Shemitta & chazaq

Shemitta might well be the opposite of chazaq
Shemitta means to release one's grasp as opposed to chazaq, which means to hold one's grasp. Shabbat signifies a turning away from the material and focusing onto the spiritual, onto that about which God is the focus. 
People seem not to appreciate the implications of shemitta on the very business practices of the nation.
