Excellent answer, would you mind bringing down the Tosafos here? Typically on StackExchange websites, we ask for references in the form of quotes in addition to links.

comment Origin of the Escalator analogy
I heard it darshened by a Bobover friend like this: "In avodas Hashem, one must go up smoothly as a ramp, not leaping upward beyond ones means as on a staircase." Is that what you're looking for?

comment If it's your minhag to daven Hanetz, do you do so even without a minyan?
Hanetz = Sunrise. Sunrise, by definition, can't happen 3 hours into the day :) Sof Zman Krias Shema happens 3 hours after hanetz. I think we're talking about different things here.

comment Accusations against the Zohar HaKadosh:
It's important to understand that we view the sefiros as creations of Hashem, not as Hashem Himself.

comment Accusations against the Zohar HaKadosh:
Also, just food for thought, but consider that both the Baal Shem Tov and Vilna Gaon were renowned kabbalists. By extension, both the Litvish/yeshivish leaders as well as the "founder" of Chassidus held by the Zohar and by kabbalah. Nachmanides and many other rishonim did as well.
