G-d gave us Jews a mission in this world. It is very simple to be a light unto the nations of world and then to create a dwelling place for G-d.
This is why gave us Torah. This is why G-d placed us Jews in the world. We Jews are to take the material world and fusing it with G-d’s will.
This begs the question How de we know G-d’s will?
It is very simple.
G-d told us.
G-d sanctified us with HIS commandment and told us.
G-d gave us 613 commandments.
What is a commandment?
G-d reveals to us the G-dliness within the concealed world. So, we are instructed how to take the energies of this world and transform them into Mitzvah.
We take everyday life and lift it up to G-d and thus the everyday life is transformed into mitzvah.
Mitzvah is revelation.
This is a heavy one. Think about this for more than a minute or two. When we (I) get caught up in I. We (I) can never be truly a vessel for HaShem.
Doing Mitzvahs brings about the nullification of me.
Thus, by doing mitzvah brings into existence the revelation of G-d.
We were not put in this world for I. We were put into this world to do mitzvahs. Doing mitzvahs has nothing to do with how I feel.
The problems I have are I. Not you me. It has nothing do with how I feel. I must do. I need to do. If I am focused on being a servant of G-d, I must focus on making my business run, focus on being a good father, a good mother, a good child, and a good neighbor.
What does this have to do with I?
The answer is nothing.
Once the soul goes through the process of coming into this world the soul cannot be the fuel that sparks G-dliness the soul is tainted with I.
It is not pure anymore.
This is a problem.
Creation by definition is concealment of G-dly energy. Dwelling of divine presence is the opposite of that.
The opposite of concealment is the revelation of the divine presence.
Where does one find the divine presence?
Let’s put it this way. Ego keeps G-d away. Self keeps G-d away. I keep G-d away.
The greatest receptacle from HaShem is humility.
The I blocks G-d. It keeps G-d away thus G-d is concealed.
Where does G-d reveal HIMSELF?
Anywhere G-d is permitted to enter.
When we (I) study Torah we (I) become a host for G-d. When we (I) take the time for the daily study of Torah for only one hour in the morning and one hour in the evening this enables us (I) to create a dwelling place for G-d.
It is not enough to be a Jew in the heart. We have to do mitzvahs.
Mitzvah is not creation a mitzvah is G-d’s will.
