“...Not the strength of horses..."

Tshuvah is not an indication that things don't have a significance and “light is like dark” since inside kesser there is a medida. Its effluence is only onto a place that is proper.
Chitzoni ha kesser, means there is a makif type revelation from the crown. You don't have to be a keili for it – all can receive.
Pnimi of the crown is the presence of the king himself.
“He doesn't desire the strength of horses...” there is nothing but Him and then he went and created a world. Did he want a world of truth or falsehood? He didn't create the world in an off-hand way. He did it by virtue of inner intent. He wants this reflected in the wold, “not for people to stumble in darkness and eat grass.” He wants those “who look forward to His chesed”, those who depend on Him, not on their own cunning. The object is not that there is a world, but that there is a world where He, Himself is present.
From the inner perspective everything is directly connected to the essence.
Yirat hashem – hi chaim - “fear/awe of Him is life” - the most precious thing He can give us is a sense of His presence.
When one's relationship to Him is on a pnimi level, then the external conditions, don't count, and harsh times are seen as loving reprimand. Who cares about the behavior of a child? Only his father.
From this inner level comes the wiping away of sin.
