And You Shall Love the Lord Your God

659) By right and left being included in the holy name in general, in “Hear O Israel” and in “Blessed be the name of the glory of His kingdom forever and ever,” they should later be taken out in particular, in the verses, “And you shall love,” “And it shall come to pass, if you hear.” However, not by unification because the unification is in the first verse in “Hear O Israel,” that the Lord will be one in the head Tefillin, and His name One in the hand Tefillin, and all will be one. Since all this unification was arranged in the general—from the highest point, Hochma—there needs to be an awakening from the Rosh of the first light—Hesed de ZA—the first of the Sefirot of ZA.

660) The portion, “And you shall love” is the beginning of the right, the Sefira Hesed, to love the Creator in love of bonding with Him. Right, Hesed, evokes love. One who loves the Creator, the Creator awakens His right toward him and accepts him with love. All the matters in the world depend only on the will, Ruach drawing Ruach and bringing Ruach, as it is written, “If He set His heart upon him, He will gather unto Him his spirit and his soul.”

661) When one evokes love for the Creator, awakening of the right, love, it awakens in three ways, as it is written, “With all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might.” Thus, there are three ways here. Do not say, “Either this or that,” for it is not written, “Or in all your heart, or in all your soul, or in all your might.” Rather, all are needed, heart, soul, and silver. Then the Creator evokes toward him His right hand and stretches it out to him, and He accepts him.

662) It is written about it, “The Lord says unto my lord: ‘Sit at My right.’” King David said that in regard to his degree, the Malchut, when it connects to the right.

There are 13 Mitzvot here in the right: “And you shall love the Lord your God” is one, “With all your heart” is two, “With all your soul” is three, “And with all your might” is four. “You shall teach them diligently to your sons” is five, “And you shall speak of them” is six, “When you sit in your house” is seven, “When you walk by the way” is eight, “When you lie down” is nine, “And when you rise up” is ten. “You shall bind them as a sign on your hand” is eleven, “And they shall be as frontals on your forehead” is twelve. “You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates” is thirteen.

663) These 13 Mitzvot depend on the right, and the left is included in the right, and so it should be. Each time the left awakens, the right begins in it first. For this reason, if they are rewarded, the left is included in the right. And if not, the right is included in the left, and the left governs, as it is written, “’If you walk in My statutes,” writing “If” in the beginning. In every place, the left awakens with love, in the right, and then its Din increases, as it should be. So it should be everywhere.
