The foundation of all of Rebbe Nachman of Breslev's teachings is to know and to understand that everything that happens to us, both spiritually and materially, including what we ourselves do, whether deliberately or unwittingly, willful or under compulsion, all comes about through the decree of Hashem.
He knows full and well that this the only way to bring you to the ultimate good. The thing to do if you can not understand this is to cry out to Hashem about all the wrong you have done. “For the sins of man cloud his perception of Hashem’s workings in the world.” Pour out your heart and plead with him for your very life, for if you can not see to understand His workings then you are very close to a very real danger, the danger of thinking that you are in control.
Ask Him to help you get closer to His, the ultimate holy goal of recognizing His hand in your every affair. Hashem’s way of dealing with us in this respect is one of the most amazing wonders “ His understanding of us and our needs is prefect. When you start to see with understanding all that He does for us is good, even the seemingly bad, then you will be full of joy and awe as you stand and watch His leading and fulfilling of all your daily needs.
You will then look forward to this experience everyday. This is how we develop our relationship with Hashem, To thank Him and Praise Him for all he has and is and will be doing in our lives.
Then we will be full of joy and thanksgiving and will merit the full redemption.
