Torah lessons: Chumash: Matot-Massai, Revi'i with Rashi.
Tehillim: 119, 1-96.
Tanya: Ch. 7. In the true (p. 367) ...a "broken spirit." (p. 369).

There are two characteristic expressions in Chassidus:

(a) A Jew recognizes G‑dliness and senses the supra-natural. He needs no proofs for these.

(b) A Jew neither wants nor is able to be sundered from G‑dliness.1

The truth is that these two expressions are one and the same: A Jew recognizes G‑dliness and senses the higher-than-natural, and that is why he neither wants nor can he be torn away from G‑dliness.
