“God blew your soul into you. It is not a created entity. Your soul is ‘of Himself’. The soul/neshamah is an essence [atzmi]. Thus there is no limit to what the soul can reach, and to what it can comprehend.“

Cause and effect is much closer to our understanding than ‘something from nothing’ [yesh mi’ein].
The source is called ein - nothing. A non-entity relative to the yesh - something.
Something gets created by intention. The ‘nothing’ had to focus and say, ‘I want to make this thing’.
This makes for a novel presence - a thing that cannot be traced back to a prior sense.
This is like something given from the hand to a stone to make it fly.
