In the realm of holiness, the letter ה depicts someone whose three soul-garments — his thought, speech and action — are filled with the light of the Torah, with its wisdom, and with the character traits [that it extols]. Thus, with his faculty of thought he thinks Torah thoughts.
....other activities, such as eating and drinking, are similarly carried out for the sake of heaven, so that with a healthy body he will be able to study and pray, and serve G-d through the fulfillment of the mitzvos — each man according to his level and according to his spiritual metabolism. For some men are masters of Torah; some are masters of prayer; some are masters of good deeds, of tzedakah and acts of kindness — which means that they sustain the poor and the Torah scholars, both with their personal exertion and with their contributions.
