There is nothing in the world that does not have a message.

We are looking at what is meant by “essential playthings”.

David the king was under representing the torah when he said that it was “song” for him. Calling torah song is attributing torah to a high root, but torah is rooted above that – it is the intermediary that connects ohr ein sof and the world. In order for there to be revelation in the world it is through the intermediary of torah.

The function of the intermediary is that the lower level be connected to the higher level.

How is this done? It is by means of the essential pleasure that is contained in torah.

It is known that pleasure/tynug is the principle element and life of everything. Every faculty is based on its pleasure.

It may seem that a functioning faculty is a response to stimulus, but we note that in every functional faculty there is an essential life/chayut that gives it existence. The meziut and the chayut are the same. When we think of body and soul, the existence and the life seem vastly different, but we see as soon as the life is removed from the body it starts to disintegrate. Metziut and chayut/life are totally intertwined.

There is nothing in the world that does not have a message.

“Existence/metziut” is totally dependent on “chayut/life”.

The world is continually making a statement, “I am not here because of myself. Someone made me.”

This element can be concealed as the word descends into materiality.

You may think something is created with an idea and then left alone, but actually it is the message that was created and it is this message/life/pleasure that keeps everything in existence.

He has a purpose in the creation. This is the inherent oneg in the creation. In everything there is a G-dly spark – a true element.
