touch (tamuz 26 5765)

hassiduth (and the kabbalah) teach that hashem created the world and everything in existence through speech. speech has a number of components. first comes the breath. this breath is modified in five areas of the mouth. each area of the mouth has the ability to produce certain letters. finally, the assembled speech leaves the lips clothed in letters. the letters are further combined into words. (but the atoms of speech, and therefore existence, are (the 22 hebrew) letters.) hashem's will is expressed through the combinations and interactions of the letters. the further (lower in the *created* spiritual hierarchy) a creation is, the more permutations and combinations the letters must go through.
