The entire wisdom of the Kabbalah is based upon the verse, ‘and you shall set it in your heart [that the Lord is God in the Heavens above and upon the the earth below; there is no other]’ (Deuteronomy 4:39), whereby the Torah admonishes that we should strive that the belief in the Torah should be integrated into our hearts by knowing the ways God directs the world, and… the manner in which the performance of the commandments brings the world toward Perfection.
