In the Torah are 3 levels – desert, settlement and field. At the giving of the Torah a special element was revealed, which can only be described as Essence/etzem.
Torah is something that is internalized into the person...
The desert hides its significance. It seems to be a wasteland. It corresponds to the 10 hidden sphirot.
It is the hidden elements. In the 'time to come' there will be a grasp of essence (hasagahs hamahus). Comprehension of the incomprehensible...!
The 'settlement' corresponds to an understanding of Godliness to the extent that human mind facilitates... with understanding and pleasure.
The 'field' does not have human settlement. But the field is for the sake of the settlement. The purpose of the field is to support the settlement.
The desert corresponds to fulfillment of mitzvoth without the desire to relate to their meaning and intentionality. Rather just to fulfill His will.
This is going beyond one's personal experience. Here one goes beyond his own experience and His sechel to the level of just doing on account of His will.
