Daily Zohar # 1414 – Mishpatim – From 6 hours to 6 thousand years
Zohar Mishpatim – 1
The Zohar reveals to us that the portion of Mishpatim conceals the secrets of reincarnation process and the different causes for it.
“וַיִּיצֶר יְהוָה אֱלֹהִים אֶת-הָאָדָם, עָפָר מִן-הָאֲדָמָה, וַיִּפַּח בְּאַפָּיו, נִשְׁמַת חַיִּים; וַיְהִי הָאָדָם, לְנֶפֶשׁ חַיָּה”
“Then YHVH God formed the man out of the dust from the ground and breathed the breath of life into his nostrils, and the man became a living being. ”
This verse teaches us that there are two elements to human beings. First element is a body that comes from the ground, which is physical and the second element is the soul that gives life to the body. The soul comes from God and therefore it’s not destructible.
Then God put the man in the Garden of Eden and gave him one simple instruction. Eat from everything in the Garden except from the Tree of Knowledge Good and Bad. Adam had six hours to stay away from connecting to the Tree of Knowledge and if he were to succeed then he would have competed the Tikkun of the entire Creation. Because he failed, we inherited the correction process for six thousand years.
Please don’t blame Adam because he was destined to fail so we can all enjoy the Final Redemption. Just keep working on your Tikun and help others with theirs. Together with the Zohar we will get there.
