We are looking at how the topic of Godliness is permeating the mind/mochin and then the midot/emotions and then service of God.
Love and awe are felt in the heart and they relate to fulfilling the mitzvoth in actuality.
There are commands that come from God, that do not necessarily relate to a worldly orientation.
The physical heart should love God - this is a difficult task and needs a great degree of purification.
And through this work the animal soul is purified. By work of the mind/mochin alone the animal soul will not be moved from its coarseness.
Human vs animal soul… a human being has an element of ‘what is this about’; and element of intelligence, that is involved with everything he does and observes.
All service begins with some level of awareness of ‘what is reality’ - an awareness of the basic environment…
