Tzitzit: Peer into the infinite Creator

"The Torah says, “It will be for you a tzitzit and you will see it and remember all the commandments of G-d and perform them.” 
Ostensibly, the Torah should have written, “you will see them,” referring to the tzitzit strings in the plural. The spiritual masters (Menachot 43b) explain that the phrase “and you will see it” can also be read as “and you will see Him,” meaning when someone does this mitzvah with all the appropriate intention and concentration it has the power to open his eyes to the Divine Presence, the Shechina “and you will see Him.”
