Freedom is … transforming physicality into spirituality. This is a deep kabbalistic concept. Using something physical like flowers and challah (wheat, eggs etc.) and using them for something good like Shabbos frees their ‘soul power.’ Giving money to a charity that helps someone in need elevates the vibration of money. According to this Kabbalistic principle, whenever we eat a vegetable, fruit and even an animal and use the physical energy gained from those things to do good in the world, we are releasing and elevating the spiritual energy contained within.
