Daily Zohar # 1376 – Pinchas – Opening gates
Zohar Pinchas, Vol. 20 (English)/Vol 15 (Hebrew)
In the following DZ studies the Zohar reveals 12 special precepts that elevate Malchut to receive Light.
First special precept
“אָנֹכִי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ, אֲשֶׁר הוֹצֵאתִיךָ מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם מִבֵּית עֲבָדִים”
“I am YHVH your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slaves.”
The first word of the Ten Commandments is אנכי, means “I am” and the Zohar explains that it’s the beginning of the revelation of God and his government over the created worlds.
אנכי is אין and כ
אין means ‘nothingness’ and it comes from the word אלהינו, ‘our God’.
כ is for כתר, ‘crown’, ‘Keter’, a point where we know nothing about what precedes it.
Keter is for supernal mother, Binah. The Torah makes special connection to Binah with the fifty times it mentioned the Exodus, ‘יציאת מצרים’. These fifty places are gates to Binah and with the study of the Torah we open those gates to help us make the correction of the world. After leaving Egypt we had to count the ‘Omer’ for 7 weeks and on the fiftieth day we received the Torah on Mount Sinai. The task now is for the Israelites to bring the world into the Torah and open 49 gates to Binah. Then God will send Mashiach from Keter with the light of יחידה ‘Yechida’ of Keter to open the fiftieth gate to reveal the light of the Final Redemption.
The supernal mother, Binah, includes within it the ten sayings of “And God said let there be…”. They came from Chokmah, the Father, and created the world. The paths for the Creation came through the 32 times the name of God, אלהים appears in the story of Creation.
The Ten Commandments were given as five on one tablet and five on the second one. First five are for Keter, Chokmah, Binah, Chessed and Gevurah that lead to the central column. The next five continued from central column, Tiferet, with Netzach, Hod, Yessod and Malchut.
