The ultimate desire of the G-dly soul Is to convert the animal soul that she too should become a drive for holiness. To achieve this the G-dly soul needs to attain a much higher level of love that is called “love of delight”. Unlike the lower form of love which is compered to fire, an experience where one feels that G-d is far and distant and the human being is trying to bridge this gap, resulting in a thirst and burning passion to get closer. This higher love is like water that connects particles one to another here one feels the pleasure and bliss from being connected to G-d. Its this pleasure that the G-dly soul can share with the animal soul that will result in a total transformation of the unholy in man.
The great battle begins, the two souls are at each others throats each one desires to be the king of the body. The G-Dly soul wants the body to be completely surrendered to her. That all brain activity should be to the service of its holy intelligence and all feelings of the heart should be of a spiritual nature.
