Daily Zohar # 1767 – Vayakhel – Bad News
Continued from previous DZ
Psalms 72:5 “יִירָאוּךָ עִם-שָׁמֶשׁ”, “they will see you with the sun”
When the sun rises up the children of Israel come with prayers and praises to the ways of God.
“הוֹדוּ לַיהוָה, קִרְאוּ בִשְׁמוֹ; הוֹדִיעוּ בָעַמִּים, עֲלִילוֹתָיו”
“Oh give thanks to YHVH, call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples.”
The Zohar reveals that if the people of the world were not blind and closed-hearted, they would not be able to stand the sound of the sun in its path, praising God.
The sun provides the energy of Binah that is the life force that nourishes the world. The spiritual energy is high and intense and no one on earth is able to grasp or connect directly to it. Our morning prayers should be within the first three hours of the morning and best if it’s done when the first light of the sun appears in the horizon.
In paragraph 26 above we read that Rabbi Shimon gives a warning to his son and his students to hide themselves for three days. He asked them not to go out because the angel of death is in the city with permission to harm anyone on his path.
If a person is seen by him, the angel of death goes up to the Holy One Blessed be He and presents all the sins of that man and waits until he receives a judgment. If he is permitted then he kills that person.
The Zohar teaches us to avoid connecting to any form of negativity. If we see negativity on our path (people fight, accidents on the road, and similar events) it is like facing a form of judgment. The eye connection makes us part of that event. We should avoid looking at such things and pass quickly without giving it attention. If you see people hurting and you can definitely and professionally help then do so with the right consciousness, otherwise leave the area as soon as possible.
