Who is able to stop the exalted Godly love, which moves and pulsates in the hearts of the remnant, the pious, the holy, the upright of heart.

Like a clear wind full of the spices of Aden, and with this raging and bustling, like the sea rages its waves, the soul rages from expansive pleasure, shining with exalted pleasantness. This pleasure of pleasures magnifies and expands all of one’s spiritual capabilities, and emotional traits: the entire soul is sanctified.

Anyone who has even a distant contact with this pleasant light of the souls of these holy ones, the mighty ones of God, is elevated.

All of the Torah, ethics, commandments, acts and study, are introduced to clear the stumbling blocks along the path, so this love of all the world is able to spread out, to expand to every village in life, in all of their roads.

The many branches of the roots of this love are also the holy of the holiest. They are all the good traits, upright in particular and in general, individual and societal, in order to judge the earth in righteousness, and nations with upright [judgements].
