The Jewish orthodox have a view as follows:
"The Chassidut explains that the notion that God can be find "inside," meaning "in me, myself" is applicable only to tzadikim, to righteous and holy people who have not lost their connection with the Almighty. But, for a ba'al teshuvah, for one whose connection with the Almighty has been severed, either because of his or her non-religious background, or because of improper conduct, to find God requires going "outside," outside of my own self." 
Now what are the Chassidut doing stating that when the word 'religion' does not even exist in biblical Hebrew? Where on earth are they coming from?
Having a sacred union with the LORD God as nothing to do with religion or its doctrines; in my experience. Also seeking outside of the self will not show you the narrow gate within you.
However, the philosophy of the chassidut does indicate why tzidikim had a job to do to help others to seek within. To ensure that more righteous and holy people come to be. In my experience this only comes to be; due to healing the self and that is what we have been sharing for decades.
It is due to healing the self that the gateways within open up. Hence, why we encourage people to become healers of self and in so doing, they also heal their nations. When you find within, then you are given the ability to see outside of yourself. Then you can see his face. As the Son of God said 'Blessed are the pure of heart for they shall see God'. How does one become pure of heart? By healing it.
As St Clement of Alexandria wrote correctly, 'Only the pure can see purity'.
Let us call for a healing revolution to put an end to the wars between the nations.
As the LORD God said 'Healing is the get out of jail card. Healing is the path to salvation and love is the way'.
He is saying Hashem, Hashem.
Love beyond measure
