Tikkun 70 – 48
The three daily prayers have the aspects of
Morning – Chessed – South – Right column – White
Afternoon – Gevurah – North – Left column – Red
Evening – Tiferet – East – Central column – Blue (green in it)
The tree of life shows us that Binah is above Gevura and feeds it on the left column. The sages teach us that to be rich we should turn north. “הרוצה להעשיר יצפין” .
The true meaning of it is that in order to be rich one should connect to Binah through the left column,
A strong desire opens the north gate that connects us to Binah and allows its energy to flow into our lives.
“ רַק בַּאֲבֹתֶיךָ חָשַׁק יְהוָה, לְאַהֲבָה אוֹתָם”
“Only YHVH had a desire in your fathers to love them”
יְהֹוָה is the name of God with the Nikkud of חולם Cholam, שבא Sheva and קמץ Kamatz. The initials are חשק – ‘Desired’. The secret that Zohar reveals to us here is that the letters of his name were revealed to the patriarchs so they can channel the light for us.
“ כִּי בִי חָשַׁק, וַאֲפַלְּטֵהוּ; אֲשַׂגְּבֵהוּ, כִּי-יָדַע שְׁמִי.”
“’Because he has desire upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.”
The Nikud of the YHVH name reveals different aspects of its light. The knowledge (connection) of the name elevates us as the verse above promises.
The first two words כִּי בִי, “because upon me”, has the numerical value of 42 to indicate connection to the force of Creation.
“כִּי-בִי, יִרְבּוּ יָמֶיךָ; וְיוֹסִיפוּ לְּךָ, שְׁנוֹת חַיִּים.”
“For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased.”
The first two words, כִּי-בִי, are the same as the one above and here the Zohar explains that the 42 letter name that we know as Ana B’Koach can help us connect to all the Sefirot (Days) and achieve greater spiritual elevation (years).
Aspect of time doesn’t exist in the spiritual system so the terms of days and years point to spiritual ‘distance’.
The fourth commandment of “Honor your father and mother: that your days may be long upon the land which YHVH your God given you” is not about length of life but better connection to the spiritual system and YHVH.
