It is written, “The secret things belong unto the Lord our God; but the things that are revealed belong unto us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.”

We can see that people are given only a part of the whole picture.

There are people with knowledge in the revealed, part that for others is the concealed part.

The thing is that in this world, there is revealed Divine knowledge to us according to our actions.

 We see where an act is done,

and where a man cannot do anything.


A hidden force operates there.


The sages said: “There are three partners in man – the Creator, his father, and his mother.”

 The revealed part, one’s parents and teachers can direct one to understanding.

The Creator puts a soul in the newborn with the deeper things, they are the hidden part.

The parents by their Holiness in their marital union do their thing thing;  the Creator Himself does another thing.

Thus there is placed the soul in the newborn – here.

The hidden part is truly the work of the soul in the keeping of Torah and Mitzvot (commandments).

 


 There one cannot do a thing.

 


THERE IS GOD

 


One keeps the Torah and Mitzvot (commandments) in action, called “doing,”

 Pray to the Creator for the concealed part.

There your soul ignites the Mitzva (commandment)  and gives it  soul.

PLEASE GOD.

 The practical part, physical part of each commandment is as a newborn.

The soul and vitality depend on the Creator and His Mercy.

And this is the meaning of “The secret things belong unto the Lord our God.”

 

The Creator promises that if we do the share that is revealed to us, acting on the conditions of the Torah and Mitzvot in the practical part, the Creator will put  soul into our actions.

 

The revealed part is like a body it is what some would think religion should be.

 

The hidden part, Soul, This is what is referred to as the spirituality that animates “religious expression”

 

They must be together.

 

Without spirituality all the religious acts are as bodies devoid of souls.

 

Like the tin man, without a heart.

 

The giving of the Torah that occurred on Mount Sinai does not means that the Torah was given once and then the giving was stopped.

 Spirituality is an eternal matter, unending.

But since, from the perspective of the giver, we are unfit to receive the Torah, we say that the cessation is by the Upper One.

However, then, at the foot of Mount Sinai, the whole of Israel were ready to receive the Torah, as it is written, “there Israel encamped before the mount, as one man in one heart.” At that time, the whole public was prepared; they had but one intention, which is a single thought about the reception of the Torah.

There are no changes from the perspective of the Creator, giver of the Torah – He always gives.

This is “the Creator will put  soul into our actions.”

 

Then the Torah is called the “elixer of life”

Without spirituality all the religious acts are as bodies devoid of souls.

 

This is the “elixer of death.”

Thus Concerning Torah it is written, “If one merits, it becomes an elixir of life; if one does not merit, it becomes an elixir of death!”

Choose life !
