“God blew your soul into you. It is not a created entity. Your soul is ‘of Himself’. The soul/neshamah is an essence [atzmi]. Thus there is no limit to what the soul can reach, and to what it can comprehend.“

Something from nothing [yesh mi’ein] is completely different from our usual thinking.
It is exclusively within the divine purview.
So what can be said?
We have no metaphor for it.
It is based on an insight we have - emunah/faith, which is deeper than wisdom. It is a point of truth.
We don’t ‘discover it on our own’. It was put into us.
