For a Bochur to know his place. They don't come to a place to assimilate, but to be themselves and change the place to their level. Rebbe's wedding where the Rebbe RayaTz told this idea to the Bochurim. Letter about מדת ההשתוות.

The link between the Mitzvos between man and G-d and those between man and man are underscored in the recitation of הריני מקבל each day at the beginning of our prayer. Want attachedness with G-d, be connected and don'r be separated from fellow Yid. Why is discussed a little, it has to do with humility and openness.

The Jewish sigh is spiritually very meaningful it doesn't really matter what arouses it. Humility and admitting dependency upon G-d is very emancipating spiritually.

Entire entree. The greatness of the Alter Rebbe's Chssidim. Chosssid wouldn't complain but the Alter Rebbe asked him how are his affairs so he told that he is doing very poorly financially and the Rebbe reprimanded him: You do ( and worry about) your job and allow G-d to do (and worry about) his affairs: your material well-being.

Continued. Make the world around you light. Tanya Ch 41 discusses two levels in Mesiras Nefesh: Lower Level: Giving oneself to Him and being lost (even dying for) in Him. Higher level: To do for Him what HE needs (כבכיול) to bring Him down ליחדא קוב"ה ושכנתי' בתחתונים. This 2nd level we are not holding on by ourselves so we say בשם כל ישראל we have it as part of the collective Jew כנסת ישראל. The Rebbe has made this (putting another Yid ahead of you ברוחניות) into the basics ממש.

Mitzvos need שמירה which comes from מקיף; often the שמירה is the מצוה itself. This is why you should give Tzedaka along with every Mitzvah it is the שמירה. However even higher than צדקה is תורה (the מקיף and the פנימי are one -?-).

חסידות וסדר (Class One). Inside. Chassidus is the עיגול מבלי אשר ימצא ראש וסוף. Never the less the רביים and the חינוך the רביים gave for their חסידים involved absolute סדר. Two opposites. This class we read the text and expalined a little bit of... 1) the Seder by the רביים. 2) The השפעה hierarchy bu the Alter Rebbe.

חסידות וסדר (Class Two). This class diuscusse the Alter Rebbe's סדר in his letters, מאמרים and ניגונים. 1) Letters for soliciting funds for צדקה were given an orderly Torah thought (ועצ"ע). 2) His מאמרים; he was altogether in the sky and down here they were גוטע דרושים מסודרדיקע דרושים. 3) His ניגונים; the entire idea of נגינה (order beauty form) and עבודה (truth, inner struggle etc.) seem contradictory. Only the Alter Rebbe was able to bring the two together.

חסידות is נעוץ תחילתן בסופן וסופן בתחילתן and עיגולים מבלי אשר ימצא ראש וסוף. Three explanations: 1) שמן has three characteristics: A. cannot be eaten alone and is found in everything, B. שמן מפעפע בכולו C. שמן צף על כל משקין; Chassidus is as available and as illusive as שמן is based on these characteristics. 2) אין סוף למעלה עד אין קץ ולמטה עד אין תכלית this is not Hashem as he doesn't have divisions, but His Light, and it also is everywhere and nowhere (as is Chassidus). 3) the example of אור light; it changes everything and nothing at all.

סדר Though what Chassidus is is infinite; but we are finite. For us order is very necessary. Without order our ability to benefit from Chassidus which is עיגולים בלי ראש וסוף is curtailed.

Two Points: 1) The Rebbe considers the arrest imprisonment and exile as one long event (2 perspectives: Chassidim's and the Rebbe's own) 2) Chassidic "culture" (explained somewhat) learning and taking lessons to heart.

(1)This Hayom Yom is based a (rather famous) exchange between the Previous Rebbe and Our Rebbe about the question of מתן תורה in America. In this letter the Previous Rebbe separates two ideas: 1) In מקיף the Torah was given to the entire globe as one, 2) In פנימי what is closer to Sinai and Eretz Yisroel is more and what is farther is less. Accordingly "on the other side of the world" the Torah was not given on this level. As part of that discussion there is is this teaching of the Alter Rebbe about the question of gravity. He argues that wherever on earth you stand is to you "up" nit because of (the physical reason of) gravity (only) but [also and primarily] because the earth and the sky above it come from עיגולים which has no top and bottom. At the end of the class we briefly discuss that the earth is like a fetus where all detail is unseen and "curled up". (2) This is part two of the Hayom Yom about gravity. We discussed the ideas of עיגולים and יושר. We made the point that עיגולים is both קטנות and אין סוף. The earth is an עיגול and (we suggested) that it's יושר are people who walk upright on earth (Hayom Yom 13 Shvat) that adds the "גדלות" to the world. (3)
