“שְׁתֵה-מַיִם מִבּוֹרֶךָ; וְנֹזְלִים, מִתּוֹךְ בְּאֵרֶךָ.”
“Drink water from your own cistern And fresh water from your own well.”
The Zohar explains this verse, telling us that the first water source in the verse implies static and empty vessel. The second source is a well that is a place where water keeps coming from a spring.
Both places represent a vessel and female aspect. The first one is poor because it doesn’t have connection to Zeir Anpin, meaning flowing Light.
The second is a vessel with unification with Zeir Anpin that fills up the vessel.
This explanation represents the process that we go through to receive the Light. Without proper vessel and unification to the upper levels we can not have the ‘water’ of life that we need in the world of Malchut.
The righteous people, Tzadikim, with their prayers, meditations and unifications have constant connection to Zeir Anpin and draw Light like a spring water and a well that always brings water.
We have a free app for iOS and Android devices (Links to apps below). It lists for you the death anniversary of great Tzadikim. Study the Tzadik and light a candle to make connection and benefit from the Light they revealed in the world.
Studying with tzadikim and supporting them, allow you to ‘drink’ from their ‘well’. The Zohar and the study of Zohar bring the aspect of unification with upper levels.
The Daily Zohar helps us in drawing light through the study of the Zohar. With every study we dig a new well of ‘water’ to wash and nourish our souls and lives.
