Nanach is the narrow bridge one must take in this world

Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman - the essential Rabbi Nachman. Saba Yisroel was the only Breslover in all of Tiberius, the whole city, men women and children mocked him and castigated him, yet he fortified himself with the holy teachings and methods of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov and managed to surmount their antagonism not only with resilience but with joy and exuberance. However when he saw that he had succumbed and ate on the fast of the 17th of Tamuz, he couldn't come to terms with how he had been let down to commit such a blunder, all of Judaism was reliant on him to bear the true tradition of Rabbainu and yet he can come to such a thing as not honoring completely the solemness of the fasting for the destruction of the temple? None of the teachings and techniques of Rabbi Nachman were able to restore his standing, he could find no solace no raison d'etre. All the teachings that had given him such formidable strength and resolve did nothing for him now, and were to no avail. It was only then that he was prepared from on high to receive the way of Rabbi Nachman which had never been divulged, not even to Rabbi Nussun, the way of dealing with those who had completely fallen from the faith Heaven forbid. Upon receiving the holy Petek, Saba Yisroel knew like never before that there absolutely was no despair in the world whatsoever, true he had heard and relied on those very words before, but previously he had known those words in the paradigm of Torah, and when a person falls Heaven forbid completely from the Torah then he will obviously be confronted with doubts in this dictum as well, but now he knew - even outside of the paradigm of Torah - he knew in the very paradigm of existence, in the paradigm of prayer, that there was no despair in the world whatsoever, and with this realization he was infused with supernal joy not of this world, and he was reset and prepared for the mission he was to accomplish initializing the entire world to the holy ways of Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman.
Today there are people that call themselves Breslov, who are really old, set in their ways may the Merciful One save us, they have everything figured out and packaged, they will pander to the masses their wisdoms and contrivances, but this is not Breslov, this is not truth. They have systems and balances, but none of that can withstand the rigors of today's turbulence. So they are just a facade of falsehood may the Merciful One save us. And likewise there are people on the other extreme who have rejected to some extent basic tenets of the Torah, and parade pridefully and staunchly claiming to be Nanach.
One must traverse in this world on a very narrow bridge... Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman!
