"A point of identification with the divine will"


Whenever one studies Torah, on whatever level, he becomes one with the divine will.

Then, together with God, he contemplates and creates the structure of the world. 

This participation can take place at any level, high or low. 

Even when a small boy reads "In the beginning" with difficulty, he experiences a point of identification with the divine will. 

Merely by pronouncing these first letters of the Torah, as long as he says them with the proper intent, he is on the same level with the wisest of men. 

Although he does not understand every level of meaning, what he does understand is completely true.
