I have just returned from the heavenly court where I received a new
and sublime soul.
S.A. Horodezky, Leaders of Hasidism, quoted in: Michael Shire, The Jewish Prophet, P.83.
Chana Rochel (Hannah Werbermacher) realized that she tapped the wellspring
of her identity and powers not from what she wasn't, not by contrasting,
but simply by being who she was, a creation of the Will of God. A manifestation
of Divine Intelligence. "I am grateful that God created me as I am." (she
used to say). What a revelation. What simplicity of absolute faith and
