Kabbalistic meaning of Mitzvot

Q: In your last book, you wrote about Mitzvot (commandments). It's very difficult to observe something without any understanding of its meaning or the corresponding laws in the Upper World. Where can I find materials on the Kabbalistic meaning of Mitzvot?

A: Read the answer to the question, "Can I change the world?” The meaning of Mitzvot is that when you observe them in their true sense, not by your hand and legs, but with the aim directed toward the Creator, then you can grasp Him in this desire, become equal with Him, and merge with Him. This way you reach out to Him and this is the real meaning of any Mitzva.

In our world, observing Mitzvot is necessary only to fulfill the act and place Kabbalah studies above it.
