We said this morning that there is oneg in everything. This means, everything was created by G-d. But this can be seen in 2 ways – He made it and then it was merely a creation, or that He made it and that this G-dly element stays with it.

Inanimate means that the object is quiet, not that it doesn't stand for anything.

We can relate to the world in different ways. Either everything is in constant conflict and battle for its existence, or it can be seen as a creation. If the world is a creation then the sun rotates around the earth in order to serve it. If seen from a worldly perspective then the movement of the planets is all accidental.

The tynug is dressed into all aspect of the physical world, since the tynug is what keeps them in existence. The life in the body gives it its real presence.

After the life/soul leaves it, the body disintegrates. This is true of everything and every object in the world – there is a tynug/life force in it that maintains it. We lose this perspective, everyone below the level of a tzaddik loses this perception.

If not preoccupied with our own existence then we see the world from this perspective of everything created by Him.
