Baal HaSulam, “Matan Torah (The Giving of the Torah)”: This perfection is expressed in the words of the Torah and the prophecy and in the words of our sages in the simple word, “Dvekut (adhesion).” But for the widespread use of this word by the masses, it has lost almost all its content. But if you linger on that word for even an instant, you will be overwhelmed by its wondrous stature.
We do not come to adhesion at once. There are measures, and every time when they are revealed in a person, he stands still, startled.
This cannot be described, discerned, from a distance. We are organized in this way, when adhesion is manifested even in small measures, anxiety and uncertainty are replaced by amazement before a whole new world, which suddenly opens to a person. And it is clear that he received it as a gift from the Creator.
