Daily Zohar # 1491 – Kedoshim – Reviving the soul
12. אָמַר לוֹ, יִרְאַת ה’ כָּתוּב, וְלֹא תוֹרָה. אָמַר לוֹ, כָּךְ הוּא וַדַּאי, שֶׁהֲרֵי הַתּוֹרָה בָּאָה מִצַּד הַגְּבוּרָה. אָמַר לוֹ, וּמִשָּׁם יָצְאָה?! מִכָּאן יָצְאָה! שֶׁכָּתוּב רֵאשִׁית חָכְמָה יִרְאַת ה’, וְכָתוּב יִרְאַת ה’ טְהוֹרָה.
13. וְתוֹרָה נִקְרֵאת קְדֻשָּׁה, שֶׁכָּתוּב כִּי קָדוֹשׁ אֲנִי ה’, וְזוֹ הַתּוֹרָה שֶׁהִיא הַשֵּׁם הַקָּדוֹשׁ הָעֶלְיוֹן. וְעַל כֵּן, מִי שֶׁמִּשְׁתַּדֵּל בָּהּ נִטְהָר, וְאַחַר כָּךְ מִתְקַדֵּשׁ, שֶׁכָּתוּב קְדֹשִׁים תִּהְיוּ. לֹא כָתוּב קְדֹשִׁים הֱיוּ, אֶלָּא תִּהְיוּ, תִּהְיוּ וַדַּאי. אָמַר לוֹ, כָּךְ הוּא, וּמִקְרָא כָּתוּב, (שמות יט) וְאַתֶּם תִּהְיוּ לִי מַמְלֶכֶת כֹּהֲנִים וְגוֹי קָדוֹשׁ, וְכָתוּב אֵלֶּה הַדְּבָרִים וְגוֹ’.
Translation from paragraph 11 above.
“Come and see, a person can never become pure unless it is done by the words of the Torah”
The words of Torah don’t have contact with impurity and because of that the Torah can purify the impure.
The Torah is the medicine as it said in Proverb 3:8
“רִפְאוּת, תְּהִי לְשָׁרֶּךָ; וְשִׁקּוּי, לְעַצְמוֹתֶיךָ”
“It will be healing to your flesh and a potion to your bones”
“תּוֹרַת יְהוָה תְּמִימָה, מְשִׁיבַת נָפֶשׁ; עֵדוּת יְהוָה נֶאֱמָנָה, מַחְכִּימַת פֶּתִי”
“The law (Torah) of YHVH is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of YHVH is sure, making wise the simple”
“יִרְאַת יְהוָה, טְהוֹרָה–עוֹמֶדֶת לָעַד”
“the fear (awe) of YHVH is pure, enduring forever; ”
The Zohar challenges itself and points to the words saying ‘fear of YHVH’ not fear of Torah. The Zohar continues to explain that the meaning is in the Torah. The Torah came from the side of Gevurah and is called ‘fear of YHVH’.
Psalms 111:10 “רֵאשִׁית חָכְמָה, יִרְאַת יְהוָה” “The fear of YHVH is the beginning of wisdom (Chokmah)”
The beginning of Wisdom is the Torah, Chokma and it’s always pure.
Most Kabbalah organizations and teachers focus mostly on the moral aspect of Kabbalah teaching. It is easy to explain, understood and accepted by the people. They don’t do enough to push people to read and scan Zohar on a daily basis. As we learn from the Zohar it is the most important soul cleansing tool in existence. If you study kabbalah and or Zohar classes and the teacher doesn’t read from the Zohar book then the lesson is spiritually flawed. You may learn how to act as a good person but it won’t help your soul if you don’t read or listen to the Zohar. Talking about a medicine without consuming it won’t help much unless you are receptive to Placebo.
Being a good person doesn’t give much spiritual points or elevations. A person should be actively revealing light by using the Zohar as a big open well of life. We should dig in and share it with others.
You and thousands others receive the same Daily Zohar on a daily basis. It creates unity and helps in cleansing your environment and the world.
Http://UnityZohar.com is an amazing and unique tool for revealing light but it’s less appreciated because there is no commentary. It is just pure light.
How does the Unity Zohar work?
The entire text of the Zohar was inserted into a database organized by paragraphs. The first reader on the site gets the first two paragraphs from the database. All the following requests from anywhere in the world, will get the next two paragraphs from the Zohar, and so on.
The thread that connects all readers can run around the world many times until the scanning of the Zohar is completed. When the last paragraph is read then we increment the reading cycle counter by one and the process starts over again.
The more participants, the faster the Zohar is completed. Every participant in the reading cycle has the merit, like they complete the reading by themselves for each cycle they participate.
Please share this project with your friends to bring the light of the Zohar to shine all over the world. Be one soul with all the souls that seek and wish the light of the Creator to shine over the entire world. At the opening of the Idra Rabah, which is the Greater Assembly, Rabbi Shimon sat with the friends in a circle. They held hands and Rabbi Shimon said ”It’s all depending on the love among us”. With every completion of Zohar scanning cycle we increase the light in the world and help fulfill the prophecy of the Zohar ”בספרא דא יפקון מן גלותא ברחמי” ”With this book (The Zohar) they will go out of exile with mercy”. Exile is the state of distance from the Light that we are experiencing now. The chaos in the world is the result of lack of Light. Let us spread the Light unconditionally everywhere we can reach.
