Isarusa d’leila vs. Isarusa d’lesata

Isarusa d’leila — inspiration from above. When Hashem inspires you as a favor; you suddenly have energy for your avoida. Amazing, but is not earned, so it doesn’t stay.

Isarusa d’lesata — inspiration from below. When you work hard, and Hashem sends inspiration to you proportional to your work. Less abundant in energy, but more internalized.

Of course, if you wanted to go totally superficial, there are always Chinese.
