THE SEARCH FOR THE TRUE TZADDIK (PART 4)
Through drawing near to the True Tzaddik the poison of the serpent is stopped. And the opposite; through a false leader the poison gains strength. There is a Tzaddik who is so great in stature that he does not envy any other Tzaddik, not in this world and not in the next. He envies only G-d, akin to; he was jelous for my jelousy (stated about pinchas avenging G-d's honor in killing Zimri; Numbers 25:11) The main greatness of the tzaddik in his liftime and after his death is that he draws down and illuminates the very highest light and life force, meaning revelation of the blessed G-d, even in this physical world. Even into the very deepest and coursest places, until he is able to elevate even all those who have fallen and become extremely vulgerized. Until the verse is fulfilled; and every creature will know that you created him... (Rosh Hashanah prayerbook; Amidah) Through drawing near to the tzaddik we merit to faith and heresy is nullified.
The main connection is love. That one should love the tzaddik with a complete love, that his soul should be connected with his soul. One should be very careful to expel from within himself the spirit of foolishness, that fills his heart and clings to him. And by attaching to the true tzaddik, meaning that he loves the tzaddik with all his soul, through this he expels very quickly the foolish spirit from within himself. And through this he merits a broken heart. The relation of the true tzaddik to the world is like that of the head to the body, and the main rectification is when we merit to be close and connnected to the tzaddik as the body is the head, for the main vitatilty of all the limbs comes only from the head. We must seek and search very very much, in each and every generation, for the true tzaddik, with every type of search and with literal self sacrifice. For the main vitality and existence and perpetuation of every member of Israel is only through the true tzaddik. and through Israels search until they find him and draw near to him, through this we merit the complete redemption. And the song will be sung in the future. Happy is the one who merits and wait and yearns for this....
