Daily Zohar # 1203 – Pinchas – Accept the pain because…
With the three types of Shofar blowing we sweeten the judgments. We learned in the Zohar that the liver holds and processes the negativity of the body. When negativity is sweetened, it goes to feed the heart that is considered the king of the body. It takes only what was purified.
The heart, that is the aspect of Zeir Anpin, accepts only our positive actions. All the negativity stays with the liver, that is the aspect of Sam-el, who is the minister of the negative side.
The major illnesses of the body come from the liver because of the negativity that went through it. The heart delivers health to the entire body because it takes only what is pure from the liver.
The anger is an attribute of the liver, expressed in the bile. Laughter and good times are attributes of the spleen.
Ecclesiastes 7:3 “טוֹב כַּעַס, מִשְּׂחוֹק: כִּי-בְרֹעַ פָּנִים, יִיטַב לֵב. ”
“Vexation is better than laughter; for by the sadness of the countenance the heart may be gladdened. ”
The Zohar explains that God is using the anger as a strap to whip the righteous with illnesses and pain. It is better that laughter and good time that come form the aspect of the spleen that is controlled by Lili-th, who is the female partner of Sam-el. This energy is used to give the people rewards for their low level positive actions in this world. They enjoy a temporary comfort in their lives, but as like the nature of Lili-t, it is deceiving because no rewards are left for the world to come.
God ‘pushes’ the correction process of the righteous people to cleanse, then to a higher level so they can enjoy greater ability to connect to the light of the Final Redemption.
In the temporary world trapped by the illusion, many people do few good things and expect endless reward from God. If one feels that his life is good and without challenges, then he needs to be worried about his spiritual work. Until Mashaich comes, EVERYTHING good is temporary and should be served as a tool to better the soul.
