R’ Friedman says, “If He created chesed on the first day, why did He do it? Out of chesed? (teva ha’tov l’heitiv) That doesn’t make sense.”
And yet, I am looking at a letter that the Rebbe wrote to R’ Zalman Serebryanski in which he writes that the whole inyan of the beria was because teva ha’tov l’heitiv!
then what i shall say? i need you? (in place of i love you)?
so how do I know if I really want YOU? what part of the YOU am I looking at? the Essence of every bochur is a neshama but im not just going to marry anyone and if I marry someone because I like things about him, than I’m not really marrieng HIM! So… how is this reconciled? Please tell me, thank you!
