The ultimate recognition is of the soul itself. Once you recognize the essence of the soul, then you no longer require an insignificant logical process. When it comes to Ein Sof it is beyond the possibility or necessity of proof.

Kisses are representative of the level called 'akudim', which is a level of atzmus beyond tohu and tikkun. There is an absolute First Being. In our world reality itself is precarious. But there is a first Being that is the source for all reality.

When a ball is thrown, it has force beyond its directed flight and hence will bounce. This is the case also in a person, who is motivated to go in a certain direction and there is disappointment. There is something more essential than the specific project and thus the motivation turns to something else. This indicates a wide reality. Kisses are an expression of affection that cannot be contained in any particular activity or statement.

Akudim – alludes to 'akudim be keili echad'. Usually each sphirah is in its own vessel. In akudim all are in one – and represent a wide essential reality.

A kiss is a reality that cannot be disturbed. You can blow a kiss to another... It is an unstoppable force.
