Rabbi Shimon was asked why the Israelites move their body from side to side when they study or connect spiritually.
He sat, cried and said that the question reminds him of a great secret of the upper world.
Rabbi Shimon explains that the Israelites’ souls come from the Holy candle.
Proverb 20:27 “נֵר יְהוָה, נִשְׁמַת אָדָם ”
“The spirit of man is the candle of YHVH”
This candle (in Malchut) is lit by the Torah that is Zeir Anpin and its light never rests.
Isaiah 62:6 “הַמַּזְכִּרִים, אֶת-יְהוָה–אַל-דֳּמִי, לָכֶם.”
“for those who remember YHVH, have no rest”
For those who have YHVH in their souls, the light is always with them. Like the light of the candle flickers constantly after it is lit.
The flame of the candle flickers because it represents acts of constant sharing. The light doesn’t rest and spreads in every direction until it’s ‘blocked’. Everything in the world of Malchut is in constant motion. The electrons of the atom are ‘forced’ by an unknown force (to scientists) to circle around the nucleolus in defined orbits. This is the life force that holds and keeps existence in its program.
The other nations are called slaves to the Zodiac and to the program but the Israelites can choose paths that are beyond the defined program when they connect with the study of Zohar (Torah) to higher lights.
