Daily Zohar # 1356 – Pinchas – The Light is in the details
Zohar Pinchas, Vol. 20 (English)/Vol 15 (Hebrew)
“כִּי יִקָּרֵא קַן-צִפּוֹר לְפָנֶיךָ בַּדֶּרֶךְ בְּכָל-עֵץ אוֹ עַל-הָאָרֶץ, אֶפְרֹחִים אוֹ בֵיצִים, וְהָאֵם רֹבֶצֶת עַל-הָאֶפְרֹחִים, אוֹ עַל-הַבֵּיצִים–לֹא-תִקַּח הָאֵם, עַל-הַבָּנִים”
“If you come across a bird’s nest beside the road, either in a tree or on the ground, and the mother is sitting on the chicks or on the eggs, do not take the mother with the sons.”
The ‘eggs’ is the aspect of those who study Torah at the simple story level. The ‘chicks’ is the aspect of those who study Torah a little bit deeper. The ‘sons’ is the aspect of those who study all levels and secrets of the Torah.
“וְעָשִׂיתָ מְנֹרַת, זָהָב טָהוֹר; מִקְשָׁה תֵּעָשֶׂה הַמְּנוֹרָה, יְרֵכָהּ וְקָנָהּ, גְּבִיעֶיהָ כַּפְתֹּרֶיהָ וּפְרָחֶיהָ, מִמֶּנָּה יִהְיוּ”
“And you shall make candelabra of pure gold: of beaten work shall the candelabra be made, even its base, and its shaft; its cups, its knops, and its flowers, shall be of one piece with it.”
Here the Zohar mentions God’s instruction to make the Menorah, candelabra for the Holy Tabernacle. The instruction of ‘make candelabra’ is a general description but the rest of the verse and the following verses give detailed description on how to construct it. When they completed the making of the Menorah they had an important tool that drew the light of Zeir Anpin to the tabernacle and sustain it and all Israelites.
The Torah has seventy layers of secrets and only with the study of the Zohar we can come closer to connecting to those levels. Rabbi Shimon gave us 70 studies on the first word of the Torah, “In the Beginning”, בראשית, in the book of Tikunei Hazohar. The Daily Zohar started and completed this study and everyone can go to the beginning and study it through 1069 lessons. The Holy Ari revealed to us that Rabbi Shimon wrote the Tikunim to correct the world of Malchut. For those who want to be a perfect ‘son’, study the Tikunei Zohar.
