No Need to Search

Once, an individual came to Rimanov seeking the counsel of R. Tzvi Hersh.

Seeker: “I wish to do teshuvah,”

Rebbe: “Who is stopping you?”

Seeker: “I am looking for the source of the evil in order to uproot it.”

Rebbe: “Is this why you came to Rimanov?”

Seeker: “To Rimanov?! I am searching throughout the whole world..”

The Rebbe laughed and replied: “You are wasting your time. Don’t search for the evil in Rimanov or anywhere else – the source of the evil is in you, yourself.”
