A person must realize all the commandments not only within himself, but on every possible external manifestation of his egoism. The doorposts and the gates are the restrictions that exist around our external desires. The fact is that desires come from inside out and are graded as following: the house, the yard, the fence around them, and then the field and the desert.
All this is inside a person; this is how he is created. He must also create such attributes, such symbols externally, in order to be aware of them. Therefore, there is a custom to kiss the mezuzah, but only in order to remind a person about his internal states that must be corrected.
The problem is that we don’t use them. It would be good if we explained that all of these are just signs that remind the people that they must correct their hearts. However, since we don’t teach them this, people are satisfied with performing the commandments mechanically and consider themselves righteous because of it. People don’t want to learn and listen to what the wisdom of Kabbalah tells them.
It is necessary to teach them both at the same time and not to replace one with another! This is the problem.
Torah, Deuteronomy 11:21: In order that your days may increase and the days of your children, on the land which the Lord swore to your forefathers to give them, as the days of heaven above the earth.
“In order that your days may increase” is a constant elevation on the 125 degrees to the world of infinity (Ein Sof), so that a person will possess “this land,” meaning all of the immense desire within him. He must reveal, develop, and correct it and exist in it on a completely different level.
