    You mentioned today a person sensitive to emes can sense when a tzaddik has no metzius, no ego, etc and therefore can be like Moshe.
      At 30 years old, after a frei upbringing, I became convinced by a Kuzari type proof that  Mattan Torah happened, historically speaking, and therefore was emes and  binding. (Obviously I already believed in  Hashem, step 1). But then I became aware of the "31 flavors" of yiddishkeit (know about Baskin Robbins?) from left to right..I proceeded to go the smorgasborg of the different flavors of   yiddishkeit. 
      Although I  already knew some Lubavitchers, and all flavors are kosher, it was only when I walked into  770, even as a totally green ignorant budding bt, and saw the  Rebbe that it  became a no brainer. It was obvious that  this was the manhig hador. 
      See what ffbs are missing! 
      Gut Shabbos

    Not only the sea split but so did the heavens

    And even  a handmaid saw up there what no novi ever saw.

    So why didn't we also  sing a song about the  heavens splitting, a more fantastic event  than water splitting? After all cynics say it was explainable and  just low tide.

    Maybe because we are physical bodies  in this physical world and can better relate to  the miracle of  physical water splitting for us, especially cuz it saved us physically, than we can to miracles about supernatural levels we cannot easily or normally relate  to. 

    Was it  a recognizable  miracle for the  fish in the yam suf? The sea is only a  cover for us, not for them. For them a recognizable miracle might be  to somehow be able to  see the land split,  like for Korach. If they saw that maybe the fish would sing (tho all creatures do in Shir Hashirim).

    Real emuna does not come before the full exhaustion  of using our seychel, that's stam immature belief like an obedient child. True emunah comes only after the  full exhaustion of all the faculties of our mind, and then going beyond that realizing that  there is much truth behind that which our mind can possibly ever grasp.

    A bracha draws down from above, doesn't create

    The goodness.

    There are water towers up high everywhere. When we open the faucet we draw down, literally, the water from the reservoir waiting to  be drawn down. Like a  bracha. Made by ourselves for ourselves or others or given to others. 

    There are also fresh water rivers, lakes and underground waters, but that's a  different story.
