Great Regulars: But on his way to explaining the "deep way"

of Jewish mysticism, Reb Zalman spoke with you about angels or devas and here the dialogue really became exciting because I saw, Your Holiness, we all saw how fascinated you were with angels; you wouldn't let go of the topic. Reb Zalman wanted to explain the four worlds of Jewish mysticism, the four worlds of prayer, but you kept him in the second world, the world of formation, the world of imagination--and dreams are there, and feelings are there, and angels are there, messengers who mediate in the imagination between the loftiest heights of pure thought and the ground and senses where we live as bodies.
