Daily Zohar # 1715 – Shemot – Faith is the key
Song of Songs 4:8
“אִתִּי מִלְּבָנוֹן כַּלָּה, אִתִּי מִלְּבָנוֹן תָּבוֹאִי; תָּשׁוּרִי מֵרֹאשׁ אֲמָנָה, מֵרֹאשׁ שְׂנִיר וְחֶרְמוֹן, מִמְּעֹנוֹת אֲרָיוֹת, מֵהַרְרֵי נְמֵרִים.”
“Come with me from Lebanon, my bride; come with me from Lebanon. Gift from the head of Amana, from the peak of Senir and Hermon, from the dens of lions, from the mountains of leopards.”
When the Israelites came out of Egypt and arrived Mount Sinai the Holy One Blessed be He called on the higher light of Chokmah to welcome the Israelites before receiving the Torah.
‘Lebanon’ numerical value 138 (same ‘Kabbalah, קבלה + 1’ ). It is the connection to the upper three Sefirot that the Israelites needed in order to receive the Torah.
‘Gift from Amanah’ is the aspect of the Torah given to the people with connection to ‘Amanah’ that is the supernal faith. The root of Amanah אמנה is ‘אמן’, ‘Amen’ that represents אמונה, ‘faith’ in the words of God.
“וַיִּקַּח סֵפֶר הַבְּרִית, וַיִּקְרָא בְּאָזְנֵי הָעָם; וַיֹּאמְרוּ, כֹּל אֲשֶׁר-דִּבֶּר יְהוָה נַעֲשֶׂה וְנִשְׁמָע”
“He took the Book of the Covenant and read it aloud to the people, and they said, “We will do and listen all that YHVH has spoken.”
The Israelites received the Torah with complete faith expressing their willingness to do even before understanding the Torah, then they said “we will listen”.
The upper three sefirot are above the world of Tikkun. The process is the six sefirot of Zeir Anpin and Malchut is the manifestation.
To connect to upper 3 sefirot we must have faith because it’s the only spiritual tool that can take you to that level.
