Holiness of eating


Rabbi Nachman revealed that the Tzadik's eating is even higher than his conjugating.

When a person engages in a relationship the union draws down a soul or souls from Heaven. Great tzaddikim are even active in the actual choosing and drawing of the desired soul. Here we see that the main act is conducted in the actuality of this world, drawing from the supernal. In contradistinction when a person eats, grinding the food, pulverizing it, and ultimately completely negating it. It seems to me that a Tzaddik performing this would also come to such a consciousness of being completely abnegated before HY, and in this way the Tzadik draws the supernal life from the food, as he meets the food in complete negation before the Ein Sof, drawing the holy letters which stand out - receiving life directly from the Ein Sof. This is an act of complete abnegation to HY.

Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman!
