Repentance is Always Possible(my comments and questions in bold italic)
My beloved like my own soul, Mr. Zalman Shazar, peace and true life.
I already wrote that I believe and hope that, because of the amazing divine providence that occurred on the intermediate Days of Passover, You will expierence great good and blessing in the matter of drawing near to the true tzaddik. Therefore together with that I feel obligated to open your ears to the truth that is in my heart, namley that concerning our project together I am complelty clean of all types of materlistic self interest for money and honor and the like, G-d forbid; rather only for the Lord alone. I am certain and rely on your exalted wisdom that your honor understands and knows this point with absolute certainty. The Blessed L-rd knows and bears witness that I am prepared and ready to sacrifice my life and money and everything I have for the sake of drawing any soul of Israel near to the Blessed L-rd or at least to put into him a thought of return [repentance] for even a single moment!
Rabbeinu [our Master and Teacher, Rebbe Nachman of Breslev] of blessed memory said: "Three things I was able to accomplish from the Blessed L-rd; 1) I already have broken your arrogance. 2) A sin will cause you suffering. It wont bring you any sense of pleasure. If you do commit a sin, it will be without hands and feet. (what does this mean?) 3) No more will you look at famous false leaders. Is this applicable to nanach philosphy about False leaders today?) You already have tasted from the hungarian wine". (what does this mean?) Even if one has done what he has done and transgressed what he has transgressed, even then the Blessed L-rd contracts Himself from his infinitude and Transcendance and sends the person hints to draw near to Him through various means that the L-rd arranges in His exaltedly hidden ways. For the Blessed One thinks thoughts so that the alienated one should not become more estranged from Him. But all these hints and all His calling to us is through the True Tzaddik, that we return to Him from every place we might be. From all sorts of obstacles, seductions, and wickedness in the heart. From all sorts of assualts from the husk of Amalek that can overpower the person and from every place that his mind and heart have strayed and erred.
The essential point that the deepest part of the heart of every member of Israel, mighty and fierce waters cannot extiguish, no matter what may occur to the person.
with a peacful departure and feelings of respect and endearment from the one who yearns and hopes to see you with a joyful heart.
