Zohar Pinchas, Vol. 20 (English)/Vol 15 (Hebrew)
Kohen, Priest, is right column and the aspect of brain, Levite is left column and the aspect of the heart. Israel is central column and the aspect of the body.
The liver brings sacrifices to the heart that rejects the impure fat of the sacrifices. The Zohar reveals to us that there is pure and impure fat in the body. The heart accepts the pure kind and rejects the impure. There are pure arteries and impure arteries. Similarly there are armies of the good side that ‘supervise’ the arteries of the heart and there are armies of the negative side that ‘supervise’ the arteries of the Liver. The Zohar continues and distinguishes between the Israelites and the other nations that are controlled by the 12 constellations. The Israelites have ability to disconnect from the impure side while the other nations abide by their planned process.
The body has internal wars between the good and the negative side. The mind, heart and the entire body are responsible for keeping the body and soul in balance. Impure consciousness and physical desires without involving the Light result in negative outcome. It can turn the good fat to impure fat and damage the heart and the arteries.
The act of restriction is not just about behavior toward people and the environment but it should be applied when using physical energy. Food can turn positive or negative in the body depending on the way we consume it.
It is better to have a scheduled time for eating to keep the body in order. Proper blessings to draw light and transform physical energy to spiritual are very important. We should also remember that highly processed food has the consciousness of the manufacturer that desires to take from you more than he can give. The machines that process the food ‘suck’ the natural energy of the food and leave us with ‘waste’ that is rarely beneficial for us. Keeping Kosher, especially with meat and separating dairy and meat meal times and utensils will greatly help to balance the energies in the body.
