seeing to the source

A Tzaddik recognises that all of his actions and all of his accomplishments come straight from God, he doesn't take any credit for himself.

This is the explanation of כי עמך מקור חיים באורך נראה אור - for with you is the source of life, in your light we see light. David HaMelech knew that even when he prays for the healing of someone, the healing comes from HaShem, because with you is the source of life. Similarly, whenever we are enlightened, it is only because God shined his light upon us. (in your light we see light)

(Noam Elimelech, Parashath Vayetzei)
