Minimizing Fasting

by Reb Gutman Locks at Mystical Paths

Following up on Akiva's post about fasting, here's some additional chassidic input...

Why minimize fasts today? Because the Redemption is going to come from spiritually motivated joy, not from fasting. Fasting is not a joyful experience. If you have the burning need to fast - to abstain from something that is spoiling you - then give up your sorrow. Look at the bright side of things and thank G-d for your portion. We are on our way to the greatest celebration ever and we should be preparing for the wondrous event.
