Daily Zohar # 1727 – Bo – Better be silent
Job was one of Pharaoh’s advisers. When Pharaoh asked his advisers what to do with the Israelites Job advised Pharaoh to not kill them but to take their properties and control their bodies with hard labor.
“וַתְּסִיתֵנִי בוֹ לְבַלְּעוֹ חִנָּם”
“you incited me against him to destroy him without any reason”
The Zohar reveals that the judgment came on Job from his own words. He suffered exactly as he passed judgment on the Israelites.
“כִּי פֹעַל אָדָם, יְשַׁלֶּם-לוֹ; וּכְאֹרַח אִישׁ, יַמְצִאֶנּוּ.”
“”For He pays a man according to his work, And makes him find it according to his way”
All of our negative actions are registered with the other side and they can use our words and our actions against us.
Everything we manifest at the level of Malchut is registered as a merit for us or a judgment. A spoken word is a manifestation of inner energy. Satan and his armies keep records on us and they use them against us when we are least expecting.
Negative thoughts can not harm us if we don’t express them out or follow them with actions. A positive thought is registered to our merit even if we’re unable for some honest reason to fulfill it. It is so because the positive thought connects spiritually to where the Satan doesn’t have control. Negative thoughts don’t affect our records because Satan and the other side can only register negative words or actions.
Every word we utter out should be evaluated and well thought of before we say it because sooner or later our words will catch up with us.
Words and actions should come to existence in Malchut only if they are adding value to others, otherwise we should stay silent.
