One of the commentors on the last post noted that we've (actually I've) been sidetracked into a more physical rather than spiritual approach, and perhaps should spend a little more time learning. I'll accept that criticism - and took off from preparing a post tonight to spend the time learning chassidus.
Therefore, I need your help. R. Nati has been offline and unable to contribute any posts, so I'm soliciting your help by providing some guest posts. If you think you have some ideas or posts you'd like to share with the Mystical Paths readership, send your guest post to -- akiva .. at ~~ mpaths ^^ dot '' com. (What's with all the funny characters? That's to fool programs which scour web sites for addresses to add to their spam mailing lists.)
R. Nati is on his way north to a series of kevrai tzaddikim tonight at the instruction of his rav. Yesterday he was in a serious car accident, hit from behind and pushed into the path of an oncoming bus. Thank G-d, only cuts and bruises and lots of crunched metal. Today, after hobbling to yeshiva, he left with some others. They stopped on the curb to light a cigarettes as he stepped forward to cross the street, a taxi whizzed around the corner and hit him. Fortunately he was wearing his heavy coat and carrying his seforim carry bag, the taxi dented his gemora and Likkeuti Mohoran and threw him about 10 meters. Again, more cuts and bruises, no broken bones, thank G-d. So he's off for a little spiritual introspection, some cheshbon nefesh. Any tefilot (prayers) for the refuah shalayma of Rav Nathaniel Levi ben Chana Sarah gratefully accepted.
