Mishivas Nefesh - Revival of the Soul
One needs constant motivation and encouragement to face the endless barrage of challenges that arise in one's spiritual journey. Meshivas Nefesh is a compilation of encouraging teachings from Rebbe Nachman and Rebbe Nosson on how to remain strong, motivated, and joyful in one’s service to Hashem. Rebbe Nachman taught that one has to be stubborn in one's spiritual pursuits and that one can overcome every battle. One of Rebbe Nachaman's strongest messages he instilled in his followers was to never give up! For even those who fell into the lowest depths can still return to Hashem, since Hashem's dearness for his children never ceases. Rebbe Nachman also taught that the ups and downs of life are a natural part of life and one should never despair from all of one's descents. Meshivas Nefesh was compiled by R' Alter Bezhiliansky of Teplik. In reading this sefer one can begin to understand the holiness of one's soul and the natural inner strength of every Jew.
