“Mind & Emotions” p106


“The mind/sechel says, ‘what’s the point?’  A point is tiny, but that is the whole thing!“

For the emotions something that is appealing is good.  For the mind, there is discernment - not everything appealing is good, and what is good should be pursued. 

And then there is a level of mind that is above relating to the emotions.  A level that is closer to ‘the thing itself’ by contrast to ‘what it stands for’.

The level of mind that relates to the emotions is external. 

And what is the difference between mind and emotions?  

The mind/sechel says, ‘what’s the point?’  A point is tiny, but that is the whole thing!


The essence of a thing has a Source.  It does not exist on its own.  It is created.

“A River Flows From It” p105


“The spring is always connected to its source.  It comes from a deep hidden source.“

Wisdom/chochmah brings the life force of the soul into  consciousness. 

There’s a river that flows from Eden.  Understanding/binah is the river that flows.  Wisdom and understanding are like a spring and a river.

The spring is always connected to its source.  It comes from a deep hidden source.  

The river from Eden originates as a spring.  

Understanding does not become an ‘entity unto itself’ - it too remains connected to its source.

“Nothing Compares To You” p105


“Godliness is not understood against any kind of background.  It needs to be understood for what it is.  And this is beyond our capability to do!“

Godliness is beyond space - it is beyond needing a provision for what it is. 

Godliness is not understood against any kind of background.  It needs to be understood for what it is.  And this is beyond our capability to do!

Everything on earth is described against the background of the sky/shamayim.  This is what provides for the recognition of anything in the world. 

This is the case on the physical level.  And this is even more true on the intellectual and spiritual level - as the RAMBAM says, ‘the basis for all knowledge is to know that there is a First Being and all comes from Him’.

When we learn Torah we go to His understanding, we don’t understand the Torah in our terms.  

He wants the world to exist and He provides for it on a constant basis.  When I say I know, it points to something that He is showing me.  This is in contrast to ‘knowing’ something based on my experience.  

Every truth, fact or address is an actuality based on His hand making it so.

“Step Inside” p105


“Understanding is a soul quality.  It flows from the soul.  there is nothing more real in our conscious life than mind/sechel.“

Our understanding is not like His.  

Understanding is a soul quality.  It flows from the soul.  there is nothing more real in our conscious life than mind/sechel.

Sechel is the moment where soul truths are translated into our parameters of time and space.  

Chochmah/wisdom is allowing for entry into a place beyond time and space.  This is the difference between watching from the outside through a window, contrasted with actually entering the room.  


To recognize something as real you need to know it is a creation, and you relate to the Creator and thus you can relate continually.

“Mind The Gap” p105


“No-one understands what life is, although it is constantly experienced.  It is the Godly presence in the world that brings life into the world. “

The Rebbe is describing the ‘curtain’.  The separation between different worlds.  

He uses ‘our understanding of Godliness’ as a metaphor for this.  He explains that our understanding of Godliness is based on His actions - what He has done in creation.  We give things a time and space orientation. 

Truth is that God’s work is not place dependent.   And if we try to rise above a ‘space’ orientation we will not really be successful.  This is because for us ’space’ is a fundamental presence.  

Our understanding is not like His, which is an understanding beyond the framework of ‘place’.

In the world of atzilus, place does not substantiate existence.
