    I heard once a watch on shabbos is not a tachshit for a man as he would not wear it broken compared to a woman wearing a gold watch.

    The Meharal is saying above that because of the love of the Torah, we forget its origin where it is coming from. The fact is that we are able to be mechadesh should reflect that this ability comes from Hashem who has hidden in it this sodos and through a kasheh we are able to reveal them.

    This was the argument at the meraglim wheher the redemption will come spontatenously with only the help of Hashem or together with our help. The meraglim held that they have to put their effort into it which they are unable to do.

    What does our Holy Creator do above in heaven?
    He calls his angels and he says to them.
    Look at my beloved loyal children
    Even if they are in pain and it goes for them badly
    They still do the will of Hashem like caring servants
    Even if they are in danger,, they live in fright and fear,
    They forget their pain and rejoice with the holy Torah,

    Korach believed that no leader is necessary because we are all holy on the same level. People are judged above according the level of their holiness. Kodoshim is holier than truma. A kohen is holier than a yisroel. There are twenty five leveks of the neshomo. When he fights his yetzer hora and he defeats it, he gets a higher level of neshomo because the yetzer hora can’t be stronger he can take. See the Sefer Habris.
