Daily Zohar # 1664 – Chaye Sarah – Fight your free radicals
Zohar Chaye Sarah
“וַיִּשְׂאוּ, אֶת-יוֹנָה, וַיְטִלֻהוּ, אֶל-הַיָּם; וַיַּעֲמֹד הַיָּם, מִזַּעְפּוֹ.”
“So they picked up Jonah, threw him into the sea, and the sea stopped its raging.”
We go back to this verse and the Zohar explains that when the judgment on Jonah was made in the lower level the upper level of Binah rested.
Binah provides Light and is on the left column because from the upper three, Binah has the pure desire of receiving Light from Chokmah and deliver it to the lower levels. When the vessel in the lower corrupts the vessel the Light cannot fit into the vessel, it becomes impure and the aspect of judgment is reveled.
To purify the vessel we need to break it otherwise it would be in unstable and chaotic state that interacts with *‘free radicals’.
“בְּטוּב צַדִּיקִים, תַּעֲלֹץ קִרְיָה; וּבַאֲבֹד רְשָׁעִים רִנָּה.”
“When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices, And when the wicked perish, there is joyful shouting.”
The righteous have a good vessel that is full of Light and radiates in their environment. The wicked have a corrupted vessel with judgment that can be halted only when the vessel is no longer exists.
“הֶחָפֹץ אֶחְפֹּץ מוֹת רָשָׁע, נְאֻם אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה: הֲלוֹא בְּשׁוּבוֹ מִדְּרָכָיו, וְחָיָה.”
“Have I any pleasure in the death of the wicked, declares the Lord GOD, and not rather that he should turn from his way and live?”
God provides the Light to all vessels regardless if they are good or bad. Therefore, God does not want the wicked, which have a bad vessel, to die and release the Light in the vessel. God wants us to get rid of the ‘free radicals’ that attack the corrupted vessel. When that happens, God is joyous because the vessel can have its life back.
The following information on free radicals is from Wikipedia
• In chemistry, a radical (more precisely, a free radical) is an atom, molecule, or ion that has unpaired valence electrons or an open electron shell, and therefore may be seen as having one or more “dangling” covalent bonds.
With some exceptions, these “dangling” bonds make free radicals highly chemically reactive towards other substances, or even towards themselves: their molecules will often spontaneously dimerize or polymerize if they come in contact with each other. Most radicals are reasonably stable only at very low concentrations in inert media or in a vacuum.
• The free radical theory of aging (FRTA) states that organisms age because cells accumulate free radical damage over time. A free radical is any atom or molecule that has a single unpaired electron in an outer shell. While a few free radicals such as melaninare are not chemically reactive, most biologically-relevant free radicals are highly reactive. For most biological structures, free radical damage is closely associated.
