“ אֶת-הַכֶּבֶשׂ אֶחָד, תַּעֲשֶׂה בַבֹּקֶר; וְאֵת הַכֶּבֶשׂ הַשֵּׁנִי, תַּעֲשֶׂה בֵּין הָעַרְבָּיִם”
“The one lamb you shall offer in the morning and the other lamb you shall offer at twilight”
The morning is the aspect of Right column, Chessed and Abraham. The Zohar connects that to the verse in Genesis 22:3 “וַיַּשְׁכֵּם אַבְרָהָם בַּבֹּקֶר” “And Abraham rose early in the morning”
The Morning is Light and it is the aspect of the first light created on the first day of Creation. The morning sacrifice connects us to that first light.
The twilight is the aspect of the Left Column, Gevurah and Isaac. The second sacrifice is offered to create a bridge of light between the day and night. It subdues the negativity that begins to grow in the afternoon. The code in the Torah is revealed in Genesis 24:63 “וַיֵּצֵא יִצְחָק לָשׂוּחַ בַּשָּׂדֶה, לִפְנוֹת עָרֶב” “And Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide”.
Our morning and afternoon prayers are the most important connections of the day because they replace the sacrifices done in the Holy Temple to connect the right and left column.
“קְחוּ עִמָּכֶם דְּבָרִים, וְשׁוּבוּ אֶל-יְהוָה; אִמְרוּ אֵלָיו, כָּל-תִּשָּׂא עָוֹן וְקַח-טוֹב, וּנְשַׁלְּמָה פָרִים, שְׂפָתֵינוּ”
“Take words with you, and return to YHVH. Tell him, “Forgive all our sins, and accept that which is good: so we offer our lips (prayers) as bulls.”
The Torah teaches us to make daily connection for our benefits sustaining a continuous flow of light to our lives.
This is a system that we should follow. People cannot expect to start praying when they are in some kind of trouble and get answered immediately. Some people come to Kabbalah with the belief that it will fix their lives. It’s true only after they make the personal correction that may take long time (especially if you have a big stubborn ego) and build a better and purer vessel.
Field, שדה is the aspect of Malchut.
