Page 33 – 6 lines from the end of the page. Line starts, “hishtalshalus...”
We pointed out that at times we say mitzvot are higher and other times we say torah is higher.
Mitzvah break through the whole seder hishtalshalus and bring directly His ratzon/will.
Thus by means of the mitzvah the ohr ein sof is revealed. Torah on the other hand is chochmah. And so from this perspective mitzvahs are above torah. How is the ohr ein sof nimshach if the seder hishtalshalus is being ignored?!
Any thing that is not ohr ein sof would automatically be caught up in the seder hishtalshalus. Mitzvahs by pass this. It is a direct translation of how the mitzvah is above. It is an ohr that is not affected by seder hishtalshalus.
