וְכָל זֶה מִי גוֹרֵם שֶׁנּוֹלָד בָּרֹאשׁ אוֹ בַסּוֹף אוֹ בָאֶמְצַע? זֶה גִלְגּוּלוֹ שֶׁמְּחַיֵּב אוֹתוֹ, (וּמִי גוֹרֵם זֶה שֶׁנּוֹלָד שָׁם? מִשּׁוּם שֶׁמַּזָּלוֹ גָרַם שֶׁהִתְחַיֵּב מִלְמַעְלָה) לִפְנֵי שֶׁבָּא לָעוֹלָם, וּמִשּׁוּם זֶה אָמַר לְרַבִּי פְּדָת, שֶׁאִם תִּרְצֶה שֶׁאַחֲרִיב אֶת הָעוֹלָם? (וּמִי שֶׁנּוֹלָד בְּחֶסְרוֹן הַלְּבָנָה בְּכָל אַרְבָּעָה עָשָׂר הַיָּמִים, הוּא חָסֵר, שֶׁמַּזָּלוֹ גוֹרֵם, וְלָאָדָם הַזֶּה קָשִׁים לוֹ מְזוֹנוֹתָיו כִּקְרִיעַת יַם סוּף) (אֶפְשָׁר שֶׁתִּפֹּל בִּשְׁעַת מְזוֹנוֹת, שֶׁלָּאָדָם הַזֶּה שֶׁנּוֹלָד בְּי”ד שְׂמֹאל, קָשִׁים מְזוֹנוֹתָיו כִּקְרִיעַת יַם סוּף, שֶׁמְּזוֹן הַנְּשָׁמָה – תּוֹרָה, מְזוֹן הַגּוּף – לֶחֶם. בֵּין בָּזֶה וּבֵין בָּזֶה קָשִׁין מְזוֹנוֹתָיו), מִשּׁוּם שֶׁהֵם מִצַּד הַדִּין שֶׁנִּבְרָא בְדִין שֶׁהוּא אדנ”י, וּמִי שֶׁנִּבְרָא בְרַחֲמִים שֶׁהוּא יהו”ה, אֵין מְזוֹנוֹתָיו קָשִׁים, וּמְזוֹן הַנְּשָׁמָה – תּוֹרָה, מְזוֹן הַגּוּף – לֶחֶם מֵחֲמֵשֶׁת הַמִּינִים.

וּמִי שֶׁהוּא מִצַּד שֶׁל אָדָם שֶׁהוּא יו”ד ה”א וא”ו ה”א, נֶאֱמַר בּוֹ וְיִרְדּוּ בִדְגַת הַיָּם וְכוּ’, שׁוֹלֵט בַּכֹּל כְּמוֹ שֶׁנִּבְרָא בַּשָּׁמַיִם וּבָאָרֶץ וּבַיָּם, וְעָלָיו נֶאֱמַר מַה שֶּׁהָיָה כְּבָר הוּא, מַה שֶּׁהָיָה קֹדֶם שֶׁיָּבֹא לָעוֹלָם הַזֶּה, כְּמוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר אֵין כָּל חָדָשׁ תַּחַת הַשָּׁמֶשׁ, כְּבָר הוּא מְחֻיָּב לִהְיוֹת בָּעוֹלָם הַזֶּה, כְּמוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר בְּטֶרֶם אֶצָּרְךָ בַבֶּטֶן יְדַעְתִּיךָ. וַאֲשֶׁר לִהְיוֹת כְּבָר הָיָה, וַאֲשֶׁר הוּא לִהְיוֹת בָּעוֹלָם הַזֶּה כְּבָר הוּא מְחֻיָּב לִהְיוֹת קֹדֶם שֶׁיָּבֹא לָעוֹלָם לְכָאן בְּגִלְגּוּל.


Tikkun 69 – 20

Jeremiah 1:5
“ בְּטֶרֶם אצורך (אֶצָּרְךָ) בַבֶּטֶן יְדַעְתִּיךָ, וּבְטֶרֶם תֵּצֵא מֵרֶחֶם הִקְדַּשְׁתִּיךָ ”
“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee, and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee”

The soul and its tikkun precede the formation of the body in the womb. Once the soul is ‘plugged’ into the system and the body is no longer hosted by the mother, nothing can change the tikkun process except death and new incarnation.

For that reason God asked Rabbi Pedat (see Daily Zohar #771) if he wished to destroy the world and recreate it so he could come and be born on a different day.

The Zohar quotes Ecclesiastes 1:9 “there is nothing new under the sun”. This verse implies that there is new above the sun.

We should not be slave to the moon and the stars. We have a wonderful system to connect to the light 24x7x365. If we cling to the light on a daily basis with special attention to Shabbat, Rosh Chodesh and the holidays we can fill our life with the light that the moon doesn’t deliver.

The most important thing to remember is that what we feel as lack is not necessarily forced on us by the preplanned tikkun process. It’s not about being born rich or poor, being married or not, having children or not, being healthy or sick. Most people don’t get the light that awaits them because of blockages they made for themselves by acting negative or neglecting their correction.

The tikkun of this life time stops only with the last breath of a person. The only thing that matters is how clean and big the soul is when it leaves the world.

When the global tikun is finished and the Final Redemption comes, the moon will reveal the light in its fullness.

Isaiah 30:26
“וְהָיָה אוֹר-הַלְּבָנָה, כְּאוֹר הַחַמָּה, וְאוֹר הַחַמָּה יִהְיֶה שִׁבְעָתַיִם, כְּאוֹר שִׁבְעַת הַיָּמִים–בְּיוֹם, חֲבֹשׁ יְהוָה אֶת-שֶׁבֶר עַמּוֹ, וּמַחַץ מַכָּתוֹ, יִרְפָּא”
“Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of the seven days, in the day that YHVH bindeth up the bruise of His people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.’

  1. This is really interesting. I am wondering if everybody is actually working on their tikkun, whether they know it or not. I mean, some may call it karma or fate or fortune, some are very motivated to change and some are not, but is everyone contributing to the completion of the global tikkun whether they have an understanding or not?

      @Mia, Most people get ‘stuck’ with the desire for the self alone, ignoring the true purpose of life. It is not easy when a person is not fulfilled.
      The Zohar tells us that people do not follow the light for the right reason, they do from fear of losing what they have or fear of not getting what they want.
      The work should be with love because it brings us closer to the goal of becoming one with uninterrupted flow of light, meaning Mashiach and the Final Redemption.

    But few days ago there was strong statement expressed that nothing is random. Everything is planned.
    So the fact of existing blockages ( someone had to define there are blockages observer-friend,therapist, teacher ) they are still part of the correction process ( tikkun ). And therefore part of correction process is to overcome blockages.

    Let us remember few months ago someone’s desire expressed on DailyZohar as What portions of Zohar to scan/read to come nearer to the fullfillment of the desire to have chance for study. So the current status of unfulfillment is blockage or part of the tikkun?

    Were not we slappy here and quick in judgement in the statement about blockages versus tikkun?

So, we say yes to questions about the article; yes to discussions about Zohar study; and yes to questions about kabbalistic wisdom. If it comes with the desire to share, learn and grow spiritually, it is welcome with Love.
