Daily Zohar # 1513 – Bechukotai – The magic power of the night
Continued from previous DZ
“וַיֹּאמֶר אֲלֵיהֶם, לִינוּ פֹה הַלַּיְלָה, וַהֲשִׁבֹתִי אֶתְכֶם דָּבָר”
“And he said to them, “Lodge here tonight, and I will bring back word to you,”
Balaam told Balak’s messengers to wait for him until the night passed so he couln give them an answer. The Zohar explains that the negative forces are released at night. Balaam could then connect to them, elevate himself in the impure system and get answers.
At night we experience the absence of light. To understand why at night, we need to go back to the moment before the Big Bang. There was only Endless Light and no space of any kind. In order to create the worlds for us the Endless Light created a space. It was described in the Tree of Life by the Ari as “The Endless Light distances himself from a middle point equally to all directions,” creating a sphere. This is the beginning of a simple emptiness and the lack of Light. This was the foundation to all desires that have existed and will exist in every vessel until the Light of the Endless will have continuous flow from outside the ‘sphere’ into the inner ‘residents’, which are the four worlds. The world of Adam Kadmon will be the bridge for that Light and process.
That ‘darkness’ is the aspect of the first night and that is why the Hebrew day begins at night fall. The negative forces are expressed strongly because their desire for the light gives them power to ‘suck’ the light from anyone that carries it.
After the moment of darkness the Creator gave the command “Let there be Light” and all the worlds were created at once. This process is called by the scientists “The Big Bang”. They also can tell us that the first particles of Creation came from photons (Light). The photons were cancelling each other as matter and anti-matter but soon they developed a ‘flaw’ and the particles began to form atoms and more matter (Dr. Neil DeGrass Tyson). The forces of lack (negative side) that were created in potential state when the Endless Light created the space were responsible to the ‘breaking of the vessels’ that actually formed the ten Sefirot and the entire system of the Tree of Life.
I have to stop here because it’s time to publish this study on the Daily Zohar. I apologize and maybe one day I will have the merit to teach you the study of the Tree of Life in my special way. Until then pray for me to have the time, energy and resources to continue.
