Chassidus contains two fundamental principles:

(a) Understanding every halacha (Torah law) on its spiritual plane, in its root and ultimate source, namely in the Sefirot and planes in every World1 according to that World's character, as explained in Chassidus.

(b) Comprehending the subject of every halacha in avoda; meaning, although the halacha is an expression of G‑dly wisdom and intelligence and is a law in Torah, nevertheless one must discover in it an avoda - concept to guide man's conduct in his life here in This World.
