“אֱנוֹשׁ, כֶּחָצִיר יָמָיו; כְּצִיץ הַשָּׂדֶה, כֵּן יָצִיץ.”
“As for man, his days are as grass; as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.”
“ כִּי רוּחַ עָבְרָה-בּוֹ וְאֵינֶנּוּ; וְלֹא-יַכִּירֶנּוּ עוֹד מְקוֹמוֹ.”
“For the wind (spirit, soul) passeth in it, and it is gone; and the place thereof knoweth it no more.”
The Zohar discusses these verses and brings them as examples to our life cycle. Similar to a grass we come out of the ground, which means coming out of invisible roots. We pop out in the physical world of Malchut as human beings.
The soul, like a wind, passes through the body and in short time it’s gone.
The body is 100% physical, constructed from the matter of this world. The soul is ‘forced’ into the physical body in the concealed and protected environment. The body grows and is shaped according to the soul that defines it. The soul can work its correction process while in the body and when its gone, the body disappears and is forgotten.
Most people wish to grow and spread out like wild grass. They wish to become visible and big, but in a very short time they find out that their lives are about to end. The body gets weaker and that allows the soul to come forward and seek some light to help it pass to the next world. Most people find the Light of the Zohar after experiencing the difficulties of life in the material world and when they feel the light they renew the desire for the comfort and temporary things of this world.
We all should focus on the light because it is the best investment for our future. The body is soon to be gone but the soul can live forever.
