133. אָמַר רַבִּי אַבָּא, נָאֶה הַדָּבָר שֶׁל רַבִּי פִּנְחָס בֶּן יָאִיר, שֶׁהֲרֵי לֹא כָתוּב לָכֵן הִנְנִי נוֹתֵן, אֶלָּא לָכֵן אֱמֹר הִנְנִי נֹתֵן לוֹ. וְכִי דָבָר זֶה הָיָה גָנוּז מֵחָסִיד זֶה תַּחַת יָדְךָ וְלֹא הָיִיתָ אוֹמֵר?! אַשְׁרֵי חֶלְקֵנוּ שֶׁזָּכִינוּ לִהְיוֹת בַּסִּיּוּעַ שֶׁל הַצֵּל הַקָּדוֹשׁ כָּאן.
Please read DZ 1116 before this
God replied to Moses telling him that he already has the Shechina with him and only he (Moses) can give it to Pinchas. The code to this conversation is revealed in the verse (Numbers 25:12) “ לָכֵן, אֱמֹר: הִנְנִי נֹתֵן לוֹ אֶת-בְּרִיתִי, שָׁלוֹם”
“Wherefore say: Behold, I give unto him My covenant of peace”
God gave Moses the ability to bestow on Pinchas the connection to the Shechina that gave Pinchas immortality. The keywords is when Moses was told to say “I give unto him”. It doesn’t say “God give Pinchas…”. Moses himself gave Pinchas the connection to the covenant and the Shechina.
The Zohar explains that we should not think for a moment that Moses lost something by giving Pinchas the covenant. It is like a candle that shares its light and never loses from itself.
This is a great lesson about sharing the light. Like Moses, we should always have in mind that everything is from the Light. Even if we have light that we earned previously with hard work. God can always take it from us for his own reason, meaning our Tikkun process.
The next lesson is that we can never lose earned light by sharing it with others. If we are asked to do something good and accept it, then if another person comes to share the action, we will lose nothing in letting him share the effort.
When we accept a work with whole heart, we create a vessel and the light comes and fulfills it. The first action lights the candle and when we share it with others we just add greater light to ourselves.
Sharing the Zohar study is very important for the soul. Each time we share it we should know that not only one person is affected but also the entire line of light is originated in you. When this person shares with another and another it can continue for many levels far in distance and in time.
I am not suggesting knocking on doors like Jehovah’s Witness used to do but you can simply share links on Facebook, Twitter or just forward emails, speak to people etc.
There are many people joining the Daily Zohar study following a link that someone shared on Facebook. Even if you don’t see or know the people who followed your link, you enjoy from the light he got connected to.
This is not a self promotion for the Daily Zohar. What ever enlightens you, share with others. All the wise and enlightening quotes from wise people are nice and you can share them but ONLY true connection to the Zohar has the power to remove darkness from the world.
