Ratzon/will defines spiritual influence.
This is not the case with the hashpah (soul expression) to give birth. It is different, because he is not attempting to have the student know independently, but rather to create another reality, that is like his own.
And the impetus for this comes from the essencial recognition of etzem/essence. A real living essence. An essence that does not know that it lives is not an essence. A rock is not an essence.
And the essence is cognisant of its own truth by living it.
One does not live because he knows or wants to live, but because he is a living, Godly reality, that has infinity that gives birth to those that resemble him...
Your soul persists. It is a Godly reality. Where does your soul go after life? But where is it now? It does not depend on your body to be. It brings life to the body, but does not depend on it. It is independent.
