Zohar Pinchas, Vol. 20 (English)/Vol 15 (Hebrew)
Continued from previous DZ
When Malchut accepts the pleasures of the soul she is filled with Light of Glory and Chokmah and Binah sanctify her connection with Zeir Anpin. Then the Light from all the nine Sefirot above her spreads and grows inside of her. The small point that she was before now turns into a full size H ה that is the last letter of the YHVH name.
To explain the process, I use the process of creating life in this world. From Keter comes the spark of light that ‘ignites’ Chokmah (Father) to connect to Binah (Mather). This is the higher level of male and female that resides in our right and left brain. These are the Right and Left Gates of the upper level that the High priest opens in the process of drawing light on Yom Kippur. When the two gates are open, male and female bond and the brain raises the consciousness of the connection. This bond creates balance and the central column, the eastern gate is open to let the light flow. On the lower level this is when the man draws light from the brain and through the brain, channels through the spine, the energy flows down. This is the result of the bond that is the Sefira of Da’at, Knowledge, as in “And Adam knew Eve…”.
The High priest turns to the left and channels the light to the head of ‘Malchut’. Down here the man holds the head of his wife, lowers her down because the light comes from above and kisses her with love. Love is אהבה with numerical value of 13, same as for אחד, ‘one’ that we studied in DZ 1325 and 1326. The kiss establishes the balance and unity that allows the Light to flow through Da’at between the right and the left down to Yessod (Penis) and through the י Y of Yessod יסוד fills the vessel.
Yessod is י and סוד, meaning ‘secret’ of the יY. ‘Secret’ is numerically 70 and it reveals the connection of all the Sefirot from Da’at through Zeir Anpin to Malchut.
The Zohar reveals that at the end of the connection the gate of the West, which is Yessod, opens with 72 עטרות ‘crowns’. The head of the penis is called in Hebrew עטרה, ‘crown’. 70 comes from the סוד ‘secret’ of Yessod and the 2 is for Zeir Anpin, man and Malchut, his wife.
“וְקָרָא זֶה אֶל-זֶה וְאָמַר, קָדוֹשׁ קָדוֹשׁ קָדוֹשׁ יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת; מְלֹא כָל-הָאָרֶץ, כְּבוֹדוֹ”
“And one called unto another, and said: Holy, holy, holy, is YHVH of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory”
When the three columns are together in holiness then the earth, Malchut, is filled with Light.
Understanding this process benefits us in everything we do in life and not just when making love with our spouse. Every good idea in our brain (after we filter the negative ones) should be processed as a gift of love from the Light and through opening the spiritual gates; we can draw light to fulfill and manifest the idea.
