Zohar Pinchas, Vol. 20 (English)/Vol 15 (Hebrew)
When all four sides connect together, the ‘hind’ delivers and the Snake leaves her. The ‘hind’ is sanctified on the upper levels and they call her ‘Honor’.
“וּבְהֵיכָלוֹ כֻּלּוֹ, אֹמֵר כָּבוֹד”
“and in His temple all say: ‘Honor’”
Malchut is the middle point of Creation like the nucleus of the atom that hold the ‘story’ of all the levels connected to it.
The Zohar explains that on each of the four sides of Malchut there are three lines and nine Sefirot. Malchut is the connecting point for all sides. It is the tenth from all directions and where the light of the nine is revealed.
The illustration shows 25 points כה as in the blessings of the priests כה תברכו את בני ישראל “Bless the children of Israel” and חנו-כה that is the light revealed on Hanukah. 25 is the reference to where the blessings are channeled to the world. The middle point of Malchut is the 26th and it complete the four letters of the YHVH name that has the numerical value of 26.
When Malchut receives the upper ‘honor’ the process is complete and ‘new life’ appears in the world. The soul of this ‘new life’ comes from the highest level of Keter.
” הִנֵּה יַשְׂכִּיל, עַבְדִּי; יָרוּם וְנִשָּׂא וְגָבַהּ, מְאֹד”
“Behold, My servant shall prosper, he shall be exalted and lifted up, and shall be very high”
Only when all four sides connected in unity the soul of Mashiach could be ‘delivered’ in Malchut. The five levels of soul Nefesh, Ruach, Neshamah, Chaya and Yechida. The first level of Nefesh exists in all living. Ruach and Neshamah can be achieved by righteous people. The level of Chaya was given to Moses and for other high level souls in the spiritual level. Only one soul can have the level of Yechida and it is the Mashiach that is called ‘King’. His soul level is one with the Endless light at the level of Keter.
The Zohar in the portion of Shemot reveals to us that Mashaiach will show himself to the world and leave for one year while the cleansing process is done in the world.
His level of Light could ‘burn’ the world, if not restricted immediately. Rabbi Shimon and his son, Rabbi Elazar, studied with Elijah and Moses in their hiding cave. They revealed great Light that they carried with them when leaving the cave. When they saw people busy with simple actions of this world a fire came from them and burned the people. They were forced to go back to the cave for another year to balance their Light force with the world of Malchut.
This study gives us the understanding of what the Mashiach can do on this world. We should stay close to the Zohar and grow our soul and light to be able to withstand the levels of Light revealed at the time of Mashiach.
The Path to Redemption must be earned by spiritual connection and that means the Zohar because it is the only tool the reveals the hidden Light of the Torah.
” לֹא-יָמוּשׁ סֵפֶר הַתּוֹרָה הַזֶּה מִפִּיךָ, וְהָגִיתָ בּוֹ יוֹמָם וָלַיְלָה, לְמַעַן תִּשְׁמֹר לַעֲשׂוֹת, כְּכָל-הַכָּתוּב בּוֹ: כִּי-אָז תַּצְלִיחַ אֶת-דְּרָכֶךָ, וְאָז תַּשְׂכִּיל”
” “This book of the law (The Torah) shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.”
God gave Joshuah this advice immediately after Moses departure from the world. If this advice was good for Joshuah then it’s definitely good advice for us.
The physical world is our ‘corridor’ to the world of the Final Redemption. The body is a tool for the soul to use for cleansing and spiritual growth. It is a great advantage to be strong and powerful on the physical, material level. Rich and influential is a great tool for the soul. A rich or influential person can do more and support many on their path to the Final Redemption. Every soul that we help to connect to the Light is like adding another branch on our personal Tree of Life. We can grow without limitation. Imagine you connect one person that does a great work and connect many more. They are all connected to your ‘root’ as long as you didn’t disconnect yourself. Tithing is an action that reveals light in our Malchut level. Supporting the community that gives us spiritual home and supports our spiritual growth is important. Supporting spiritual teachers connects us to their revelation of light. Removing ‘bread of shame’ from our lives is a major part of everyone’s Tikkun. By ‘earning’ the light (paying or giving back) even if it was offered for free. Support those who spread the Light of the Zohar because they affect the entire world. These actions make you a spiritual partner and benefit your soul with bigger vessel full of Light.
