TORAH & MITZVOS – LOVE – UNITY
It is well known, the saying of Hillel, that the entire Torah is the Mitzvah of Love – and the purpose of love is to create unity – hence in actual fact, every Mitzvah is only a mechanism to this end.
TORAH – FAITH
Generally speaking, as we know that the entire Torah is given in a general and then details mechanism – the generality of Torah is faith and the specifics, relates to understanding.
As we are born we come innately with faith.
FAITH / JEWS
In fact the Jewish people are called, believers the children of believers.
This is the true definition of a Jew, according to the Torah of truth.
Once a child reaches the age of education, then what was in a general form as belief, becomes knowledge and practice.
Furthermore the belief which by nature is beyond a human (as we believe in something which is higher than us) becomes so integrated, that it becomes us.
Now this means not we then lack belief, for once we achieve an integrated belief, a higher notion of the Divine enters.
This is the eternal pattern – integrating belief, then finding a higher belief, in a never-ending cycle.
FAITH / WISDOM
The wiser a person is, for example Moses, who was the essence of wisdom, yet at the same time had the greatest faith – for the brain itself recognizes, that there is an infinite brain (compared to which, all brains are no different to a brianless rock.)
This parallels man’s daily service for our first prayer is Modeh Ani – in which we humbly acknowledge faith – then we have the Pisuikie Dizimra – the songs of praise, which go more into details, and then we reach Shemoina Esrie, in which we achieve complete humble subjugation to the Divine.
PRAEY / WORK
We follow prayer with work which is the sweetest work, for as we are dealing with the lowest rung – the physical world, yet by using these things for holiness, we transform darkness to light – and there is no greater light, than that which follows darkness.
LIFE / GOD
Furthermore, life is sweet, for we go with the Divine assistance, which makes all great.
DAAS / INTEGRATION
The ultimate goal is taking the infinite Divine GPS (inspiration) and then allowing them to not only become calmly effected (within you) but to furthermore, through the agency of Daas (the most core integrating facility of a person) have this be you.
YOU / GOD
The entire goal is the Divine should not be beyond, but you, through the agency of Torah (and as when Moshiach comes, the Torah will come directly from God – hence not only the general Torah, but the personal.)
