AyinBase / Ayin Beis with R' Paltiel 21 Menachem Av, 5774
At about 10th line from the top of the page (line begins, “ha-chochmah...”) For text, click: Here or see below.
The one who is mighty in chochmah brings out from wisdom from areas where it is deeply concealed.
How can he find sechel/mind everywhere? It seems to imply sechel is everywhere... the mighty one digs in and finds it... This is like what the Arizal says, 'in everything there is vitality' - even in dust of the earth.
This chayus/vitality is 'what makes it live' – 'what makes it be'. The one who is mighty in wisdom (gibor bechochmah) recognizes there is nothing, but for the Godly force that creates everything... and if it is God's creation, then there is a significance to its being.
This is why the Baal Shem says, there is divine providence in everything.
The world has become blinded by the physical presence. The physical is seen as the limit of existence. As the basis. But the physical is a Godly creation. It is real.
You want to be. The reason you want to be is because God wants you to be. This vitality can be concealment by external layers – the gibor/mighty one breaks through to the source of life.
He brings out the concealed thing specifically. Till nothing remains obscured from him.
The soul is in the body. It is an anomoly.
The soul was blown into the body.
This brings out something that is beyond anything it stands for – this is the essence.
If you face a wall you cannot go through it. This is true if your movement is based on 'things being accessible.' But the mighty one does not reach things because 'they are accessible' but because the destination 'is there'.
And there is an indestructible point in the soul that can relate to anything – even the body!
The essence of the soul itself is correlated with the body and this talks to the body.
The truth of sechel/mind in the soul is that, 'it is impossible not to be...'
