Rabbi Nachman says something amazing. He says that there is a powerful force in the world that is gradually pulling everything back to it's Source in Hashem and when a person lets himself or herself flow with and become aligned with that invisible force, you will make your soul very happy.
When we take a minute to think about nice stuff, we're also jumping onto that path that is carrying us and all created things back to our Source.
Hashem is everything that ever was, is , or will be good and sweet. Hashem is joy, calmness, nostalgia, warm memories, pleasant feelings and much more! Remember, Hashem also loves to 'hide' in the mundane. So the next time you feel a bit of pleasure from seeing your kid doing something silly in the mirror, or you hear your spouse humming a tune while doing a chore. STOP AND THINK: "This is Hashem!" The next time you feel nostalgic while you flip through some old photographs: STOP AND THINK: "This is Hashem!"
Now is the moment that your loving Creator is beckoning to you to join Him as he leads His whole creation back to it's perfected state of bliss.
