    It does not say kadosh tihye, we must become holy through unity, but not like Hashem with a ‘vov’ in it.
    Like the ladder Yaakov Avinu dreamt about standing on the ground and having the potential to reach the heavens. The Chasam Sofer gives a means to accomplish it stepwise. סור מרע ועשה טוב, turn away from bad and do good. בקש שלום, there is a conflict between body and soul and we want to make peace between them and increase ourselves in kedusha. ורדפהו persue a goal, let the soul create a small conflict to do something that the body does not like and allow it to get used to it. Continue this method reaching higher levels of kedusha. This should be done with others in mind. If a person becomes a hermit separating himself from people, and says like Hanoch, don’t touch me I am holy, he will be taken away as malachim are in the heavens and not here.
