Tikkun 5 – 14
The Shechina is the Light that holds the vessel in Malchut. It is what keeps existence in place with the dynamics of time, space and motion. When negativity is removed from the world, the vessel will exist in a state of rest, meaning continuous/uninterrupted flow of light. This state brings total fulfillment to the vessel.
The current state is that, the Shechinah is ‘locked’ in exile (Malchut) until God (YHVH) brings the Final Redemption. She is with us to help us with the pain of staying away from the light. Without her, there could be no life in this world.
Song of songs 3:5
“הִשְׁבַּעְתִּי אֶתְכֶם בְּנוֹת יְרוּשָׁלִַם, בִּצְבָאוֹת, אוֹ, בְּאַיְלוֹת הַשָּׂדֶה: אִם-תָּעִירוּ וְאִם-תְּעוֹרְרוּ אֶת-הָאַהֲבָה, עַד שֶׁתֶּחְפָּץ”
“’I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, by the gazelles, and by the hinds of the field, that ye awaken not, nor stir up love, until it please.’”
God in the aspect of Zeir Anpin, placed the ‘daughters of Jerusalem’ (Malchut) under oath that it cannot awaken the ‘love’ (Light of Redemption) until the vessel is filled with the desire for him.
In this Zohar section, Rabbi Shimon stands and prays to the Endless, Bless be He, to break the oath of the ‘son’ that is Zeir Anpin and bring redemption to the Shechinah. He is offering God different excuses and suggestions to change the original decision of the son.
First excuse is that God, the Endless, is above the Father that is Chokmah and The Mother that is Binah. They are above the son and they can change any of his decisions. Also even three simple people can be qualified to annul vows.
Rabbi Shimon continues and says that if the Endless is not accepting that reason, then he is asking him and all the righteous souls in the study schools (Yeshivah) in heavens to support him with his request. He asks acceptance for the merit of Moses that was always with the Shecinah and connected through the central column. Moses was also ready to give his soul for the Israelites in return for forgiveness of their sins. For these reasons and for Moses, Rabbi Shimon tells the Endless that he should cancel the oath and end the exile.
