Mystical Concepts

The Body and Spiritual Freedom

Embodiment may be considered both a prison for the soul as well as its path to spiritual freedom.

Continuing the theme introduced in Ch. 46 of Tanya which explains the reflective nature of the heart, Ch. 47 asks how we can feel G-d's love for us that He exhibited when taking us out from Egypt when it happened so long ago. The answer is that we can view every moment as "Egypt" and whenever we connect to Him through Torah and mitzvos, this is our "Exodus."
