Page 34 – sixth line from the top of the page. Line starts “lemutav...”

Mitzvot are etzem ha ratzon – where there is no cause for the will.

This pure essence is an imperative – the sechel compels realization that this is the source of everything. If not we would have to think that the source is some kind of interaction, but actually the source is a perfect unity.

As our sechel emanates from our nefesh, despite it's structure we must always have the sense that there is one theme running through everything. One cannot conceive of one's life as a response to other factors. The sechel senses the source where it comes from.
