Once, some people came to Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi, the founder of Chabad, with a question: “You always tell your students to pray for a long time while meditating on how great G-d is, how much He has done and continues to do. But we can see they just pretend to meditate, so there is no point in you encouraging this practice, since no one really does it”.

The Rabbi answered: “If you say that they pretend, then we are in a good direction. Because when someone pretends something continuously, at the end, something will go inside him and change him”.

No one should say: “Since I’m not doing it for real, there is no point in doing it”. The above story teaches us that whatever the reason we are doing it, it effects a change inside us.
