At 5th line from end of the page – (line begins: 'be-gan eiden...') For text see below.
We have been saying that the creation is for the aim of making Him known – the goal of life is knowing Godliness. And this is the Godliness not as it is unto itself, but as it comes to the world. And here there are 2 levels – a) memaale kol olmin – filling the world and b) sovev kol olmin – surrounding all worlds.
And the light of memaale kol olmin can create 'something from nothing'.
This is like the king and the mountain. “He decrees and the mountain is turned over”. But when you watch his servants working with the shovels, you see each movement. Why do they obey the king's command. Is it the command or the king that makes it happen? It is the invisible king that makes it happen. This is like light. The light cleaves to the source. The king's workers feel the awe of the king – they sense the source of the command/project – their king.
