The seventh beggar, the lame one, did not arrive. As Rabbi Nachman held, he will come with the Messiah. But upon reviewing the blessings, or educational goals, one wonders if there is something to add: To be born anew each moment, to live and appreciate simplicity, to speak in order to unify good deeds, to have helping strength and compassion, to pursue truth, to have strength to liberate by relating as a whole human being — these are the blessings. Truly, only the Messiah can enlarge upon them.
