Tanya In Simple English Chapter 35Now we can understand in greater detail the word “To Do” (that the Mitzvahs is very easy…) – in addition let us understand somewhat why God actually created the Benoini and why their soul must come to the world and place itself in an animal soul from the Kelipah of Sitra Achara as it is impossible to get rid of it throughout one’s life and dislodge it from her location in the left side of the heart… and one cannot cause that its thoughts or lusts should not enter ones mind – for the essence of the animal soul of the Kelipah is always strong, as it was when it was born – it is only that her garments do not take over the body as mentioned earlier…. and if this is the case, why would their soul come down to this world to work so hard to fight against the Yetzer Hara, and yet not be able to conquer it? But may this be their comfort, may this be a double comfort! may their hearts rejoice in God who dwells within them in their Torah study and prayer by prefacing the words of the prophetic child in the Zohar (Parshas Balak) who spoke on the verse “That the wise man’s eyes are in his head.” Queries the child “where else should be the eyes of the person be etc..?” rather the verse is teaching us that a person should not walk six feet without a Yarmulkah as the Shechina, the Divine presence rests on their head, and everybody who is wise…. they realize, that this Shechina light, like a candle, can only burn as a continuous flame if there is oil to fuel its fire – in other words, the body of man is like a wick and the Divine soul is like the flame… And King Solomon is telling us: ensure that you have oil… which are good deeds so your soul can be elevated. Now the explanation of this idea namely that he compares the light of the soul to the light of a candle – which needs oil for the wick to burn, similarly the Shechina light of rests on the body of a person when one does good deeds and it is not enough just to have a soul alone which is a part of God in order for the oil to to draw the soul in the Body…. as the reason for this is because the soul of man, even a completely righteous person who serves God from a fear and love and enjoyment – nonetheless this person is not completely one was God to become part of the Divine light – in actual fact the soul is a separate entity who loves and fears God… however when a person does a Mitzvah and good deed as this is the will of God and God and His will are one – and as it is His will which is the source of all the energy for all the universes and creations – as it descends from the infinity to create matter from non-matter and entities that see themselves independent of their source (and hence can exist without being subsumed by the identity of their source) – as such they are separate entities, whereas the Commandments / the Mitzvos are the desire of God which is His essential will and has no concealment at all!The energy in them is not separate to God, rather it is one with Him and His will. Now the idea to dwelling of the Shechina is the revelation of Godliness and His Divine lights in something – in other words to say that this thing is now part of the light of God. And is subsumed within Him for then the person is one with God.But whatever is not totally subsumed within God’s light does not feel and shine in then. Even a completely righteous person that connects with a great love to God, nonetheless there is no thought that can grasp God at all – for the truth of God is that there is no other entity besides God And as such the person who is an independent identity and not subsumed… his thought cannot actually grasp God in any way shape or form – therefore God is not dwelling within Him except by the means of fulfilling the Mitzvos, which is the will of God and His wisdom without any concealments. Now when a person studies Torah, then his soul which is His Godly soul with it’s two inner garments which is his thoughts and speech go into the light of God’s unity – this is the dwelling of the Shechina on His Divine soul as it says that even one person that studies Torah, the Shechina is with Him. However in order to draw down the light and the revelation of the Shechina on his body and animal soul which is in his body a person needs to use the agency of the body and do the physical Mitzvah. Then the energy of the body becomes consumed and subsume within the light and will with a a complete unity. This is the third garment of the Godly soul (action) and then also the power of the life giving animal-soul of his body from Kelipah transform from evil to good, and becomes literally holiness like his Godly soul, as it is the one that is doing the Mitzvah (for without it the animal soul the Godly soul cannot be effective in the body at all – as it is spiritual and the body is physical – and the combination between the two of them is the life giving animal soul which is in the blood of man.) And though the essence of the animal soul and his heart which is it’s negative emotions has not been consumed into holding us as they are Tanya In Simple English Chapter 35Now we can understand in greater detail the word “To Do” (that the Mitzvahs is very easy…) – in addition let us understand somewhat why God actually created the Benoini and why their soul must come to the world and place itself in an animal soul from the Kelipah of Sitra Achara as it is impossible to get rid of it throughout one’s life and dislodge it from her location in the left side of the heart… and one cannot cause that its thoughts or lusts should not enter ones mind – for the essence of the animal soul of the Kelipah is always strong, as it was when it was born – it is only that her garments do not take over the body as mentioned earlier…. and if this is the case, why would their soul come down to this world to work so hard to fight against the Yetzer Hara, and yet not be able to conquer it?

Now when a person studies Torah, then his soul which is His Godly soul with it’s to garments which is the his thoughts go into the light of God’s unity – this is the dwelling of the Shechina on His Divine soul as it says that even one person that swells and studies Torah, the Shechina is listening however water draw it down from light and the revelation of the skin on his body and animal soul which is in his body that gets it like the person needs to use the agency of the body and do the physical Mitzvah. Then the energy of the body when does this consume and subsume within the Divine light and will but the complete unity the third garment of the Godly soul and then also the power of the Godly soul sorry the power of the life giving animal-soul of his body from Kelipah transform from evil to good and becomes literally holiness like his Godly soul, as it is the one that is doing the Mitzvah for without it the Godly cannot be effective in the body at all – as it is spiritual and the body is physical and the combination between the two of them is the life giving animal soul which is in the blood of man just in his heart and the entire body and though the essence of the animal soul and his heart which is it’s negative emotions has not been consumed into holiness nonetheless as they are humbled – therefore the holiness and they say Amen many and they desire to do a Mitzvah through the power of the overpowering Godly soul which controls the heart at this time (and as such the Kelipah are considered sleeping) and therefore this does not prevent the Shechina from entering the body at this moment – in other words, the power of the animal soul which is in the act of doing the Mitzvah becomes subsumed in the light of God and in a complete unity with it.And through this it draw down a day to the general life giving soul within the body and also hovering over the entire physical body from his head to foot. And this is why it says that the Shechina dwells on the head and whenever you have 10 people the Shechina is there. Now every time there is the revelation of the Shechina light this does not cause a change in God and nor an addition as stated in Sanhedrin that an antagonist said to Rabban Gamliel “You say that whenever you have 10 people the Shechina dwells… well how many Shechinas do you have?” and he answered him with an example of the light of the Sun that can go into many windows and the wise shall understand.[9/26, 8:24 PM] Z: Ask not what will I regret, ask only, what will I celebrate
