Rebbe Nachman’s Wisdom, Chapter 140

The Rebbe’s lesson on the verse (Ex. 6:9), “And they hearkened not to Moses because of impatience of spirit and cruel bondage,” appears in the second part of Lekutey Moharan #86.  The lesson states that the fact that one must work hard toward something implies a lack of faith.

When the Rebbe addressed this lesson to me I was quite shocked.  I always thought of myself as having faith, and could not understand his implication.

When I mentioned this to the Rebbe he answered me with some impatience, “You may have faith, but you have no faith in yourself.   Hast-di in dir kein Emunah nit.

The Rebbe told me this:

It is written (Zech. 4:10), “Who has despised the day of small things.”  The Talmud comments on this saying, “Why are the tables of the Tzaddikim despised in the Future World?  Because of their own smallness.”  That is, because they do not believe in themselves.

Rashi explains “their smallness” to mean that their faith was small.  But the exact words of the Talmud literally say, “the smallness they had in themselves.”  Hence, the Rebbe’s comment that their main lack was that of confidence in themselves.

The Talmud concludes by stating, “there were some among them who did not believe in G-d.”  If they were Tzaddikim, how is this possible?  But according to the Rebbe’s interpretation, this means that they did not have enough faith in G-d’s goodness to believe that they were important to Him.

This is why the Talmud speaks of their “smallness.”  Their lack of belief was really lack of faith in themselves.

This can also be fitted into Rashi’s commentary.

The main lesson here is that you must have faith in yourself.

Believe that even you are dear in the eyes of G-d.

A measure of G-d’s goodness is every individual’s importance to Him.

Experiencing humility does not mean that you should put yourself into a state of constricted consciousness, but rather that you should constantly ask G-d to help you achieve true humbleness. [This is discussed at length in the second part of Lekutey Moharan #22 and #72.]

Shortly after the Rebbe taught the above lesson, he gave another lesson on the section of the Zohar beginning, “Rabbi Shimon rejoiced.”  This appears in Lekutey Moharan #61.  There he states that Tzadikkim suffer from opposition because of their lack of faith in themselves.
