Really great, love this series it’s awesome.
Just didn’t really get the point of this episode, was it that G-d runs everything “hashgacha pratis” or was it that it has to be that way because G-d is always creating there was so much good stuff kinda lost the point. Reply

Great question! Yeah, there's a lot going on for a three minute video.

To answer your question - it's both! We're saying that God runs everything "hashgacha protis", and the Alter Rebbe says that this is how it must be because God is always creating everything.

Since God actively creates everything at every second, He must be highly aware of where everything is, what it's doing, and He gives the energy for what everything is about to do as well, so He's controlling everything - hashgacha protis.

It's both points you pointed out, one leading into the other. Reply

Both! One leads into the other. It describes a logical thought process: since God is energizing all things at every second, must mean that he's Orchestration it too - hashgacha protis Reply

Note December 16, 2020

Important note: The teaching of the Baal Shem Tov in Tanya that Hashem is constantly creating the world anew, isn't the only proof for Hashgacha Pratis (Divine Providence). Hashgacha Pratis is a fact either way.
See Likkutei Sichos Vol. 8 pages 277 - 284. Reply
