we open ourselves up to the relationship and communication. When a person truly does this, they will experience a new life with a new mind and open heart.
