    The R. Levi Yitzchak story brought by Reb YY is written by Rabbi Zevin in p. V’eschanan p 472 as follows: 

    Returning home from his first visit to Reb Shmelke of Nikolsburg, Reb Levi Yitzchak of Berditchev was challenged by his father in law:  “And what did  you learn there?”“I learned that there is a Creator of the universe,” was the answer.  The father-in–law called for the maid and asked her:  “Do you know that there is a Creator of the universe?”“Why, of course!” she answered.Returned Reb Levi Yitzchak:  ”She says.  I know.”

    End of quoted story.

    I’ve read this story perhaps ten or 20 times and never really understood the point of the story.  I thought that maybe Reb Levi Yitzhak grew to know better than her that there is a Creator of the universe.  But it didn’t seem like such a strong story.  In this shir Reb Jacobson explained it so I understand the point much better.    Reb YY said - it’s the difference between saying “I know” and experiencing.

    "If you don't buy this now you will be miserable"

    Ate you saying that when then say "you deserve this new expensive thing!" I DON'T deserve it?

    The same daily davenning can become boring

    One can say the same about the same weekly parsha, the same daf gemora, even the same weekly sicha or maamer. 

    Only those are less frequent so, perhaps, not as boring. 

    But, we know that we always find new and deeper meanings in the parsha, the daf and the sicha. 

    So too, even tho daily davenning is more frequent and therefore potentially more boring,  the trick is to see ever deeper meaning in our relationship to those words.
