Daily Zohar # 1574 – Masei – Revealing the purpose of the 42 journies
The Above Zohar is from the portion of Tezaveh paragraph #83
The Zohar reveals that when the Israelites left Egypt with the count of 600 thousands Malchut receives strength and elevated itself. The moon, that is the aspect of Malchut, shined.
The Holy one Bless be He guided Israel to go through the wilderness on the way to the Promised Land. The wilderness has a strong hold on the negative side and its minister, sam-el. God took us through 42 journeys giving us the opportunity to break the forces of the other side forever. The Zohar uses the term ‘to crush his head’ because the negative side is the Snake that has forked tongue. The Snake is a lyre and hides the truth from us.
Because of its deception the Israelites sinned and lost the opportunity to break the Snake forever.
Lesson: While revealing the force of the 42 letter names using the Ana B’Koach we should meditate to break all negativity on our path. We should be pure in heart and actions so the powerful prayer will significantly benefits us.
