Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “A cosmic way”

The fundamental dynamics of life and existence, according to the Kabbalah, is not a simple straight line process, either horizontal or from above to below.

There is a complex interrelationship of actions and reactions, multiple influences and contextual forces which operate on a number of dimensions and levels.

Essentially it is a mutuality of influence, hardly ever a one-way cause and effect and, as said, it is not confined to the human, or even the biological spheres; it is a cosmic way.
