Daily Zohar # 1262 – Pinchas – One special man, 70 oxen
Continued from previous DZ
When the High Priest enters the Holy of Holies in the Temple, he is ready to sacrifice his soul for the unification with the Light. In this process he recites a holy name drawing the light that sustains the entire world. The Levites sing with joy while escorting him to his important work.
The Israelites wait in silence to see the High Priest come out safe. They rejoice when his work is successfully completed. The Holy Throne and the Holy Creatures, Lion, Ox, Eagle and Man become fully connected to the lower levels and the Light flows to the world through the seven Sefirot. Few days later that light is distributed to the 70 nations of the world through a process of sacrificing 70 oxen.
If the High Priest doesn’t have pure consciousness at the time of the connection, his soul leaves his body and he dies.
Our consciousness is the exercise of the soul in controlling and determining the outcome of our actions. Without consciousness the body is just flesh connected to the materials of the world to prolong its temporary state.
To prolong life we need to connect to the source of Life with pure consciousness. We should be ready to let go of all attachments to the physical world when our time to leave is due. Even if we are rich and famous we should get to the point of knowing that the ultimate life’s goal is about having the merit to be in the Final Redemption and the Resurrection.
