Series: Human Self-Creation with the Kabbalah of Rebbe Nachman
In this moving lesson (Likutey Moharan 15) Rebbe Nachman reveals the true nature and experience of Yirat Hashem, Fear of G-d, which is the essence of Divine Service. The path to this ‘ultimate goal’ requires faith and trust, prayer, hitbodedut (intense meditative prayer) study, and connecting to Hashem via the mitzvot.
Genuine Yirah (fear) is living with the consciousness that only Hashem controls and directs the events of our lives and the events of the world. This authentic Yirah liberates us from baseless fears and false worries which tend to dominate our inner being—if we let them. Accordingly, true Yirat Hashem liberates us from the bonds of the unreal and allows us to reach our true spiritual potential.
- Fear of G-d
- The centrality of hitbodedut and prayer to spiritual growth
- The Hidden Light of Torah
- And how to take the next, freeing step to achieving the positive benefits of Yirat Hashem
