We concluded that Torah and Mitzvot are the means by which Essence is brought down to the world - they have the element if kfiah / subjugation. They are something which is superimposed on the animal soul. The mitvah comes from the Commander.
Within Torah and Mitzvot the negative commandments contain a wider range of kfiah – there is no specificity.
The G-dly soul guides the animal soul to the extent that it desires Elokus. This ability to influence is unique to the G-dly soul.
This is because it is essentially separated from the world and the creation process.
The G-dly soul is dressed in the body, but this does not endanger it. It is not influenced by its environment. The soul is rooted in atzmus (mushrashim be-atzmus). They are rooted there and they remain connected there.
