      The essence of serving God and of all the
      misvot (the 613 commandments in the Torah)
      is to attain the state of humility, that is,
      to understand that all your physical and
      mental powers and your essential being depend
      on the divine elements within. You are simply
      a channel for the divine attributes. You attain
      this humility through the awe of God's vastness,
      through realizing that "there is no place empty
      of it." Then you come to the state of Ayin, the
      state of humility. You have no independent self
      and are contained in the Creator. This is the
      meaning of the verse: "Moses hid his face, for
      he was in awe." Through his experience of awe,
      Moses attained the hiding of his face, that is,
      he perceived no independent self. Everything was
      part of divinity.
