Page 34 – last quarter of the page. Line starts, “detynug...”
In truth tynug and chochmah have a commonality.
Nothing that has been created is an atzmi. The nefesh is one with its creator and therefore essential.
From the nefesh come many kochot/faculties. Some are known to us and some are subconscious.
They come from the nefesh in order to reaveal the nefesh in the world. They enable the soul to express itself in the world. The essence of the nefesh incorporates a whole variety of kochot.
When you have all 613 kochot present in the world then you have a sense of an atzmi. The human being is not bound by “his nature”. There is no other creature in the world that can act in 2 opposite ways.
By drawing from his essence the human being is free from “his natue”. Oneg is from the nefesh and spreads to evey koach.
Bitul allows one to see whatever there is to see, and is not limited to one perspective or another.
Oneg is a perception of reality. It is a sense of infinity. The animal soul is satisfied to, “have something for the moment”, but this is taking onge/delight out of context. Claustrophobia is sense that one is not connected to the overall space/context.
Chochmah has a sense of reality and says, “this is absolutely true – I don't have proof, I have how it is emanating from chochmah.” Knowing, is knowing there is a First Being that is the source of all creation. Nothing exists because of itself – the world says, “there is a creator.”
Kedusha is that which is connected to chochmah – this means connected to the source. Oneg is the experience and chochmah is the perception.
The true source of chochmah is the essential oneg/delight.
