All matters of sechel and pleasure, are based on revelations from above.
The simple doing of mitzvoth are a representation of the kingdom of heaven, without any features or qualities.
Why does action 'draw down' (mamshich) essence even if there is an absence of pleasure in its performance?
Essence is above expression. Pleasure is the source of all experienced life. So what is essence that is not expressed in pleasure? What is it is about? It is not about anything, it is reality itself.
Essence cannot be interpreted at a lower level. Essence is represented in order. Order says, 'there's a provider'.
