“וַיַּרְאֵנִי, אֶת-יְהוֹשֻׁעַ הַכֹּהֵן הַגָּדוֹל, עֹמֵד, לִפְנֵי מַלְאַךְ יְהוָה; וְהַשָּׂטָן עֹמֵד עַל-יְמִינוֹ, לְשִׂטְנוֹ ”
“And he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to accuse him. ”
In his vision and prophecy Zechariah saw the High Priest standing in front of the angel of God and Satan was on his right side ready to point to his iniquities.
The Zohar teaches us that if the High Priest gets such a ‘treatment’, then what about the rest of the people.
Our actions are evaluated everyday and create positive or negative energy (angels) that support us or go against us.
“וִיהוֹשֻׁעַ, הָיָה לָבֻשׁ בְּגָדִים צוֹאִים; וְעֹמֵד, לִפְנ הַמַּלְאָךְ. ”
“Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel ”
The ‘filthy’ garments are the ‘attachments’ that we add to our souls with our actions and desires in the physical world.
“וַיַּעַן וַיֹּאמֶר, אֶל-הָעֹמְדִים לְפָנָיו לֵאמֹר, הָסִירוּ הַבְּגָדִים הַצֹּאִים, מֵעָלָיו; וַיֹּאמֶר אֵלָיו, רְאֵה הֶעֱבַרְתִּי מֵעָלֶיךָ עֲוֹנֶךָ, וְהַלְבֵּשׁ אֹתְךָ, מַחֲלָצוֹת ”
“And he answered and spoke unto those that stood before him, saying: ‘Take the filthy garments from off him.’ And unto him he said: ‘Behold, I cause thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with robes.’ ”
When we arrive to the next life all ‘physical’ attachments should be removed from the soul in a process of cleansing that is different for each soul based on the level of desires for the physical existence.
Righteous souls go through this process even if it is for a short pass that removes any link to the material existence.
After the cleansing process, the soul receives spiritual garments to fit its level that is based on the amount of light it revealed in the world.
