This is what learned from Rabbi Gordon in the introduction of The Tanya.
Tanya means the strength of the Jew. This recognizes the system of the souls.
This is how the two souls work.
We should never say I am what I am.
It is what it is.
People can change.
People can transform themselves.
This is the message of Tanya.
The Tanya is made of five books.
Where the problem is the powers of soul.
What we feel and what understand is the hard part.
Even your emotions can change into the direction you want to take them.
One cannot yell one into understanding.
It takes time and disciple to understand.
That what you love and that what you fear can grow as you study G-d’s word.
Do not think Judaism is unattainable.
You don not have to be Rabbi to achieve this.
Every man, woman, boy, and girl can be a connected Jew.
Judaism is for everyone.
Thought, word, and deed is attainable.
The heart is feelings.
Feelings can change.
It is hard, but it can happen.
It is hard for me
Yeshua came to us to get our hearts right. This is what tripped all of us up.
We have two souls the G-dly and the evil inclination.
The Tanya is the lesson plan on how to overcome the evil inclination.
Yeshua is teaching us the same thing.
