chirping for the upper worlds

Another great mashal, this one from the Maggid via the Baal HaTanya (Torah Ohr 21:3) which I happened to see quoted in Rav Yitzhak Ginsburg's Introduction to the Kabbalah of the Arizal (hebrew) p.161:

Just as hearing a bird speak brings everyone great surprise and enjoyment, [whereas a person being able to speak wouldn't thrill anyone] so too, when a person of flesh and blood, inhabitant of the lowest of worlds discovers how to serve HaShem through teshuvah, all the upper worlds are joyous and surprised.
