Daily Zohar # 1435 – Ki Tisa – The calf grew up to be a bull and we still worship him
Zohar Ki Tisa
The sin of the Golden Calf story is in the portion of Ki Tissa. Because of it Moses lost his elevation and we all lost a state of immortality.
The people were impatient for the return of Moses. The leaders of the Erev Rav, which were the two sons of Balaam pushed the Israelites with their magic to give Gold and build an alternative to God on earth. The Golden Calf was created and It was not as we would imagine it, a solid gold in a shape of a calf. It was a magical and animated entity.
When the people felt a distance from Moses and the Light they looked for alternative power on the physical level.
This is our weakness and we should overcome it before the coming of Mashiach.
At a time of weakness in America, the symbol of strength was a golden charging bull. Read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charging_Bull
It is called “The icon of wall street”
address: 26 Broadway
Weight 3200 kg
Length is 4.9 meters
The numbers are significant because there is nothing random in the created world.
The artist Di Modica spent some $360,000 to create, cast, and install the sculpture following the 1987 stock market crash as a symbol of the “strength and power of the American people”.
We live in a time when most people are Golden Calf worshipers. They focus only on their wealth and material comfort. They accumulate as many pyramids (one dollar bill http://qsl.net/w5www/dollarbill.html) as they can have honestly or not in their bank accounts.
Some rich people stay close to the Light with the agenda to have ‘relationship’ with the light so he can protect their wealth and social status. These people should find the path to have certainty in the light in every action they make. They should use their wealth honestly and wisely. No simple accumulation of money in the bank but to seek growth and expansion that would benefit many others. God made them channels to share their blessings with others.
1 Chronicles 29:14 (I suggest reading the entire chapter)
” וְכִי מִי אֲנִי, וּמִי עַמִּי, כִּי-נַעְצֹר כֹּחַ, לְהִתְנַדֵּב כָּזֹאת: כִּי-מִמְּךָ הַכֹּל, וּמִיָּדְךָ נָתַנּוּ לָךְ”
“But who am I, and who are my people, to stop from giving generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.”
