Continued from previous DZ
The Zohar continues the discussion related to Abraham’s circumcision and the removal of negativity that blocked the proper unification between Zeir Anpin and Malchut.
Since many of you do not read the comments, I’d like to include here a question by a subscriber and my answer.
“Can you enlighten me as to how circumcision and spirituality connect?”
Our head thinks and make decisions that activate the body. We know that there is a connection between body (physical) and soul (spiritual).
The whole body connects to the brain that is the ‘command centre’ of the body. The functions of the body depend of its physical state as well as mental state (=soul capabilities).
Every part of the body responds to different levels of energy (see/study Tikun Hanefesh). The penis is the aspect of Yessod. Yessod is the channel of light to the world. On the physical level, it is used to bring out energy of life that was originated from the brain, through the spine. Then it is ‘cooked’ in the testicles (transformed from spiritual to physical sperms). These unique units of life energy shoot out through the penis into the vessel (woman’s womb).
The foreskin exists to enhance pleasures of the body and because of that it holds negativity that corrupts the unification process. When we remove it the light that can come to our vessel is from higher levels.
A person should also have clean body and pure consciousness to make better spiritual connection and draw light into his life.
In another comment by Peter we read
“did free will circumcision when I was 26 yrs old, the best decision I ever made, does it make a difference ? yes it does, after I always felt something was guiding and supporting me in a way it wasn’t before, like an angel .. felt / feel I am always connected / lucky. The foreskin is buried with the first dead, the drop of blood is the bridge between physical and spiritual. Hope my contribution is helpful.”
