ה. והנה סידר האדון ב”ה, שכל הענינים אשר תפול בהם בחירתו של האדם, יגיעו להניע בתנועה הבחיריית את הכחות ההם, באותו השיעור והמדריגה שחקק להם. והיינו כי לא מעשיו לבדם יניעום, אלא אפילו דיבורו ואפילו מחשבתו. אך שיעור התנועה ומדריגתה, לא יהיו אלא באותו הגבול שגזרה והגבילתה החכמה העליונה:

 G-d set it up so that everything relevant to free will would affect the Transcendent Forces to the degree He wanted them to. But this isn’t only true when it comes to our actions: it’s also true when it comes to what we say and think.

And we can only influence them to the degree that G-d Himself established.

(c) 2015 Rabbi Yaakov Feldman
